Former OSU Wrestler Says Jordan Knew Of Abuse, Did Nothing

(ONN) – Another former member of the Ohio State wrestling team is accusing former assistant coach and current congressman Jim Jordan of standing silent as a team doctor molested hundreds of athletes.

Adam DiSabato, who wrestled for the Buckeyes between 1988 and 1993, testified before the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee during a hearing on a bill that would allow a victim to sue a university if a university doctor abused them.

DiSabato told state lawmakers he told both Jordan and head coach Russ Hellickson of Dr. Richard Strauss’ sexual abuse of members of the team, but the pair “did nothing.”

The university has confirmed that Strauss committed nearly 1,500 acts of fondling and more than 40 rapes between the late 1970s and early 1990s.
