Wayne LaPierre needs to resign, NRA board member Allen West says

Stephen Dinan The Washington TimesMay 14, 2019

NRA board member and former Rep. Allen West said Tuesday and that he’s calling Wayne LaPierre, the gun group’s CEO, to step down.

Mr West’s stance marks one of the most prominent breaks for the National Rifle Association, which is already facing questions about its finances and which saw Oliver North abruptly resign as its president last month following a feud with Mr. LaPierre.

Mr. West, in a statement posted online, said he made his opposition known last month before the NRA’s meeting, where Mr. North quit and the board voted behind closed doors to elevate Carolyn D. Meadows to replace him, and to keep Mr. LaPierre on as executive vice president and CEO.
