Ohioans are calling for the resignation of State Senator Kris Jordan (R-Powell) following a 911 call his wife made during a domestic dispute.

On July 11, Delaware County deputies went to the home of Sen. Kris Jordan after his wife Melissa called 911, saying her husband was pushing her around and throwing things.

Sen. Jordan told deputies he and his wife argued over his not cleaning their condo and brushed her assertions aside by saying, “She got a little upset. Girls do that.”

Dashboard cameras also recorded Sen. Jordan telling the deputies that he worked at the Statehouse, “until she gets me thrown out of office.”

Mrs. Jordan was also recorded speaking to a deputy. She said violent incidents with her husband began two years ago, sometimes after he had been drinking. “This is not new,” she said. “He’s done this numerous times, and I just got sick of it and I just had to call.” She told deputies there were ten to fifteen guns in their home.

After speaking with the deputies, Mrs. Jordan gathered her belongings and left the house.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern said Sen. Jordan should “absolutely” resign.

Per Mrs. Jordan’s request, prosecutors will not file charges against Sen. Jordan.
