NEW YORK (CBS) Portland police questioned former U.S. Vice President Al Gore in San Francisco Thursday regarding renewed allegations that he sexually assaulted massage therapist Molly Hagerty in 2006, according to t-v station KATU.
On July 1, Portland police re-opened their investigation into the red-haired masseuse's claims that Gore, who was in Portland as part of a global warming speaking tour, attempted to sexually assault her during a massage at the posh downtown Hotel Lucia on Oct. 24, 2006.
Police spokeswoman Mary Wheat refused to disclose the reason behind the case's re-opening after it was previously closed twice because of insufficient evidence.
But the decision prompting investigators to take a further look came the day after Hagerty revealed her identity to the National Enquirer and claimed to possess forensic evidence that could work in her favor, including a half eaten candy bar and a pair of stained pants from the former Vice President that she reportedly held in a safe deposit box.
A statement by Gore spokeswoman Kalee Krieder said that Gore "unequivocally and emphatically" denied the sexual allegations that arose more than three years ago. She also indicated that "further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore."
In late 2006, Hagerty's attorney contacted police, but she then refused to answer questions from detectives and asked to halt the investigation. No charges were filed.
A 2007 police report said the accuser refused to cooperate with the investigation or report a crime.
However, in January 2009 Hagerty gave a statement to police saying Gore attempted to have sex with her during an appointment at the swanky hotel, where she said Gore was listed as "Mr. Stone."
According to Hagerty's statement, the 54-year-old woman said she was doing requested abdominal massage on Gore when he began to moan and

Hmm... I've never heard of these additional accusations. Perhaps this is the reason they agreed to re-open the case.
Imagine being the white shoe lawyer who got to sit in on that. $900/hour to hear Al Gore ramble and dissociate when asked questions like “Now, just to clarify, was this before or after you pulled your thingy out?”
“Gore interviewed by Portland detectives”
By KATU News and KATU.com Staff
SNIPPET: “A law enforcement source confirms to KATU News that Portland detectives interviewed former U.S. Vice President Al Gore this past week in San Francisco.”

SNIPPET: “By July 1, the Portland Police Bureau reopened its sexual assault investigation into Al Gore. Officials said the extra review was needed because detectives looking into the matter this past year failed to notify high-ranking officials of the decision to drop the case.
The additional questioning comes on the same day as The Enquirer published the stories of two other massage therapists. Those therapists now claim Gore made unwanted sexual advances toward them. Those therapists worked at hotels in Tokyo and Los Angeles.”
Gore is really a loser if he had kind of trouble in Tokyo.
It’s not something to be proud of, but at any major hotel there are girls on call that provide those services discreetly and efficiently.
Remembeer when as Vice President he was caught using his office to raise campaign money and Janet Reno's decision saved his sorry political career of course untl 2000. At the tme he said "No legal controlling authority.." He might also use that to say "No legal controlling authority" ...can deny me my gratification" :-)
Serious, WTF happened to this guy's head?
I don’t know that anything did. He’s always been full of sh!t. All His made up stories of tobacco farming, inventions, love stories. As much as biden is a light weight, gore was a bigger one.
I read somewhere that his swollen, deformed face, Rosacea-like, red-blotched skin condition is venereal in origin.
Yeah, I kind of figure out that one. The new thing for me, however, is that those additional girls are willing to talk.
What do you mean when you use the word "chakra."
Pretty sexist words from CBS, eh? Categorizing women by hair features is contrary to the PC style book rules...unless you want to belittle them, e.g. "big-haired Paula Jones."
When it’s their man on the line, when it’s their ox being, pardon the expression, Gored, political-correctness be damned.
I think it is because he is such a contemptible loser.
He’s most likely the kind of John that working girls hate the worst.
What’s more, I am pretty sure there will be a lot more stories showing up now that a few of the other girls have come forward.
It goes back to what has been written recently about how liberals, especially rich liberals, feel that they are so special because they “care” about things that the normal rules of society do not apply to them.
Gore, in his own demented mind, probably felt he was justified to be outraged that these women failed to show him the service and difference that is his due. They should have been humbly grateful for the chance of a lifetime.
It’s disgusting and despicable — but it is also so predictable where liberals are concerned.
An inconvenient truth.
I wonder if TS-CP will talk himself into jail? Quite a few perps do.
“at any major hotel there are girls on call that provide those services discreetly and efficiently.”
I think Gore wanted call girl services at masseuse prices. I don’t have any direct experience with this, but my presumption is that the hourly rate for masseuses is significantly lower than for call girls of comparable “quality”.
