A new exposé by The Washington Post reveals the National Rifle Association has directed vast sums of money to 18 people on its 76-member board over recent years. The beneficiaries include a former pro football player who was paid $400,000 for public outreach and training, while musician Ted Nugent received $50,000 for public appearances. Experts say the payments demonstrate a lack of oversight and possible conflicts of interest. The latest revelations come after New York Attorney General Letitia James launched a probe into the NRA’s tax-exempt status in April and Democratic lawmakers also weigh possible investigations into the group.
