Lawyers for Ohio State contradict Jim Jordanís claim heís not been contacted

Congressman Jim Jordan denied hearing about Dr. Richard Straussí alleged sexual abuse while Jordan was assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University.

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan never witnessed abuse by the Ohio State University wrestling teamís doctor and he hasnít been contacted by anyone investigating possible incidents that occurred while he was an assistant coach two decades ago, the Urbana Republicanís spokesman said Tuesday.

However, lawyers hired by OSU to probe the allegations said Jordan was contacted ó both by phone and email ó to request an interview, but he never responded.

Ian Fury, a spokesman for Jordan, said in a written statement that Jordan ďnever saw any abuse, never heard about any abuse, and never had any abuse reported to him during his time as a coach at Ohio State. He has not been contacted by investigators about the matter but will assist them in any way they ask, because if what is alleged is true, the victims deserve a full investigation and justice.Ē

A written statement from Porter Wright Morris & Arthur attorney Kathleen Trafford, provided by the university, said investigators had previously contacted Jordanís office by email and phone to request an interview.


There must be a few Republicans (probably in the wild) willing to tell the truth. Looks like the wheels might be coming off of Jimmy's ride to Speakership.

This appeared in the Columbus Dispatch, a pretty decent paper.
