NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre under investigation by IRS for possible tax fraud


It has also been reported that LaPierre took more than eight trips to the Bahamas since 2015 by private air charter, bringing his family members along with him. The trip reportedly generated a price tag of $500,000.

To make matters worse, recent releases of the Attorney General’s 164-page report on illicit activity show that LaPierre spent millions of dollars of NRA funds on annual basis for his own security and received roughly $1.2 million in expense reimbursements.

In 2018, Lapierre’s pay rose by a staggering 55% to $2.2 million, which James alleged is grossly inflated beyond standard practices.

LaPierre defended himself against the attacks, saying that the NRA is “well governed, financially solvent, and committed to good governance. We’re ready for the fight. Bring it on.”
