Former congressman and National Rifle Association board member retired Lt. Col. Allen West called on the gun rights group to replace longtime CEO Wayne LaPierre in a Tuesday blog post amid allegations of lavish spending and financial mismanagement.
West, who represented Florida in the House of Representatives from 2011 to 2013, wrote he was concerned over statements made by new NRA President Carolyn Meadows and others supporting LaPierre in a recent Wall Street Journal article about alleged financial impropriety.
“There is a cabal of cronyism operating within the NRA and that exists within the Board of Directors,” West wrote. “It must cease, and I do not care if I draw their angst. It sickens me to publicly make this statement, but I will not allow anyone to damage my honor, integrity, character, and reputation. Needless to say, there are those who have willingly done so to their own.”
The Journal article described a trove of leaked internal NRA documents posted anonymously online that detailed $542,000 that LaPierre allegedly billed to the group’s ad agency, Ackerman McQueen, for shopping in a Beverly Hills botique, travel, cars and other expenses. The travel allegedly included more than $200,000 in “Air Transportation” costs related to a two-week trip over Christmas to the Bahamas.
In his post, West said he was not “told, advised, informed or consulted” of the details mentioned in the story. Meadows said the board “is fully aware of these issues” and that “We have full confidence in Wayne LaPierre,” according to the Journal.

No blacks will buy that cap.  Look at the bill! It's all curved like normal people wear. The bill of the hat is supposed to be flat with a shiny goofy looking sticker in the middle of it.

No self respecting thug would be without his sticker!

Not seeing where it says what is claimed in the title. The "unable to exits" part.

Actual headline: NRA Board member calls on CEO LaPierre to resign amid spending allegations

So this financial crisis is nothing more than one guy allegedly embezzling money and it isn't over $1 million worth.

Such a sad attempt to tarnish such a wonderful organization.

So someone lied and embellished a title much like that person accuses others of doing.  Undecided

I cannot say this displeases me. The NRA, prior to the 1960s, was a wonderful organization. It had a 'Boy Scouts' attitude toward firearms. Now it is the spokes-organization of the gun manufacturers, putting sales over safety, and a lobbying element of the far Right.

That's true.  They were OK when they were more concerned about gun safety than gun sales

Before the 1960s, the sleazy idiots on the left weren't trying to ban or restrict our rights; now they are and we need the NRA to fight off those animals.  Do you not realize that powerful guns have been available to public long before the 1960s, and yet we somehow avoided the violence that fuels the left's insanity over guns? The left helped create the crisis with their moral relativism and their drive for government dependency. Guns are not the problem, just a tool utilized by the amoral thugs.

The NRA represents all of  the normal decent folks who resists the left's moral perversion.

Wow.

I think you should read up on the history of the NRA. For most of its existence, it was FOR gun control.

They bring in $367 million a year. Less than $1 million in fraud isn’t a financial crisis. Most people can deduce that without it being spelled out. Apparently you don’t meet that standard.
