Anti-gun New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) has filed a lawsuit that aims to dissolve the National Rifle Association, alleging that the group violated state law governing non-profit organizations. The state civil suit alleges that the NRA instituted “a culture of self-dealing, mismanagement and negligent oversight,” and accuses CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, former CFO Woody Phillips, former chief of staff Joshua Powell, and general counsel John Frazer of financial misconduct, claiming that they cost the organization more than $64 million over a 3-year period.
The NRA has denied all of James’ allegations and is counter-suing the New York attorney general’s office, alleging that James’ lawsuit was politically motivated, rather than fueled by any “sincere belief” that the NRA was breaking the law.
On the same day, Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine (D) filed a civil suit against the NRA Foundation, a charitable, non-political, arm of the organization dedicated to provide programs and ranges for firearm safety, marksmanship and hunting safety, accusing it of diverting funds to the NRA itself to help pay for lavish spending by its top executives.
