New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday that her office has filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association and its leadership, including Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, looking to dissolve the organization.
George Soros spent millions of dollars around the nation to elect state and local prosecutors as part of an on-going campaign to radically transform law enforcement in the United States and weaponize the law to use it against those who won’t go along with the radical-left manifesto.He’s enjoyed success at the county level in Virginia, in Chicago and at the state level in Missouri, New York and California. Jennifer Soros, daughter-in-law of hedge fund manager George Soros was a major donor to James.
Here’s the pay-off.
Another nail in the coffin of Democrat run New York. Cuomo is begging New Yorkers to come back. They’re not coming back.
New York Attorney General Letitia James files lawsuit to dissolve NRA
James said last year that an investigation of the NRA was underway, part of her campaign promise to dig into the group’s not-for-profit status.
By Erik Ortiz, NBC, Aug. 6, 2020:
New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday that she has filed a lawsuit against the National Rifle Association and four individuals, including longtime leader Wayne LaPierre, seeking to dissolve the gun rights advocacy group for “diverting charitable funds to support wasteful spending.”
James said the organization engaged in illegal conduct by diverting “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.”
“My office filed a lawsuit to dissolve the organization in its entirety,” she said at a news conference.
The state’s top prosecutor confirmed in April 2019 that an investigation of the NRA was underway, part of a campaign promise to dig into the group’s not-for-profit status if elected. James had issued subpoenas as part of the investigation, reportedly looking into its campaign finances, payments made to board members and tax compliance.
That same month, Oliver North, the retired U.S. Marine lieutenant colonel who became NRA president in 2018, stepped down from the role after alleging other leadership had engaged in financial improprieties.
His departure revealed a fractured organization and internal power struggle in which North and his supporters had reportedly tried to oust LaPierre, the NRA CEO and Executive Vice President who has led the organization of more than 5 million members since 1991.
LaPierre later accused North of trying to extort him. But the longtime public face of the NRA has also come under scrutiny from major donors worried about the group’s revenue and mounting legal troubles.
After learning of James’ probe last year, President Donald Trump defended the NRA, tweeting that the group was “under siege” by her and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, both Democrats, “who are illegally using the State’s legal apparatus to take down and destroy this very important organization, & others.”
