Three NRA board members offered their resignation on Thursday, alleging NRA leadership had “stonewalled” them in efforts to investigate accusations of financial impropriety.
Sean Maloney, Esther Schneider, and Timothy Knight announced they would leave the board in a letter to their fellow board members. The group said their faith in the NRA’s leadership had been “shattered.” The board members said they felt they had exhausted other avenues to investigate the claims of wrongdoing that have been made public over the last several months and resigning was the only option left.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Over the past several months, there have been numerous, highly-publicized allegations of impropriety leveled against the Association and certain members of its executive leadership team,” the three said in their letter. “In exercising our oversight responsibilities as Board Members, we have sought information and requested certain actions be taken with respect to these allegations, only to be rebuffed at every turn.”
“We had expected — or at least hoped — that the executive leadership team would recognize the seriousness of these allegations and work with us in a constructive and transparent manner to address our concerns and minimize any further harm to the Association,” they continued. “Instead, we have been stonewalled, accused of disloyalty, stripped of committee assignments and denied effective counsel necessary to properly discharge our responsibilities as Board members.”
