New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a bombshell lawsuit in New York state court seeking to dissolve the National Rifle Association and alleging millions in donor funds were diverted under the leadership of the NRA president, Wayne LaPierre.
The NRA “operated as a breeding ground for greed, abuse and brazen illegality,” James said at a news conference.
“For these years of fraud and misconduct we are seeking an order to dissolve the NRA in its entirety.”
New York’s lawsuit, filed in state court in Manhattan, is a civil complaint, but James said the investigation was continuing and she expected criminal referrals would be made if warranted by evidence.
