“I don’t pretend to remember to go back, to revisit all the aspects of that case.”

Senate candidate Linda McMahon to The Day of New London, on the publication of her memo instructing another pro wrestling executive to tell their wrestlers’ illegal steroid connection, Dr. George Zahorian, that he was under criminal investigation. Zahorian would be convicted at a 1991 federal trial; Vince McMahon and the McMahons’ wrestling company would be acquitted at another trial in 1994.

“I am not commenting on something that happened 20 years ago.”

Former U.S. Attorney James J. West, in an email to me, refusing to elaborate on his denial that he was the source of the tip to the McMahons.
