"When there is an accumulation of money and power into fewer and fewer hands, people with the mentality of gangsters come to the fore. Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" -- Lord Acton

When asked by his former student for help, not only did Jordan say, “No thanks,” but he called the police (https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/04/politics/jim-jordan-ohio-state-sexual-abuse-allegations/index.html?sr=twCNNp070418jim-jordan-ohio-state-sexual-abuse-allegations0126PMStory&CNNPolitics=Tw) on said man when his cries for help became politically inconvenient.

Jordan could have been an ally to his former students. Even if he’s ignorant about the alleged abuse, he could spoken out in support of alleged victims. He could still have tried to help. Instead, he abandoned his moral and ethical responsibility to protect his career.

Jim Jordan may or not be complicit in the horrific abuse at Ohio State, but even if you believe Jordan — and, to be clear, I don’t — there's no scenario in this mess where he's a good person.

Jordan is the guy who, at the IG Comey hearings, said subpenas and contempt citations and cutting of a new one would descend upon Rosenstein "tomorrow". That was like a month ago.

Jordan is complaining because CNN is continuing to work on the story. Calling it 'fake news' when they are verifying the story instead of just making chit up --
