Another OSU Wrestler Says Congressman Knew About Athlete Abuse

Four former Ohio State wrestlers have now come forward saying their assistant coach, now Congressman, did nothing to report or stop sexual abuse of the athletes.

Another former Ohio State University wrestler says Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan knew a team doctor was molesting athletes back when Jordan was an assistant coach for the team. Forty-three-year-old Shawn Dailey says he was too embarrassed to report the incident directly to Jordan when he wrestled for the team, but Jordan regularly took part in conversations about the doctor's behavior.

Dailey says it was well known, and talked about, that if a wrestler went to Dr. Richard Strauss they would end up having to pull their pants down. Strauss, who was team doctor in the mid-90s, commited suicide in 2005. An investigation about the accusations was opened in April.
