Rep. Jim Jordan Says He ‘Never Was Told’ About Ohio State Abuse

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Friday denied any knowledge of widespread sexual abuse of members of Ohio State’s wrestling team by team Dr. Richard Strauss. Strauss, now deceased, is accused of assaulting or raping hundreds, if not thousands, of student athletes, and five wrestlers have publicly said that Jordan must have been aware of his abuses. "I know they know the truth… I know they know what they’re saying is not accurate,” Jordan told Fox News’ Bret Baier Friday evening. “I never saw, never heard of, never was told about any type of abuse. If I had been, I would have dealt with it.” Later he added that “(c)onversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse.”
