Police Reopen Al Gore Sex Crime Investigation

Police in Portland announced Wednesday that they are reopening the investigation into allegations that Al Gore groped a masseuse in 2006, but did not say why. A massage therapist claimed that the former vice president had groped her and tried to have sex with her before she could get away during an appointment in an upscale hotel in Portland, where Gore was visiting to give a speech on climate change.

An attorney for the alleged victim reported the claims of sexual misconduct to police in 2006. Investigators made appointments to meet with the woman, but her attorney canceled all of them. In early 2009, the woman contacted police again. Police interviewed her, but said that the case at that time lacked enough evidence to further pursue it. The woman took her case to the National Enquirer and they recently ran a story detailing her claims. The woman says she has DNA evidence and video footage of the hotel room that could be used in the investigation.

 

Gore, 62, completely denies the claims as defamatory tabloid fodder. The Gore family spokeswoman says that he welcomes further investigation because it could only benefit him. The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize winner and his wife, Tipper, announced in early June that they were separating after 40 years of marriage.
