    Second man accuses Rep. Jim Jordan of ignoring OSU abuse

    A professional referee says in a lawsuit filed Thursday that disgraced doctor Richard Strauss masturbated in front of him in a shower after a wrestling match at Ohio State University, and he reported the encounter directly to Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who was then the assistant coach.

    ďYeah, thatís Strauss,Ē Jordan and then-head coach Russ Hellickson replied, according to the lawsuit, when the referee, identified in court papers as John Doe 42, told them about the incident. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Ohio, implies that Jordan's response to the incident, which the referee said happened in 1994, was essentially a shrug.

    What is it with former wrestling coaches who became Congressmen from the midwest? Sex abuse seems like part of process.

    Molestation is listed as a job skill.

    If that is the case, that is disgraceful and he should not have ignored the abuse.

    However, I must ask, what power did Jordan have in this matter? Did the students who confided in him expect him to report it and he then did nothing? Or did they simply tell him this, getting it off their chest, but without expectation that anything be done to save them from further humiliation?

    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    It is more of a cultural issue.

    You do not want to necessarily ruin the child's life by disclosing this information publicly. Imagine the shame and stigma that the child must live with for the rest of his life.

    Does it ever seem odd to anyone that these revelations only come out when someone democrats hate kick up some dust? They are always decades old and really only based on one persons say so with no other witness that can confirm the specific claims.

    It doesn't really matter if the Democrats pushed or even threatened the referee to testify. It is true. That's the problem.
