    Default Wayne LaPoop gets 57% pay raise

    NRA gives chief Wayne LaPierre 57% pay raise amid calls to step down



    Wayne LaPierre, the embattled chief executive of the National Rifle Association, banked a 57 percent pay hike last year — amid the din of calls for him to retire, a report said.

    The nonprofit group’s latest tax filings show LaPierre received a base salary of $1.3 million, plus a bonus of $455,000 and “other reportable compensation” of more than $427,000, The Washington Post reported Friday.

    La*Pierre, 70, also received an additional $73,793 in “retirement and other deferred compensation” and “nontaxable benefits” from the NRA and related entities, according to the filings.

    LaPierre’s pay increase was revealed at a time when the gun-rights group is facing increased scrutiny for a variety of financial dealings, including accusations it made unapproved payments of over a half-million dollars to celebrity board members Tom Selleck and Ted Nugent.

    The New York Department of Financial Services is investigating the NRA for its role in offering now-banned insurance products for gun owners in the state — and earning at least $14 million in the process.

    In addition, the group is in a legal dispute with its former president, Oliver North, who stepped down in April amid a financial scandal that led to its break with a longtime public relations firm, Ackerman McQueen, which operated NRATV.

    The organization is also under pressure to explain large payments to top executives, even as it has cut spending on firearms training and political activities and frozen pension benefits for employees.

    Kinda reminds me of one of those hokey mega churches where the pastor has a plane, mansions and expensive clothes.
    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    Rev. Wayne has a virtually unlimited expense account for which he answers only to , himself.
    There was an article about how the NRA pays ten$ of thousand$ for his wifes hairdresser and make-up artist to follow them around , staying in luxury hotel suites.

    And she's not all that good-looking either! Reminds me of Tammy Faye Baker.

    Is the term "pay raise" simply used to piss more people off?
    Because I didn't read anything about a pay raise. Bonuses? Yes, but that isn't a pay raise.
    Words mean things.

    can you name what he's done to deserve $882,000 in "bonuses" except cause chaos in the whole organization?

    But he didn't get a pay raise. Why lie? Because emotions sell.
