Other messages were more grammatical, containing language copied directly from an email sent by Kyle Lierman, a liaison in the White House Office of Public Engagement, that encouraged players to promote Obamacare in the runup to the big game.
“Football fans, hope you’re getting ready for Super Bowl XLVIII, don’t forget you can #getcovered at healthcare.gov,” the Ravens linebacker tweeted earlier in the evening. That language was included word-for-word in Lierman’s email to a representative at the NFL Players Association on Sunday suggesting “some thoughts on what players could tweet.”
“They can definitely change these up or put their own spin on these,” Lierman said in the email, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon on Monday.
Many, though, did not significantly change the suggested language. Ayanbadejo sent three tweets, all of which copied Lierman’s suggested language with the exception of the typo in the last tweet.
