NRA general counsel John Frazer just admitted during questioning that Wayne LaPierre's assistant diverted $40,000 from the NRA to pay for a wedding & other personal expenses. She was forced to pay the money back with interest but Frazer said he didn't know if she was disciplined.
The assistant's name is Millie Hallow. She has been LaPierre's assistant for many years. She also pled guilty under her maiden name to a felony for stealing $23,691 from the DC government when she worked on an art commission in the 1980s.…
She remains employed by the NRA.

NRA Assistant Diverted $40K to Pay For Wedding, Personal Expenses…
Wayne LaPierre's longtime assistant Millie Hallow "diverted" tens-of-thousands from the NRA to pay for her son's wedding, according to NRA general counsel John Frazer's testimony in today's bankruptcy hearing. He said she is still employed and it's unclear if she was disciplined.
She was forced to repay the money with interest but Frazer said he didn't know if she faced any discipline from her manager Wayne LaPierre. Hallow pled guilty to felony theft in 1984 after stealing more than $23,000 from a DC art commission she ran.…

The NRA bankruptcy trial is on its second day today. This part of the trial is about whether the case should be dismissed, a trustee should take over the group, or an independent examiner should be appointed to go through the group's finances.
The arguments in the case have been the same as before trial. The NYAG & Ackerman McQueen argues the bankruptcy was filed in bad faith and should be dismissed because they didn't tell their own board and general counsel beforehand. NYAG says bankruptcy is to avoid prosecution.
The NRA argues the NYAG is engaged in political persecution against them. They say the bankruptcy is necessary to avoid being dissolved and the board ratified the clause in LaPierre's contract empowering him to file bankruptcy and the board retroactively approved the bankruptcy.

It's possible I may have gone overboard...
Then again, it would be wrong to go to Texas and not eat an absolute ton of barbeque, right?
It's possible I may have gone overboard again...

In addition to everything else going on, we've had two federal appellate court gun rulings that are likely to end up before the Supreme Court in the past two days. This has been an incredibly busy week for gun politics.
First, the 9th Circuit essentially ruled the Second Amendment does not provide any right to carry a gun outside the home. That deepens the circuit split on that question while the Supreme Court is (literally today) considering taking a gun-carry case out of New York.
Then the 6th Circuit rules against the bump stock ban. That creates a new circuit split over the ban's constitutionality. And it's hard to see how that case doesn't also end up at the Supreme Court eventually.
