Awkward! Racist LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling is a Democrat!
According to National Review, Sterling has donated to a number of Democrats in the past, including former New Jersey Sen. Bill Bradley and former California Gov. Gray Davis.
It also appears Sterling, who built a successful real estate empire before buying the Clippers, used his millions to buy favor from liberal civic groups, including the NAACP, The group had previously recognized Sterling, and was scheduled to do so again, even though he had previously faced racism accusations. In 2009, the Huffington Post even called on the NAACP not to give him an award because of it. Because of his left-leaning politics and checkbook, however, the NAACP looked the other way. At least, until now. The group has announced he will not get their 2014 lifetime achievement award at an upcoming event after all.
