Rep. Jordan begged him to deny OSU abuse claims

WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, a former captain of the Ohio State wrestling team told state lawmakers in a public hearing that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, pleaded with him in 2018 to deny allegations sexual abuse of male wrestlers by a team doctor was well-known within the program but was ignored.

“Jim Jordan called me crying, groveling, begging me to go against my brother, begging me, crying for a half-hour. That’s the kind of cover-up that’s going on there,” Adam DiSabato told members of the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee about a conversation the congressman and him had on July 24, 2018.

Adam DiSabato, who was a member of the school’s wrestling program in the late ’80s to early ’90s, is the brother of fellow OSU wrestling alumni Michael DiSabato, who helped spur the investigation into the late Dr. Richard Strauss.

Strauss died by suicide in 2005. He served in various roles in his 20 years at Ohio State, including more than a decade as a team doctor. He has been accused of sexually assaulting hundreds of athletes at the school.
