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

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

Rep. Jim Jordan denies accusations he knew about alleged sexual abuse when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University. "I believe him 100 percent. No question in my mind", Trump said.

Jordan's star has risen rapidly in the Republican Party in recent years due to his role in the very conservative House Freedom Caucus.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), facing claims that he knew about alleged sexual abuse at Ohio State University three decades ago and failed to act, has scheduled an interview with lawyers investigating the case, his office said Thursday.

Earlier in the week, NBC first reported that former wrestlers said Jordan knew of alleged abuse by Strauss.

"Jim knew this - there's no ifs, ands or buts", Michael DiSabato, one of the former wrestlers named in the NBC account, said Tuesday in an interview. One man said he directly reported the abuse to Jordan; all four said Jordan could not have been unaware of the inappropriate behavior.

"I am not a flawless person, but ask any of the wrestlers and they will tell you everybody knew about Doc", Yetts said.

The WSJ also says that while computers do most of this work, human employees read about 8,000 emails to help train the software. An executive at another company said employees' reading of emails had become "common practice".

The university announced in April that it had started an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct against a former team physician, Dr. Richard Strauss, who killed himself in 2005.

The aide said Jordan's office contacted Capitol Police about the threats, which DiSabato denies having made.

Kathleen Trafford, a spokeswoman for Porter Wright, tried calling Jordan's office on June 12 but Fury said "we have no record of a call". Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach at the time Strauss is alleged to have groped male athletes.

Jordan acknowledged that Strauss was among faculty members and other employees who used the same open shower area as athletes in the building where they practiced, but he said he and other coaches with whom he has spoken weren't aware of any abuse by Strauss.

A spokesman for Mr. Jordan, a founder of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus who represents a solidly Republican district in OH, said the congressman was unaware of any abuse.

Former Ohio State wrestlers have said the team doctor showered with students and inappropriately touched them during appointments.

"I considered Jim Jordan a friend", DiSabato said.

"If there is any type of abuse of these folks, we want them to get justice, but it's interesting that the timing is what it is in light of things that are going on in Washington", Jordan said.

"I participated with [Jordan] and the other wrestlers in locker-room talk about Strauss".

Jordan's spokesman said he would assist investigators in any way he could.

Dailey said it was "hurtful" Jordan is denying any knowledge of the alleged abuse.
