Fifteen women told The Washington Post that they had been sexually harassed by Washington Redskins executives

Fifteen women told The Washington Post that they had been sexually harassed by Washington Redskins executives
The Washington Post, on Thursday evening, published a report alleging widespread sexual misconduct among senior NFL team executives formerly known as Washington Redskins.

Three men who were martyred in the article, Larry Michael, Alex Santos and Richard Mann II, left the team last week.

"I have never been in a more hostile, manipulative, and passive aggressive environment," Julia Paine, former vice president of communications, told the Pain newspaper. "And she worked in politics."

Rumors were circulating around the article during the past week after the team had appointed DC star attorney Beth Wilkinson to conduct an "independent review of the team's culture, policies and allegations of misconduct in the workplace."

The article does not directly link teammate Dan Snyder to the incidents, but describes it as creating what women considered a "sophisticated verbal abuse" culture. The three minority shareholders of the team have recruited an investment bank to help sell their total 40 percent stake in the team.

Team Leader Bruce Allen was long expelled in December. He was replaced by a new coach, Ron Rivera, who was given ample space to change the culture around the organization.

Two women journalists from other organizations registered with the mail to describe the cases of harassment.

Ryanon Walker, who reports on the "Athletic" team, said she had filed a complaint with the team claiming that Santos had tweaked it and told her she had a "donkey like a cart".

Michael, who has worked as a radio voice for the team for 16 years, abruptly retired on Wednesday. Post article claims that in 2018, he made comments about the attractiveness of a college intern in a live microphone.

The article describes the team's training camp in Richmond as a "hot spot for improper activity", centered around the tobacco company's restaurant, which was across the street from the team's hotel, Omni.
