Sometimes it's better to pay to be rid of them and avoid the Big Bite down the road. Look at what happened to Roethlisburger. I don't want to open that whole can of worms and it's not the same as this, and I don't know if he's anything more than a Jerk -- but fighting these things gets out in the news and women out there will capitalize on a 'too much smoke to not be fire' allegation. Make no mistake some of them are good at it.
And they might luck out and have Inspector FFL draw the case.
