Former FBI director Louis Freeh's firm has wrapped up their investigation into the Penn State sexual assault scandal, and now turns their eyes towards the New Orleans Saints bounty program and wiretapping allegations. Saints owner Tom Benson hired the Freeh Group primarily to investigate the wiretapping allegations made against Saints general manager Mickey Loomis.
Saints president of communications Greg Bensel released a statement via email to the New Orleans Times-Picayune regarding the investigation that the Freeh Group is currently conducting.
"We take these allegations very seriously. As a result, we have hired the Freeh Group, founded by former director of the FBI and former federal judge Louis Freeh. Mr. Benson moved quickly to hire them and has spared no expense to get to the bottom of these allegations."
The Freeh Group began their investigation into the matter three months ago, and that investigation is still ongoing.
