Rep. Jim Jordan screams Deep State as more ex-Ohio State wrestlers back up claims that he ignored the sexual abuse of athletes by a team doctor during his stint as assistant wrestling coach at the university in the 1990s.
Former wrestler Mike DiSabato came forward claiming that Jordan ignored a pattern of sexual abuse by Dr. Patrick Strauss against fellow wrestlers at Ohio State University. Jordan claims he would never have ignored such misconduct and is blaming the Deep State for the scandal that is engulfing him.
Former UFC champion Mark Coleman is the fourth ex-wrestler to come forward. He also corroborates DiSabato’s claims. “There’s no way unless he’s [Jordan] got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
Shawn Dailey said he was groped by Dr. Strauss but was too ashamed to tell Jordan directly. He participated in multiple conversations with Jordan and his teammates during which the alleged conduct was discussed.
There are now calls for Jordan’s resignation on social media. Jordan is the same dude who is trying to run interference for Donald Trump by seeking to derail the Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Former Sen. Al Franken was forced to resign for a lot less, so naturally, Rep. Jordan should be held to the same standard. The Republican Party embraced accused child molester Roy Moore, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many are defending Jordan. The GOP ringleader, Donald Trump, is now attacking the wrestlers as liars.
Reaction on Twitter:
Former UFC Champion Mark Coleman says Jim Jordan definitely knew about the sexual abuse at Ohio State. That's 5 people now. Get this lying piece of shit out of our Congress.

A 5th male wrestler is now accusing GOP scumbag and pervert @Jim_Jordan of having knowledge of their team doctor sexually abusing them and doing nothing about it. He needs to resign like yesterday.

If you covered Hillary's emails, Benghazi, Al Franken and birtherism, but you're not talking about Jim Jordan covering up sexual abuse at Ohio State, then you are not a real journalist.
