Kelly Loeffler selling share of WNBA’s Atlanta Dream

Former Senator and Atlanta Dream owner Kelly Loeffler

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 06: Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) arrives for the Electoral College vote certification for President-elect Joe Biden, during a joint session of Congress at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC. Congress held a joint session today to ratify President-elect Joe Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. A group of Republican senators said they would reject the Electoral College votes of several states unless Congress appointed a commission to audit the election results.

Kelly Loeffler lost approval of WNBA players, lost her senate race and is now losing her ownership stake in the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream.

Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

A WNBA spokesperson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “As it relates to the Atlanta Dream, we understand a sale of the franchise is close to being finalized. Once the sale negotiation is concluded, additional information will be provided.”

Ramona Shelburne of ESPN:

Sources told ESPN on Tuesday that up to five bidders have expressed interest in buying the team, with Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), currently a co-owner, expected to have no association with the franchise after the sale.

Loeffler previously said she wouldn’t sell.

Count this as yet another example of her being wrong.
