Officials Ignored 'Clear Evidence' of Abuse by Ohio State Doctor

Snip-"A working group, largely made up of state and local law enforcement officials, said that “for reasons that simply cannot be determined,” the State Medical Board of Ohio’s inquiry into Dr. Richard H. Strauss’s conduct essentially went dormant, even though it had, in 1996, yielded evidence of wrongdoing. It was ultimately closed years later without any penalties.

The conclusion came in a report that said “systemic failures” at Ohio State and the medical board had for years “prevented any tangible administrative or criminal consequences” against Strauss. It prompted Gov. Mike DeWine to urge regulators to review a quarter-century’s worth of sexual abuse allegations against health care providers that had ended “without action.”


Snip-" The report released Friday found that the passive response to the allegations against Strauss spread beyond the university’s campus in Columbus and into the offices of the board charged with disciplining doctors.

A medical board investigator “recognized the potential severity and reach of Strauss’ improper conduct” during a different investigation in July 1996, and by December of that year, a report said that evidence showed “that Dr. Strauss has been performing inappropriate genital exams on male students for years.”

2. More than 1,500 cases to be reviewed...

You bet it will be ugly, messy, and long!

Obviously someone was paid off big time to make this mess go away.

Will de Wine and his administration have the guts to dig deep enough to get to the truth? And appropriately punish anyone who kept silent?

I’ll bet Jim Jordan is getting pretty nervous .... good ....
