    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.

    That's not strictly true. An organization with full power to work on one's behalf can enter into an agreement on your behalf. You don't have to sign a thing. You don't even have to approve of the agreement! An example would be if a police officer was accused of excessive force, and the city entered into a confidential agreement with the victim. The city signed the agreement, the city signed the check, but all parties, including the police officer and the police union, are part of the confidentiality agreement.

    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.

    I am not sure on this, but the impression I get from reading the one Politico article was not that they came forward but that this was discovered. The politico article I read stated that they had managed to discover the identity of the two women after they became aware of the story, which would suggest that the women did not come forward. However, again, I am making a supposition and if any one knows more please correct me.

    I'm sure coppers (your example) sign a subrogation agreement upon hire. Or, wait, I could imagine a corporation could insist on having an employee sign a subrogation agreement before entering into litigation like we're talking about here. IOW, "You want us to defend this on your behalf? Sign here." If Cain did that, you're right. He would not have had to sign a thing.

    With police officers... all municipal employees, actually, and most corporate employees... do not really have to sign a subrogation agreement. It's called "terms of employment", and is contained in the personnel manual of the organization. Employment is almost always contingent upon complying with terms of employment.

    Maybe because there wasn't anything to tell.

    Or she reached an agreement and kept her end.

    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.
