Rot from the top down

The National Rifle Association and its long-time ad agency came to a parting of the ways not so long ago. But there’s one more separation that needs to take place:

The leaders at the NRA and I’m talking about YOU, the board of directors, as well as the hired help, have spent years — decades — setting up a system which gives key people massive financial rewards. In my view, it’s at least malfeasance, and it might even be corruption.

Whether he directed it, was part of it, or just didn’t see what was happening, this all metastasized under the watch of Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. The buck stops there.

It has greatly jeopardized what most members believe should be the NRA’s core mission — protecting the Second Amendment and our gun rights. In fact, it looks as though the leadership has subverted the core mission into just making themselves rich.

In the world of corporate leadership, when the CEO has failed at this level it’s time for a new leader.

It can’t come a moment too soon.

    All instiitutions, regardless of the stated mission — ultimately devote themselves primarily to their own perpetuation.

    Wayne going down pleases me. A quarter million on clothes and he doesn’t even wear it particularly well.
