Redskins GM's wife apologizes for tweet about reporter

The Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The wife of Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan has apologized for "disparaging" and "unfounded" comments on her Twitter account about an ESPN reporter.

The Redskins issued a statement on behalf of Jessica McCloughan on Wednesday night in which she acknowledged making the remarks, which said the reporter exchanged sexual favors for information.

Jessica McCloughan's statement begins: "I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account. The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN."

That apology never mentioned Dianna Russini by name. But a statement issued by ESPN said, in part: "Dianna is an excellent reporter who should never have to be subjected to such vulgar comments."

Scot McCloughan is entering his first season as Washington's GM.
