"Here's the specs. The yacht is called illusions at first was I thought it was called the illusion or illusions. It's just called illusions talking heads. It's one hundred and eight feet long. It has a false staff also chef. It has four state rooms I think stay room in this context means bedroom. But I'm not sure whatever they are. Whatever state rooms are illusions has four of them. Illusions is a big enough boat that it comes with other boats and vehicles that ride on top of it. It comes with two jet skis and sixteen foot long jetboat. It's boat that comes with the boat. I do not know my way around a yacht. I do own a row boat but I don't know anything about you. Know the makings of a good state room if I laid down in one for a nautical nap. But I'll tell you for news purposes. You should know that boats that make the news they tend to have a paper trail online, and so I think this might be the boat in question. This might be illusions when you google illusions yacht at least this is the bad boy that pops up and it does have the the hike embedded jet skis and the vote and the fancy bedrooms and all the rest of it. The reason I went on a very pleasurable Internet. Deep dive for this today. Is that some good ship illusions some yacht of that name. has now been cited as evidence in a long long long long list of allegations of fraud and multimillion dollar self-dealing at the NRA at the national, Rifle Association in a lawsuit that was filed today by New York Attorney. General Letitia James The NRA as an organization is chartered in New York. It has been chartered in New York for well over one hundred years. As a New York institution as a New York charitable institution, it has to follow the rules and laws for nonprofits operating in New York. And according to the Attorney General's lawsuit, the longtime president of the NRA Wayne Lapierre often stayed on the illusions yacht without paying for it. Those trips were present from one of the NRA's vendors with Mr Lapierre getting the US you know the chef and the jet skis and presumably all four state rooms for free. What he didn't do was disclose his acceptance of what The New York ag alleges was this very, very expensive gift on the NRA's financial disclosures in that is something that is required by New York state. Law. From the lawsuit quote Mr Peres testimony to the attorney general he said that the reason he failed to disclose the use of the was for security reasons and because he considered the to have been used for legitimate. A legitimate business per best. But wait there's more according to the New York Attorney General Wayne Lapierre spent five hundred thousand dollars of the NRA's money. That's NRA donors right are members providing money to the NRA for its purpose is a nonprofit instead. Up here is taking a half million dollars of that money to spend specifically on private airplane flights to the Bahamas and back for his family at least eight times over just the last three years. The Attorney General says he spent more than thirteen million dollars of the NRA's money on a private travel consultant arranging additional private flights in luxury cars for him and his family. Over the last six years there was also at least one African Safari for Wayne Lapierre and his wife which the says they improperly accepted from another NRA vendor. The AG. Ticks off lots of fancy Christmas gifts for law peers, friends, and family and golf club membership fees and a twelve thousand dollars hotel bill at the four seasons not for weighing up here but for his niece. Over the course of four years, the lawsuit alleges that Wayne Lapierre was reimbursed for more than a million dollars worth of personal expenses straight out of the NRA's coffers. So. Your uncle with the NRA sticker on the back of his pickup. decided to put up there because it shows that he's an NRA member do-or-die he's been dutifully giving them their money. He's been like putting. Lapierre's niece up in the four seasons and flying Wayne in his family back and forth at the Bahamas. That membership money's been going to. The lawsuit filed today is over one hundred, fifty pages. The New York Attorney General Letitia James sets out in fairly stunning detail her case for how the president of the NRA and several of his top lieutenants drained more than sixty four, million dollars out of the NRA for their own personal gain over a very short period of time just over a period of a few years.

