Yet another accuser has stepped forward to say Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is lying when he claims to have known nothing about sexual abuse on the Ohio State wrestling team when he coached, the Washington Post reports.


David Range wrestled for Ohio State in the late 1980s, when Jordan was an assistant coach.

He now says Jordan had to have known about misconduct by the late Richard Strauss, who was a doctor on the team.

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

Range said he never made a formal complaint but that everyone discussed the subject.

“We talked about it all the time in the locker room," he told the paper. “Everybody joked about it and talked about it all the time.”

Jordan appeared on Fox News Channel on Friday night to answer questions for host Bret Baier and continued to deny knowing anything about it while lashing out at several of the accusers, suggesting that they were con-men involved in fraud schemes and that this matter was political.
