OKLAHOMA CITY – 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.

Ackerman McQueen said in a statement Monday that an NRA forensic auditing firm received every piece of information it requested during a three-week review.

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.
