Here’s a photo of Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan and his wife, Jessica McCloughan.

We’re writing about Mrs. McCloughan today because she allegedly used her private twitter account to send the following tweet to ESPN reporter/anchor Diana Russini:

This has to be the story she tweeted Russini about. A day later, the Redskins named Kirk Cousins the starter.

How certain can you be that the former owner of this account was Mrs. McCloughan? Her son’s account (not deleted) tweeted to her earlier this year.

After Jessica’s tweet popped up on Black Sports Online, Mrs. McCloughan deleted her twitter account.

[UPDATE II8:15 PM: Scott McCloughan says it was not fake and apologizes for his wife sending the tweetHis wife has also apologized.]
