HeadlineFeb 14, 2020

Former Ohio State wrestler Adam DiSabato accused Republican Ohio Congressmember Jim Jordan of begging him not to corroborate the widespread sexual abuse perpetrated by university doctor Richard Strauss, after DiSabato’s brother Mike exposed the abuse. This is Adam DiSabato testifying Wednesday in a public hearing in the Ohio state Legislature.

Adam DiSabato: “Jim Jordan called me, crying — crying — groveling, on the Fourth of July, begging me to go against my brother — begging me, crying for a half-hour. That’s the kind of cover-ups that’s going on there.”
