Joe Biden’s lead in the polls had Democrats counting on a strategy of running out the clock until Election Day.
But those plans are now out the window.
And one surprise lawsuit could cost Joe Biden the election.
Radical Left New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association.
The Washington Post reports:
The chief executive of the National Rifle Association and several top lieutenants engaged in a decades-long pattern of fraud to raid the coffers of the powerful gun rights group for personal gain, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the New York attorney general, draining $64 million from the nonprofit in just three years.
In her lawsuit, Attorney General Letitia James called for the dissolution of the NRA and the removal of CEO Wayne LaPierre from the leadership post he has held for the past 39 years, saying he and others used the group’s funds to finance a luxury lifestyle.
She also asked a New York court to force LaPierre and three key deputies to repay NRA members for the ill-gotten money and inflated salaries that her investigation found they took.
In 2016, the NRA spent tens of millions of dollars to elect Donald Trump and pledged to spend up to $70 million in 2020.
James’ lawsuit is an attempt to silence and destroy one of the Left’s political opponents with less than 90 days until the Presidential election.
Democrats in Pennsylvania are worried this move will backfire and cost Biden the state.
POLITICO’s Holly Otterbain reported, “Some Pennsylvania Democratic elected officials are panicked about the NRA lawsuit’s effect on the presidential race. One told me it was an ‘October surprise’: ‘This is the equivalent of Alabama AG suing to dissolve Planned Parenthood for the left.’”
This lawsuit will surely push any gun owners that were on the fence away from Democrats.
The only question is how big will the backlash be?
