Former Ohio State wrestlers who allege to have been sexually abused by their former team doctor, Richard Strauss, recounted their abuse in a new video given to NBC.

Why it matters: The players never referred to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who was an assistant coach on the team 20 years ago during the time of the abuse, as a participant in the abuse. Jordan has been accused by other wrestlers of failing to act against accusations against Strauss.
