Democrats sue to dissolve the NRA
The Democrats are going after the NRA, the most effective advocacy group on the right. The New York attorney general, Letitia James is accusing the NRA of “illegal conduct” including “[the] diversion of millions of dollars away from the charitable mission of the organization for personal use by senior leadership, awarding contracts to the financial gain of close associates and family, and appearing to dole out lucrative no- show contracts to former employees in order to buy their silence and continued loyalty.”
The civil suit also names CEO Wayne LaPierre and three other NRA executives – Wilson “Woody” Philips, John Frazer and Joshua Powell.
Here’s the deal: they are suing the NRA so the group doesn’t spend money in the election to help Trump. The Democrats want to tie up the groups finances with legal fees so they are less likely to spend that money on the election. And James seeking to DISSOLVE the group, to wipe it out. Her goal is to see the NRA “shuttering its doors.”
“The NRA’s influence has been so powerful that the organization went unchecked for decades while top executives funneled millions into their own pockets,” said Attorney General James in a statement, according to the release. “The NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse, which is why, today, we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law.”
NRA President Carolyn Meadows released a statement about the suit, saying, “This was a baseless, premeditated attack on our organization and the Second Amendment freedoms it fights to defend.” Meadows knows exactly what is going on here: “You could have set your watch by it: the investigation was going to reach its crescendo as we move into the 2020 election cycle. It’s a transparent attempt to score political points and attack the leading voice in opposition to the leftist agenda.”
