Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

According to the NRA's own marketing, "I" am the NRA, not Wayne LaPierre, not Chris Cox, not any of various paid positions or any of the board members.

Without the members, the NRA is worthless. We are who the left really fears, not Mr. LaPierre, not Mr. Cox, not Mr. Cotton. It's OUR votes, our money, our influence that the left really wants to shut down.

If the documents leaked by AMc are accurate, Mr. LaPierre's spending on clothing and jet set lifestyle is troubling. I cannot imagine a legitimate reason for the NRA's top executive to spend that kind of money on clothing, jets to foreign countries, etc.

But I can wait for the lawsuits/etc to sort out and hope that the Board at some point can release all the information necessary to assuage the concerns of the members.

Nothing positive comes from the collapse of the NRA. I hope they are listening. The Board of Directors must step to the plate and deep clean whatever is rotting or step aside and let someone else get it done.

Re: NRA Leader LaPierre Says Being Extorted,

The NRA Board of Directors meeting today should be interesting.

North had sent a letter to the NRA board contending that the NRA had paid for, through a vendor, more than $200,000 of wardrobe purchases by LaPierre, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Perhaps there's others within the organization concerned about what's going on :
“There’s some housekeeping that needs to be taken care of,” Childress said after reading North’s letter.
