Washington Redskins President Bruce Allen won’t be seeing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid at a game any time soon, despite a personal invitation to the senator.

“I will not stand idly by while a professional sports team promotes a racial slur as a team name and disparages the American people,” wrote Reid in response. “Nor will I consider your invitation to attend a home game until your organization chooses to do the right thing and change its offensive name.”

Reid stressed that the issue was a personal one for him, as he represents 27 tribes as senator.


Good question.
