The Provocation: Cain Settlement Money Makes a Mockery of First Amendment#.TrGMNUdu3W4.facebook#.TrGMNUdu3W4.facebook
Money IS a huge factor here. If you don't want to be bound by a contract (even one requiring you to remain silent on a matter), then don't sign the contract and DO NOT take the money. The victim's acceptance of the money is JUST AS UNETHICAL as the offender's offering of this money. this case has nothing to do with ANY amendment. it has to do with people's choices.
