As my father taught me, something is worth exactly what someone’s willing to pay for it. So there’s no question that NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre was worth $5,110,985 in 2015. For those who wish to examine Mr. LaPierre’s salary and retirement benefits on a return-on-investment basis, washingtpost.com has the numbers . . .
According to the tax filing, the NRA recorded a bump in total revenue in 2015 but a dip in contributions. The NRA brought in more than $336 million in total gross revenue in 2015, an increase of about $26 million from the year before. According to the filing, contributions to the NRA dropped to just under $95 million in 2015, down from $103 million in 2014.
So Mr. LaPierre’s 2015 compensation represents around 1.5 percent of the NRA’s 2015 gross revenue. After 36 years of employment. Is the NRA Veep a bargain or a fat cat?
