Majority Leader Harry Reid Says Snyder’s Foundation a ‘Phony Deal’
But it’s not going to get any easier for Snyder to live in the Maryland/D.C. area. President Obama and several Congressional Members have already supported changing the team’s name.
Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Tom Cole sent a letter to Goodell insisting that the name is a racial slur and must change; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said that the U.S. Patent Office should not protect ‘Redskins’; and, in a press release highly critical of Snyder’s new foundation, Rep. Betty McCollum said in a press release, “Team owner Dan Snyder wants to keep profiting from his team’s racist brand and use those profits to attempt to buy the silence of Native Americans with a foundation that is equal parts public relations scheme and tax deduction.
“Snyder has to realize, he is on the losing side of history,” Reid said. “And the sooner he does it, the better off we are.”
