As the NRA’s former public relations and advertising firm, Ackerman-McQueen, had argued for a dismissal in the NRA’s bankruptcy with a trustee as an alternative, I reached out to them for a comment.
I spoke with Bill Power, Executive Vice President – Public Relations, of Ackerman McQueen. He noted that he had previously served at one time as the Director of Public Affairs for the NRA.
His verbatim official statement is:
This decision underscores the incompetence and failure of NRA leadership and its legal team. This is not the first case of a flawed NRA strategy to protect one top official, as this situation has increasingly disturbed NRA members.
