not saying it's the case in this instance.
but isn't it funny how in many of these cases the accusers suddenly catch a case of the conscience and just can't live with themselves if they don't clear the air and get the truth out....shortly after the settlement money runs out?
that's the trouble with paying hush money. sooner or later the money is going to run out and they are going to come back at you with their hand out for more. better to take your chances in court, if you are innocent, in many cases.
Michael Jackson paid that little kid's family $20 million in hush money and they still tried to use it against him in court.

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
That's a possibility that occurred to me. I can't even begin to imagine what I'd think if some lecherous creep from my past, who caused me to give up my job just to get away from him, was suddenly in contention for a position of national power, like president or supreme court justice. I don't think I'd have Anita Hill's courage, and be prepared to be publicly smeared for the rest of my life in order to let the nation know what kind of man they are dealing with, specifically because I've seen over my lifetime that the nation really doesn't care what kind of people they are dealing with. Character doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that they belong to the "correct" political party.
Thank you, Quazi!
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
