    Even when the accused is the former vice prez? I'm saying his power could have made people turn a blind eye. We've seen that too many times as well.

    I'm not saying I believe her story; I'm saying his power could have had influence were it true.

    I did a quick search in my home city and could not find any massage locations on Yelp that offered a visit outside of their facility.

    One of them had this policy on their web site.



    I am not saying this did not happen it just seems weird that a professional massage therapist would not be able to handle this situation.

    Maybe Al turned on that famous Gore charm.
    Read her statement and you'll have your answers.

    Me, I have no clue. He could be a sleazy slimeball or not. I don't know enough to make that judgement.
    Read what I said a little more carefully. I said that Gore LIKE MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE feel they are privileged. Are you honestly going to claim that many famous people don't feel like they can do as they please with no consequences ???

    I have first-hand knowledge about the behind-closed-hotel-doors illegal/criminal activities of several well-known and influential people on the world stage. None of them were given a pass; none of their accusers were ignored. Oh sure, the culprits had money and lawyers to keep such incidents out of the press, but they still happened with sickening frequency.

    Although, any person can demand any goddamn thing they want any time they want from any person they want. Forcing others to comply with your demands is an entirely different matter, though.

    Beyond this, the head of hotel security at most major hotels is usually a gung-ho former cop. They're all about busting people who are doing bad things, and they don't give a rip who gets caught in their sting operations (up to and including hotel management, i.e. more than willing to bite the hands that feed them). If Gore had been accused of unwanted sexual advances at the places I've worked, the heads of security I've dealt with would never have given him a pass.

    Not with the heads of hotel security that I've known. Hard-core conservatives types to a one.

    What it proves is that Gore made it up to get some booty.
