A woman who says she is the former mistress of New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman filed a petition saying that Cashman told her he intentionally misled federal investigators during the Roger Clemens investigation, reports USA Today.

Louise Neathway also says that Cashman knew of clubhouse steroid use by various Yankees players and was ambivalent to the use of performance enhancing drugs as long as nothing came back to the Yankees organization.

The petition also states Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez‘s new attorney, Joseph Tacopina, has a conflict of interest in Rodriguez’s case because his partner, Stephen Turano, represents Neathway in New Jersey and knows of information from Neathway’s relationship with Cashman that could bolster Rodriguez’s case against the Yankees.

SI NOW:  Is there a conspiracy against A-Rod?

Neathway, 37,  faces 52 criminal charges include stalking, harassment, lying to a grand jury, criminal impersonation and grand larceny. Neathway faces deportation if she is found guilty.

More from USA Today:

She also allegedly threatened to shoot her former mother-in-law – a document stamped Nov. 29, 2012, states, “The defendant threatened to tell the press and Mr. Cashman’s family, particularly his wife, that he and the defendant had had a sexual relationship, that she had become pregnant with, and aborted, his child, and that she had suffered a series of serious medical complications from the abortion that had required surgeries.

No one has anything better to do than bash this woman? Get over yourselves! I'm sure none of you could walk a day in her shoes and live.

I don't suppose a jilted mistress facing criminal charges and deportation has any reason to lie about Cashman, right? And is the author's name really Scooby?

Can we really consider the claims of a "scorned" woman who has made a lot of outlandish claims before?

Yeah, she tried to extort Cashman previously, but we should take this woman's word as gospel?  Yikes, I'm sure Arod slipped her a few bucks for her "testimony".

MLB could not pay for this priceless attention it is getting.  Yankees get the wild card and they will outdraw the SuperBowl in ratings.  Go Yankees!!!

I would believe ARod but he's a lying scumbag, I would believe Cashman but he's a lying scumbag, and I would believe this lady but she's a lying scumbag.  Good times all around!

ridiculous article.  this woman is being tried on over 50 counts against cashman- including stalking and if found guilty- shes getting deported.  anything she says should be discarded.

Is this professional reporting or a personal diary?  Filed a petition?  What does that mean?  Filed it with who?  What impact does a petition have?  And she's facing 52 charges herself?  Under what circumstances?  Great, there's a link to a USA Today story.  Here's an idea... do some of your own investigative reporting.  Or are you getting kickbacks for the number of page clicks you generate for them?

From A-Rod to Cashman the Yankees are an embarrassment to baseball.  Time for them to(again) be irrelevant for a decade.

Not saying she's lying,but you know her attny.told her if she is,she could be sued for slander. So she has nothing to lose,but she just might have some proof. If you notice how Cash/Yankees operate,when someone is telling the truth about them,they scream even louder. So A-Rod and crew need to just watch this trial and get more ammo for his case.

there's what you know and what you can prove. Saying I know "this or that" really means nothing unless she has taped conversations. I am sure most GM's around the league knew about PED use but at the time there were no penalties or testing. This woman is facing 52 charges and possible deportation. She is looking to cut a deal and throw as many people under the bus as possible.

It just gets uglier and uglier... I feel like if this is true, the Yankees should have to eat every single penny of A-Rod's remaining contract. Subtract his salary from their payroll next year, and that's their cap, and I say "cap" in the loosest sense of the world.

Living in America four things are a certainty 1- Life (quality differs depending who you are), 2- Death (does not discriminate unlike some people in America),  3- Taxes (still have not figured a way around that yet, unless we all decide to stop paying at once) ..... AND  If you lie to the feds you go to jail... I hope this is true, what better way to put a bow on this side show called Major League Baseball

@eddie767 not sure?  shes being tried on 52 counts INCLUDING LYING TO A GRAND JURY - and stalking cashman himself- you dont think she has an ulterior motive?  cmon

@kj4027 Any person from another country that has crimincal charges against them faces that I am sure. But there was an article of Cashman with video and pictures of them eating together the day after she apparently extorted money from him. Its all bull, now it says he has to pay his ex wife over a million bucks a month. Not to hard to figure out what happened here. ANYONE can faile charges against anyone and if your NY Yankees GM I am positive that takes only a few calls or emails to get that done to call the cops.

@Psy Power @mystafugee where has she lied? She's accused, its not proven, I cold say you hit me with a truck, BIG DEAL! Innocent until proven guilty
