Jim Jordan's name comes up during Statehouse testimony on OSU abuse victims bill

Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer

"...Adam DiSabato, a former captain of the OSU wrestling team during the late 80s and early 90s, told members of the House Civil Justice Committee that Jordan and other team officials knew about open-shower team facilities that facilitated sexual harassment and abuse of team wrestlers..."

“Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling… begging me to go against my brother…That’s the kind of cover-up that’s going on there,” he said.

“Are you guys going to do what you’re voted to do?” he told lawmakers later. “That’s the only reason I’m here.”...

"He also said Jordan called him repeatedly in July 2018, after media outlets quoted his brother, Michael DiSabato, saying Strauss’ abuse was common knowledge to those surrounding the wrestling program, including Jordan.

“Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling… begging me to go against my brother…That’s the kind of cover-up that’s going on there,” he said."

Jordan is under the protection of fat Donnie short fingers now.

There is no law in the United States of America:


The President is corrupt

The Attorney General is corrupt

The Senate republicans are corrupt

The Supreme Court is corrupt

He has short fingers.

I guess that is why people call him tiny hands or small hands.

I like short fingered better.

I don't know if I heard it anywhere or not.

To be on the safe side I won't lay claim to it.

I've heard so many insults I can't keep them all straight.

Ohio State fan dislike the dishonor he has brought that school.

Jacket off Jordan needs to pay for what he has done to the fans.

this pestilence won't incur the wrath of voters because he represents a gerrymandered district on steroids (perfect for Gymmie Jordan). The CONS did a masterful job in carving up Ohio to maintain their strangle hold on power for perpetuity and eliminate any accountability to the citizens that identify as Democrats. I'm "represented" by Bobby Gibbs who's just as hideous as Jordan, but doesn't have the mental capacity to be as publicly bombastic.

Ashamed to say I'd read the term but never looked it up...

Gerrymandering is the practice of setting boundaries of electoral districts to favor specific political interests within legislative bodies, often resulting in districts with convoluted, winding boundaries rather than compact areas.


Believe I have read articles of judges throwing out newly developed districts that they for one reason or another, considered illegal?

The right wingers are always laying plans, always trying to anticipate trends and voter responses...The libs need to make such plans..visionary stuff that will keep the 30%ers self flagellation attitudes in check...

(before I checked the gerrymandering). Red (farmer) Ohio sucks.
My farmer friends harass me for paying their taxes. LOL.

It's all about money and that is why Sanders and Warren and
Healthcare are in a quandary. Wall Street Hilary and uncle Joe
avoid Medicare for all.

I will vote Democrat.

I did not think so, And if there is a Wall Street Hilary would you tell
me some more about her?

Maybe it's finally getting some national attention. I suppose that's what happens when a former captain of the OSU wrestling team testifies before an Ohio state legislative committee that Jordan knew and did nothing. OSU is probably followed by every Ohian making what happens there statewide news.
