Monday is Oliver North's last day as president of the National Rifle Association, after an unusually public internal struggle evidently won by NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre. North announced Saturday he wouldn't seek the traditional second one-year term as president because the NRA board opposed him. Two days earlier, LaPierre had told the board that North tried to oust him by threatening to expose "a devastating account" of financial other alleged malfeasance.

North was absent from Saturday's meeting of NRA members, and near the end, "some members challenged efforts to adjourn and pushed to question the board about controversies involving its financial management, the relationship with its longtime public relations firm, and details of what North sought to raise about alleged misspending, sexual harassment, and other mismanagement," The Associated Press reports. Board members objected.
