Congress wants WFT documents


A Congressio­nal committee is seeking documents and informatio­n from the NFL regarding the investigat­ion into the Washington Football Team and how the league handled it.

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform said Thursday it sent a letter to Commission­er Roger Goodell requesting by Nov. 4 all documents and communicat­ion about the probe into the workplace culture at the Washington Football Team.

“We have serious concerns about what appears to be widespread abusive workplace conduct at the WFT and about the NFL’s handling of this matter,” U.S. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Rep. Raja Krishnamoo­rthi, chairman of the Subcommitt­ee on Economic and Consumer Policy, wrote in the letter to the commission­er.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league has received the letter and shares the committee’s “concern that all workplaces should be free from any form of harassment and discrimina­tion.”
