Jim Jordan facing new accusation that he ignored warnings of sexual abuse at Ohio State


In a lawsuit filed Thursday, a college wrestling referee says he told Congressman Jim Jordan - then Ohio State’s assistant wrestling coach - that the team’s physician Richard Straus performed a sex act in front of him in the shower. Jordan has previously denied any knowledge of abuse and is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Jordan has called the accusations politically-motivated.
