    Heh-heh... Fun to watch the defense.
    Jordan said on Fox there was always locker room talk. But now the wrestlers are coming out with descriptions of certain incidents. Like the guy was dressed and leaving until one of his favorites came in, went back in and took another shower. Jordan and the wrestler witnessed that.

    And this was taking place over all sports, not just one.

    Well, there's this:
    A seventh former Ohio State University wrestler came forward Saturday with claims that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) knew about alleged sexual abuse taking place on the wrestling team while he was an assistant coach.

    David Range told The Washington Post that Jordan must have known about the alleged sexual abuse by athletic doctor Richard Strauss because it happened regularly and was often discussed.

    “Jordan definitely knew that these things were happening — yes, most definitely,” Range told the newspaper. “It was there. He knew about it because it was an everyday occurrence.”

    The former wrestler said he did not talk about the alleged abuse with Jordan directly and was unaware of any formal reports made about it. He said the lawmaker was in the locker room during conversations about the topic.

    The Penn State situation involved younger boys, not the alleged college students here, so more fail.

    Jordan was mandated to report the "locker talk" he admitted hearing. He didn't. Is he incompetent or a liar?

    Jordan rightly trashed Rosenstein and all of a sudden this from many years ago pops up. Yeah, it is the swamp at work so obvious to any but regressives.

    It's good to hear more from people that actually lived it. This guy didn't like Jordon, but stood up for him and his character. That says a lot.

    I was thinking there is something to the stories, but now I am back on the fence.

    The timing of this all, the inclusion of the Leftwing political law firm, it is fishy.
