STRAUSS HEARING


A FOURTH HEARING WAS HELD TUESDAY ON A BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE BY FORMER OHIO STATE DR. RICHARD STRAUSS TO SUE THE UNIVERSITY. BUT, REP. TAVIA GALONSKI MADE A MOTION TO SUBPOENA CONGRESSMAN JIM JORDAN. JORDAN WAS A WRESTLING COACH AT THE TIME STRAUSS IS ACCUSED OF ABUSING MANY OF THE ATHLETES. SOME FORMER ATHLETES ALLEGE HE KNEW ABOUT THE SUSPICIONS REGARDING DOCTOR STRAUSS AND DID NOTHING TO STOP HIM. JORDAN HAS PUBLICLY SAID HE WAS NEVER AWARE OF ANY ABUSE AND THE UNIVERSITY INVESTIGATION DID NOT NAME HIM.

THE COMMITTEE CHAIR DENIED BOTH OF THOSE MOTIONS, HOWEVER, SAYING THEY WERE OUT OF ORDER.
