U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell: NFL doesn’t deserve tax-exempt status

My constituents are just flabbergasted that the NFL continues to enjoy a tax exempt status… On these issues of having a hateful name for a team, and then having these cases of domestic violence, the NFL is not showing the leadership that I believe it should. And it certainly doesn’t deserve tax exempt status.

U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell, speaking during Tuesday’s hearing of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.
