    Former Ohio State Wrestler Recants Claim That Jim Jordan Knew Of Sexual Abuse

    A former Ohio State University wrestler is recanting his claims that Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan knew of sexual abuse allegations against a university physician when he coached wrestling at the school over 20 years ago.

    “At no time did I ever say or have any direct knowledge that Jim Jordan knew of Dr. Richard Strauss’s inappropriate behavior,” Mark Coleman, a former MMA fighter who wrestled at Ohio State when Jordan coached there, said in a statement.


    “I have nothing but respect for Jim Jordan as I have known him for more than 30 years and know him to be of impeccable character.”


    Coleman is the first former OSU wrestler to recant his claims that Jordan knew about sexual abuse at the hands of Dr. Richard Strauss, an OSU physician accused of molesting dozens of student-athletes.

    Jordan, who was an assistant coach at OSU from 1986 to 1994, was first linked to the allegations against Strauss in an NBC News article published July 3. A former wrestler named Mike DiSabato led the push to accuse Jordan of turning a blind eye to Strauss’s behavior.

    Jordan, who is mounting a bid for Speaker of the House, has vehemently denied knowing about Strauss’s actions. He has said that he would have taken action had he known about them. OSU is conducting an investigation into Strauss, who committed suicide in 2005.


    Coleman, DiSabato and six other former wrestlers said Jordan must have known about the allegations because they were a topic of frequent conversation in the OSU wrestling program. Wrestlers and other athletes claimed Strauss would fondle them during physical examinations. (RELATED: Before Media Campaign, Jim Jordan Accuser Sought Settlement From OSU)


    Coleman told The Wall Street Journal on July 5 that he believed Jordan knew about Strauss’s behavior.


    “There’s no way unless he’s got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State,” he said.


    “I have nothing but respect for this man, I love this man, but he knew as far as I’m concerned.”

    I take nothing the dailycaller posts as fact. It is too often biased nonsense. They are an ideology site and not journalism. We shall see, remember Penn State, people often hide from the truth to stay in the game. But Jordan appears to be one angry person, his biased approach to Trump and our intelligence agencies gives you a sense of the man, game player.

    Have you been paying attention? "...his biased approach to Trump.." really? And Nancy and Maxie and Chuckie have all been fair and unbiased as it pertains to Trump? Really?


    Is this really an Ohio State / *ichigan thingy? You cannot truly believe that Jordan's bias towards Trump is in any way different than their bias against him. C'mon man -- say it with me: Go Buckeyes!!!

    You are wrong. The ideological bent that is at play here is Maoism. The public shamming and mob outrage at a politically unfavored person are hallowed tactics of the Maoist. This because Rep Jordan is outspoken critic of the Maoist left and defender of our great President. That is a cardinal sin right now.

    It follows same pattern every time. Think midcan5 Think!. Time for you move away from the ranks of the Red Guard Mob. Join the side of Liberty and Freedom!

    God Bless America and God Bless Donald Trump.

    Since Coleman stated the following in front of cameras:

    Coleman, DiSabato and six other former wrestlers said Jordan must have known about the allegations because they were a topic of frequent conversation in the OSU wrestling program. Wrestlers and other athletes claimed Strauss would fondle them during physical examinations. (RELATED: Before Media Campaign, Jim Jordan Accuser Sought Settlement From OSU)


    Coleman told The Wall Street Journal on July 5 that he believed Jordan knew about Strauss’s behavior.


    “There’s no way unless he’s got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State,” he said.
    ...it would be safe to assume that he's now enjoying a hefty bribe, err check that just came in the mail.
