The defenders of NRA’s corrupt leadership didn’t take long to react. Here is their first hit-piece. The critics are corruption “repeat unproven and spurious allegations about Wayne and then argue that regardless of all he’s done for the association we’d be better off if we just send him packing.” Unproven and spurious? They’ve been proven by LaPierre’s own testimony in the bankruptcy hearing, NRA’s own tax forms (one signed by LaPierre himself) and other solid documentation. LaPierre’s treasurer took the Fifth sixty times in court. LaPierre hired him for NRA after the man was caught embezzling a million from his past employer. In the NY lawsuit, LaPierre’s own Answer admits to a list of corrupt acts, and that his executive assistant was caught stealing $41,000 but kept her job.
Unproven and spurious? This is a powerful member of the board of directors writing. If you want to know why LaPierre is still head of the NRA, this tells you all you need to know.
