In a comment on an earlier post, I had to admit I did not know how it was done.
I use to read The Washington Post regularly. Since our government buys copies and makes them available for nothing (Your taxpayer dollars at work.), it gave me something to read at lunch. Eventually, I stopped. The paper is a Liberal Democrat rag. What is the point of filling your head with stuff that is not true?
Did The Washington Post make up the story? No. They are more clever than that. They obviously invited some women to make up stories. Then they investigated them to make certain the stories could withstand inspection. How do they find such women? I don’t know. I don’t run with a crowd like that.
However, it appears someone has figured it out.
A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 presidential race, according to documents and interviews.
California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.
The women’s accounts were chronicled in contemporaneous contractual documents, emails and text messages reviewed by The Hill, including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were contacted during the effort.

It is not always obvious who is the victim and who is being mean.
