Re-upping this one. Let’s try to hit 1K.
Rep. Jim Jordan, the powerful Republican congressman from Ohio, is being accused by former wrestlers he coached more than two decades ago at Ohio State University of failing to stop the team doctor from molesting them and other students.
The university announced in April that it was investigating accusations that Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, abused team members when he was the team doctor from the mid-1970s to late 1990s

Jim Jordan (OH-4) is a world class Freedumb Caucus asshole who just tried (and failed) to pants Rod Rosenstein in the House Intelligence Committee meeting late last week.
He has an opponent, Janet Garrett, who has run in 2014 and in 2016. This will be her third try to unseat him. She’s trying to run a “country-before-party” kind of race in a very Republican and gerrymandered district that actually looks like a duck. Lots and lots of miles to cover, and she’s trying to cover them all. Here’s her website.
Mostly I would adore seeing Jordan lose his seat, since he in no way represents me or most of my community– and have I mentioned he’s an asshole? Now Janet has a campaign video focusing on opioids, which should be a very salient issue in this district in the fall.
You know what to do.
