2nd Man Accuses Rep. Jim Jordan of Ignoring Ohio State Misconduct Allegations

A second person has come forward accusing Republican representative Jim Jordan of covering up sexual misconduct at Ohio State University.

That’s according to a Washington Post report.

In a lawsuit filed Thursday, a wrestling referee said he reported sexual misconduct involving the alleged actions of former OSU medical doctor Richard Strauss to Jordan while he was a wrestling coach, which was from 1987 to 1995.

Strauss died by suicide in 2005.

According to the post, Thursday’s filing is the 13th lawsuit against the school.

The post says it’s at least the second time someone suing the school has said they reported Strauss’ conduct directly to Jordan.

According to the post, Jordan has not been named as a defendant in any of the lawsuits.

He has repeatedly denied any knowledge of inappropriate behavior during his time as an assistant wrestling coach.

More than 40 men have come forward saying they were abused by Strauss.
