Chris Hayes talked about this New York magazine article last night that theorizes that Trump got Playboy playmate Shera Bechard pregnant and used businessman Elliott Broidy to pay her $1.3 million in hush money.

The probable payoff for Broidy? Consulting contracts from the United Arab Emirates worth up to $600 million over five years. (Mother Jones' Kevin Drum concurs.)

I have a less scientific method. I went to Bechard's Twitter feed, which otherwise mostly features puppies and swimming pools, and found she also retweeted these:

Yep. Sounds like a Trump survivor.
