GOP Senate Caucus won’t comment on Jordan domestic violence allegation.

From ONN’s Jim Heath:

A conservative Republican, Jordan writes in each of his press releases that he’s a “proven advocate for family values.”

“We’re aware of the situation, but no charges have been filed so we’re not going to comment or speculate,” said GOP senate spokesman John McClelland.

The Jordan’s are on vacation and were unavailable for comment on camera.

There is no word yet on whether Jordan will consider resigning.

Mrs. Jordan was available for comment last night for the Columbus Dispatch.  Now suddenly neither she, nor her husband, are available because they’re “on vacation.”  Don’t you always leave on a Wednesday to go on vacation right when a story like this breaks?

The House GOP was quicker to jump to Mecklenborg’s defense, and I don’t buy for a moment that the Dispatch got ahold of Mrs. Jordan the night before they went on vacation.  It sure doesn’t look like the Senate GOP is exactly circling the wagons for Senator Jordan, huh?

Senator Jordan, your silence is deafening.

    Silly me.
    I first thought the ONN piece said that Jordan’s family values are now on vacation…

    Where do you think they’re going for vacation?  My money is on Ruby Ridge.

  • Just because you are an advocate doesn’t mean you practice what you preach it only means you know what to say to get support when you want votes.

    Usually I try to overlook these comments, but this is just below the belt so to speak and really really uncalled for.  I’ve made my share of jokes on here but this is not a funny matter in any way, shape or form.

    My apologies.

    In the previous video (which I presume you watched because you commented) 
    Jordan says he believes in concealed carry because the second amendment was for “citizens to protect themselves from an out of control government”.  In addition to that he falsely implied that the president wants to take people’s guns away and he elevated Obama to the same plane of evil as Hitler and Stalin because they were “the biggest gun control advocates in world history” (never mind that most of the OECD countries have stringent gun laws).  That kind of rhetoric, to me, is just so appalling I hardly know where to start with it.  To me, it isn’t that different from rhetoric used by Randy Weaver or Aryan Nation or the Michigan militia or some members of the sovereign citizen movement with respect to the myth of “tyrannical government” and the need for “second amendment solutions”.  That it was uttered by an elected official without censure is the saddest commentary at all and an indication that our political discourse has seriously gone off the rails.The reason for the comment because “Ruby Ridge” is a shibboleth for those that trade in that sort of rhetoric about the second amendment and tyrannical government.

    Apology accepted though Ruby Ridge leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth.

  • Greg Soper

    He is strong advocate for family values- But Jordan’s values are putting his woman in her place while exercising his right to bear arms.

    The GOP sees it as Jordan disciplining his woman

  • Sluggo

    I get that;  the actual events at Ruby Ridge were a major league F-up by the ATF.

    How could they possibly defend KJ on this?  I can see how you can defend Meck on his charges, maybe the cop was overly aggressive, maybe the stripper was lying, etc, etc.  How do you defend domestic violence?  By calling his wife a liar?  Then there is the matter of the 911 tapes – pretty hard to deny the fear in MJs voice.  If the Senate defends Jordan now, they will all look like a bunch of wife-beaters.  BTW, Kris really is on vacation – the Ohio House and Senate have recessed until Sept.
