    New York Attorney General Moves To Dissolve The NRA After Fraud Investigation

    the attorney general of new york took action today to dissolve the national rifle association, following an 18-month investigation that found evidence the powerful gun rights group is "fraught with fraud and abuse."

    attorney general letitia james claims in a lawsuit filed thursday that she found financial misconduct in the millions of dollars, and that it contributed to a loss of more than $64 million over a three year period.

    The suit alleges that top nra executives misused charitable funds for personal gain, awarded contracts to friends and family members, and provided contracts to former employees to ensure loyalty.

    Seeking to dissolve the nra is the most aggressive sanction james could have sought against the not-for-profit organization, which james has jurisdiction over because it is registered in new york. James has a wide range of authorities relating to nonprofits in the state, including the authority to force organizations to cease operations or dissolve. The nra is all but certain to contest it.

    They’d have to dissolve the Pentagon, the Treasury Department, the Senate and the White House.

    We all know the playbook on this one right?

    Every conservative will automatically reject this and call it fake or a witch hunt and an attack on their rights without ever caring about the charges made.

    I’m sure they’re waiting for their GOP talking points and marching orders via Fox’s prime time lineup right now.


    I’m sure they’re researching the NY attorney general now for any late library books or cutting class in high school so they can discredit him.



    Deny deny deny, pivot, attack, butwhatabout

    Lol

    Nah

    Planned parenthood helps a lot of women get the care they need that they can’t afford.

    Clinton foundation has been investigated ad nauseam and nothing ever found.

    All the investigations in deep red states and they haven’t found jack ****. Time to move on and stop acting like they’re doing what New York has found evidence of.

    They tried to run it like a church and this imbecile tried to be the pastor who dresses in expensive clothing and flies around private jets.

    Yea, I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    It could go in different directions. It could lead to something good. Start exposing corruption within the govt and other big organizations.

    It could lead to something bad. Constant legal bs clogging the system for partisan points.

    Par for the course would be the latter.
