National Rifle Association board member Lt. Col. Allen West (ret.) called for the resignation of executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday after leaked memos revealed accusations of impropriety, including $275,000 spent on Italian suits and $265,000 spent on travel. The accusations were levied at him by former NRA president Oliver North and the gun-rights group’s largest media vendor.

“It has become very apparent that I need to speak out about what is happening at the National Rifle Association,” West said in a statement published on his website. “I am in my second term as a Board member, and I am deeply concerned about the actions and statements being made. The recent statements by Charles Cotton and Carolyn Meadows that are appearing in the Wall Street Journal, and now other news outlets, are outright lies. I have never been told, advised, informed or consulted about any of these details mentioned in the WSJ, and who knows how much more despicable spending of members’ money.”

The article goes on to state the following:

In a joint statement to the Washington Free Beacon from NRA president Carolyn Meadows, first vice president Charles Cotton, and second vice president Lt. Col. Willes Lee (ret.), the three defended LaPierre and accused West of making false statements about the way the board has operated.

“It is unfortunate that certain board members have resorted to making false and misleading public statements about proceedings of the NRA board of directors,” the joint statement said. “As those board members know, we are not at liberty to discuss the particulars of the board of directors meeting that occurred in executive session on April 29. However, every board member was afforded the opportunity to speak openly about any issues of concern to them. To suggest otherwise is dishonorable.”

    If The leaked documents are true I agree with West, however, it is concerning about the new norm, leaking confidential info to the public. Nothing is confidential anymore.
