I wanted to share an update with you about the situation involving the NRA and Grover Norquist. As you know, I have deep concerns with Mr. Norquist's role on the NRA Board of Directors. The NRA is in the process of putting together an independent investigation into the accusations that have surrounded Mr. Norquist for over a decade. They have assured me and their membership that this will not be a white wash, this will be a legitimate investigation. I believe they will do the right thing in turning over every stone and following the evidence wherever it takes them.
Now for the latest - while today it was announced that Mr. Norquist was duly re-elected to the NRA Board of Directors (1 of 76 Board Members), he voluntarily suspended his involvement with the NRA Board during the investigation. I will not try to ascribe any motives to this action other than to say kudos to Mr. Norquist for putting the 2nd amendment above himself.
Over the next number of months we at TheBlaze will continue to research and share what we find with our audience and, if they are interested, the NRA. Our goal is to find and share the facts and for you to make the determination. This is not a court of law, it is something stronger, the court of public opinion.
I commend, so far, all parties in how they are dealing with this and I pray, truly pray, that all parties continue acting in the best interest of our country.
