This I didn't expect ... nor had I heard of prior accusations

Rep. Jim Jordan accused of participating in OSU sexual abuse cover-up by ex-wrestler

Ohio congressman and former Ohio State assistant wrestling coach Jim Jordan has been accused of participating in the cover up of widespread sexual abuse in OSU’s wrestling program.

Jordan was accused by Adam DiSabato, who was the team captain in the late 1980s and early 1990s. DiSabato was appearing in front of a hearing in the Ohio legislature as a witness for House Bill 249, which would waive the statute of limitations and allow the OSU athletes who had been abused to sue the university.

DiSabato told the House Civil Justice Committee that several team officials, including Jordan, were aware that the team’s open shower facilities put them at risk of being abused and harassed by a team doctor, but did nothing about it. Then DiSabato detailed a phone conversation between him and Jordan, in which Jordan asks DiSabato to help him cover up wrongdoing..............

Ain’t gonna find no dirt on Jordan.

So this alleged sexual abuse occurred sometime between the 1980s and mid-1990s, right?  Did DiSabato tell anyone?  Did he go to the police?

Sounds a little like those chicks who accused Roy Moore and Justice Kavanaugh. Make accusations of incidents alleging occurring decades ago, but at the time, no police report and no proof. 

Wonder who is paying Mr. DiSabato?  The same ones who paid Ford and those other women?

Jordan did nothing wrong.  This slur came out two summers ago and everything was debunked.

Either I don't remember or wasn't paying attention.  Interesting that this is resurfacing now right after the impeachment hearings.

A former Ohio State wrestler accused Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) of repeatedly “crying” and “begging” him not to corroborate accounts of sexual abuse against the university’s wrestling team doctor that occurred when Jordan was a coach.

Adam DiSabato — the brother of Mike DiSabato, the whistleblower who exposed the abuse by Richard Strauss — testified Wednesday during a public hearing in the state legislature that when the story came out in July 2018, he received a phone call from a tearful Jordan.

“Jim Jordan called me crying, crying, groveling, on the Fourth of July, begging me to go against my brother, begging me, crying for half an hour,” Adam DiSabato said, according to video of his testimony. “That’s the kind of coverups going on here.”

Jordan’s spokesman said DiSabato’s account was untrue.

Quote
“He’s throwing us under the bus, all of us,” DiSabato said. “He’s a coward. He’s not a leader; he’s a coward.”

He also accused Jordan of calling and pressuring other wrestlers to “flip their stories.”

“That’s the kind of person Jim Jordan is,” DiSabato said.

There is simply no limit to the extent member's TDS drags him and his humor, into the GOPBR gutter.
