    The comments from your "witnesses" I have read are along the lines of "He should have known"..."He had to know".

    Since when is mind reading evidence?

    Hardly a position of authority.

    From the OP:



    George Pardos, who left the Marine Corps to wrestle at Ohio State from 1988 to 1993, said the same. There were always rumors about the doctor who showered with the team, Pardos told me, “but [a] lot of the stories were just running jokes.” Older than most of the other wrestlers because of his time enlisted, Pardos said he served as “an unofficial team captain” and can’t recall hearing a single allegation of abuse.

    And while Pardos noted that Jordan “literally carried me” to get medical treatment after an injury and checked another teammate into rehab for drug abuse, the two weren’t exactly best friends. “Let me say this,” he said after a pause during a long phone interview, “me and Jimmy didn’t really get along. He didn’t really like me a lot.”

    But while the two “butted heads” over religion and politics, Pardos insisted Jordan was incapable of ignoring abuse. If the assistant coach knew Strauss was abusing students, Pardos tells me, “knowing Jimmy I think he would’ve ripped of his arm and beat him with it.”

    And once again the righties of the forum rush to the defense of a paedophile.

    You think they would have learned after Roy Diddle Moore.

    Let's not listen to this or any other propaganda. Let's instead see how the investigation turns out. It's not even complete, and yet your and your source are drawing conclusions. I guess when it harms your opponents, there's no conspiracy theory worth ignoring.
    Amen.

    There’s now a ninth accuser for Rep. Jim Jordan. He says he told Jordan about a specific case of the now-deceased team doctor fondling his testicles. Jordan snickered and took no action. “I remember coming up and saying, ‘Strauss held my balls longer than normal.’ He just snickered.”
    And the hits keep coming...…and you stay in denial....

    A conspiracy involving seven people is tough to keep together.
    Jordan is also up for majority leader

    But I guess in your right wing world, that does not count.
    Of course it does not count. Why should it? It's just politics.

    You never support anyone that is not a democrat
