The Wall Street Journal: Top GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy to end hush payments over affair

A top Republican fundraiser will stop making payments to a former mistress who signed a hush-money agreement that was negotiated last year by Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer.

Elliott Broidy, a Los Angeles venture capitalist and former Republican National Committee official, agreed to pay former Playboy centerfold Shera Bechard $1.6 million — in eight installments, beginning late last year — to keep quiet about her affair with the married donor, The Wall Street Journal reported in April.

Now Broidy, who worked on the RNC with Cohen, will withhold the third installment of $200,000 that was due Sunday, in response to an alleged breach of the nondisclosure agreement, according to Chris Clark, a lawyer for Broidy.
