Turmoil continues at the National Rifle Association (NRA) after the far-right political organization was caught spending $274,695.03 at a high-end fashion boutique on clothing for CEO Wayne LaPierre.

A leaked memo from the NRA’s chief financial officer, William Winkler, asks LaPierre for “immediate attention.”

“During the recent audit sequence, specifically with FRA, transactions with related parties were discussed,” Winkler wrote. “We realized during these discussions that we need to address your wardrobe you required us to provide, specifically, purchases at the Zegna store in Beverly Hills, CA.”

Ermenegildo Zegna, the luxury Italian clothing boutique, is located on Rodeo Drive.

“Due to the substantial nature of the total ($274,695.03), we should address these items immediately,” the April 22 memo said.

An attachment showed an itemized list, covering the period from April 2004 to September 2015.

The smallest purchase was for $205 in 2014, the largest was for $39,435 in 2004. The list includes nine entries larger than $10,000.
