Jim Jordan: Ruh Roh

Jim Jordan is a congressman from Ohio. He represents the most backwater inbred collection of racist, homophobic asshats imaginable.

Jim Jordan is a tea party darling who holds all the usual disgusting positions. He also, of course, is running interference for Daddy on the reg.

He's also a former wresting coach. At least 5 people say he had direct knowledge of another coach raping kids, and did absolutely nothing.

This is the likely next speaker of the house! He's already claiming everyone is lying and formulating a conspiracy theory about "suspicious timing."

Ladies and gentlemen, the GOP. Not a single one of them has spoken out against this dude.

Re: Jim Jordan: Ruh Roh

Child rape is now one of the major planks of republican orthodoxy. Its cutting taxes, whining about stuff, trying to annoy liberals and child torture/rape. They are the 4 pillars of republicanism. Obviously racism is the foundation that these 4 pillars stand on.

Penn State cultists still defend Paterno. It should be no surprise that this doesn't matter.

Yeah, mostly this. With Paterno, the cult latched on to the fact that he told someone higher up about it. I wonder what straw Jordan apologists are going to grasp.

I assume it's a major law firm, top 10-40, with like 10 offices and 1k+ lawyers, none of whom overlap on the projects. Listening to music and drinking a beer, so not going to find out which one. This is like saying Ernst & Young Toledo office is conflicted in an audit because the Phoenix office once auited a compeitor.

Good thing Al Franken's resignation preserved norms in this country. Otherwise we'd have the presumptive republican speaker all over television saying that reports of sexual abuse were just locker room talk

Canít report sexual abuse if you hear about it in the locker room. Laws donít apply to locker room talk, itís like The Purge in there.

Re: Jim Jordan: Ruh Roh

Rep. Jim Jordan faces new accusation that he must have known about alleged sexual abuse at Ohio State
A seventh former Ohio State University wrestler said Saturday that he believes Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) knew about inappropriate behavior that allegedly took place in the school’s athletic department three decades ago, as two more former team members came to Jordan’s defense.

I guess this is a step in the right direction, two speakers ago the GOP had an actual child molester in charge.

Even the Russians have some standards when it comes to children?

It doesn't really surprise me that his former assistants would come to his defense. Wrestling at that level is a pretty small community.

Not that this absolves Jim Jordan, but I think the bolded is wrong. I finally got around to reading the story. USA Today and CBS say it was a team doctor groping athletes and watching them in the showers and locker room.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/richard...men-for-years/
Quote:
They described how Strauss fondled them during medical exams and ogled naked young men, sometimes showering among athletes multiple times a day for no apparent reason or perching himself on a stool to stare. Some said Strauss groped them barehanded during physicals, had them drop their pants even while examining them for a cough or heartburn, and badgered students to go home with him.
...
Former wrestling team captain Dave Mulvin said he raised concerns in the late 1970s, when Strauss fondled him during an exam that Mulvin abruptly ended, telling the doctor his behavior was "weird."
...
Nick Nutter, an All-American wrestler in the 1990s, said he constantly did a calculation before deciding whether to see Strauss: "Is this injury bad enough that I'm going to get molested for it?"
...
[DiSabato] said Strauss' behavior was an open secret among wrestlers, who would snicker when a new teammate headed into his first exam with Strauss.
Apparently an administrator and another doctor ignored the complaints:
Quote:
Mulvin said he went to the student health center to finish the exam and complained about Strauss to another doctor, who shrugged it off.
...
Yetts said he complained about Strauss to his coach after being groped during three exams, and the coach, Russ Hellickson, told the doctor to stop such behavior.

Other wrestlers said Hellickson, who coached at Ohio State for two decades starting in 1986, expressed concerns to a Larkins Hall administrator
Jim Jordan was an assistant coach. I suppose it's possible that an asst coach didn't know, because the athletes might only complain to the head coach. But given the WaPo article ScreaminAsian posted, he almost definitely knew.
Quote:
[Former wrestler David Range:] "...He knew about it because it was an everyday occurrence."
...
“We talked about it all the time in the locker room” while Jordan was there, he said. “Everybody joked about it and talked about it all the time.”
This isn't on the same level as JoePa's inaction toward Sandusky, but there's no defense for it and it ought to cost Jordan his political career.

Re: Jim Jordan: Ruh Roh

A lawyer I follow tweeted that Jordan would have had a legal responsibility to report such incidents. He quoted the statute, but IANAL and I don't know if it was actually law at the time this stuff happened. This hasn't been mentioned in articles I've seen. Obviously he also had a moral responsibility.
