Editor’s note: When you “round up” those gun and ammo purchases to give to the NRA, it isn’t all going to the Russian commies, you are putting “lipstick on a pig” as well….

The NRA spent tens of thousands of dollars bringing hair and makeup artists around the country for the wife of its CEO, two sources told The Daily Beast. The expenses–which included plane flights and luxury hotel stays for the stylists–are bound to fuel an already-raging debate over what some see as a spendthrift culture in the NRA’s upper echelons. The NRA, meanwhile, called it a “non-story,” and said their ex-ad firm was responsible for any such expenses.

Susan LaPierre, the wife of longtime NRA chief Wayne LaPierre, is one of the gun organization’s many public faces, and co-chairs its Women’s Leadership Forum. She often speaks at that group’s annual gatherings for female NRA supporters. And for years now, the NRA has paid for a makeup artist and a hair stylist, both based in Nashville and plugged in to the country music scene, to do LaPierre’s hair and make-up at events around the country, according to two sources familiar with the arrangements.

The NRA Women’s Leadership Forum hosts many of its events in major metropolitan areas where local hair and makeup talent abounds. But because of LaPierre’s preference for the Nashville artists, the gun group has paid a premium to fly them around the country, and put them up in style.

    • Good post, when will people learn to stop ‘following’. The answer it appears is never. The problem is ignorance over decades which helped make the hill, now some are finally realizing there’s no magic answer they complain ‘it’s such a big hill’ -as their continued ignorance piles yet more on the hill. Ants have more sense.
      You know what ants do, they try. A lot. I know this because they are living with me. Where I don’t want them. All the time. By the way boric powder or diatomaceous earth works fairly well, just haven’t gone under the abode yet to make it final, thus the ever-trying ants.
