Democrats in the House of Representatives have sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, demanding the league provide Congress with the results of the investigation into WFT’s workplace culture.
The five-page letter comes nearly two weeks after leaked emails led to Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden’s resignation. His emails over a seven-year span, sent to then-WFT president Bruce Allen, included racist, anti-gay and misogynistic language.
There was no written report after the nearly year-long investigation, and the league has not released all the findings. According to an NFL spokesman, the league is not going to re-open the investigation or release the 650,000 emails it collected.
The letter, sent by Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-New York), who is the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Illinois) asked the league to turn over a number of documents and answer numerous questions involving the investigation by Nov. 4.
