Washington Redskins scandal: What to know about the allegations inside Dan Snyder’s organization

first_imgAfter days of speculation about misconduct within the Redskins’ organization, The Washington Post on Thursday released a story detailing years of alleged sexual harassment and threats of retaliation against 15 women who spoke to the newspaper.The report did not say embattled owner Dan Snyder harassed women, but it did offer a look inside the organization he’s run since 1999 and uncovered allegations of Snyder belittling subordinates and fostering a culture that enabled harassing behavior. Text messages by former Redskins staffers as well as an on-the-record account implicated a host of prominent names involved with the Washington franchise, including recently departed director of pro personnel Alex Santos and radio broadcaster Larry Michael.Below are some of the key details reported in the Post’s must-read investigation, which the paper said was based on interviews with more than 40 current and former employees.MORE: Washington’s timeline of dysfunction under Daniel SnyderWhat we know about the Redskins sexual harassment scandalFifteen female former Redskins employees detailed accounts of sexual harassment to the Post, including Emily Applegate, a former marketing coordinator who spoke to the newspaper on the record. The story outlines a culture of rampant harassment and toxicity where women were regularly subjected to sexual remarks and inappropriate touching.Among the examples of alleged misconduct was Michael describing the attractiveness of a college intern on a hot mic, Santos inappropriately touching and making advances toward two reporters and a host of employees, and group messages debating the appearances of female colleagues. Women were also repeatedly told to wear revealing clothes, according to the report.Several employees accused of abusive behavior were reportedly investigated but not dismissed at the time. This week, however, three people implicated in the article retired or were removed from the organization. Michael retired and Santos was dismissed. Assistant director of pro personnel Richard Mann II was also recently fired.While Snyder was not accused of making sexual remarks to women, he “routinely belittled top executives, according to three former members of his executive staff.” On one occasion, the report states, Snyder mocked then-president of business operations Dennis Greene for having been a male cheerleader in college. That type of leadership apparently set in motion a top-down culture of abuse.“It was the most miserable experience of my life,” Applegate said. “And we all tolerated it because we knew if we complained — and they reminded us of this — there were 1,000 people out there who would take our job in a heartbeat.”How far back do the accusations go?The earliest accusation in the Post’s report came from an incident in 2006. The most recent was from 2019.MORE: Why the Redskins’ new name announcement is delayedWhich Redskins employees are accused of sexual harassment?As of Thursday evening, the Redskins had parted ways with each of the people accused of sexual harassment in the Post’s report. Michael, Santos and Gershman left over the past two weeks, while the others had previously moved on from the organization.Larry Michael (radio broadcaster)Alex Santos (director of pro personnel)Richard Mann II (assistant director of pro personnel)Dennis Greene (president of business operations)Mitch Gershman (chief operating officer)Other unnamed trainers and employees, one of whom allegedly looked up a woman’s skirtWhat did the Redskins do to address the allegations?A damning aspect of the report are allegations the team intentionally swept aside internal incidents of misconduct. Audio of Michael discussing the attractiveness of an intern that was stored on a hard drive, for example, was apparently deleted by a team attorney. The organization told the Post the audio was moved to a confidential HR file.There were also incidents that occurred in plain view of numerous employees, such as when Santos pinched a reporter on the hip “in full view of other team employees and reporters.” Santos remained on staff after that inappropriate gesture.Did Dan Snyder know about the allegations of harassment?No one in the report outright accused Snyder of being aware of the harassment, but people did tell the Post they were skeptical he and former team president Bruce Allen didn’t know. They also blamed Snyder for a subpar HR department and example-setting rude behavior toward those around him.Have the Redskins responded to the report?The Redskins have hired attorney Beth Wilkinson of the firm Wilkinson Walsh to conduct an independent review “of this entire matter.”The team also issued the following statement:“The Washington Redskins football team takes issues of employee conduct seriously. … While we do not speak to specific employee situations publicly, when new allegations of conduct are brought forward that are contrary to these policies, we address them promptly.”Coach Ron Rivera, who is entering his first year in Washington, also issued a statemeent Thursday night.”Biggest thing is we have to move forward from this & make sure everybody understands we have policies that we will follow and that we have an open door policy with no retribution,” Rivera said. “Plus my daughter works for the team and I sure as hell am not going to allow any of this!” On Friday, Dan Snyder released a statement of his own.Dan Snyder: pic.twitter.com/xlRD1c23UD— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 17, 2020The NFL also issued a statement on the Post’s report.An NFL statement on the Washington Post story alleging sexual harassment and other misconduct by former staffers is below.
