Posted on 06/26/2010 11:01:26 AM PDT by maggiesnotebook
The Washington Post is now reporting the Al Gore-Redheaded Masseuse story. Surprisingly, they track how the National Enquirer report relied "heavily" on the documents behind the accusation, and point out the care taken before letting the story go to press.
Gore and his attorneys have been trying to sweep this under the rug since 2007 and again in 2008. There can hardly be an "I don't remember" defense.

Ha! Gore was all wee-wee’d up...in more ways than one.
Has anyone interviewed Tipper yet?
This is a credible story (DNA -stained garment and all). And if so, I’m thinking that this wasn’t an isolated occurrence. Maybe the publicity will bring other examples to the surface, ala Clintoon-esque. That would be sue-weeet.
Didn’t you just post this here?
It would be nice to see manbearpig arrested and in jail for any length of time. In a just world, he would already be there for life and all assets confiscated because of his fraud.
Then why is Tipper divorcing him?
I believe it. He called for a Masseuse at 1:30AM???? Please. She was very detailed and believed her. He drank too much and expected too much and me thinks this is just the beginning of the Al Gore grope train.
Well, gee, maybe because she didn’t like him paying for “service”. I didn’t say that nothing happened, I said that I doubt it was forced. The lady is likely just another opportunist.
You did, you posted the exact same blog twice. For future reference, please post the whole thing. I went there and it locked on me each time. If you post the whole thing, it helps FR readers actually see the entire blog in context. Then if they like it, they’ll go back (but you might wanna make it, say, less “busy” so that it doesn’t lock up).
Gore Response to Masseuse Story: Enquirer Did Not Pay Massage Therapist
The Washington Post is now reporting the Al Gore-Redheaded Masseuse story. Amazingly, they track how the National Enquirer report relied heavily on the documents behind the accusation, and point out the care taken before letting the story go to press.
The most powerful part of the story, if true - and this is coming from the Washington Post, not the Enquirer, is:
According to a source friendly with the Gores, Al Gore confirmed that he received a therapeutic massage in his hotel room that night, and likely from the therapist making the accusation. But, the source said, Gore remembers getting a massage without incident and the therapist leaving on good terms.
When an accused person indicates they remember the incident differently, theyre lying. He obviously remembers this particular massage therapist, this particular night in this particular hotel.
Yes, Gore remembers it well, and not in hindsight. His attorneys have been trying to keep it under the rug since 2007, once again in 2008 - and used not-so-subtle threats when talking to the Portland Tribune:
Gores lawyers wrote: You. . . . are aware that everyone who knows Al and Tipper Gore well can and does attest to the integrity of their 37 year marriage and to his honorable character. [The Gores recently separated]
Leaving the room on good terms that night- apparently worked for him, but not for the woman sent to the room of Mr. Stone.
The article makes it clear that the National Enquirer did not pay for any portion of the story. The Portland, Oregon masseuses attorney asked for money, but got none. For background on this story, read this.
Thing is.... the way this 54 year old red head declares that she's simply certain the she ain't the first to be "man handled" by Al.... makes it possible to believe that maybe others will come forward now that her story is public.
Before you mouth off...why don’t you actually listen to the audio deposition. She didn’t ask for money and she went out of her way to say that she didn’t want money from him. Selling her story is another matter. I don’t know who would pay, as all the details are already on the internet. This was three years ago. No civil suit.
This is why men get away with this crap. And she said it as an explanation as to why she just didn’t run out the door. If you run out the door of Al gore’s room, what do you suppose would happen to YOU? Having been in uncomfortable sexual situations myself, I understand the psychology. He’s a powerful man, he’s physically stronger. She was in an untenable situation. I beg you to listen to the audio before passing judgement.
Yeah. Too bad they have to resort to rape to get any action.
LOL, that's a good one, Hildy!!
Am I mistaken that I read here somewhere that our ex-VP specifically requested an "abdominal massage" ???
We need to come up with a ‘gate for this. Gropegate? Massuesegate?
This can’t be true, at the least Tipper would be divorcing him over it if it were, even after all their years together.
Well, goodness, you *do* know that liberal progressive females have a reputation for being exceptionally prim & proper & prudish, don't you?
Seriously, what a complete loser that he has to FOIST himself on a 54 year old woman who is contracted by the ritzy hotel to give guests professional massages.
poodlegate - short for sexpoodlegate
Sorry, I still don’t believe it. She isn’t going to out right admit she wanted a “payment”. That sort of thing gets handled under the table. As for not walking out the door... PLEASE!
“He drank too much ......”.
I can just imagine how he’d act when drunk. Goofier than Goofy.
That is the grin of the day!
Have you read the police report, the lady's statement?
Does anyone remember Tiger Woods? The first one was soon followed by many more.
Exactly. Have to give Silky Pony credit for one thing. At least he didn’t rape his mistress. Thats the only good thing I can think of to say about him. I don’t think Clinton and Gore have ever tried to go about things the right way. Taking things by force is all they know. Either that or seducing little college girls.
You’re right, women never lie, especially about sex and money.
Abdominal and inner thighs. She also says he forced her hand to his "pubic crest" and insisted that she massage there. You can read the most salient excerpt of her statement at The Smoking Gun.
Of course they sometimes do. But again, have you read her statement?
“The lady is likely just another opportunist.”
Then why wouldn’t she have gone after him IMMEDIATELY in 2006?
And what does she gain by coming forward now? NE didn’t pay her and once the story’s public, she’s entirely lost any negotiating leverage.
I think she was in a no-win situation similar to Juanita Broaddrick’s, went back-and-forth about what to do about it and ultimately in the face of refusal by LE to proceed with further investigation, felt like she had to make the story public. If Al Gore paid her off to go away now, he’d essentially be admitting the story’s truth.
Great, now we’ve got blog pimps in duplicate.
Yes we do.
Yes we do.
Oh, great MM, now you’re sending folks to a rapture blog.
My apologies for the double posting. It was not done purposefully. You’ll note that the url identification is only one number off. It took FR an unusually long time to post. It was just an error.
I guess Algore can forget about an invite to Chelsea’s wedding this summer.
That does indeed happen. Don’t know how many double posts I’ve made where I only hit the button once.
He admits that he called for a woman to feel him up for pay. That everybody agrees on.
Poodlegate it is then.
I guess we now know why the marriage failed.
Hilary is simply isolating any potential threats to her next and final run for the Presidency.
