Kluwe says Vikings reneged on report
July 15, 2014
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe said Tuesday the team has reneged on a promise to give him a copy of their investigation into his allegations of anti-gay conduct by a coach.
The Vikings in January hired two outside lawyers to examine Kluwe's claims that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer used slurs and taunts to try to quash Kluwe's outspoken support for gay marriage. Priefer denied the allegations.
Kluwe's lawyer, Clayton Halunen, said in a statement the Vikings told him Monday the investigators have handed in their report, but the team said it won't provide a copy to him or the public.
The Vikings and their two attorneys, former Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Eric Magnuson and former U.S. Justice Department trial attorney Chris Madel, didn't immediately return messages from The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The team said in a statement to KSTP-TV that it regards this investigation ''extremely seriously.'' An ''exhaustive review is in its final stages'' and the Vikings will comment when it's complete.
