Al Gore Accused of Sexual Misconduct, But No Charges Filed

The National Enquirer reported this week that a massage therapist accused Al Gore of sexual misconduct in 2006. No charges, however, were ever filed in the case. Portland police say that an attorney representing the masseuse called them with the report in late 2006, but the woman canceled appointments with investigators and did not want to make a statement or press charges. The police reports say that the case was closed because of the woman's refusal to report a crime or cooperate with investigators. She said she didn't want to talk with police immediately after the incident out of fear of "being made into a public spectacle."

In early 2009, the case was reopened when the masseuse contacted police. The Portland Police Department said that detectives interviewed her after the case was reopened, but determined that the allegations lacked sufficient evidence to back them up. A police spokeswoman said that the woman contacted them this month asking for her statement because she was taking her story to the media.

The woman has not been identified, but The National Enquirer reported she is 54 years old. The incident allegedly happened on October 24, 2006 when Gore was in the area for a talk on climate change. She alleges that Gore made repeated unwanted sexual advances toward her and tried to have sex with her during a massage session in a luxury hotel room.

A spokesperson for the family of the former vice president said that Gore had no comment. On June 1, Al and Tipper Gore announced that they are separating after 40 years of marriage.
