Why is Kelly Loeffler still a WNBA co-owner despite ‘Donald Sterling vibes’?

The WNBA needs to force Kelly Loeffler out. Loeffler is the co-owner of the Atlanta Dream . She’s also a U.S. Senator from Georgia, appointed to her seat last December. What Loeffler has said publicly is at least as bad, if not worse, than what Donald Sterling said in a recorded conversation with his mistress — and Sterling was forced to sell the Los Angeles Clippers . It’s time for the WNBA to do the same with Loeffler. In the past week alone, she was on Fox News implying that Black Americans do not have the same Constitutional rights as non-Black Americans, posted a video supporting the anti-LGBTQ Family Policy Alliance , and called the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down Louisiana’s highly restrictive abortion law “an activist agenda.” In case you’ve forgotten, the WNBA is a women’s league. A league where roughly two-thirds of the players are Black and a fair number are out as gay. For a league that has so many women unafraid to take bold stances, to speak out for civil rights and justice, to trade seasons of their already-brief careers to be of service to others, how does the WNBA justify Loeffler’s continued ownership? As of right now, we have no official word. We reached out to the WNBA for comment and haven’t gotten a response.
