New York Times published a story Sunday on the hundreds of thousands
of dollars being spent to support women willing to come forward with
sexual misconduct accusations against Donald Trump. The Times
reports that a group founded by David Brock secretly gave $200,000
to attorney Lisa Bloom while another progressive donor gave her
the same purpose.

nonprofit group founded by the Democratic activist David Brock,
which people familiar with the arrangements say secretly spent
$200,000 on an unsuccessful effort to bring forward accusations of
sexual misconduct against Mr. Trump before Election Day, is
considering creating a fund to encourage victims to bring forward
similar claims against Republican politicians…
Allred’s daughter, the lawyer Lisa Bloom, seized on the political
potency of sexual harassment charges against Mr. Trump not long

the attention it generated, several donors reached out to Ms.

Brock’s suite of groups, gave $500,000 to Ms. Bloom’s firm
for the last-ditch effort.
weeks ago the Hill reported that Lisa Bloom was negotiating
with an unnamed woman who claimed Trump had
made an “unsolicited advance” on her years earlier. Bloom initially

that week, according to the woman. The support was promised to be
tax-free and also included changing her identity and relocating,
according to documents and interviews.
unnamed woman finally requested a payment of $2 million. Bloom says
she rejected that request but the Hill reported Bloom did fly from
California to make a last-ditch offer of $750,000 just two days
before the election. That amount matches roughly with the amount of
money the New York Times reports was offered by the two donors, i.e.
$700,000. But the unnamed accuser never did come forward.
Another accuser who did come forward, Jill Harth, admits that donors
