Skip to comments.Al Gore and the Enquirer's non-checkbook journalism
Posted on 06/25/2010 6:07:00 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The executive editor of the National Enquirer says the Oregon masseuse who made a sexual allegation against Al Gore asked the tabloid for $1 million but that the Enquirer did not pay her or anyone else in reporting the story.
Barry Levine said in an interview Thursday that the woman offered to sell her account through her lawyer but that "no money exchanged hands".
According to a source friendly with the Gores, Al Gore confirmed 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.

“Sex crazed poodle” - it couldn’t have happened to a nicer arrogant, condescending, self-righteous prick.
"...the woman tells how Gore greeted her at the door of his room at the Hotel Lucia for the 11 p.m. appointment with a hug that "went on a bit long," then quipped "call me Al." Hotel staff had told the licensed therapist when booking her that the client was Al Gore, but that he was going under the name "Mr Stone."
Gore allegedly asked her to focus on his abdominal area and adductors -- the inner thigh muscles -- as well as his back and other areas.
While his lower body was covered with a sheet, she said, Gore "became vocal" with "muffled moans" and asked her to go lower, getting angry when she refused.
"It appeared he was demanding sexual favors or sexual behaviors," the woman said.
She then asked Gore to show her where he wanted to be massaged and he "grabbed my hand, shoved it down under the sheet to his ***** **** area, my fingers brushing against his ***** and firmly planted my hand on his pubic crest region and said to me 'There!' in a very sharp, loud, angry-sounding tone."
The woman told police she was caught in "a perfect storm" in a room with someone who was "Teflon-coated in terms of his credibility and celebrity status"..."
Police specifically responded to claims by the woman -- who said she remained clothed through the alleged encounter -- that she had noticed her black slacks had "stains" on them.
Police said they did not collect her attire because they believed it would not provide evidence.
At this point, the Police Bureau does not consider this an ongoing investigation unless new evidence is received in this case, Wednesday's police statement said.

Nurse backs up Clinton rape charge
Attended Broaddrick's wounds after alleged assault in Arkansas
June 26, 2003
[a few excerpts from article...]
Kelsey recalls Broaddrick saying the meeting with Clinton began with small talk, and "she was a little surprised he was by himself."
"She said he was showing her locations outside the window there in Little Rock, and then, all of a sudden, he just kind of grabbed her and started kissing her," remembers Kelsey.
"He overtook her and pushed her to the bed, and from that point on it was just a rape."
Kelsey says Broaddrick explained how her lip became swollen: "He bit her lip to try to keep her from struggling with him."
algore always had a problem w/his memory.
Pray for America
Wash Post said the same thing about Edwards
Of course, this is the same Gore who remembered inventing the internet.
A man of the people! We all get therapeutic massages in our hotel rooms when we travel, don't we?
So the “warming” he has felt all along wasn’t global warming? We’ve been had! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Loser.
He didn’t remember any fundraisers at Bhuddist temples either.
Gore has followed his old boss’s teaching well, except for one thing....
he doesn’t have old snake head running around the media shouting, “sluts and nuts, sluts and nuts”.
"Nobel Prize people could sure pick em"
Didn’t he register under the name of Mr. Stone? If true why?
Well, we all know John Edwards was innocent of any affair also since he told us time and again....
Wait a minute.
“rotund” also. I started laughing when I read that.
abdominal massage, Mr Stone?
“VIP”’s do this all the time. Imagine the night desk staff going through the registration, twittering & texting “guess who’s staying here tonight”.
Please don’t insult the poodles.
I think “swine” may be a bit more descriptive, but don’t want to insult them either.
But you hit the nail on the head with the “self riteous prick” part.
Half a billion dollars made from a lie.
