    The statements taken by the police ARE her words. They were quite willing to pursue charges, they TRIED to, but she refused. Nope, sorry. Money grubber.


    The Multnomah County district attorney's office was aware that the woman's attorney filed a complaint with police about two months after the encounter, but the woman didn't show up for three scheduled interviews with police investigators. At that time, police were told the woman didn't want to proceed with a criminal case and would pursue a civil case instead.

I know there are other interesting allegations surfacing regarding the alleged perp. I know sexual assault victims frequently behave in a manner others find irrational. But **** her...
    Yes. **** her. Going for money for herself instead of justice isn't irrational. It's very calculated.

    It was going to end up here whether I posted it or not, so I figured this would be a better start to the thread than "LOOK WHAT AL LEARNED FROM SLICK WILLY!!!!11"
    Stories about Bush being AWOL made the front pages for a few days too. That didn't make them true either. Also, it seems that some people are ignoring the following from your link:

    Police investigated the case further that year, according to the district attorney's office, but Gore was still not charged. Police said there was insufficient evidence to support the woman's claims, according to the newspaper.
    And these are some of the same people who complained that Obama is penalizing BP with the 20 billion dollar fund, claiming that BP is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty.

    So - is this article you've provided related the the article in the OP?
    According to the OP - there was no lengthy investigation, file, details given about any incident.

    Two different women - one who cooperated and divulged information and one who did not? or the same woman with 2 faulted stories that completely conflict with each other?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    perhaps. Doesnt mean it didnt happen precisely how she described it. Paula Jones sued for sexual harassment...not sexual assault. Again...doesnt mean it didnt happen.

    Completely true, but they were still "newsworthy."
