Fourth Ohio State wrestler claims Jordan knew about sexual abuse

Former Ohio State wrestler Mike DiSabato found it mildly ridiculous that Rep. Jim Jordan would think he was bullying him.

Jordan - a conservative House Freedom Caucus cofounder from Champaign County whose name has been mentioned as a possible successor to House Speaker Paul Ryan - met with reporters after a Fourth of July appearance in Fremont to deny the claims first reported by NBC.

"The investigative team is continuing its efforts to schedule an interview with Rep. Jordan, as well as other individuals with potential knowledge relating to the allegations", Trafford said.

Jordan's spokesman says in a statement the congressman never saw or heard about any abuse or had any abuse reported when he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State. Jordan was Yetts' weight-class coach at the time, and the two spoke frequently about Strauss, he said.

News on Tuesday reported on claims from three former wrestlers who say the late Dr. Richard Strauss molested players during his tenure with the team from the mid-'70s to late '90s-and that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the team's assistant wrestling coach for the 1986 to 1994 period, knew.

Both former students who were named in the NBC story have had run-ins with the law or the university.

Jordan said he and DiSabato were previously friends.

DiSabato, 50, said he was moved to tell Ohio State of Strauss' actions after hearing accounts previous year of gymnasts sexually abused by sports doctor Larry Nassar.

Jordan's spokesman said he would assist investigators in any way he could.

Doug Andres, a spokesman for Ryan, said in a statement Tuesday that "these are serious allegations and issues".

Dr. Strauss's inappropriate touching of athletes was open knowledge, he said, and he remembered talking about it with Mr. Jordan on road trips, in the sauna and after practices. "The speaker will await the findings of that inquiry".

Jordan denied being aware of the abuse claims several months ago (the university said in April it was investigating) and repeated that denial Tuesday. In a video shared with NBC, former head wrestling coach Russ Hellickson said he confronted Strauss and told school officials.

Dailey told NBC that Strauss groped him repeatedly, but said he did not report the conduct because he was ashamed. He recalled an incident where Strauss - whose locker was next to Jordan's - had dressed after a shower to leave the building, but then disrobed and went back in for another one after noticing a favorite athlete entering the shower room.

Strauss is alleged to have abused male athletes participating in 14 sports, as well as patients at the student health center, where he was a part-time physician between 1994 and 1996.

"What happened drove me out of the sport", Dailey told NBC.
