    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.

    [DiSabato] also said Jordan called him repeatedly in July 2018, after media outlets quoted his brother, Michael DiSabato, saying Strauss’ abuse was common knowledge to those surrounding the wrestling program, including Jordan.

    “Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling… begging me to go against my brother…That’s the kind of cover-up that’s going on there,” he said.

    “Are you guys going to do what you’re voted to do?” he told lawmakers later. “That’s the only reason I’m here.”

    No wonder Gym is such an ally the felonious sexual assaulter in chief.

    GOP loves those family values from Hastert to Roy Moore to Gym.

    I hear Gym's defense will be yanking off his jacket, loosening the tie, and yelling really, really loud. After all that's enough, right?

    Yeah, no decency in the Republican Party. They will laugh off gay sexual assault in college locker rooms.

    A bunch of POS cult followers; just like Penn State fans from 10 years ago.

    Have we gotten this tweet from Trump yet?

    "The wrestler making these claims voted for Hillary, met with Adam Schiff and is just trying to make money from a book he is writing."

    Can't wait until he lists out the "4 facts" and then liddle Elyse gets up there and repeats the lies.

    I heard he's going to declare the wrestler a national champion if he agrees to provide dirt on Biden.

    I guess Bush 2 will be the last GOP leader to not be credibly accused of sexual assault. You guys will nominate Roy Moore too.

    I have read about 10 articles interviewing different wrestlers from the time jordan was a coach. There are things that just don’t add up and leave room for doubt in all these stories. Besides the statute of limitation issues, some of the stories are so out of context as to be unbelievable. For example, one wrestler said, that Dr. Strauss called him to his home to treat his poison ivy and then groped him at his home. This story on its surface is unbelievable. First, the guy is a wrestler, a div 1 wrestler was so helpless that he couldn’t fight back against a doctor doing something against his will? Secondly, he went to the doctors home? Who does that? I wasn’t there so I don’t know but many of these stories have huge holes in them. I will have to research this more to have a more definitive opinion. Right now I have a lot of doubt.

    You have to give it old, white, rural, poorly educated boomers. They always look the other way at sexual assault. Sad.

    They really would feel more comfortable if they posted on the Pedd State board.

    Who can say for sure who is believable or not. However, it is incredulous that Jordan wouldn't know what was going on in his program. Absurd. Seems eerily similar to Paterno.

    Let's not forget the wrestling coach that succeeded him. Surely he never had any issues with the law for lack of Christian values?
