How do you get people to forget about years of sexual harassment and verbal abuse against female employees?  You fire those involved, hire an "independent" investigator to look into the allegations and hire a female.

Now that's not a knock on Julie Donaldson, who was hired by the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins as the senior vice president of media.  It's a knock at Daniel Snyder.

From ESPN:

The NFL's Washington football team has hired Julie Donaldson to oversee all of its broadcasts as senior vice president of media, becoming the team's highest-ranking female executive, it was announced Tuesday.

Donaldson will be part of Washington's radio team, but she won't be doing play-by-play. Former play-by-play announcer Larry Michael retired last week amid allegations of sexual harassment, as detailed by the Washington Post.

Donaldson isn't directly replacing Michael, who held numerous roles in the organization, but she will be responsible for overseeing the broadcast operation. Her first task will be to hire a play-by-play announcer, and she will have power and input on content for the team's various broadcast platforms.

Why does it take a sexual harassment scandal to make you hire a female executive?  Because that's how idiots think.  The shitshow in Washington rolls on, no matter what the football team calls themselves.

Good luck dealing with this level of incompetence Julie.
