NRA sues longtime ad agency over requests for bill details

I was wondering when their relationship would sour \ https://wrex.com/category/2019/04/15...0UciJ9ExrvY9HE


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The National Rifle Association is suing its longtime ad agency over accusations the company has withheld crucial financial details in its billing.

The lawsuit filed Friday in Alexandria, Virginia, says Oklahoma City-based Ackerman McQueen is contractually bound to show documentation on its bills to the NRA. But the NRA says the firm has only partly complied or “baldly ignored” requests for more information.

The lawsuit says that in 2017 the NRA paid Ackerman McQueen and a subsidiary more than $40 million.

Ackerman McQueen said in a statement Monday that an NRA forensic auditing firm received every piece of information it requested during a three-week review.

Ackerman McQueen and the NRA have worked together since the 1980s. The company runs NRATV, which livestreams gun rights commentary and advocacy for the NRA.

Some sunshine here will do the organization a world of good. This is overdue and one of the areas that needs reform. More competition with other firms is needed too

Does this imply there are charges not accounted for, as in over billing?

I'd have to look at the complaint to know. I haven't been able to get a copy.The case is in state court and that is outside of my research plan.

40 million in 2017, and we still lost bump stocks. I could have done that for free.

And the 80s most prolific drug trafficker and murderer of Central American peasants Ollie North, the current el president of the NRA, has a sweetheart contract with the ad agency for a show they set him up with. Have to wonder if there may be a little DC two-stepping going on... he got away with it once bigly.

That might be a little more rhetorically persuasive if it was even remotely connected to reality.

Seems like a lot of the issue relates to NRAtv. A lot of money was spent, I dont think a lot I'd people saw it. All those angry Dana videos were particularly absurd.
