Pelosi: Jim Jordan 'should have known' about OSU abuse

Source: The Hill


BY MIKE LILLIS - 07/12/18 03:04 PM EDT

Amid accusations that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) knew and did not report abuse of wrestlers as a college coach years ago, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Jordan "should have known."

“He is a person who has always said — oh my gosh, you look at his record — so-and-so should have known this, so-and-so should have known that,” Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol. “Well, many people say that he did know. And by his own standard he should have known.”

Pelosi noted that Jordan, a conservative firebrand who co-founded the House Freedom Caucus, has repeatedly held those in power — particularly Democrats — to high standards of accountability for misconduct under their watch. The same standard, she said, should now be applied to Jordan for any abuse of OSU’s wrestlers during his time with the team.

“Jim Jordan had a duty to protect them,” Pelosi said of the team members. “They say he failed.”

4. Republicans seem to have no problem with sexual assault.

Unless it's a Democrat accused of doing it.

Talk about lamenting how "partisan and tribal" it has become.

These kinds of double standards on display daily explain why it IS "partisan and tribal."

11. Not in some circles. TPM and the Krassensteins have been dogged on his trail.

8. Pelosi deftly illustrated that the Republic party...

...holds everyone to a higher standard than they hold themselves to.

Bless their little idiot hearts.

9. Unless he's a complete idiot, he knew...

Either way, he doesn't belong in Congress. Makes my heart warm when Rethugs are hoisted on their own petards.

12. Come on, Nancy!

Is that the best messaging you have? How about "Hopefully these men will have their chance to fully tell their story and Jim Jordan will cooperate regarding what he knew." Make his ass sound really guilty which it most likely is. You should have been better prepared for this.

13. We have a state rep who was fired from a title company for being corruptible

so he went into politics. You can't make this shit up. Oh, and BTW, he was immediately part of a corruption scheme that was outed, and multiple are in jail. I'm wondering when our bozo will be indicted.

Also, you Jordan absolutely knew, he just didn't care and he was part of the coach team and wasn't a "rat" but by his lack of action, he became lower than a rat.

He’s all but admitted hearing about ongoing sexual abuse, but because it happened in a “locker room,” it somehow doesn’t matter. @Jim_Jordan is too twisted for color teevee, and he needs to resign in disgrace. #JordanKnew
