Manning Hires Ari Fleischer
Peyton Manning has hired former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer to deal with allegations he received HGH (human growth hormones) while recovering from a neck injury.
The accusation stems from an investigation into the sports doping industry by Al Jazeera.
In the report, British journalist Liam Collins secretly recorded Charlie Sly, a former intern at the Guyer Institute where Manning sought treatment for a herniated disc, who said Manning was given the performance-enhancing drug under his wife’s name.
Fleisher told The Denver Post on Saturday the report is completely false.
“There’s no truth to it,” he said. “What they have is a well-known con man from England who secretly recorded a former intern.”
Manning has also vehemently denied the report, which he called “complete garbage.”
