Referee says he told Rep. Jim Jordan that Ohio State doctor performed sex act in shower

Source: NBC

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.

“Yeah, that’s Strauss,” 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.

John Doe 42 is the second person to say he told Jordan directly about either being approached or molested by Strauss, who was found by independent investigators to have sexually abused 177 male students over two decades.

Jordan, a powerful Republican congressman and a top defender of President Donald Trump in the ongoing impeachment inquiry, has repeatedly denied knowing anything about what Strauss did to the wrestlers he helped coach from 1986 to 1994. He has said the allegations against him were politically motivated.

6. Yes, he is.

That is why he fits into the gop cabal so easily. The entire group needs to be exposed.

7. Source NBC

So will reporters ask Jordan about this or give him a pass?

Since the source was NBC will this be discussed today on MSNBC? I usually don't watch morning news and only tune in at 4PM for Nicolle.

Maybe Jordan should be asked, since he covered up for the good doctor did that give him practice in covering up for Trump?

9. Who gives a ----- if it's politically motivated or not?

He’s a repulsive SOB who deserves all that he gets. To attempt to deflect merely confirms being the coward that he really is.

11. Despicable then, despicable now. Then he enabled a sexual predator...

Now he does the same. His character is as empty as the jacket he never wears.

15. Gym Jordan is looking a little ill, lately. I think he is being eaten from within...

He is rather pale, and seems to be losing hair...

His response of “Yeah, that’s Strauss” implies that he is aware of it happening before, has possibly even seen it himself...

I understand that there are communal showers where this may happen, and no one cares. It may even be expected. That is a totally different scenario. You KNOW what you are getting when you go there.

But a University sports locker room shower, used by students playing team sports for an educational institution, is NOT one of them.

The fact that Gym is aware of it, and does nothing about it... That is SO typical of republican family values.
