The great American past time, scandal, still pays and pays well.
Take for example Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of man-slaughtering Michael Jackson. Murray apparently took in $300,000.00 to tell his story,
The Conrad Murray documentary Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship is set to air tonight on MSNBC. Murray was allegedly paid $300,000 by NBCU to appear in the film. According to Radar Online, none of that money will go to Murray himself. Most of it is for his lawyers and some will go to his girlfriend.

Karen Kraushaar and Sharon Bialek, and perhaps others, are on the sidelines for the moment. They want to host a “joint press conference” of Herman Cain’s accusers so that they can present what they call their “Body of Evidence” about allegations of Cain’s sexual misconduct. But, they don’t want to meet the press now.

After all it will take a boat load of money to pay their lawyer bills if they get sued!

Conrad Murray’s story fetched $300,000.00. I don’t even want to speculate how many more zeros they could get especially if there are on the stage together when they tell their stories again
Of course, they may not want any money at all. That’s what they have said so far.
They simply may want another chance to fullfill what they feel is their public duty to present their stories again to the American people.
Maybe America will listen the next time around, and knock Herman Cain out of the GOP nomination sweepstakes for President.
Who knows? We’ll wait and see!
