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.
