Sigh! The Hired Help Rules Supreme

The American Rifleman reported this a bit ago.

National Rifle Association Executive Vice President/CEO Wayne LaPierre was re-elected unanimously and unopposed by the NRA Board of Directors at their meeting in Indianapolis, Ind., April 29, 2019.

Carolyn Meadows was elected NRA President; Charles L. Cotton, First Vice President; and Willes Lee, Second Vice President.

Also retaining their offices are NRA Secretary/General Counsel John Frazer; and Craig Spray, Treasurer.

Chris W. Cox was re-appointed as Executive Director for the Institute for Legislative Action; and Joseph De Bergalis, Jr., Executive Director, General Operations.​

All NRA officers were elected unanimously and unopposed.

It was leaked to the New York Times' reporter Danny Hakim a few hours ago even though the NRA Board of Directors was still in Executive Session and no reporters or members were allowed in the room. Stephen Gutowski of the Washington Free Beacon has been reporting on the BOD meeting all day by Twitter and has been camped outside the door all day. I saw elsewhere on Twitter that Shannon Watts was reporting this even earlier but since she has me blocked I can't tell for sure.

I'm sure Carolyn Meadows is a very nice Southern lady who loves God, America, and the NRA. She is also 83 years old and has an ill husband (from what I've been told). Does anyone in their right mind think she'll be anything more than a figurehead that will do exactly what she is ordered to do by Wayne?

Unanimous? Really? Tell me another one. I guess if there weren't any NO votes and just a few loyalists voted YEA that is unanimous while the rest voted PRESENT. Even though a vote like this should not have been made in Executive Session under the rules, it is obvious that the hired help is running the show.

UPDATE: The timestamp on this Tweet by Shannon Watts was before the results of the vote were announced. Very curious.
