BREAKING: New NRA Financial Disclosure Reveals Massive Salary Increase for Wayne LaPierre
NEW YORK — Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action released the following statement on revelations contained within the NRA’s 2018 Form 990, as first reported by the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal:
“Congratulations to Wayne for his million dollar raise, which he secured while steering the NRA into multiple investigations and a snake’s nest of infighting. This eye-popping raise and other inside dealing is yet more evidence that the NRA is abandoning its members to focus on what is apparently its chief mission: enriching executives,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. “Given the multiple ongoing investigations, I’d bet that come 2020, the NRA won’t be writing political checks — they’ll be answering subpoenas.”
