NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre's security measures evidently involved disguise. At a recent hearing in the gun group's Texas bankruptcy, Bill Winkler, CFO of the NRA's former public relations firm, recounted his shock at LaPierre's appearance at a 2018 meeting in Dallas. "When I sat down in the room I almost didn't recognize Wayne," Winkler said. "Whatever was going on with him, he was extremely scared about something, all the way to the point where he was in a disguise. He was saying he could not go to his house, he did not know where he was going to be safe." Winkler said the purchase of a home where LaPierre could live anonymously was discussed. The NRA would agree to pay $6.5 million to fund the proposed purchase, which was never finalized. Parts of a deposition given by Woody Phillips, the NRA's former CFO, were also read in court. Phillips, who like LaPierre is a defendant in New York Attorney General Letita James's suit against the gun group, helped engineer many of the financial arrangements under scrutiny in the case. While being deposed, Phillips repeatedly invoked his Fifth Amendment rights and declined to answer questions. Tomorrow, several dissident board members seeking independent investigation of James's accusations are to testify. The NRA will on Wednesday begin presenting its case for allowing the bankruptcy to proceed. — Will Van Sant, staff writer

Wayne embezzled money from gun lovers. He should be skeered.

Drain the NRA swamp. Erase the entire leadership team from top to bottom and start over.


Initial Success or Total Failure

If you're going to be stupid, you'd better be tough.

This is the only solution.

It applies to all of U.S. government, with more than 4 years in office, as well.

NRA board member decries organization's leadership. "I don't see anything there that's salvageable," said Owen 'Buz' Mills, a 12-year veteran of the board who owns an Arizona firearms training academy, during the NRA's bankruptcy trial. He spoke on behalf of dissident directors who want an independent investigator appointed to examine allegations of financial malfeasance by leadership. Mills described CEO Wayne LaPierre as a peerless fundraiser, but a "train wreck" of a manager and recalled telling board members at the NRA's 2019 annual meeting — as critical press revelations rocked the group — that the organization had brought trouble on itself. "The board had failed to provide adequate supervision and direction to our executive staff and consequently, we were out of control," Mills testified. He rejected claims by NRA attorneys that corrective action had been taken and said reform is needed. "I believe that the management is corrupted," Mills said, "and I believe that the board is corrupted." Also yesterday: Portions of a deposition given by NRA President Carolyn Meadows, a LaPierre ally, were read to the court. Meadows stated that in early 2019, after the NRA's general counsel advised her they could be subpoenaed, she destroyed notes and records from meetings with board members and employees. "Some I shredded," Meadows said, "some I actually burned." Today, the NRA, which is seeking to reorganize in Texas, will begin presenting its case for allowing the bankruptcy to proceed. — Will Van Sant, staff writer

Mr.Mills told the truth.

Wipe the board clean and start over.
