One thing I saw seemed to indicate that Wayne has been keeping a mistress at our expense.
Is that the "intern?"
There was a letter from Ackerman-McQueen published that was in response to the demands made in NRA’s lawsuit. In order to comply, they requested clarification on some of the items that NRA had been paying them for, one of which was the exact business relationship between NRA and some woman they had been asked to rent an apartment for.

It is probably not a good idea to declare war on one’s own pet PR firm.
too lazy to look. Does that woman have a name? Is the apartment in Kentucky or DC area?

Wow, a mistress? That's the classic "men in power too long thing" ain't it? Kings of old accumulating wives and concubines... Goes on today by different names and not quite as openly.

if this was a leftist organization LaPierre wouldn't be out of a job. They'd make him king for life.

I'm too lazy to look, too, but I did find this posted on another forum. Supposed to be the recipient of the apartment.

If I had access other people's money, I might be tempted to get myself an "intern", too.

Obviously If true, he needs to go. (Maybe anyway.) Still, I will wait to hear what is real and not. The first word is usually wrong and all that.

All WLP needed to do was let word get out that the mass mailings were really Ackerman-McQueen's idea all along, and the members would have burned down their headquarters for him.

if true and I have no reason to believe it isn't, it sure explains a LOT

money quote
Later that year, Wayne LaPierre began working for the NRA, as a lobbyist. LaPierre, a former Democratic legislative aide with little experience handling guns, was not obviously suited to a role as a firebrand. People who have spent time around him describe him as “mild,” “reserved,” “awkward,” and even “meek.” Still, he rose through the organization, and he built a close relationship with Ackerman.

Pete Brownell has reportedly resigned from the NRA Board of Directors

Also, reportedly NRA Foundation money has been going to an organization run by LaPierre's wife that (possibly among other things) houses illegal immigrant children. This is at Arfcom and reportedly NRA related threads have been being 'disappeared' there, so sorry if the link breaks. Link

Links disappearing and illegal shenanigans. So now it's a conspiracy? This just keeps getting better and better.
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.
