    “At no time did I ever say or have any direct knowledge that Jim Jordan knew of Dr. Richard Strauss’s inappropriate behavior,” Mark Coleman, a former MMA fighter who wrestled at Ohio State when Jordan coached there, said in a statement.

    “I have nothing but respect for Jim Jordan as I have known him for more than 30 years and know him to be of impeccable character.”

    Word around the wrestling community is that Coleman took money to throw Jordan under the bus before, though this is not totally proven.

    I mean, several other former wrestlers who say that they revere Jordan nonetheless say that he definitely knew what was going on and that it would be illogical to think otherwise. Right?

    Either way, who cares. It's easy to just presume that current Republican officials are amoral wankers and that their voters will nevertheless not care. If chasing around 15 year olds at shopping malls was so harmless that 70% of white Alabama voters still voted for Roy Moore, I feel pretty confident that this won't affect Jordan's electability.

    I was obvious from the start that this was a hit job in order to stop Jim Jordan (a Freedom Caucus guy) from running for speaker of the house. This barely worked with Roy Moore and they thought they could pull it off again but this time no one brought it.

    Much like Michigan St. and USA Gymnastics, I find it hard to believe that coaches and administrators didn’t know what was going on or hear whispers.

    Sounds like someone's afraid of getting sexually assaulted by Jim Jordan...

    On reading Coleman's actual statements, this is not a recantation.

    Here is the initial statement:

    "There’s no way unless he’s got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State. I have nothing but respect for this man, I love this man, but he knew as far as I’m concerned."

    Here is the new statement:
    “At no time did I ever say or have any direct knowledge that Jim Jordan knew of Dr. Richard Strauss’s inappropriate behavior,”

    These two are consistent, not a recantation.

    The reconciliation of the two statements is easy and should be obvious to non-hacks: He does not personally know what Jim Jordan knew at the time, but, based on what was going on at the time, he believes that Jim Jordan probably knew about it.

    Just like kooore they will pursue this to the ends of he earth or until their opponent wins the election because that is he ultimate punishment and Justice. The only appropriate punishment for rape or abusing kids is a democrat being elected.

    That those four posts were like a mystery wrapped up in an enigma, bundled in a paradox. I’m not sure what to believe.

    Coleman also claims he was a victim. This big fighter allowed another guy to molest him? What is wrong with Coleman?

    Another despicable witch hunt manufactured by exploitation of the #metoo agenda.

    #metoo is hellbent on producing more actual injustice by false trial than justice by saved victims. Crock of shit political agenda masquerading as a civil rights movement.
