FORMER OHIO STATE WRESTLER RECANTS CLAIM THAT JIM JORDAN KNEW OF SEXUAL ABUSE

A former Ohio State University wrestler is recanting his claims that Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan knew of sexual abuse allegations against a university physician when he coached wrestling at the school over 20 years ago.

“At no time did I ever say or have any direct knowledge that Jim Jordan knew of Dr. Richard Strauss’s inappropriate behavior,” Mark Coleman, a former MMA fighter who wrestled at Ohio State when Jordan coached there, said in a statement.

“I have nothing but respect for Jim Jordan as I have known him for more than 30 years and know him to be of impeccable character.”

Coleman is the first former OSU wrestler to recant his claims that Jordan knew about sexual abuse at the hands of Dr. Richard Strauss, an OSU physician accused of molesting dozens of student-athletes.


Jordan, who was an assistant coach at OSU from 1986 to 1994, was first linked to the allegations against Strauss in an NBC News article published July 3. A former wrestler named Mike DiSabato led the push to accuse Jordan of turning a blind eye to Strauss’s behavior.

Jordan, who is mounting a bid for Speaker of the House, has vehemently denied knowing about Strauss’s actions. He has said that he would have taken action had he known about them. OSU is conducting an investigation into Strauss, who committed suicide in 2005.

Coleman, DiSabato and six other former wrestlers said Jordan must have known about the allegations because they were a topic of frequent conversation in the OSU wrestling program.

2. Oh dear. Will be interesting to see how many more now recant.

As many liberals know all too well....storytelling is fun until the law starts looking for the truth.

5. Isn't that how it has been working for the last two years?

Run with a crazy bold faced lie. Get the rubes riled up and believing it as true. Once it is proven false, put the recant or correction on the back-page but the damage is already done.

Death by fabricated innuendo. Soviet Communists are smiling in their approval.

6. Yep, that is what happens when you raise generations to not be held accountable...

"Death by fabricated innuendo. Soviet Communists are smiling in their approval."

...for their actions & decisions. Start holding people responsible for what they've done, most societal problems will be resolved..........

7. I couldn't agree more.

It will take a social revolution and at least a generation of conservative ideals as the majority in the marketplace of ideas for this to be undone though I fear.
