Today, yes there would have been a a hundred plaintiff lawyers.
If you were accused by your neighbor of having sexual contact with his 9 yr old son would you fight to save your reputation or would you pay them a few thousands to just shut up?
I might be persuaded to do a settlement in cases of contract disputes or property claims but never would I okay a settlement of being accused of something so damming to my character. Just saying.
If I'm not mistaken, cain's offer is to pay anyone who accuses him of sexual harrassment $999,000 to shut up.

I once was the investigating officer on a sexual harassment claim. a couple of female soldiers accused their SGT of giving them crappy duty assignments because they wouldn't date him. My investigation revealed that these two idiots were just lazy, worthless POS that NOBODY on post wanted working for them, so their SGT was doing the best he could to find any assignment that would take them. They turned around and filed an EO complaint against me, claiming that the only reason I ruled in their SGT's favor was because they were black. I had been going to let the whole thing drop...but when they tried to be little bitches about it, I simply took their sworn statements and charged them both with violating article 107 of the UCMJ (filing a false official statement/report). They both were reduced one pay grade in rank, given 45 days additional duty and fined half a month's pay for two months. I made it a point every evening to drive by the warehouse where they were scraping old paint off the walls and wave to them.

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.
