Clarence Thomas' wife defends Jim Jordan in college sex abuse case

Clarence Thomas' wife defends Jim Jordan in college sex abuse case

Other wrestlers said Hellickson, who coached at Ohio State for two decades starting in 1986, expressed concerns to a Larkins Hall administrator about voyeurism at the recreation and training center, where they said Strauss and other older male faculty members and university employees were known to go to leer at athletes in the locker rooms, showers and sauna.

"Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I've met since I've been in Washington and I believe him 100 percent", Trump said Thursday.

"What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong", former assistant coaches Rex Holman, Dave Ruckman, Ken Chertow, Myron Kharchilava and Kenny Ramsey Jr. said in a joint statement.

Jordan was an assistant coach on the wrestling team from the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s - long before he entered Congress. Strauss died in 2005.

"It was there. He knew about it because it was an everyday occurrence", Range told the Post. "I have nothing but respect for this man, but he knew as far as I'm concerned".

"I was concerned that we not have harassment on either side - that the wrestlers be left alone and feel secure and not harassed or observed or approached", Geiger told The Post, recalling his desire to protect wrestlers who were "feeling uncomfortable". And I can't wait to see what these accusations do to Jim Jordan's re-election bid this November.

The complaint letter cites news reports that students claimed to have spoken to Jordan about the alleged sex abuse at the time.

In response, Jordan told Fox News: "I never saw, never heard of, never was told about any type of abuse". Geiger says he doesn't remember Strauss well. The allegations surrounding him have prompted an investigation by Ohio State University, which has hired a law firm, Perkins Coie, to look into the claims made by former male athletes.

But like the man Jordan doggedly supports, President Donald Trump, the Ohio Republican has the kind of stalwart supporters who do not lose faith easily, and they are already defending the conservative powerhouse, saying he is the victim of the same "deep state" conspirators.

.

"Conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse, or reported abuse to us", Jordan claimed. Jordan, a co-founder of the conservative group, is among the high-profile House Republicans considering a run to replace Speaker Paul Ryan when he retires at the end of his term.

But Alf said that Jordan likely did not know what was going on. But as time passed, more people have stepped forward.

Jordan also suggested the allegations were the result of DiSabato's "vendetta" against Ohio State, and floated a connection to his heated exchange with deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last month.

Ryan hasn't called on Jordan to resign or step aside, saying instead that he is awaiting an investigation from the Ohio State University before he comments on Jordan's future.

The source said Jordan's relationships within the House Freedom Caucus are strong, with his colleagues seeing him as a "good man who was probably just in a bad situation". It's unclear whether Coleman reported the abuse to Ohio State.
