NRA Executive Wayne LaPierre treated his niece and her daughter to private jet rides — on his organization’s dime.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, the LaPierres spent many thousands of the NRA’s dollars to ferry niece Colleen Sterner and her daughter to and from central Nebraska. Sterner is reportedly a low-level NRA employee.
It’s not the first time LaPierre has put NRA money to questionable use — he was at one time angling to get the group to fund his $6 million mansion in Texas.
New York Attorney General Letitia James has been investigating his expenses, in relation to the NRA’s long-held nonprofit status. The NRA’s nonprofit charter is registered in New York state.
