For NRA Members

You should read Tiffany Johnson's letter to the NRA Board and, if you agree, sign it.

Amid anxiety over falling revenue and mounting legal trouble has come news that the gun group’s longtime chief executive, Wayne LaPierre, billed $275,000 for purchases at the Zegna luxury men’s wear boutique in Beverly Hills. Its largely ceremonial president, Oliver L. North, had a contract worth millions of dollars a year. And a litany of payments benefited prominent officials, like the $60,000 for advertising on a TV show featuring the rock musician and N.R.A. board member Ted Nugent.

The reckoning for the LaPierre administration with be painful and quite likely shocking. Wayne is such a common name for serial killers, his sucking the life out of the NRA is appropriate. The GOA was what the NRA was tending towards, and with its pending failure, it will be interesting to see where the ex-NRA members go.

Wayne was also using the NRA to cover the cost of his mistress, which I believe is a perk that should be extended to all life members.

Pushing the edge, guys.

DA, really? What does his wife have to do with anything.

And so.... {Ka-ZAP!}

re the paragon said...

CM, really? Lapeirre did have the NRA pay for the lodging of a hottie that is his mistress. That is not, and should not be, "pushing the edge". It is a simple statement of fact. Wishing that the NRA would extend such courtesies to Life Members, which I am, even if the SOB's haven't sent me a magazine in years, and good luck complaining about that too, seems to me to be a mild request.

Along with the wardrobe and a total of $267,460.50 in travel, the records show that LaPierre asked that the NRA’s longtime marketing firm pay $13,800 to rent an apartment for a summer intern. A source for The Wall Street Journal told the paper that the documents appear authentic.

She's a fine, upstanding lady, from her LinkedIn profile. I certainly would eat an apple if she offered it.

Comrade Misfit said...

What's pushing the edge is mentioning his wife. She's not fair game.

WLP has got to go.

Ah, fuck it.
