NRA sues longtime ad agency over requests for bill details

Associated Press |

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The National Rifle Association is suing its longtime ad agency over accusations the company has withheld crucial financial details in its billing.

The lawsuit filed Friday in Alexandria, Virginia, says Oklahoma City-based Ackerman McQueen is contractually bound to show documentation on its bills to the NRA. But the NRA says the firm has only partly complied or "baldly ignored" requests for more information.

The lawsuit says that in 2017 the NRA paid Ackerman McQueen and a subsidiary more than $40 million.

A phone message left with Ackerman McQueen and an email for media inquiries were not immediately returned Monday.

Ackerman McQueen and the NRA have worked together since the 1980s. The company runs NRATV, which livestreams gun rights commentary and advocacy for the NRA.
