Al Gore is being accused of sexually assaulting an Oregon masseuse back in 2006 who claims the former vice president “groped me, grabbed me, engulfed me in embrace, tongue kissed me, massaged me [and] grabbed my breasts.” Which sounds like Al learned some lesson from his old boss (What? No cigar?) until you realize the police found no evidence and she’s hawking the story to the Enquirer. Via People:
The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office in Portland confirmed Wednesday that the woman reported unwanted sexual contact by Gore to police in 2006, and the prosecutor’s office was briefed by the Portland Police Bureau in late 2006 and January 2007.
“We were told the woman was not willing to be interviewed by the Portland Police Bureau and did not want a criminal investigation to proceed,” Multnomah County D.A. Michael Schrunk said. The woman was reportedly considering suing Gore before last month approaching the National Enquirer, asking for $1 million for her story.
The woman, who did not respond to several attempted follow-up interviews with police, revealed in the complaint that she grappled with her decision to come forward – even consulting with attorneys – but ultimately decided to do so to protect other women who may have experienced the same trauma.
She told detectives she only wanted “justice” and that her complaint was not an attempt to receive money.
You know when you don’t get to say this wasn’t about the money? Right after selling your story for $1 million to the National Enquirer. That’d be like me having sex with a woman then claiming I was just interested in her thoughts on curtains. On that note, I included the Portland Police’s new release which essentially points out this woman called them out of the blue this month to change her statement right before going to the media. I’m not saying this makes her accusations true or false because if Ben Roethlisberger has taught us anything, it’s that getting sexually assaulted by a famous person is the new winning the lottery. USA!
