Anne Laurie provided an overview of the turmoil at the death merchant lobbying organization in a thread last night. When we last left our zeros, LaPierre and North were pressuring each other to resign and accusing each other of corruption.
So, this happened today, and it looks like LaPierre won:
Here is Richard Childress reading a letter from Oliver North where he says he has been forced out of the NRA and then says the NRA has engaged in financial improprieties. pic.twitter.com/tAukwXVjZx

The talking ham-hock featured in the video reads a portion of North’s resignation letter, in which he (North) whines about leaving a lucrative gig at Fox News to become NRA president, lured there by Wayne LaPierre with an expressed offer of a double-dip salary from both the NRA and its ad agency.
LaPierre has been accusing North of double-dipping, and North is saying that double-dipping was the offer from LaPierre all along. The reporter then notes in a subsequent tweet:
It’s important to keep in mind in all this that North is not some truth teller about problems at the NRA. Both he and LaPierre are deeply corrupt and it should be no surprise that in the end they turned on each other.
Yep. It’s crooks, all the way down. I don’t know or particularly care what the real story is; I just hope that foul, blood-soaked bunch of sociopaths rip each other to pieces with their bare hands since no operational guns are allowed in the convention.
