Best news ever!

A week before former National Rifle Association President Oliver North said he would not seek reelection after a failed attempt to oust CEO Wayne LaPierre, he warned the group that extraordinary legal fees threaten the future of the NRA.

A series of documents posted anonymously online and verified by both The Daily Beast and The Wall Street Journal show the inner machinations of a group plagued by deep financial troubles to the tune of $24 million.

In a letter North and NRA official Richard Childress sent to top NRA officials last month, North said he was “deeply concerned about the extraordinary legal fees the NRA has incurred” from attorney Bill Brewer.

“The amount appears to be approximately $24 million over a 13-month period,” the nine-page letter, which has been viewed by HuffPost, said. North said the gun group was burning nearly $100,000 every day, “seven days a week, every day of every month,” on paying the law firm.

“The Brewer invoices are draining NRA cash at a mindboggling speed,” the letter said.

LaPierre, meanwhile, billed the group’s ad agency Ackerman McQueen for more than half a million dollars over the years, letters show. His purchases included a $39,000 shopping spree at a Beverly Hills store.

Who would have thought that Oliver North would be the one, to tell the truth about the NRA?

That guy’s whole schtick was to lie about everything. 

I have to say that watching the NRA implode is almost as satisfying and watching Sarah Palin’s career get flushed down the karmic commode.

    “Trump showing his cronies, ‘Look, you take care of me, I’ll take care of you.’ I’m pretty sure Trump really has no idea exactly who Scooter Libby is or why he should care, but he understood enough for a small group of people, it was a very strong signal.””

    The former TV presenter was a recognizable face to many Afghans in Kabul. In a social media post last week, Mangal said she had received death threats, but did not share details.

    Members of Afghan civil society groups have called for a robust investigation into Mangal’s killing and want the government to provide better safety for journalists.

    Afghanistan was named the deadliest country for journalists in 2018 by Reporters Without Borders (RSF).
