NRA’s Wayne LaPierre Concedes He Was Disciplined for ‘Excess Benefits’ on Second Day of Bankruptcy Testimony
"During his first day on the witness stand in a closely watched bankruptcy trial, National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre conceded Wednesday that he made a “mistake” by not disclosing his voyages on a Hollywood producer’s yacht on conflict-of-interest forms. The gun-group honcho also acknowledged on Thursday that he was disciplined for receiving “excess benefits.”
On the first day of his testimony, LaPierre faced questioning about his excursions on two yachts, the Illusions and the Grand Illusions; all-expense-paid hunting trips in Botswana and other exotic locales for him and his wife; a shopping spree at a Beverly Hills Zegna for Italian suits that ran close to $300,000.
