Isn’t it funny that when a good guy on the right decides to push back against his lying leftist accusers instead of just folding, as most spineless Republicans do, the leftists walk back their accusations.
Good for Jim Jordan for sticking to his guns.

Former Ohio State wrestler walks back Jim Jordan accusations
There’s been a hiccup in the ongoing smear campaign against Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and the media is desperately spinning.
A former Ohio State wrestler who previously said Jordan knew of ongoing sexual abuse at Ohio State University by the wrestling team doctor now says he has no direct knowledge of what Jordan knew and is distancing himself from Jordan’s primary accuser, Michael DiSabato.
Mark Coleman released a press statement through a public relations firm hired by Jordan, clarifying comments attributed to him that were “not accurate or were misconstrued by media outlets.”
“At no time did I ever say or have any direct knowledge that Jim Jordan knew of Dr. Richard Strauss’s inappropriate behavior,” said Coleman. “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.”
Ohio State University is investigating allegations that Strauss, the team doctor for multiple sports teams, sexually abused students throughout his decades-long career. Strauss committed suicide in 2005. Jordan served as an assistant wrestling coach at OSU from 1986 to 1994 at the same time Strauss was employed there. He has unequivocally denied any knowledge of the abuse and has pledged to help investigators in any way he can.
