Oliver North won’t serve second year as NRA president

National Rifle Association President Oliver North has lost his nomination for a second year as NRA president after the CEO alleged he tried to extort him.

North said Saturday in a letter read to NRA members at the nonprofit organization’s annual meeting in Indianapolis that he hasn’t been renominated for a second one-year term as president against his wishes.

CEO Wayne LaPierre had written a letter to the board Thursday accusing North of attempting to extort him and pressure him to resign from the nonprofit over alleged financial transgressions. Among the claims, North said that LaPierre had charged more than $200,000 in wardrobe expenses to a vendor.

Earlier in the week, North had also told the board’s executive committee allegations of hefty travel expenses charged to a vendor and sexual harassment allegations against a senior official, according to people familiar with the matter.
