Uproar about Isiah Thomas running the WNBA's New York Liberty is still in full speed.

The Women's Sport Foundation is the latest to publicly object, filing a petition Thursday to deny Thomas the job of president and part-owner. The foundation calls on the WNBA Board of Governors to disallow the hiring for multiple reasons, focusing mostly on his past tenure with the New York Knicks, during which he was involved in a sexual harrassment case.

That case resulted in $11.6 million in damages paid to Anucha Browne Sanders, but none of that was paid by Thomas. The Madison Square Garden Company, which owns the Knicks and Liberty, assumed all wrongdoing.

The petition states, "Every day, young girls across the country hone their skills in hopes of one day scoring the winning basket on a college court or in the WNBA Championships. The WNBA’s message to those girls if Mr. Thomas is approved as part-owner of the New York Libe

rty is that sexual harassment — inexcusable behavior in any other workplace — is not only tolerated but is instead rewarded at the WNBA."

Judging by the amount of outrage the public expressed, this petition might get the attention of the WNBA.
