Wayne is going down the drain

Annie Deighnaugh

Seems all your good NRA dues and fees you've been paying every time you buy a gun have gone to a good cause...good for wayne that is.


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....


In addition to his Beverly Hills wardrobe purchases, Mr. LaPierre, who earns more than $1.4 million a year, billed $267,000 in personal expenses, including flights and limousine service for trips to the Bahamas, Florida, Nevada, Budapest and an Italian lake resort, the leaked documents show. He even arranged for Ackerman to pay an intern’s rent.

I guess it's not enough to be used as a money funnel from the russians to the candidates, but you have to dress well to do it....maybe he got fashion advice from manafort...y'know the guy with the ostrich jacket...

It's a racket and has been for a long while. NRA has been basically a front for the gun manufacturers. It would be nice to see these guys get their comeuppance.

Yeah, I bet he's sorry now that Hillary wasn't elected ... hate for the president was keeping them in business.

What a shocker! Oh wait, no it's not. They're clearly a dirty organization.

I wonder if those that paid dues feel suckered? Nah, probably not. Like the ones that gave money to build the wall. Cognitive dissonance is strong!

My nephew wrote a check to the NRA and sent it to them in their postage-prepaid envelope. He posted it on Facebook before sending it off. It read:

Blacked out address. "Pay to the order of the NRA. $ None Thoughts and Prayers Dollars. A scribble signature and Memo: For Wayne's problems.
