The DC attorney general on Friday subpoenaed financial records from the National Rifle Association and the National Rifle Association Foundation, the latest headache for the embattled gun rights organization.

“The Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia has issued subpoenas to the National Rifle Association of America (NRA) and the NRA Foundation, Inc., as part of an investigation into whether these entities violated the District’s Nonprofit Act. We are seeking documents from these two nonprofits detailing, among other things, their financial records, payments to vendors, and payments to officers and directors” Attorney General Karl Racine said.

The Attorney General for the District of Columbia is “responsible for protecting charitable organizations and their assets,” the office’s website says.

The NRA faces a burgeoning scandal surrounding questionable spending practices first reported by The New Yorker and further detailed in an anonymous leak of internal documents.

The leaked documents, the authenticity of which ABC News has not been able to verify, included letters that appear to show former NRA President Lt. Col. Oliver North raised serious concerns with the organization’s audit committee about $24 million in legal fees paid to the firm of outside counsel William Brewer over the last year. North was recently ousted as president amid a dispute with NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre.

Those fees — estimated in one letter to cost the organization nearly $100,000 per day — “are draining NRA cash at mindboggling speed,” wrote North and NRA Vice President Richard Childress on April 18 as they urged the committee to authorize an independent review.

“Invoices of this size for 12 months of work appear to be excessive and pose an existential threat to the financial stability of the NRA,” the letter reads. “This is a fiscal emergency.”

The NRA claims there books are in order and they have nothing to hide. 

I think that is the same thing that Al Capone said right before he was arrested for tax evasion.

I have to say that there is not too much I love more than watching the NRA being slowly taken apart piece by piece.

    The NRA is not being taken apart by a long shot.

    But keep dreaming your daily fantasies and prediction which have been entertainingly off the rails lately.

    At the very least they’ll lose their tax exempt status.
