Wrestler: Gym Jordan "snickered" when told about sexual abuse.

This was published several weeks ago, but bears repeating:

https://nypost.com/2018/07/10/ex-wrestler-jim-jordan-snickered-when-told-about-sexual-abuse/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

"A former Ohio State University wrestler on Tuesday claimed he told US Rep. Jim Jordan that the team doctor had touched him inappropriately — and the former assistant coach “just snickered.”

The athlete, who requested anonymity before speaking to CNN, is one of several ex-wrestlers from the program to accuse the Republican lawmaker and former assistant wrestling coach of knowing that Dr. Richard Strauss was sexually abusing boys on the team two decades ago — and failing to stop it."

.......

The congressman has repeatedly denied any knowledge of inappropriate behavior while he was an assistant coach at OSU between 1987 and 1995.

But the former wrestler called Jordan “phony” for claiming he didn’t know.

“He’s sitting there and directly lying,” he said. “Jordan is denying this because obviously, it would be political suicide for him.”

“Jim Jordan knew. He didn’t do anything about it,” the former wrestler added."....(more)

2. Jim Jordan is an immature man.

I can completely believe that he would react this way. He operates through life on a very shallow level.

3. Well Jim Jordan lies about everything on a regular basis and with a

Straight face, if not with a pseudo enraged visage over falsehoods, so we’re supposed to believe he’s a straight arrow about anything? He does it by getting in your face, hogging the cameras and microphones and yelling in faked outrage.

Yeah, sure.

5. OSU and the NCAA

does not want this story to expand,count on it. We are talking Billions of Dollars in Athletic Revenue.

But,this story is not going away. Way to many people were injured and now that a new person has come forward,watch the Sports Media try to shut this down.

7. I think , he is in a defensive stance.

Most likely he was a victim of this doctor and is in denial because he enjoyed it. He now has to live a lie in fear that his pleasure will be found out. Very common with male victims.

9. Nah, guilty

Not victim. He rode the loud mouth bully train in the District that Boehner gerrymandered for him.

Now, those who know the truth are exposing Jordan.
