The Deshuan Watson signing reminded me about this story about the Dallas Cowboys

Today's news in brief:
This story from last month went away pretty quick:
THE DALLAS COWBOYS paid a confidential settlement of $2.4 million after four members of their iconic cheerleading squad accused a senior team executive of voyeurism in their locker room as they undressed during a 2015 event at AT&T Stadium


One of the cheerleaders alleged that she clearly saw ... the Cowboys' longtime senior vice president for public relations and communications, standing behind a partial wall in their locker room with his iPhone extended toward them while they were changing their clothes.... [He] gained entry to the back door of the cheerleaders' locked dressing room by using a security key card.

[He] also was accused ... of taking "upskirt" photos of ... the daughter of team owner Jerry Jones 


A Cowboys representative said the team thoroughly investigated both alleged incidents and found no wrongdoing


[The senior VP] continued working for the Cowboys, in his same role, for nearly six years after the settlement.

More on that VP:

The former Cowboys senior vice president for public relations and communications is a trusted adviser and friend to the Jones family. He’s a confidant. He worked tirelessly not just for the family and to protect the organization’s image, but for Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin and others who stepped in it from a public relations standpoint.

Jones has made no secret of his love of partying. [The VP] was often left to deal with the fallout when details surfaced
