In 2018 Jim Jordon was Named In OSU SExual Abuse Lawsuit

On Tuesday, Jordan’s public-relations crisis became a legal nightmare. Attorneys filed a massive class-action lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Ohio against Ohio State University on behalf of an as-yet-unnamed former OSU wrestler. The law firm Sauder Schelkopf is seeking to represent all the students and athletes “treated” by Strauss in his two decades at the school, from the late ‘70s to the late ‘90s – a number they estimate will amount to “at least 1,500.”
Jordan, the jut-jawed Republican and anti-gay crusader in the House, is singled out in the suit: He’s one of only three former school officials named, including Strauss, though the action is aimed at all the coaches, administrators and others in positions of responsibility at OSU who, it claims, stood by while students and student-athletes were repeatedly “sexually abused, harassed, and molested,” and “forced” to seek treatment from a well-known predator even after they complained. (Strauss was the sole team doctor for the wrestlers; the men say they either had to choose to let injuries go untreated, as the lawsuit says some did, or subject themselves to yet another assault.)

Leadership: In Turblent Times


One of the most helpful and important books I've read recently.

Quick question for someone how may know campaign finance laws.


Each and every time on each and every piece of campaign material, sign and TeeVee ad
Hillary's slogan "Stronger Together" appeared it was required that the "paid for" disclaimer appear.

Does this then make it exclusive to the Hillary campaign?

Waiting for Mueller is just like waiting for a pregnancy to deliver.

I'm tired of friends, relatives and fellow activists asking me "when will we know! When will this end!"

It's difficult to move through the day, without checking every five minutes to see if labor has started.

So I'm visiting in Florida, and decided for the next two weeks, I'll join the morning

water aerobics group.

About 30 mostly women, seem cheerful.

Then at the very end of the session, the group sings a prayer evoking God and past relatives.

Then they turn toward an American flag and sing "God Bless America."

All of this is of course, their right to do. I'm not interested. At all.

I am polite, and don't move until they are finished. However, today being day three I haven't joined in, I saw elbows flying as if to say...see she doesn't join in.

It's a guarantee that I'll be questioned. Is it enough to say it's not my thing (which is not the entire truth)

I would feel better about the departure of Northam if one person

would step up and provide some kind of proof that after 1984 he demonstrated a racist heart, a moment, a decision, anything.

Is there enough in his public record that demonstrates he isn't?

I believe in redemption. Sometimes having the courage to do the right thing is bolstered by knowing you don't want to ever face the stomach churning feeling of doing the wrong thing ever again.

How does a teachable moment come to pass?



McConnell must resign. Why? Not only did he pose in front of a giant

Confederate flag; his policies and votes never evolved, just continued.
