CNN ^ | June 30, 2010 | None

(CNN) -- Police in Portland, Oregon, say they have reopened their investigation into a massage therapist's allegation that former Vice President Al Gore had "unwanted sexual contact" with her in 2006, a police spokeswoman said Wednesday.

"The Portland Police Bureau has made the decision to reopen the case regarding the allegations brought forward against Mr. Al Gore," Detective Mary Wheat said in a statement issued Wednesday afternoon. "Consistent with our policy regarding open investigations, the Police Bureau will not be commenting on any additional specifics regarding this case at this time."

“unwanted sexual contact”

If it’s because Albert rubbed his “John Henry” up against her she’s going to have to settle this in small claims court.

Why would she have to settle this in small claims court? It was clearly sexual assault.

Apparently, this case is still within the statute of limitations.

'What is the Statute of Limitations on “sexual assault”?"

I'm not familiar with Oregon, but the other states that I am familiar with have 3-4 years for sexual assault as the statute of limitations. I imagine OR has something similar.

More than 4 years probably. This can’t be good news for Al, even on the best case scenario

I would add that since algore isn’t a resident of OR, and therefor is not in the jurisdiction, they probably add 2-3 years because of it. Some states don’t even run the clock if you’re not in it, but that rare.

Well, at least algore and William Jefferson Clinton have something to talk about other than George Bush - how they both love to sexually assault women (allegedly).

I heard on the radio that she has until 2011 to file a civil action.

How many more women will come out? He was way too comfortable with his actions for this to be the first time he tried to force himself on one.

Any one else and he would be locked up and have a sex predator level number attached to him for life.

I don’t know how many more women would come out, but the way this woman is being treated by the media, I am not sure that anyone else would want to go through it. If I recall correctly, she was afraid that a complaint would impact her business, and it looks as though it has. Not to mention just living with the notoriety.

She showed up for a massage and he said, “What about my Dingell/Norwood?”

"I heard on the radio that she has until 2011 to file a civil action."

Really? From 2006? That's unusual. Usually, it's 2-3 years for incidents not involving minors (much longer for minors, as seen by the Catholic Priest scandals of the last decade). I knew Maine had a long SoL for civil torts arising from sexual assaults(6 years) but I thought that was the longest in the country. That's interesting.

I think The Enquirer may have scooped another story the MSM wouldn't cover.

The transcript is here, and given Gore's ego, sense of entitlement and general arrogance I tend to believe the woman.

I wonder if anyone else will come forward ?

It was just as you had described. A normal period, which I don’t recall exactly, plus an add-on due to the fact that Al Gore was out-of-state. The two time frames, added together, put the drop dead date at 2011.

I wonder if his recent split from Tipper was caused by this or something similar yet to emerge ?

OK, I get it now. You're describing the criminal statute of limitations. There are separate statutes for filing torts. I would be surprised if the time allowable for her to file a tort on this particular "incident" has already elapsed. It's not impossible, just unlikely, since we're already nearing the 4-year mark.

I don’t know if statute of limitation would apply, anyway, because she went to the police well before this. They just dismissed her.

“I tend to believe the woman. “

I mentioned on another thread that her carrying her massage table to the room (recorded on video) sealed it for me. I don’t think prostitutes ever do that.

There are other reasons, too, like she was referred by the high class hotel and is on their LMT roster, has a history of legitimate business, and no prostitution history.

Pretty elaborate sting for a political liberal to use on Al Gore, if it’s a false accusation.

I really don’t believe every accusation of sexual assault. Even if it is against someone I don’t respect (like Gore). I know anyone can say anything, and people look for money or notoriety or power.

But I believe this one. I think she will win her case.

"I don’t know if statute of limitation would apply, anyway, because she went to the police well before this."

Remember, the statute of limitations isn't an investigative limit, but a prosecutorial/legal limit on the court. It strips the court of jurisdiction on cases that become "stale". The police can be investigating from the moment the crime occurs, but prosecutors have "x" amount of time to file charges or indict. Once that time expires, that's usually the ballgame.

There are some complicating factors that can extend the limit, and algore's absence from the jurisdiction would likely be one of them, extending the clock for him to be prosecuted at least a little.

I was referring to the his election. The Nobel Peace Prize is an award for being one or all these, a communist, terrorist, a lier, a snake oil salesman or killing dictator. Take your pick.
