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

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

    Former Vice President Al Gore was accused of "unwanted sexual contact" by an unidentified woman in Portland, Ore., in 2006, according to local law-enforcement officials, although no criminal charges were filed. A lawyer representing the woman contacted Portland police in late 2006, according to the office of Multnomah County District Attorney Michael D. Schrunk. However, the woman refused to be interviewed by authorities and said she did not want to pursue a criminal case against Gore.

    The woman declined to participate in a criminal investigation because she planned to pursue a civil case at the time, Portland Detective Cheryl Waddell told The Oregonian. ... However, she reported to the police in 2009 that she was repeatedly subjected to unwanted sexual touching while in his presence, according to The Oregonian.

    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. The alleged victim's attorney, Randall Vogt, told The Oregonian that the " file was closed and put to bed and forgotten." The National Enquirer was the first to report the allegations.
    Eeesh. The whole story seems a bit strange - her lawyer went to the police in 2006 to complain of a sexual assault, but never did anything about it. Then she herself talked to the police in 2009, but the police never went forward with it. Now in 2010, she's...doing what exactly? It's not clear what precipitated this story.

    Either way, the National Enquirer once again breaks a story. Pretty damn impressive.

    No way. Everyone knows Al Gore is asexual.

    A woman was subjected to the unsolicited molestation of Al Gore? Perchance, was her name "science"?

    I'm surprised at you NYC for posting a story about an accusation that has no proof.

    You aren't one of the people who thought slick Willy was innocent until the dress was found are you?

    What's particularly surprising about it? Regardless of whether the underlying accusations have merit (and I thought I made my views on that fairly clear), the fact that they exist is inherently noteworthy, as evidenced by the fact that this is on the front page of the NYT, the Wash Post, etc.

    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"

    Its all just a nefarious plot by manbearpig.

    You know, the thing that's half man, half bear, half pig.

    Odd story that, interesting to see where it goes.

    i think he accidentally touched his own penis
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    This--without a shadow of a doubt--proves that global warming is nothing but a fabricated myth!!!
    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.
