The Washington Commanders National Football League team has added Harbinger Strategies and Cyprus Advocacy to its roster for matters related to the House Oversight and Reform Committee probe into the team’s alleged toxic workplace culture.
Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), who chairs the Committee, said on June 23 that Commanders owner Dan Synder “refused to protect the women who worked for him from the toxic culture he created.”
She also accused the NFL of its failure to protect them.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell testified that the Commanders’ workplace environment was the worst that he’s ever seen in his football career. He refused to say whether he would work to remove Snyder as owner of the team.
Harbinger partners Kyle Nevins, deputy chief of staff to former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA); John O’Neill, staffer to GOP Senators Trent Lott (MS) and Chuck Grassley (IA); and Parker Poling (executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee) handle the Commanders' business.
They are joined by Cyprus Advocacy’s Langston Emerson (aide to Democrats Sen. Carl Levin (MI) and Rep. Mike Capuano (MA) and Chris Brown (staffer at the House Financial Services Committee).
