Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president and public face of the National Rifle Association, claims the organization’s board president, Oliver North, is trying to extort him into stepping down as the gun rights group faces infighting and turmoil in its ranks.

In a Thursday letter to NRA board members, LaPierre said North asked him to resign on Wednesday. North told LaPierre the NRA’s longtime advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen, planned to send a letter to the board through North that would be “bad for me” unless he resigned.

“Yesterday evening, I was forced to confront one of those defining choices — styled, in the parlance of extortionists — as an offer I couldn’t refuse…………I refused it.”
