Share

Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal has investigated an account under the name @forargument on Twitter.

Mrs. Goodell admitted to maintaining the account via written statement.

Jane Skinner Goodell, the wife of National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell, has been revealed as the person behind a sporadically active Twitter account that, according to The Wall Street Journal, sent 14 frustrated tweets to sports reporters. After the Journal reached out to Skinner, the account was made private and later deleted.

New Orleans cop dies in line of duty, mayor says
The shooting occurred just before 12:30 a.m., as the officer exchanged gunfire with a suspect at Cindy Place Apartments. Several officers returned fire and the suspect was hit and brought to a hospital and arrested, authorities said.

Her exact quote was "It was a really silly thing to do and was done out of frustration and love".

'As a former media member, I'm always bothered when the coverage doesn't provide a complete and accurate picture of a story, ' she said in her statement to the Journal. I'm also a wife and a mom. "I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!" Her father Sam Skinner, is a former Secretary of Transportation and White House Chief of Staff under President George H.W. Bush. I have a feeling she'll be back online soon with another account, but with a better strategy for staying in the shadows. "He is already doing this".

"Reads like a press release from players' union".

"The premise of your article is silly", @forargument tweeted on October 3 at the Journal after an article about disagreement among league owners over handling of the anthem protests. "What board of directors in this country would all agree on this issue?"

Probably because she didn't expect anyone to pay attention, it doesn't look like she took great pains to throw people off the scent.

Just a devoted wife trying to stick up for her man. "None of those tweets have elicited replies, likes or retweets", adds the WSJ in a detail that caused me to nod grimly and involuntarily mutter "Same" even as I typed this sentence.
