Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) politicized a high profile sexual abuse case that includes the chairman of the Michigan Republican Party as an alleged victim.
Ron Weiser, who is also a member of the University of Michigan board of regents, alleged in March that he had been abused by now deceased U-M athletic doctor Robert Anderson in the mid-1960s.
“Our stories need to be told,” Weiser told the Detroit News. “The actions of Anderson were wrong on so many levels. I appreciate those who are telling their story, no matter how difficult.”
Dozens of former athletes have leveled accusations at Anderson, “with most saying they were given unnecessary penis and prostate checks during routine medical exams, as well as cases of genital fondling and masturbation,” according to Mlive.
As victims continue to speak publicly, Nessel was asked Thursday if her office would be investigating the Anderson case.
