why now? Why not persue this & discredit this fool on the heals of the heinous 2007 Nobel award?
Because his Democrat enemies are preparing for the next primaries? Because George Soros thinks he's getting too influential?
Some of this is theory, some fact.
When this first happened, the woman was going to let this drop. (In fact, a victim's group advised her to do that so the world would not be destroyed by global warming. No, I'm not kidding.)
I'm thinking the Enquirer heard something about the incident and contacted her. At that point, she felt it was time to go to the police. (I had heard that she went to them as well when this first happened, but I'm not sure of that.)
I also think Gore was contacted by the Enquirer, and perhaps Tipper. It quite possibel that's why they are now breaking up. This was probably just the last straw for her.
