Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Sex Abuse Scandal At Jim Jordan's Old Team Will 'Get Worse' For Him, Warns Ex-Wrestler”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A onetime captain on Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) former Ohio State University wrestling team warned Saturday that it’s “going to get worse” for the powerful congressman regarding the sex abuse scandal involving his old team.

Dozens of athletes accused the late university doctor Richard Strauss of sexual abuse, a number of them while Jordan was the assistant coach from 1987 to 1995. At least three athletes and a referee have said they discussed the abuse directly with Jordan, but that he took no action to stop it. The staunch Donald Trump supporter has denied he was told of any abuse or knew of it.

Former wrestler Adam DiSabato told MSNBC’s Joy Reid that Jordan called him repeatedly to plead with him to contradict DiSabato’s own brother’s account in 2018 that he told Jordan of sexual abuse. DiSabato insisted Jordan was fully aware that Strauss was molesting athletes during physicals.

The sexual abuse was “blatant knowledge throughout our wrestling team,” he told Reid. There are “others that are going to come out on my behalf” to reveal information, and it’s “just going to get worse,” he warned.

For Jordan to “keep denying” he knew what was going on is “just digging himself a bigger hole,” he added.
