Tipper & Al cover big assets
NY Post ^ | June 27, 2010 | ISABEL VINCENT and MELISSA KLEIN

Posted on 06/27/2010 6:54:26 AM PDT by maggief

Buying an $8.8 million California mansion months before announcing their divorce wasn't the only puzzling real-estate transaction for the Gores.

A month after snagging the Montecito estate in October 2009, Al and Tipper Gore transferred nine properties in Carthage, Tenn., from their own names into a limited liability company.

one can only hope that their divorce gets nasty and Tipper dumps a few truck loads of dirty laundry about Al THE WHORE GORE for the world to see what a lying piece of crap scumbag he is. Wouldn’t it be funny if she accuses him of also having an affair with Monica Lewinsky?

He's scary looking.

I've always thought that kiss with Tipper at the DNC convention, when he got the nomination to run for President, was phony and disturbing.

Something about it told me all was not right in paradise.

Yeah me too. I always assumed it was just because they were nasty leftists. No soul. So everything seems fake with them.

It was intended to show that he loved his wife, unlike Clinton.

But it was animalistic and tasteless. It wasn’t just insincere; it was brutish.

It is strange the media is covering Gore the way they are. Liberals do this kind of crap all the time but it is not covered this way by the media. They usually ignore it.

Maybe there was a rumor he might challenge Obama in 2012 so he is now being destroyed.

There is something going on there-I suspect they are trying to protect assets acquired through the global warming hoax in the event they are sued for fraud, or whatever. Who knows at this point; but, stay tuned for further developments.

excerpt:

"...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.

Oh no. These assets are being protected from a much bigger threat. A civil suit by the masseuse.

Not much different from what Clinton did. He tried to shut down witnesses, Gore wants to make sure she can't get anything if she wins.

I see no puzzle. Owl Gore and Tipsy needed to hide their assets so they can't get sued out of them for humping the masseuse’s leg!

Why has no one considered that the break up of their marriage could be ASSET PROTECTION. Maybe Algore knows some big law suit is around the corner and he and Tipper are protecting their assets by putting everything in her name and then getting divorced. He can not loose anything in a lawsuit if he does not have anything. If they are still married, having everything in Tipper's name still does not protect their assets, they have to be no longer married for all of their assets to be protected.

"TAX CHEATING....nothing but TAX CHEATING!!"

The article cries wolf.

They knew they would be separating and probably divorcing. Their tax attorneys explained how to minimize the tax consequence of the divorce. There is nothing here at all.

BTW, you too can transfer your house to an LLC.

Hadn’t thought of that; but, you may well be right. He could have had a “heads-up” that the masseuse was coming after him-makes sense. I hope the situation deteriorates for him-I wouldn’t say that normally; but, we’re talking Algore here.

I wonder if Gore, upon setting up the limited partnership or the LLC, if Al is the General Partner, as well as a limited partner. If Tipper has assummed only the limited partnership position, she has left Al with 100$ control of the entities while Tipper retains her partnership interest, she will have no say as to how or when assets are dispersed. Now Al, if he is the general partner, while receiveing management payment, this is an expense of the partnership, but poor Tipper will only receive distribution when the general partner decides to make a dispersement. Or if an asset is sold, the money goes into the partnership account, but does not have to be dispersed. This way Al will retain 100% ccntrol and Tipper will have no say as to how or when her “interest” in the the LLP or LLC will be given to her. She is simply at the wim of Mr.Gore, IF they set it up cutting Tipper out of the position of being one of the general parteners.

If you stand on principle rather than take sides, you uphold that principle regardless of who is involved. All you are doing, clearly without understanding of the issue, is defamation. This is neither principled, nor conservative, nor moral.

Looks like a fraudulent transfer in an attempt to prptect assets in a lawsuit that is sure to be filed. Could be a problem if the woman does not sue before a time limitation period for asset transfers expires.

That kiss - which was disturbing - was meant to convey that he was NOT Bill Clinton. Bad as it was, can anyone imagine Bill and Hillary doing that ? For one instant?

Since the incident with the lady who was just trying to do her job occurred long before the assets were transferred....
Some courts might negate that transfer- seeing that Gore was prepping for holding back money/assets that a jury might award the lady.

IIRC, asset transferred within X years preceding a judgment would be subject a court’s putting them back into the ownership of the original owner.
