At first I thought, another pissed off woman looking for money and making it harder for real abuse victims to come forward. Then I started actively following the story.
Looking at the big picture, when it comes to false allegations, statistics show that typically only 2% of them are false. Also it is common when a rape victim comes forward, for them to request if other people believe they are a victim to come forward also. This is especially true in cases where the accused is a famous person such as the Sandusky case or the Stephan Collins case. So multiple victims coming forward after a fist victim does is not uncommon.
With that said, I will not assume all of the women are out for money. It may be the only thing they can get out of this with it being so many years out though. It's better to get a "guilty" type verdict in civil court, than in no court. Since none of us have 100% of the facts the only assumptions we can make are based on statistics and previous cases. That leads me to believe there is some truth to the issue. There are close to 20 women involved in this. I doubt they are all lying.
