The Washington Redskins mess has now made it’s way to the front page of gossip and scandal sites.

On Wednesday, Jessica McCloughan, the wife of Washington GM Scott McCloughan, was outed for tweeting at ESPN reporter Diana Russini, accusing her of performing oral sex to get an NFL scoop.

Jessica deleted her twitter account and the Redskins announced that the Twitter account used was fake. She later apologized.

“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. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.”

Radar Online now says that Jessica McCloughan’s sister-in-law, Shannon Rutherford, affirmed that she thought her husband was having an affair with Russini.

“Shannon Rutherford, Jessica’s sister-in-law, told Radar that she knew about Jessica’s belief that her husband was cheating on her with the reporter, confirming that she has been aware ‘for a few weeks’ about the ‘side chick’ prior to the Twitter scandal.”

Rutherford also told RadarOnline that the Redskins pressured Jessica McCloughan to release an apology statement that wasn’t true.
