    God, yet another pass in the ongoing political football game. "YOUR GUY DID THIS!" "OH YEA? WELL YOUR GUY DID THIS TOO!". If it's true, then yea Al Gore should pay the price, but I absolutely hate it when idiots politicize sexual behavior.

    Me, as a woman, I could not possibly image staying and completing my job after being violated in such a way. Especially when it was so easy to walk out the door.

    Now whether there was some funny business going on between them, that is a different story... and it might have happened. But her story of what happened does not make on iota of common sense. It doesn't take Sherlock to figure out her story reeks.
    I don't believe anything, but I'm not willing to accuse this woman of being a money hungry liar as you two have. I simply enjoy pointing out hypocrisy when I see it.

    It's obvious that Gore, like many famous people, feel they are of the privileged class and can take whatever they feel like at the time, with no repercussions.

    It appears that this story might have some legs though. It seems that the Portland DA has announced that he is willing to pursue a criminal investigation if further evidence is offered. The black pants with Gore's premature dribble on it perhaps???

    Who do you think they would believe? The woman or the ex-vice president spending thousands of dollars there???
    Gill, I don't see that happening at all. When a person reports a situation/crime immediately after, there is a lot of credibility on the part of the accuser. The person to whom she would report what happen would be able to describe her demeanor (She was very upset and shaken), which only heightens her credibility. If something like that happened to me, I can't imagine having the rationality to think, "If I report this, they will kick me out of the hotel permanently." There is something fishy about the story.

    Since you believe that a powerful man can demand anything he wants of a woman with no consequences, including sexual favors, any further discussion is a waste of time.

    Having spent many years in the convention hotel business, I can tell you with authority that any such complaint would be immediately investigated by hotel security, with followups by the local police. Been there, seen that (too many times).

    I hope you're right, but I can't help but think that someone like Gore would get a pass.

    Speaking of hypocracy, you have no trouble accusing others of it, yet you make this sweeping statement about Gore. How do you know this as fact? Do you know him personally? Where you the fly in his hotel room wall? Has he made advances towards you or anyone else that you know who confided to you?

    Me, I have no clue. He could be a sleazy slimeball or not. I don't know enough to make that judgement.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: Al Gore Accused of "Unwanted Sexual Contact" in 2006, Authorities Say

    So is anyone wondering how he procured her services. Was she an employee of the hotel or was she an independent therapist who makes hotel visits. If she was the latter then I would think she would know how to handle this kind of situation as I would think that Gore was not the first person to pursue a "happy ending".

    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.

    ANY SEXUAL remarks, misconduct or advances will discontinue the appointment immediately and the full price for the service will still be owed.
    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.