Brady: Spinning the QB Carousel
"Brady. And I'll start with this one I just. I would be stunned if he ends up anywhere else. So I'm going to say the CAROUSEL stops and he sticks rate where he is even if he also moved his house and headed out of state. He's not long for New England either way but for another year especially if they end up ponying up phoning up to thirty million or whatever and again the Patriots end it also gives them the opportunity like the colts to draft a quarterback and start developing someone this time though for real. It didn't work out Jimmy G. Because Brady just kept playing but this time they actually would be grooming a young kid for the future Brady stays annoying on who disagrees as who agrees Wi with you hundred percent. Think He. I think he wants to be wanted in. This process might address some of that and then have New England come out in a total pantomine show and say yes. We're going to pay you a a lot. Yes you know. The quote was weapons ad he wants stuff added around him. He doesn't want to be in last year's offense. I think all that New England is the best situation for him for him to seamlessly. Leslie not start over with a new playbook work with Josh mcdaniels and hope that you get it right. Probably the best for the Patriots. Are they really going to do better than him. I think it'd be difficult. I don't buy the talk that he's GonNa the idea that he could make a free agency and this has been on our network to and see what he's worth and then come back. I mean if you're talking about I want more weapons. And he wants the team around him to be good if he gets the the free agency and comes back they have to pay. Whatever Tom Brady is gonNA cost plus thirteen and a half million in dead cap money it makes no sense? I just can't see bill belichick operating like that. I I think the Patriots at some point. We'll have to be. We'll have to say if you reach free agency like we're moving on. They either get the deal done before free agency Z.. Starts or not because otherwise it makes no sense to bring him back plus thirteen million dollars of fake money He Lord knows knows he's earned the benefit of the doubt but I'm still floored by how much benefit the Dow. He's getting compared to other quarters. I agree and people keep mentioning the titans and if here the titans why in the world you've got Ryan Tannehill who you're probably going to keep. Who can escape pressure? Athletic and can hit passes down the field. And you're going to move on from him for the Tom Brady. Who played in two thousand nineteen? I don't see that only the only issue there is that any of the thirty one other owners would would sign up for scenarios like that many cases where Tom Brady changes everything. People think about your team for the next year from a coach angle. I do under like if the this is one where the insiders don't have a good read on it kind of like Peyton manning back in the day because it's such a big deal but if you believe that the insiders had a read on it really feels it's just chargers or patriots that there that there's not gonna be the level of interest by any other team and even that the chargers feel like it pretty big underdog in that scenario

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to 'step back' from senior royals
"We've got huge news. News coming from the Royal Family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are stepping back from their duties within the monarchy. Yeah instead of Brexit. This is MEG's is it. This is something we've never ever seen before in our lifetime. I mean yes only time. I can see true Maggie. See I I take such a historic at global view. I'm like quantum leap of gossip. I go to other times but Prince Korean Meghan Markle have basically quit the royal family. There was a report out in the Sun. That said That they were going going to be in talks in the coming days with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles about maybe taking a step back maybe even relinquishing their titles. But later the same day that the report came out they just popped it on instagram. That they're out. They broke broke up with the queen what they posted on instagram from their official Duke and Duchess of Sussex Account after many months of reflection and internal discussions as we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as senior members of the Royal Family and work to to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty the Queen Financially Independent are going to start acting again. Maybe I mean I mean. Prince Harry got thirteen million dollars When he turned thirty from a from a trust so he and his his brother Prince William both got thirteen million dollars so at least he has that in the bank but there are some questions about if they're going to be living in North America And in the UK you know will they still need a full security detail. WHO's GonNa pay for that? WHO's GonNa pay for this life in both places so now they have a family? And you know so I think there are a lot of questions about whether UK tax payers are still going to have to pick up the TAB for any elements of their life or they're just going fully rogue. There are so many questions and it sounds like even the Queen has questions because a few hours after after they released this break-up statements The Palace released one. That's discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire. Take a different approach but these are complicated issues. That will take time to work through. That's a very much like remember. I'm the Queen. I am your grandmother and I will tell you what's up. The writing was on the wall. I mean this is pretty extreme. But you know Harry and Meghan didn't spend Christmas with the royal family. They spend it with her mom right then. They spent six weeks in Canada and then of course there was all the negative press surrounding her. Which Harry fell was unfair? It caused this very testy relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the press in the UK and it. I guess it was all leading up to this ultimately walking away from the royal family. I guess you figure. Maybe he's thinking. Hey you know you guys treated my mom like crap. I'm I'm not really in line to be King of England. He's like pretty far removed from thrown in in lineage. And he's like what do I need this for. I've got my thirteen million in and I'm good amount and something else you've been reporting on. Is this alleged. Feud between Prince Harry and Prince William you know for a while there. We were calling William