And I thought their break up was because Tipper caught him boring another woman!

She wouldn't have a basis to sue, would she, since nothing happened and she wasn't damaged? What I don't understand is why nothing is happening in the Denver Players case, where lawyers' credit cards are at a brothel serving politicians and former judge Nottingham.

Well, somebody's lying. My money is on the serial liar. You know, the guy who is doing nothing to defend the border, as the constiution requires of him.

@irishgringo, "I can sincerely say I don't care either way... what scares me more are the people who do care..." We should care, this is a self righteous man who has try to make himself to be the "second coming" and savior of climate change. Tipper reportedly left him because he was seeing a "gorgeous masseuse."

Ignorance must be bliss huh Reesh?

Gore must not be as smooth with the ladies as Clinton was.

I find it interesting that the individual who filed the original complaint ceased pursuing it, claiming that the matter would be dealt with in civil court. Of course, that did not happen. And, as a result, this individual then decided to sell her story to the highest bidder -- which, as it turns out, happens to be that upright bastion of the First Amendment, the National Enquirer, a.k.a. the GOP Operations Manual. It seems rather obvious the Republicans are up to their old tricks again. I think it would be appropriate to bring Mr. Gore's accuser into the limelight, let her tell her story publicly, and allow us an opportunity to verify her credibility. No doubt what we'll find is an upright pillar of the community. I feel certain of that. Don't you?

I can sincerely say that I don't care either way... what scares me more are the people who do care... do those religious right wingbats not have anything else to obsess about?

The nice thing about this type of " news" is that it doesn't involve any real reporting. Maybe a Republican operative promised the woman a nose job or new boobs to make the complaint. It worked for Linda Tripp. Is Ken Starr lurking about somewhere hoping to waste millions more of public money on rumor, insinuation, and innuendo?

Gag me with a spoon! This is trash. BTW, what DOES it have to do with the Obama presidency? That is an insinuation in its own right.

Well, at least he appears to prefer women (unlike the former U.S. senator from Idaho).

Move along, no news here.

Same as if out of office Dick Cheny had been accuse of the same thing.

Nothing of interest.

Nope.

An unsubstantiated allegation by an unnamed accuser who supposedly declined to press charges. After 40 plus years of public service otherwise untainted by public scandal, is this anyway to treat a former Senator and Vice-President?

There is NO ALLEGATION, ERGO NOTHING HAPPENED!

WOW ... by these comments, neither side gives this report any credibility and neither side is happy.

What does that say?

Posted by: onehanded | June 24, 2010 2:10 PM | Report abuse

Well, IF it's a lie, and I doubt that it is...how does it feel to be lied to Gore? You lie to the people all the time this just may be your payback. God giveth and God taketh away! Both money AND reputations. So, my suggestion is, you take it to the Lord in prayer. Maybe is you're a good boy, and you haven't done any wrong, and you stop trying to fool the people, He just may help you out of this mess...but...I doubt it.

Four years after the fact, we get a heavily redacted, ostensible police report about an alleged "sexual touching," by a former Vice-President, and WAPO publishes it under the heading, "Obama Presidency."

How is this related to the Obama presidency? Why was it not reported in 2006? What makes it newsworthy today, except as red meat for a lunatic fringe that believes everything they hear, & connects every piece of spurious drivel to our elected President, no matter how unrelated it may be?

WAPO just dropped to several notches below the National Enquirer in reliability as a legitimate news source.

Jeez! What has happened to the American press?

Almost makes me happy I'm not rich or famous. I can't get a massage and then extorted to settle for big money by a masseuse. And I don't have to worry about my adversaries using it to embarrass me four years later. That's the beauty of character assassination in a media-centric culture without a conscience. You can accuse anyone of anything and with the jury-by-media exposure, you can destroy whomever you want.

funny no one heard about this when it happened. the msm did a great job of pushing it under the rug so to say. good thing it wasn't a rebuplican or you would of heard about it when it happened. what an utter embarrasment.

The end of civility and media responsibility is here. A masseuse alleges unwanted touching? Maybe Al declined the "happy ending" and this is the retaliation (perhaps with the intent of monetary gain). Shame on ANY media that repeats this (manufactured?) slander.

Judging by the police report this will be settled in civil court with Gore paying a hefty payout to the victum of his groping. This guy (Gore) is a pig and a liar.

Looks like Karl Rove has been working overtime. This attempt to destroy another honorable man is pretty lame though. Rove's slime is usually a little more sophisticated, and more convincing to the morons that fall for it. Try again, Karl. Maybe you need to go back and read Adolph Eichmann's books again.

This is a fake report. HOAX! The same kind of report went around about Bill Clinton, Glenn Beck, and I think George Bush.

Al Gore is a lot of things, in particular a charlatan, but this is not true.

I guess she rubbed him the wrong way.

Posted by: NAuchi | June 23, 2010 11:50 PM | Report abuse

For all his supposed intelligence, I think Al Gore is an utter moron. Nevertheless, I think the dredging up of 4 year old charges when the accuser refused to pursue charges when the crime allegedly occurred (saying she would pursue it civilly) is complete BS. It smells of a political frame up to remove Gore from the political stage and make way for others.

Unless she has a film of him assaulting her against her will, I don't believe her accusation.

It was bad enough to watch him stuff his tongue down his wife's throat, must less envision the white whale assaulting a working girl in a massage establishment. Geeez....what was he doing there anyway, couldn't find a chiropractor?
