Report: 50 senators urge Redskins name change

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Fifty senators have signed a letter urging the NFL to force the Washington Redskins to change their name, TheNew York Times reports.
The Times says the letter cites the NBA's recent sanctions against Clippers owner Donald Sterling after racist comments he made were caught on tape and made public.
"The N.F.L. can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur," the letter reads. "We urge the N.F.L. to formally support a name change for the Washington football team."
According to The Times, Mark Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia were one of five Senate Democrats who did not sign the letter.
