Former OSU wrestler accuses Jim Jordan of lying about claiming to not have known about alleged abuse

Others are “going to come out” with information about how much Jordan knew, said a former team captain.


Rep. Jim Jordan. (R-OH 4th District)

214/20
A former Ohio State University wrestler accused Rep. Jim Jordan on Friday of lying about not knowing of sexual abuse allegations against a university doctor during his time as an assistant coach there 25 years ago. Adam DiSabato told CNN Friday that he had reported the complaints about the late Dr. Richard Strauss, who was accused of assaulting student athletes during their medical examination, to Jordan and the team's head coach during the time of the alleged abuse. Jordan has denied knowing about the allegations of abuse when he was assistant coach for the university's wrestling team from 1987 to 1995. There are several people who went up to him. We all complained," DiSabato told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day," claiming that the allegations about Strauss "was open discussion in the locker room. "We complained about it, but they never did anything about it," he added.

DiSabato's brother, Mike, said in 2018 that he was sexually abused by Strauss when he was a wrestler at OSU between 1987 and 1991 and claimed that Jordan, an Ohio Republican congressman since 2007 and a state legislator for more than a decade prior, had been aware of the alleged abuse. Adam DiSabato told CNN Friday that Jordan and Head Coach Russ Hellickson essentially told him to be quiet about the allegations. "Basically they both told me ... not to say anything to anybody in that environment that we were put in and to be happy where we were at," DiSabato said. A report released last year by Ohio State University and compiled by independent investigators detailed acts of sexual abuse believed to be carried out by Strauss against at least 177 students while he worked at the school between 1978 and 1998. The report found that university personnel were aware of complaints against Strauss, but failed to adequately investigate the allegations.
Why doesn't AG William Barr issue an order that this Jim Jordan scandal be investigated? Wrong party?

THis is why nobody buys into these Liberal stories anymore. 1 person out of hundreds all of a sudden, out of nowhere, steps forward to make a claim about something that may or may not have happened from years ago and you guys fall all over yourselves with unlimited accusations of something you know absolutely nothing about.

Sounds more like the fake Kavanaugh claims all over again. According to the idiocy of the left. everyone is guilty by accusation and then guilty at acquittal. They never heard of innocent until proven guilty.

After 4 years of crying wolf, you will never get any traction on accusations for years to come.

Jordan fits in quite well with Trump Party.