Kate Harry and Meghan the Fab four and they look so great when they stepped out together and so happy and you know in recent months. It's been all that other not getting along along. And we just published a story that a friend of Prince Harry and Prince William was on television talking about how the rift is very real and and it's still ongoing and I can only imagine how it's escalated. Now that Meghan Harrier kind of like you guys can handle it from here. We are good it also be interesting to see where they wind up in North America because obviously they have this Canadian connection They could have been Canada which just seems also like a little boring for you. You know some royals. I mean. She shot her. TV show suits in Canada. So you know I guess she could get some acting work still up there when Harry could become like a manager of a Tim Hortons but you know the other thing that could make sense since they left the door open to North America were to do if they're doing a full Lebron and they go to like La as well. I mean the sky's the limit if they go to la they could just take over the town she could relaunch the tag her blog her lifestyle blog. Remember that named after a low. Yeah that's a great idea. Yeah when she was on suits she was making four hundred fifty thousand dollars a year and I was on a USA cable. Show so I mean she does have the potential. I guess if she wanted to go back to acting with her new fame theme I mean I don't know she could do bigger projects than cable shows and probably make quite a bit of

How NBA executive Jeff David stole $13 million from the Sacramento Kings
"They were switching gears doors has gone off to live it up in La hopefully and in the door in her chair because we just had to do. Hi this is Kevin Arnovitz. Who just wrote a riveting piece that was really just like a movie about Jeff David a former kings chief revenue officer. That's right and former heat but didn't really get started at the heat. Who told how much money thirteen million dollars thirteen million dollars? And how did he do it. Wow it funny story so sponsorships it's like we all we talk about front office people. We talk about the basketball ops people a lot here. There's this entire parallel universe over in in every NBA team. Which is the business ops people? These are the people that often the basketball people don't like but that's neither here nor there but so he was in charge of sponsorship ownership so all that stuff right like the names that are on the arena that sideline score table advertising. You see he was in charge of selling all that stuff and the the way he did it is is golden one. We know the Golden One Center there might even be playoff game sometimes sooner the golden one center I if I if the kings were fortunate and He put together that deal. He also put together the deal for their training facility which is The Kaiser Permanente trail all these teams have liked sponsors for their training facilities and in the process of putting together the big title sponsorship or the naming rights sponsorship deal What he did was he took a little for himself? He After they came to a twenty year one hundred and ten million dollar agreement with Golden. One Sometime I'm after. Finalizing the deal while the kings were still putting the last touches on their arena He went back to golden one and said. Hey you know it had previous discussions about maybe you give us more money up front expensive arena. We're building Would you still consider that one who was so thrilled. And then golden one. It's not American. Airlines is not Toyota. I mean the the big deal for a credit union to have sponsorship on an arena on an NBA arena. They said sure we can get nine million dollars absolutely. And so what Jeff David did was he created a separate entity that sounds just like the Sacramento Kings. It's called Sacramento sports partner reasonable. I believe it. Yeah they all have these subsidiaries. It's for some money and golden one thinking they were You know giving an advanced to the kings they can help finish the arena instead paid paid nine million dollars to an entity that was owned by this guy. He did it again in a somewhat. Different fashion with Kaiser Permanente saying hey rather than give us these little cost of living or sort of inflationary increases in your annual payment for sponsorship every year. Just give us a lump sum. Now we'll do away with all that inflationary thing and that was four point four million dollars so thirteen point four boom done. It's just his money now Well not anymore So so you go. I don't WanNa spos- sorry because people people need to sit down it's a New Yorker story it's a New Yorker Crime Story. People need to sit down and readapt set aside however long it takes so you go through the process of the Kings catching him And the hero of that is an HR woman Whose name I'm Stacey something they say Weixin Who who does a lot of detective or can you tick tock through that in every discovery in the adrenaline going through? So you have the kings you have the sponsors who get duped loop. They don't talk to you for the story. Now you have the HR person does talk to you. I think You interviewed the Guy Himself prison. I I prefers prison interview vault not imprison before he goes to prison will be fly. He had to report in late August and I saw him in right after July. Four you have the most. Ah In ten years the one thing I remember from that story if I if I hope I remember more but if there is just one it will be the scene in his house when his family discovers what has happened in in particular his wife. Did you talk to her. I was able to talk to too many of the people in involvement that speak to the in laws Who Come to council and help them? When they realized that the life of this family is now falling apart right right and by the way still believing in Jeff David the man who I was GONNA ask you. They appear to still be married. No it's I think one of the things that I drew me to the story just kind of at the very the beginning is that I mean this is a guy who is maybe had some detractors and he had You know. He was sort of Bro in his in his personality. But a a guy who was by and large really well respected in the NBA. If you asked a bunch of NBA team CEO's Hey Gimme the shortlist of people who are going to be NBA team presidents residents in the next ten years. Give me the rising class. This guy's name would be on it right like They were both current and former kings employees. Or like you know you have to appreciate what a good wh- whoa. What a good force of energy he was in the office? I had one person. Tell me if you lined up a hundred kings employees in order of likelihood that they they would steal thirteen thirteen and a half million dollars from sponsors he would be at the very end of the
