Holy Crap! Oregon Prosecutor Confirms National Enquirer Al Gore Sex Scandal

Posted on | June 23, 2010 | 20 Comments

This morning, I treated it as a joke, but it turns out to be a legit news story

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office confirmed today that a woman who alleged unwanted sexual contact by Al Gore reported it 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 District Attorney Michael Schrunk said, in a prepared statement.
Today, as the National Enquirer reported that it had interviewed a Portland masseuse who complained of unwanted sexual contact by the former vice president at the Hotel Lucia on Oct. 24, 2006, the district attorney’s office was notified that the Portland Police Bureau had conducted a further investigation of the allegation in 2009.

UPDATE: Steve Milloy:

The same day that Al Gore allegedly sexually attacked a masseuse in Portland, Oregon, he said the following at a presentation of his infamous slide show:
“[Global warming] will give us the chance to experience something few generations ever know – a sense of moral purpose.” [Source: The Columbian (Vancouver, WA), Oct. 25, 2006]

Milloy is the author of Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them.

UPDATE II: One of Instapundit’s readers: “Gore, according to the masseuse’s description, is not only deeply weird, but also a thug who committed a sexual assault upon that woman. As far as I am concerned, that is serious stuff.”

    Did the words “snow job” appear anywhere in the wire copy?

    Goodness, the entire Clinton administration is guilty of rape. The law dogs better keep a sharp eye on Rahm and Hillary.

  • JeffS

    This is flat out bizarre. Maybe Gore was fantasizing about Hillary, and got carried away?

    Statute of Limitations?

    Apparently not…

    ORS §131.125
    Rape in the 1st – 3rd degree – w/in six (6) years.

    But I have to say — this is particularly odd, coming out right now. Why not in 2006? Or even 2009? And why the National Enquirer? The last time they had a real story was John Edwards not-so-minor affair during his presidential campaign.

    And I ain’t no conspiracy freak, but Al Gore’s divorce was revealed as due to his out of wedlock wick dipping not all that long ago. Gorezilla used to be the High Holy Priest of Mother Gaia, beyond reproach, and worshiped by the MSM.

    Now his sordid personal life (apparently true, and certainly relevant given how he has been influencing environmental policies around the world) is being published everywhere.

    What gives? The MSM is too much in tune with the political hacks to go against them, even the tabloids. Has Gorezilla fallen out of favor with them? Or stepped on someone’s toes?

    OH, GOOD GRIEF: Al Gore implicated in sex assault on Portland masseuse.

    UPDATE: More on the case here. I’m underwhelmed, but if he were a Republican this would be a huge scandal and proof of the entire party’s hypocrisy on sexual morality or something.

    ANOTHER UPDATE: On Facebook: “He wanted her to warm his globe.”

    MORE: Reader Heather McFarlane writes: “You may be underwhelmed, but I am not. Gore, according to the masseus’s description, is not only deeply weird, but also a thug who committed a sexual assault upon that woman. As far as I am concerned, that is serious stuff.” If true. Stay tuned.

    Only fair you link to him occasionally…

    There are rumors Obama picked Petraeus to take him out of contention in 2012. I am not buying that. Petraeus is like Powell, I think he really does not want to run.

    But does Obama consider Gorecle a threat? Or perhaps Hillary does? I wouldn’t think so but hmmmmm.

    Comics who do Bill Clinton impressions are down on their knees giving thanks for this.

    I sense this story is not going to have a happy ending for Al Gore. Who goes down next, Lieberman?

  • Joe

    Maybe the next shoe to drop is Mac Daddy McCain getting inappropriate with Lindsay Grahamsty. Well we knew that already. To McCain’s credit, he hasn’t really been into that cross over lifestyle since he lost the election.

    Then again, Glenn Beck declares J.D. Hayworth D.O.A.

    That’s just gross.
