Ex-athletes say Ohio State doc groped, ogled men for years

Jim Jordan Allegations against me aren't true

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, has been accused by wrestlers he once coached at Ohio State University of failing to stop the wrestling team's doctor from sexually molesting them and other students.

"I don't believe them at all".

Jordan, a founder of the conservative Freedom Caucus, is one of the most powerful Republicans in Congress and a potential contender for speaker.

These three men told NBC News that everyone knew Strauss showered regularly with the students and would touch them inappropriately during appointments.

Jordan's spokesman said the Republican congressman is now working with investigators to set up a meeting. The congressman said he does remember Dr. Strauss, but echoed his spokesman by insisting he knew nothing of the alleged abuse.

Carlos said it was no problem and he completely understood, he was very chilled, and I still ended up with a penalty. It was going to take some time to contend for titles, he conceded, saying: " I think we are years away ".

The NBC report said former wrestler Mike DiSabato told the network that before going to the university with the molestation charges, he reached out to Jordan, who told him to "Please leave me out of it".

Former UFC world champion Mark Coleman has became the fifth former Ohio State wrestler to claim publicly that Rep.

Capitol Police are reviewing the emails sent to Jordan.

Both men, who wrestled for the school in the early "90s, have blamed Jordan for allegedly taking part in a cover-up scheme to hide Strauss" alleged sexual abuse.

"It's not true. I never knew about any type of abuse", Jordan told Politico. I believe Jim Jordan 100 percent. "The accusations that have been made by these couple of people who I don't know are...not consistent with the Jim Jordan I've come to know and admire and certainly not consistent what Jim espouses every day when nobody's looking", Meadows said, speaking with the Washington Examiner.

Supreme Court nomination has become a campaign issue
And if the votes result in a tie, Vice President Pence will hold the tie-breaking vote-and his anti-abortion stance is well-known. However, the senator later said she would be looking to precedent in her vote on Supreme Court nominees, suggesting Roe v.

"I don't believe them at all", he told reporters on Air Force One, before a raucous campaign rally in Montana.

Jordan has said he only learned about the abuse allegations this spring, when former students began speaking out. At the time, Jordan said he knew nothing about the alleged abuse by Strauss.

Another accuser and former wrestler at Ohio State University, Dunyasha Yetts, told NBC News that he and other teammates told Jordan about Strauss multiple times.

Jordan also questioned the timing of the controversy, noting that it came after he had tangled publicly with Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein during a hearing and "right when there is all this talk about Speaker's race". "It was very common knowledge in the locker room that if you went to Dr. Strauss for anything, you would have to pull your trousers down".

Dr. Strauss's inappropriate touching of athletes was open knowledge, he said, and he remembered talking about it with Mr. Jordan on road trips, in the sauna and after practices. "I was surprised to hear Jim say that he knew nothing about it", he added.
