Oregon Live – June 23, 2010:

A Portland massage therapist gave local police a detailed statement last year alleging that former Vice President Al Gore groped her, kissed her and made unwanted sexual advances during a late-night massage session in October 2006 in a suite at the upscale Hotel Lucia.

“The case was not investigated any further because detectives concluded there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a prepared statement Wednesday, responding to inquiries from all over the world after the National Enquirer broke the story on its website.

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 called him a “crazed sex poodle” and tried to distract him, pointing out a box of Moonstruck chocolates on a nearby table. He went for the chocolates and then offered her some, cornering her, fondling her and shoving his tongue in her mouth to french kiss as he pressed against her.

She said he tried to pull her camisole strap down.

She said she told him to stop it. “I was distressed, shocked and terrified.”

She said she was intimidated by his physical size, calling him “rotund,” described his “violent temper, dictatorial, commanding attitude” — what she termed a contrast from his “Mr. Smiley global-warming concern persona.”

Later, she said, he tried to lure her into the bedroom to hear pop star Pink’s “Dear Mr. President” on his iPod dock. She said Gore sat on one end of the bed and motioned for her to join him.

Suddenly, she said, he “flipped me on my back, threw his whole body face down over a top me, pinning me down.”

She said she loudly protested, “Get off me, you big lummox!”

The therapist said she injured her left leg and knee and sought medical care for several months.

    Tipper swelled up like a tick, could be a factor.

  2. Awake says:

    A female “massage therapist” has a client attempt to have sex with her. What a shocker.

    Of course, if this were a story about a Republican, the story would probably read:

    An evangelical fundamentalist republican politician, known for his crusades against gay rights, has been accused by a male prostitute of an ongoing sexual relationship, involving drugs and diapers.

    Oh yeah, we heard that one already.

    Much more shocking is to learn that Democrats like straight sex.

    “I’m with Woolf and Ah_Yeah,

    Running stories like this hurt a blog’s reputation.”


    Then you can imagine what I think of the Oregonian, after I took a look at their front-page, above-the-fold headline this morning…

    What a bunch of crap, and they seem to have thought it “newsworthy” just because it is alleged to have happened in Portland, Oregon.

    The guy Al Gore is total scum, but it so seems that so are many of dvorkedtard readers of this blog are aswel. Maybe she actually went to do a massage as was the arrangement! Only to get a total sleaze bag hound.

    This world is sick, sick of apathetic and ignorant retards.

    “Running stories like this hurt a blog’s reputation.”

    But posts about a Magic Earthquake Machine Destroying Haiti will improve its reputation.

    WTH was Al thinking about calling a massage late at night when his wife was away? And why has he been silent during the greatest ecological disaster of the decade? Gee.

    # 8 chuck said, “So a “massage therapist” goes to a hotel room, at 10:30pm, to give a “massage” – and she’s just shocked (shocked, I tell you!) that the client, “Mr. Stone” wants a happy ending.”

    One assumes that Gore was staying in a class hotel. These hotels provide massage services often until well after midnight. Ten thirty is not exactly late at night. Business is done, dinner is over, a nice massage at bedtime can be very relaxing. A massage therapist is a trained and licensed professional. The mistake here is (assuming the story is true) is that the woman should have left after the first inappropriate touch. You want sex, call an escort service not a massage therapist in a decent hotel.

    SN, this reads like Kenneth Starr. You could have cut the amount of text you quoted.

    Others, there is no difference between Dems and Repubs. They both belong to the same party.

  8. Rick Cain says:

    Who the heck uses the word “lummox” in conversation?

    Certainly not massage therapists.

  9. Somebody says:

    Licentious lummox.

    Hey, Mr. Right…. BITE ME.

    What a shocker that the police have AGAIN said this was a baseless charge. Glad I was sitting down when I read that!

    It is amazing the difference between “journalism” (www-dot-salon-dot-com/news/feature/2010/06/24/gore_sex_assault_portland_tribune) and “sensationalism” (www-dot-dvorak-dot-org/blog/2010/06/24/is-al-gore-a-sexual-molester/).

    I’m sorry about beating this dead horse, folks, but I’ve come to respect this site enough that this baloney is troubling. Yeah – this site does have stories on marrying cows and magic earthquake machines (there’s always a bit of tongue-in-cheek in those), but it also has stories on finance, government, and the police… Seeing something like this written about seriously does more harm than good.
