Yesterday we broke the news that NRA board members asked for Wayne LaPierre’s resignation, and he refused. Later, we shared the letter he wrote in response, in which he effectively claimed that the NRA’s President as of a year ago, Lt. Colonel Oliver North, effectively extorted him in an attempt to force LaPierre’s resignation. Breaking just now: Mr. North has resigned as president.
It’s all over the news; Oliver North is out. Effectively resigned by choosing not to seek a second term. Looks like in this internal struggle, Wayne LaPierre still has weight in the NRA. Friends in high and/or low places, and he has won this fight.
Gosh, it was just a year ago when LaPierre said about North becoming NRA President, “This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association.” How things change.
More to come . . .
