A massage therapist from Oregon has accused Al Gore of inappropriate sexual advances that allegedly took place in 2006 at Portland’s Hotel Lucia, referring to him as a “crazed sex poodle” in the process. The passage of time (it’s been nearly four years since the alleged incident) and Gore’s reputation as a rather staid man contrast with the lurid details … and together lead to a necessary revisiting of both the delicate issue of reluctance in the reporting of sexual assault and the possible fabrication of sexual assault allegations for specific (and usually financial) means.
From Oregon Live:
In her detailed Jan. 8, 2009, statement to a Portland sexual assault investigator, the woman said she was called to the hotel about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 24, 2006, to provide a massage for Gore, who was registered under the name “Mr. Stone.” Once inside his ninth-floor suite, she said he pushed her hand to his groin, fondled her buttocks and breasts, tongue-kissed her and threw her down on the bed as she tried to thwart his advances.
She also said Gore had finished a beer and opened a bottle of Grand Marnier while she was in the room.
While the Police Bureau considers it a closed case, it said it would reopen it if new evidence is received.
So a report was made in January of 2009, well over a year after the alleged incident, that Al Gore got drunk and tried to get up to some sexual hanky-panky with a massage therapist. And it’s just coming out now. Um … call me crazy, but — nevermind. Actually, the whole story’s crazy. You’ll see.
The woman told investigators that she informed two friends and kept the clothes she wore that night, including her black pants with stains on them. But Portland police didn’t contact any of the woman’s friends, obtain the potential evidence or interview anyone at the hotel, records show.
Not to make light, but was Al Gore trying to be Bill Clinton or something?