The Great NBA Heist: How One Man Stole Millions from the Sacramento Kings
"Fans are really familiar with the basketball side of an NBA team. You know the starting five. You probably do the general manager and the coach and then there's this parallel world in NBA Franchises. which is the business operations? Kevin Arnovitz writes about the NBA FOR ESPN NBA. Teams have senior vice president of human human resource and for the Sacramento Kings. That person is Stacey W- exit so August two thousand eighteen wags in his doing human resources stuff off for one. There's this document that executive who just left for the Miami Heat was supposed to leave behind schedule of commissions for sales reps but he forgotten to do so now she needed to dig into some files to find it so she opens up the file directory in it is a mess. She can't find in anything. There's no rhyme or reason dates or names of folders. She does find this one folder titled Turbo Tax. An inside is all kinds of just really weird stuff. There's a depreciation schedule for a golf cart in furniture at some beach house in southern California. None of this looks like anything anything that is Sacramento Kings business. And what's really weird is all of this stuff is associated with an entity. She has never heard of Wigs and looks over all this stuff and she just knows something here isn't right today the untold story of our high ranking. NBA Executive stole thirteen million dollars and almost got away with times. It's Tuesday November nineteenth this is espn presented by Dell small business. So Kevin You published your story today it starts with the Sacramento Kings Chief Revenue Officer. Who is this Guy Jeff? David is the chief Revenue Officer for the Sacramento Kings. And that's just a fancy name for the guy who deals with all the sponsorships right he's in charge of the naming rights to the arena. He's in charge of in arena. Sign Edge The practice facility sponsor and was is really well thought of in this space if you ask a bunch of business side people in the NBA. Hey you're the ten most likely people to become team presidents in the next ten years like Jeff Davids often on that list. What kind of guy was he? He was a California Bro. He was the consummate sales guy he would come into a Monday morning meeting and say let's close some phone numbers today in closing phone numbers. Jeff speak was let's close some seven-figure sponsorship deals was generally well liked as just in a abusive hug. It out kind of guy in the office. So it's an exciting time to be part of the Sacramento Kings. And he does something interesting he. He creates his own company Sacramento sports partners. Why does he do this? So we asked Jeff David what he says is that around around two thousand and eleven there was an NBA lockout and a lot of people. Really panic I mean the thing about a lockout is there's just not any revenue coming in everything's frozen and so I think a a lot of business affairs people in the NBA are just worried. Like what if I have to lose my job. Would I have to go do something else. So the Way Jeff David tells it is I created this thing because look I might need to do some consulting on the side. That's not what he does know. Jeff David starts to do something really interesting. Rather than billing sponsors answers that he gets to by signing edge in the arena through the traditional Sacramento Kings accounting he has them pay Sacramento sports partners. Which looks like if you're getting an invoice at this company that is just bought this linage? It seems perfectly appropriate. Seems like exactly the kind of entity you would pay if you're writing a check to the Sacramento Kings. UNBEKNOWNST to the company it's actually an entity owned by Jeff David that sounds like some subsidiary of the Sacramento Kings. How many retirement he did about three deals totaling a little around thirty thousand dollars to what happens next so it really starts ramping up? Two Thousand Fifteen. Two Thousand Sixteen in the Kings were moving from they're really old arena to this brand new sparkling downtown jewel box. He is the point person for the naming rights both for the Rena and the practice facility in the kings identify really David identifies to sponsors that are relatively local. One is golden one which is a credit union in California and the others. Kaiser Permanente healthcare provider Divider well-known in California kice negotiates a really good deal for both sides. I mean it's it's going to be one hundred ten million dollars over twenty years with golden old in one. They're going to have their name in lights. This is the biggest deal of Jeff. David's career and Kaiser Permanente is going to pay twenty eight million dollars over ten years to have their name on the practice facility ability. Everyone is thrilled is bosses are happy. The sponsors couldn't be happier especially golden one. Is this little credit union. They're gonNA have their name on an NBA arena. It's all really great. And then he gets creative. Has That for whatever reason David decides that he wants them for himself at a certain point. During that negotiation nation there was conversations golden one in the kings that look. If you guys ever need more cash up front were credit union. We can help. We can't keep cash on hand so whether it's finishing the arena or whatever we could possibly service Jeff David file that away and then in two thousand sixteen. After the deals completed he comes to golden one and says hey remember of those conversations. What if we did that would if you sent nine million dollars our way in an exchange will knock off some money off the later payments down in the deal? The old past two thousand twenty six down the road. Golden One couldn't be happier to help. They're thrilled with the partnership. And they wire nine million dollars to Sacramento remigio sports and then he does it again with another deal. Jeff David does something very similar with Kaiser Permanente the training facility naming sponsored Kaiser Permanente ten years twenty eight million dollars. It's now a lot of these deals. That teams do with these kinds of sponsors. They have what's called an escalator was just a fancy. See Way of saying that there's an inflationary adjustment each annual payment so jeff.
