Did Al Gore rape a Portland masseuse? Quite possibly, maybe
Portland Police announced yesterday that they're reopening the sexual assault case against former President-then-not-President-then-President-again-and-then-not-President again Al Gore. Good thing his wife left him earlier this month or he'd be in a heap of shit with her right now. High five! From ABC:
Portland, Oregon, police have decided to reopen the investigation into a 54-year-old masseuse's allegations that former Vice President Al Gore sexually assaulted her in his hotel room in 2006. Massage therapist Molly Haggerty claims Gore "pinned" her and assaulted her.Never a good idea when the first line of your statement is so completely fucking ridiculous that it even makes a seasoned, soulless celebrity blogger cringe. Clearly the police reinvestigating rape claims against you could only result in benefit. We should all be so lucky. Continuing . . .
"The Portland Police Bureau has made the decision to re-open the case regarding the allegations brought forward against Mr. Al Gore," a statement posted on the Portland Police Bureau's website this evening said.
"Consistent with our policy regarding open investigations, the Police Bureau will not be commenting on any additional specifics regarding this case at this time," it said.
A family spokeswoman said today that the Gores welcomed the new investigation.
"Further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore," Kalee Kreider said.
"The Gores cannot comment on every defamatory, misleading, and inaccurate story generated by tabloids. Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago. He stands by that denial."Oh c'mon. does that look like that face of someone who would rape and terrorize an innocent masseuse? Oh right, I guess it does . . . honestly, I got nothing.
