Connolly Statement on Oversight Committee Report on the Washington Commanders
Washington, December 8, 2022
Today, Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Government Operations, released the following statement regarding the Committee on Oversight and Reform's staff report on the hostile workplace at the Washington Commanders:
“Today’s Oversight Committee report is damning. The Commanders workplace was defined by a toxic, misogynistic culture that Dan Snyder not only oversaw, but actively participated in and contributed to. His treatment of the women he employed was grotesque and his conduct toward them after they spoke out was despicable. His stonewalling of our Committee, including by withholding more than 40,000 relevant documents, can only be interpreted as a sorry attempt to conceal further evidence of his own wrongdoing.
Above all, I want to thank the women who put their lives on hold and their careers on the line in order to introduce Dan Snyder to some accountability. They are the heroes of this story.”
