NRA money flowed to board members amid allegedly lavish spending

• by Beth Reinhard, Katie Ze

Another board member, a writer in New Mexico, collected more than $US28,000 for articles in NRA publications. Yet another board member sold ammunition from his private company to the NRA for an undisclosed sum.

The NRA, which has been rocked by allegations of exorbitant spending by top executives, also directed money in recent years to members of its board - the very people tasked with overseeing the organisation's finances.

In all, 18 members of the NRA's 76-member board, who are not paid as directors, collected money from the group in the past three years, according to tax filings, state charitable reports and NRA correspondence reviewed by The Washington Post.
