Another Former Wrestler Says Jordan Knew of Abuse

Jim Jordan Allegations against me aren't true

Earlier this week, Jordan's office denied knowing about any allegations against Richard Strauss, a team doctor who died in 2005.

Former wrestlers have accused their team doctor from the time of sexual abuse in the mid-'90s.

"Jim knew this - there's no ifs, ands or buts", Michael DiSabato, one of the former wrestlers named in the NBC account, said Tuesday in an interview.

"Conversations in a locker room are a lot different than allegations of abuse or reported abuse", Jordan said Friday, adding that "no one ever reported any abuse to me".

The conservative firebrand, who has repeatedly denied that he ever knew about the alleged abuse, told reporters Wednesday he was asking the Capitol Police to look into what he called "strange" harassing emails his office received from DiSabato as recently as 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday. "Jordan-went-to-bad-address">office said records show that Ohio State's attempts to contact him went to a non-existent email address.

"He was Larry Nassar before Larry Nassar", DiSabato said, referring to the disgraced former sports physician who was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing girls and young women.

The Times gives context to Jordan's position in the House, describing the Freedom Caucus member as being floated as a potential successor to Paul Ryan as speaker.

An investigative team from Seattle-based Perkins Coie (coo-ey) emailed Jordan directly - but inaccurately - in May.

"Mike wrestled with us, was a friend, but something's changed", Jordan told reporters. His staff is now alleging that Jordan's original accuser, Michael DiSabato, sent threatening emails to the congressman before and after the story broke. Both messages - dated May 6 and June 15 and bearing the subject line "WINTER IS HERE" - appear to be directed to Ohio State football legend Archie Griffin and former NCAA official Oliver Luck, the father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

A team doctor who allegedly molested athletes; coaches who reportedly knew but turned a blind eye. He was elected to the U.S. House in 2006 and is seen as a contender to be the next Speaker of the House. He lost a licensing agreement with Ohio State.

"What happened drove me out of the sport", the former athlete, John Dailey, told NBC News.

"He has not been contacted by investigators about the matter but will assist them in any way they ask, because if what is alleged is true, the victims deserve a full investigation and justice", Fury said. "We all did", Dailey told NBC News.

Yetts, an operations manager for a gas drilling company, said Tuesday he has paid his debt for past mistakes.

It's also worth noting that the two ex-wrestlers are represented by the law firm of Perkins, Coie.
