A respected Ohio referee says disgraced Dr . Richard Strauss performed a sex act in a shower at Ohio State after Jim Jordan , R- Ohio , speaks at a news conference in Washington on Oct. The lawsuit , filed in federal court in Ohio , implies that Jordan ' s response to the incident, which the referee said

But Jordan, who at the time was an assistant Ohio State wrestling coach - and then OSU head coach Russ Hellickson who was also told about the incident - just shrugged off the shocking claim about Dr. Richard Strauss, the suit says.

Jordan and Hellickson responded "Yeah, that's Strauss," according to the lawsuit filed Thursday in federal court in Columbus, Ohio.

The allegation that Jordan knew of Strauss' misdeeds comes on the heels of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's announcement on Friday that the powerful congressman has been assigned to the House Intelligence Committee, which is conducting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

The referee, identified in court papers as "John Doe 42" is the second person who says in legal filings that he told Jordan about being sexually approached or molested by Strauss, who since has died.

A new class action lawsuit on behalf of former athletes has named the Ohio congressman for failing In the two weeks since former Ohio State wrestlers began to make public allegations about being As I wrote here on Monday, the former wrestlers , who say Jordan knew they were being abused and

Multiple former wrestlers who were coached by Jordan during their time at Ohio State University have previously accused him of turning a blind eye to the abuse.

Jordan's spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Jordan has repeatedly denied knowing of the alleged abuse by Strauss.

"It's not true," the congressman told Politico in July last year.

"I never knew about any type of abuse. If I did, I would have done something about it. And look, if there are people who are abused, then that's terrible and we want justice to happen."

Hellickson, 71, the other coach who Doe accused of knowing about the abuse, did not comment on the allegations.

An investigation found that Strauss, who was the athletic team doctor at Ohio State University from 1978 to 1998, had sexually abused at least 177 male students over decades, with the earliest known abuse dating back to 1979. The university said he committed at least 1,429 sexual assaults and 47 rapes while employed by the school, according to the university's 2019 crime report.

Alphabet's board is investigating how sexual misconduct claims were handled

  Alphabet's board is investigating how sexual misconduct claims were handled Today CNBC reports that Alphabet, the parent company of Google that was formed in 2015, is investigating how execs investigated sexual misconduct. Years of eyebrow-raising stories about behavior by top officials at Google preceded a report last year by the New York Times that highlighted a $90 million payment to Android co-founder Andy Rubin after a misconduct probe, another payment to former search head Amit Singhal and also allegations against then-X research division director Rich DeVaul, who resigned shortly after.

Referee Says He Told Rep . Jim Jordan About Abuse by OSU Doc. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was notified of sexual abuse by Ohio State University doctor Richard Strauss but He is the second person to dispute Jordan ' s assertion that he was never aware of misconduct by Strauss, who is

According to the latest lawsuit, John Doe 42 was with Strauss in an otherwise empty school locker room after a wrestling match that he refereed in 1994 or 1995.

John Doe 42 decided to shower at the far end, and Strauss chose the shower closest to him, despite having multiple open showers to choose from. Doe said he noticed Strauss' body was touching his and found Strauss masturbating and staring at him, according to the court filing.

After verbally confronting Strauss, Doe exited the shower, and told Jordan and Hellickson about what had happened, saying that Strauss was "whacking off in the shower."

Jordan and Hellickson replied, "Yeah, that's Strauss."

A second referee known as John Doe 30 said in the same court filing that he was also sexually abused by Strauss in 1990 or 1991, after he asked an unidentified wrestling coach if he could see a trainer to have his back wrapped to prevent injury before a wrestling match he was scheduled to referee.

"John Doe 30 was disturbed by Dr. Strauss's behavior and called OSU's Athletic Department to report the incident a few days later. He was connected to an OSU Athletics Department employee," the suit says.

"John Doe 30 told that person that he was fondled while getting an ACE bandage wrapped during the wrestling meet. He also gave the OSU employee his name and phone number. The employee said, 'OK, we'll take care of it,' according to the suit. "John Doe 30 was never contacted by anyone at OSU regarding his report."

Jordan was employed as an assistant coach for the wrestling team between 1986 and 1994, which overlaps with the time frame of this incident.

Resources to help survivors of sexual assault include the National Sex Assault Hotline (800-656-4673), and The Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN) online hotline.
