Two Ex-OSU Athletes Say Jim Jordan Pressured Them To Recant Statments Against Him

Associated Press

Two former Ohio State wrestlers are sharing text messages they received asking them to walk back their statements against Ohio Republican congressman Jim Jordan.  

Dunyasha Yetts and Mike DiSabato say messages from ex-coach Russ Hellickson were sent under pressure from Jordan. The texts ask the men to recant and support Jordan's claims he was unaware of the sexual abuse allegations against the late former team doctor Richard Strauss.  Jordan recently announced he will seek to become the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
