Among the NRA's assets are statues and paintings of its former president Charlton Heston worth nearly six figures, a Range Rover for the group's treasurer, and a prepayment to a private jet company. The group also listed liabilities including millions in disputed tax payments to the IRS, millions owed to fundraising companies, and hundreds of thousands owed to lawyers. Overall, the group has roughly $245 million in assets while owing about $112 million in liabilities.
Because every non-profit needs statues and paintings of a former organization president worth over $100,000, Range Rovers and private jets on standby....you know...for fundraising purposes.Some of those details include a 2018 Range Rover Sport among the group's 71-vehicle fleet, an $80,000 statue of former NRA president Charlton Heston as well as a $15,000 painting of him, and a $20,000 prepayment to Corporate America Aviation, which offers "discrete private transportation services" via private jet. The NRA filing said the group has over 1,000 creditors with claims ranging from a few dollars to a few million.
I'm sure there's a very logical explanation (to the directors and VP's) for this....The NRA also reported a $180,000 claim from a company called Wayne LaPierre Expense Reports Reserve, which operates out of the group's Virginia headquarters. It is not clear what the claim is for. The NRA did not respond to a request for details on it.
What the...??? $12 Million to Brewer in 90 days?Those claims are on top of the more than $12 million the NRA reported paying its top outside counsel Bill Brewer in the 90 days before filing. Dell'Aquila took special exception to Brewer's fees and said they were proof of continued mismanagement. He pointed to a recent failed attempt by Brewer to combine the various lawsuits the NRA is involved in.
Of course.....NRA declined to comment on much of the spending contained in the document, but defended its legal strategy and relationship with Brewer. Charles L. Cotton, chairman of the group's Audit Committee, said Brewer's contributions have helped to consolidate the group's legal expenses and will benefit members in the long term.
"I, and all the officers, fully support the work the firm is doing, the results achieved, and the value of its services," Cotton said. "This relationship has been reviewed, vetted and approved."
It's almost like the leadership of the NRA is trying to bring about its demise.
