Ohio State says 100 ex-students have reported sex misconduct by doctor

The now-dead physician and team doctor, Richard Strauss, is the focus of an investigation into allegations involving male athletes from 14 sports and other students throughout Strauss' two decades there.

Jordan was recently interviewed by lawyers who are looking into allegations of rampant, well-known sexual abuse by the wrestling team's doctor.

The Ohio congressman is facing allegations that he turned a blind eye to Ohio State University wrestlers' allegations of sexual abuse.

The university launched an investigation into the sexual misconduct and harassment claims against Strauss in April, after a former wrestler said he had been abused as a student.

Jordan has repeatedly denied any knowledge of inappropriate behavior during his time as assistant wrestling coach at OSU between 1987 and 1995. He says Strauss also peformed a genital exam and pressed himself into Snyder-Hill, at which point the patient realized the doctor had an erection.

"The way it seemed to me, it was sequenced and choreographed, and the left, and everything they've done, I guess you'd have to look at that", Jordan said Thursday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

The suit, filed Monday in federal district court in Columbus, accuses Ohio State of Title IX and civil rights violations when it failed to prevent repeated sexual assaults, abuse and molestation by Strauss. "I'm glad that Jim is committed to working with the investigators to see that the full truth comes out and justice is served".

Jordan had said he would cooperate with investigators and that victims deserve justice if abuse occurred.

Last week, the Freedom Caucus voted to officially back him amid the allegations, which signaled a solid bloc of support for Jordan from his most ardent followers in the Republican conference.

"Mulvin said Strauss physically examined his genitals for approximately 20 minutes, before finally asking him, "'does this thing work?' And I said 'yeah it works for my girlfriend'".

Fury declined to provide details about the interview, including whether Jordan was accompanied by an attorney during the session.
