No wonder Jordan is acting like such an asshole at the Cohen testimony before Congress, after all, everyone now knows that he likes to see high school boys raped, as alleged by several lawsuits.

One of the lawsuits specifically mentions Mr. Jordan, Republican of Ohio, who served as the wrestling team’s assistant coach in the late 1980s and early 1990s, citing news reports that wrestlers had informed him of the abuse. Lawyers pursuing both cases say they expect to call the influential conservative as a witness.

Mr. Jordan has vehemently denied allegations that he ignored sexual misconduct, and so far he has maintained the backing of his party’s heavyweights, including President Trump, Speaker Paul D. Ryan, and Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the Republican whip.

But the decision by the former athletes to sue the university means that more twists could come.
