Washington; Urbana, IL (eTruePolitics) – Rep. Jim Jordan was forced today to deny social media rumors that it took him two tries to get through the third grade at Bottenfield Elementary in Champaign County, Illinois.

“I did AWESOME in all my subjects,” Jordan said in a typed statement, emphasizing that he’d “graduated” from third grade with “tippity-top honors.”

“I don’t know about any honors but I remember little Jimmy really liked to wrestle, especially girls,” said a fellow Bottenfield classmate, who requested anonymity because he feared for his life.

In a Fox News interview Jordan responded heatedly to his former classmate, asserting he “only wrestled girls with their permission.”
