It has been a week, but Al Gore finally came out with a denial of the sex assault claim that was made against him by a masseuse and was reported in The National Enquirer. Since the story first ran it has pretty much been everywhere so I am wondering why it took Al so long to reply.
His denial comes at a time when the Portland police have decided to reopen the investigation into the woman's claims that she was sexually assaulted by the former Vice-President when she gave him a $540 massage.
Again I keep coming back to that price. Who the heck pays $540 for a massage? Gore's family spokesperson said, "The Gores cannot comment on every defamatory, misleading and inaccurate story generated by tabloids. Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago. He stands by that denial."
I guess this is why they never denied the affair claim because they just don't have time to comment on every inaccurate story. Umm, there have only been two tabloid stories about him. Is he that busy that he can't write a sentence or two? For the record, I believe he had an affair, but I still have not made up my mind about the sexual assault. It always clouds things up when people decide to take money instead of justice. On the other hand, the original statement she gave police was very detailed. Plus, I hate to see anyone get away with sexual assault. Maybe she was scared to try and go against him. What do you think?
