Washington Commanders to be investigated by Virginia Attorney General

In the aftermath of an explosive letter detailing alleged financial improprieties by the Commandersthe Virginia attorney general’s office has announced it will open an investigation into the organization, according to multiple reports.

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares informed Washington of the decision on Monday, and requested “full cooperation and transparency” during their inquiry, via ESPN. He also reportedly told the Commanders he felt it was “responsibility to carefully examine the material facts after it was brought to my attention.”

Miyares, DC Attorney General Karl Racine and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh were notified last week of the allegations following the release of a 20-page letter penned by the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Reform earlier this month. The letter alleged the Commanders and owner Dan Snyder “may have engaged in a troubling, long-running, and potentially unlawful pattern of financial conduct that has victimized thousands of team fans and the National Football League.”
