After being accused of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse by a team doctor when he was an Ohio State wrestling coach, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) spoke out on "Special Report."
Earlier this week, Jordan's office denied knowing about any allegations against Richard Strauss, a team doctor who died in 2005.
Jordan worked as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State from 1987 until 1995 before going into politics. He was elected to the U.S. House in 2006 and is seen as a contender to be the next Speaker of the House.
"It's false," Jordan said of the allegation in an at-times emotional interview.
"Our coaching staff, we would've dealt with this," he said, adding that the health and well-being of OSU student athletes always came first.
He dismissed claims by former wrestler Mike DiSabato, who said on CNN "Jim knew about what I call the deviant sexual atmosphere."
