New statement form Ackerman McQueen (the ad firm that ran NRATV) says the NRA appears to be trying to hurt "as many people as they can"

I'm, like, totally cool with that.

Anyone else have a problem with that?

No?
They certainly seem to be trying to stiff as many people as possible, I suspect their employees and pensioners will be next.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

If they have to spend their laundered Russian money on lawyers, they can't spend it on their candidates.

Is Wayne Lapierre going to have to buy his own clothes soon? That will be a real comeuppance. I'd prefer he and his cronies get jailed for charity fraud and tax evasion. Then he can have his clothes provided for free again.

Since it is DC, maybe they can get GIL to represent them, since he can still practice there, for the time being.

Another top NRA staffer departs amid upheaval
By ALEX ISENSTADT 07/17/2019 03:06 PM EDT

The turmoil at the National Rifle Association continues to build, with Jennifer Baker, the organization’s longtime director of public affairs, stepping down from her post.

Baker’s departure, which was confirmed by several people familiar with the matter, could further complicate the group’s ability to play in the 2020 election. She had been playing a key role in mapping out the NRA’s electoral strategy.

The move comes one month after Chris Cox, the NRA’s chief political architect, resigned. Cox had deep relationships with Republican political class, and with his exit many of the party’s top strategists have expressed concern that the organization will be severely hamstrung heading into the presidential election. The NRA plays a major role in turning out gun owners, and many in the party are worried that the group will be less effective in 2020.
