Rep. Gym Jordan Denies Referee’s “Ridiculous” Claim

The Lima News reports:

“I’ve stood up against the Speaker of the House from own party in my own state. I’ve stood up against the IRS, stood up against the FBI, stood up against Adam Schiff, fought the Justice Department when the whole Trump-Russia thing — what they had done. The idea I’m not going to defend our athletes when I think they’re being harmed is ridiculous,” Jordan said Monday during a visit to Lima.

“This is just, this is someone making a false statement,” he added. According to the lawsuit filed in Columbus this past Thursday, the referee, who is unnamed in the lawsuit, alleges Strauss had masturbated in front of him in the shower locker room. After telling Jordan about the incident, both Jordan and wrestling head coach Russ Hellickson allegedly responded with “Yeah, that’s Strauss,” the suit says.
