U.S. Sen Jerry Moran is requesting information from U.S. Olympic, NCAA and Michigan State officials about serial molester Larry Nassar, the former sports doctor who was sentenced Wednesday after more than 150 women and girls said he abused them.

Moran, a Kansas Republican who is the chairman of the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, Insurance, and Data Security, and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat who is ranking member of the subcommittee, sent letters Thursday to U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun, USA Gymnastics CEO Kerry Perry, NCAA president Mark Emmert and Michigan State president Lou Anna K. Simon, who announced Wednesday night she would resign.

The letter from Moran references Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney’s lawsuit against the USOC, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University for the multiple organizational failures to “properly investigate, discipline, or remove” Nassar following complaints he sexually abused athletes.
