    NRA Members - Here's Wayne Lapierre is Living the Good Life from your dues:

    Worth it, though, right, guys?

    Scandal-ridden NRA head Wayne LaPierre digs in against gun control after mass shootings and Trump support for background checks - CBS News

    LaPierre's seven-figure salary, penchant for luxury clothing shopping sprees and reports that he sought to have the NRA buy him a $6 million mansion at an exclusive golf community have drawn considerable scrutiny amid allegations of rampant misspending.

    "Anything that gets said by Wayne LaPierre is going to be followed by 'amidst turmoil over $300,000 in suits and a $6 million mansion they were going to buy him,' and all these other allegations that are out there.
    NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre Questioned on Travel Expenses - WSJ

    National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre charged the organization’s ad agency more than $240,000 for expenses related to trips he took to Italy, Hungary, the Bahamas and other locales without providing adequate documentation, according to a letter from the ad agency given to the group’s board last week and described by people familiar with the matter.

    Some of Mr. LaPierre’s expenses were charged to one of the ad firm’s credit cards, the people said, and overall costs included a 2014 stay at the Four Seasons hotel in Budapest and expenses related to trips to Palm Beach, Fla., and Reno, Nev. The ad firm, Ackerman McQueen Inc., was reimbursed over time by the gun-rights group, these people said.

    NRA Spent Tens of Thousands on Hair and Makeup for CEO Wayne LaPierre’s Wife, Susan

    The NRA spent tens of thousands of dollars bringing hair and makeup artists around the country for the wife of its CEO, two sources told The Daily Beast. The expenses–which included plane flights and luxury hotel stays for the stylists–are bound to fuel an already-raging debate over what some see as a spendthrift culture in the NRA’s upper echelons. The NRA, meanwhile, called it a “non-story,” and said their ex-ad firm was responsible for any such expenses.

    Actually, NRA members paid for all of the expenses of the LaPierres and the board members.

    At least that swamp dweller is being supported by private funds, but it is nice to let folks know that non-profit does not mean frugal and not without more than adequate perks for those at the top of of such organizations. There are many non-profit organizations that pay their leader(s) more than the POTUS gets and supply them with many other perks as well.

    It seems that those involved in non-profit medical care organizations do quite well:

    Here's a prominent example:

    Humane Society CEO: The $4 Million Man - HumaneWatch

    Since 1994, Wayne Pacelle has raked in nearly $4 million as an animal-rights activist. In fact, according to HSUS’s most recent tax forms, Wayne Pacelle received $356,305 in compensation from HSUS in 2013—a salary that puts him in the top 1% in more than half of the states in the country. So his nickname of Wayne “1%” Pacelle refers to two meanings: His income ranking, and also the amount of HSUS’s budget that is given to pet shelters.

    I'll be sending the NRA a big donation come next year for the election cycle. They are doing great work. Without them we would have no gun rights at all. Considering how much the anti-gun people hate the NRA, they must be doing a good job.

    That's great! Wayne needs a bigger closet. All those Zegna suits need a good home.

    I'm glad to help. He also works tirelessly for my gun rights. We need more like him.
