MANHATTAN, NEW YORK — NY AG Letitia James has made part of her national announcement and as expected it is quite spectacular. In her announcement, James confirmed the existence of a lawsuit against the NRA and Ackerman Mcqueen — two moves she now says will eventually lead to the dissolution of the National Rifle Association.

New York State alleges that the NRA ‘s LaPierre rightfully (along with at least two accomplices) abused their powers; diverted millions of dollars, avoid taxes, stole money from the NRA, and helped otherwise corrupt cronies pass their agendas without even as much of a blink of an eye.

James per her lawsuit has at least 18 courses of action against the NRA and LaPierre (and more may coming.). Some of them include: improper wage reporting, tax reporting, and more. According to officials, the NRA was secretly under investigation for at least 18 months prior to this announcement. Over the course of 3 years, LaPierre and his cronies helped the NRA lose upwards of $64m.

“The NRA’s influence has been so powerful that the organization went unchecked for decades while top executives funneled millions into their own pockets,” James said in a statement. “The NRA is fraught with fraud and abuse, which is why, today, we seek to dissolve the NRA, because no organization is above the law.”

Allegations against LaPierre

As it turns out, many of the fraudulent allegations against LaPierre that surfaced about a year ago are actually true. James alleges that her office managed to uncover documents that LaPierre floundered his way through the final months of his employment — but managed to still secure a $17m post employment contract. Furthermore, over the course of about 4 years he was reimbursed for expenses that otherwise wouldn’t of been extended to the tune of about $1.2m.

Allegations against Woody Phillips

It is further noted in the lawsuit that Phillips illegally lied on financial disclosure documents. By doing so, he managed to enrich himself and his girlfriend without anyone having actually detected the fraud ring. Two years after his tenure started in 2016, he received upwards of $1.8M in compensation through his phoney contract.

Allegations against Joshua Powell

James alleges that Joshua Powell helped use charitable partnerships and the like (and also a phoney package) to help secure a larger compensation. Over the course of three years, he managed to see his compensation jump from about $250,000 to more than $800,000 without board approval.
