NRA’s IRS 990 for 2020. The highest NRA officials were leasing vehicles and charging them to NRA. (Probably not keeping track of business vs. personal mileage, as the IRS requires.) Not only that, but at the end of the lease, when you can buy at a favorable price, they were doing just that, and reselling them (so they could lease another and bill NRA), and pocketing the cash.
This is chump change, in light of all the other financial misconduct, but it makes us wonder. It’s like an executive with a million-dollar salary swiping the toilet paper from the bathrooms and emptying the petty cash containers after work. At the highest levels of NRA management, was the culture of corruption so pervasive that it became a habit? Even their cars had to be billed to the members, and then they had to swipe their value after the lease ended, too?
