NRA chief Wayne LaPierre has some explaining to do. Trouble began with a spat between the NRA and their long time Oklahoma City based ad agency Ackerman McQueen. Nothing short of acrimony describes NRA’s split with Ackerman McQueen, last month the NRA sued Ackerman for allegedly withholding documentation required for a financial audit of their relationship. Ackerman countered with request for documentation of $240,000 in travel expenses, $200,000 in luxury Beverly Hills Italian suits charged to Ackerman by LaPierre. Oh snap!
Notwithstanding this image of LaPierre which makes it difficult to imagine he spent a dime on custom suits, the New York Stare Attorney General’s Office launched an investigation of NRA finances. Attorney General Letitia James (of the same office which dissolved the Donald J Trump charitable foundation) has the power to dissolve the NRA if evidence proves violation of State charity law.
Justice might finally prevail. Meanwhile I ponder sweet, ironic justice of the NRA imploding, not for flagrant disregard of humanity, but for entitled hubris of their poster boy Lapierre. Sigh.
