Extortion?

I was just wondering about extortion. On the blog, Mommy writes, http://deirdremundy.blogspot.com/ some one has posted a comment that one of Maciel's sons seemed extortion "ish" when he asked the Legion for twenty-six million dollars, on account of being abused by Maciel, sexually, for years. Twenty six million dollars is an astronomical sum of money, unthinkable really. What everyone is wondering is, "is this real, did Maciel really rape his own sons"? This does seem a little fantastical, but this saga just keep getting weirder and weirder, so who knows. It does seem a little weird though, that this young man would just take this money to keep quiet. Is that because he doesn't want to have to testify in court? Or is it because he is an extraordinary liar who feels that he may have gotten in over his head? Are there any thougths out there on this topic?
