BREAKING: @NRA Board candidate, "I am calling for Wayne LaPierre and those Board Members [those sitting on the Finance and Audit Committees] to tender their resignations. The very future of the organization depends on the ship being righted." 

*Already netting over $1.4M a year, Wayne’s golden parachute ensures he will continue to be paid as a speaker and consultant for the @NRA at the full base salary he is currently receiving. Which raises a pressing question, how much will his replacement be paid?"

" is NRA going to afford to pay it? Does it come from the constant requests for $20 donations from members? ...given the NRA has nearly exhausted its $25M credit line, liquidated $2M, borrowed $4M from officers’ life insurance policies and $5M from the NRA Foundation?"
