Referee says he told Rep. Jim Jordan that Ohio State doctor performed sex act in shower

The referee said the response of Jordan and another former coach was, "Yeah, yeah, we know."

A professional referee says in a lawsuit filed Thursday that disgraced doctor Richard Strauss masturbated in front of him in a shower after a wrestling match at Ohio State University, and he reported the encounter directly to Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who was then the assistant coach.

“Yeah, that’s Strauss,” Jordan and then-head coach Russ Hellickson replied, according to the lawsuit, when the referee, identified in court papers as John Doe 42, told them about the incident. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Ohio, implies that Jordan's response to the incident, which the referee said happened in 1994, was essentially a shrug.

John Doe 42 is the second person to say he told Jordan directly about either being approached or molested by Strauss, who was found by independent investigators to have sexually abused 177 male students over two decades.

Jordan, a powerful Republican congressman and a top defender of President Donald Trump in the ongoing impeachment inquiry, has repeatedly denied knowing anything about what Strauss did to the wrestlers he helped coach from 1986 to 1994. He has said the allegations against him were politically motivated.

1. Jordan is such an effing liar.

He lies for himself, and he lies for Trump. They both make me sick.

2. Ever since the Hastert thing came out many years after he was gone from the House why doesn't the

House bring in these charges against Jordan NOW? You know if it were a Dem, even the other Dems would demand his resignation!

It seems like the worst actors in public life now always have dirt buried in their past! I'd like to see this JA have to fight for his own survival at the same time he's fighting for DT. Maybe it would be too much for him.

6. If the Ukraine bribe proves anything, it proves Trump would use any dirty trick he could. There

is zero doubt in my mind that you are right. He has the dirt, and who knows maybe he used the National Enquirer in a dirt gathering role there too ?
