    National Rifle Asso. CEO Wayne LaPierre.



    The NRA's Wayne LaPierre is living like a Russian oligarch .... and on your membership dime folks, even though the organization is drowning in legal fees......

    Hmmm... now according to your article:

    ocuments published online reportedly show more than $542,000 that the National Rifle Association's (NRA) public relations firm alleges the organization's CEO, Wayne LaPierre, billed to it, including $39,000 for shopping at a clothing store in one day, $18,300 for a car and driver in Europe, and $13,800 in rent payments for an intern. The anonymously posted expense reports are seemingly genuine, a source familiar with the original documents told The Wall Street Journal. The expenses also allegedly include more than $200,000 in “Air Transportation” costs in less than a month, partially connected to a Christmastime Bahamas visit by LaPierre, the Journal reported. The documents include letters that the PR firm, Ackerman McQueen, reportedly wrote to LaPierre. “We need to address your wardrobe you required us to provide, specifically purchases at the Zegna store in Beverly Hills, CA,” one letter reportedly said, including an attached list of expenses from 2004 to 2017 worth $274,695.03.

    Just to point out... that the overbilling was TO THE PR firm that the NRA uses.. not actually overbilling NRA members.

    Now..that may indicated some malfeasance on the part of Ackerman and LA pierre. It might indicated that Ackerman was bribing La Pierre...so they could continue to be the NRA's pr firm (and perhaps in doing so overbill the NRA).

    but lets be accurate here folks.. .according to the article..Pierre was not overbilling the NRA.

    Yet no comment about La Pierre’s spending?

    The NRA of course. and the NRA is currently in a lawsuit with the PR firm over the firm overcharging. So.. if may be the PR firm is trying to divert attention from its overcharges to the NRA.

    But as the article points out..it was charges to the PR firm.. not to the NRA that LA pierre is accused of overdoing.

    Where in the article is the NRA suing the PR firm? The PR firm isn't going to front the NRA CEO $542,000 out of the kindness of its heart.

    Either it will be recompensed by the NRA, or the NRA will have another lawsuit on its hands.

    And where does the NRA obtain its operating funds? From membership dues and donations. From people right here on this board.

    The NRA is on the verge of being declared insolvent. La Pierre may as well go on a spending spree for himself with NRA free money.

    And I notice you altogether avoided the NRA's $24 million debt for legal fees. Is the PR firm on the hook for that also?

    Oh wait... they are already doing that.
    They're a non-profit orginization. So, of course the members pay the bills.
