Linda McMahon: 1989: WWE exonerated unanimously of steroid doctor misdeeds

Blumenthal reminded McMahon that during 1989, according to court records, McMahon alerted a doctor under contract with her pro-wrestling empire of an imminent federal investigation into steroids. Blumenthal said McMahon "tipped off the doctor who worked for her about a federal criminal investigation. She hired the doctor."

After the debate, a McMahon campaign spokesman challenged Blumenthal's assertion that McMahon had improperly tipped off a doctor about the steroids probe, saying, "WWE did not want to be associated with the doctor, and as is typically the case when a company wants to break any association with someone or dismiss someone, WWE provided cause. The doctor was not 'tipped off" to anything. And that memo that Dick Blumenthal invoked was entered into evidence at trial by prosecutors who made the exact same argument Blumenthal did. Twelve jurors unanimously rejected that argument, and WWE was totally exonerated without so much as calling a single witness."
