Saints Reply to White House Rumor

Posted on: June 26, 2010 1:29 pm

Pro Football Talk suggested that the Saints delay in visiting the White House could be related to owner Tom Benson’s right-leaning politics. Greg Bensel, head of Saints PR, called that “crap”.

Jeff Duncan on clears the rest up.

"Mr. Benson is excited for our visit to the White House," Bensel said in an email. Benson, he said, "is not only eager to attend the White House celebration but is also eager to get the 2010 season started."

The Saints reportedly have scheduled their trip to coincide with a preseason trip to the Boston area. The Saints play the New England Patriots in an exhibition game on Aug. 12.

Bensel said the Saints' White House visit has been scheduled for months. He said White House officials were in charge of the event and thus responsible for releasing the date and other information surrounding it. The Saints, he said, are simply following their direction.
