Yesterday I determined that Mark Meadows was the biggest Weasel in the House Of Representatives, but explained that I had trouble making the determination as Mark Meadows fellow member in the Freedom Caucus, Jim Jordan put up an enormous fight for the honor.

I watched in amazement as he ranted and raved at and about Michael Cohen during the highly entertaining Hose Congressional Oversight Committee Hearing on Wednesday. I loved how his sense of right and wrong was displayed. The ‘witch’ hunts that he conducted while the Republicans controlled the house, were the stuff of legend.

Hillary Clinton and Benghazi ate up so much of Jim Jordans time that it is not surprising that he has so little to show in the ‘win’ column. I have read, but have not verified that over 30 hearings were held on Benghaz, everyone and their dog was paraded in front of the Kangaroo Court. Well everyone except the people that should have been there.

There is a book, that doesn’t exist, The Embassy House, I have a copy. It is an interesting read.
Lets a deeper dive into this holier than thou preacher of the Trump doctrine.

 

James Daniel Jordan (born February 17, 1964) is the U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 4th congressional district, serving since 2007, as well as the current Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee. He is a member of the Republican Party, and a founding member of the Freedom Caucus. The district is located in the north-central and western portions of the state and includes Lima, Tiffin, and Elyria.

In 2018, he announced that he would run for the House Speaker position that will be vacant upon Paul Ryan‘s retirement in January 2019,[1] but the Democratic party took the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives that year, barring Jordan from becoming speaker. After the election, Jordan lost his bid for House Minority Leader to California Republican Kevin McCarthy in a 159-43 vote.[2]

Yes, Jim Jordan comes across as smelling of roses. Wikipedia is a strange beast, it’s intent is to gather knowledge from disparate sources. The downside is that anyone can offer ‘edits’.
Bad stuff can be kept at bay, by constantly have someone monitor the ‘edits’ and delete any that are unflattering, regardless of their truthfulness.

His ‘minor’ transgression is buried deep in the site, there by minimizing the damage:

Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach with Ohio State University’s wrestling program from 1987 to 1995.[48] OSU opened an investigation in April 2018 that looked into allegations of sexual misconduct by the former wrestling team’s physician, Richard Strauss — who was the physician during Jordan’s tenure as an assistant coach.[49][50] Dr. Strauss committed suicide in 2005.[51] In early July 2018, at least eight former wrestlers said that Jordan had been aware of, but did not respond to, allegations of sexual misconduct by Strauss.[52][53][50][54] If he had seen abuse at the time, Jordan replied, “I would have done something about it.” Former UFC world champion Mark Coleman said, “He knew as far as I’m concerned.”[50] Former 1980s Ohio State wrestler David Range said teammates spoke of Strauss’ behavior often in the locker room while Jordan was present. A nurse who worked with the team was interviewed on video by Politico and confirmed observing Strauss fondling a team member until the athlete ejaculated. Another Ohio wrestler, Dunyasha Yetts, told Politico he had asked both Jordan and Hellickson to be present for an examination with Strauss, to avoid inappropriate touching by Strauss. That allegation was denied by Jordan’s office. One former wrestler said that he saw Jordan kick a male voyeur out of the wrestlers’ sauna, though that would suggest that Jordan was aware that there was a problem — something he has to date denied.[55] None of the wrestlers accused Jordan of personal sexual misconduct.[55]

I am by no means saying that Jim Jordan was part of the ‘young men diddling’ scheme. But I find it just a little strange that this waster of millions of $dollars of tax payers money chasing non existent Democrat problems, yet clearly did not see a problem right under his eagle eyes at OSU.

So Jim Jordan gets the runners up prize in the biggest weasel of the house of representatives competition.

Who is your favorite Weasel? Let me know. and I’ll poke around.
