Ohio State Senator Kris Jordan is getting a lucky break after the police were called to his house over an alleged domestic dispute situation. His wife has decided not to press charges, leaving the local legislator in the clear.
But he probably expected that. After all, according to Jordan, his wife just got a little overly emotional, like girls tend to be.
The Columbus Dispatch reported on the disturbance, stating that Jordan’s wife contacted the cops after her husband allegedly pushed her around and threw some things, something he had been prone to do over the prior two years, especially if he had been drinking.
Jordan, meanwhile, blew off the allegations, saying “girls” tend to overreact and get emotional.
“She got a little upset,” Sen. Jordan told a deputy on the recording. “Girls do that.”
The 34-year-old senator went on to say the incident was “90 percent emotion.”
“I threw some things on the ground, but I didn’t hit her or anything,” he said. “So she’s all worked up about who knows.”
On the recording, Sen. Jordan tells deputies that he works at the Statehouse, “until she gets me thrown out of office,” he said. “Over (expletive) not cleaning the upstairs … and then me pushing some towels over and some other stuff over.”
If Jordan keeps this type of behavior up, he might eventually be eligible for the NRCC Young Guns program.
