Posted on 07/30/2010 10:06:41 PM PDT by lbryce
Former Vice President Al Gore will not face prosecution on an allegation of sexual assault from 2006.
The allegation, brought forth by Molly Hagerty, claims Gore sexually abused her during a professional massage at the Hotel Lucia in Portland on October 24, 2006.
CNN policy is to not name the alleged victim in a sexual abuse case, unless the person has come forward publicly to the media. Hagerty told her story to the National Enquirer.
The Portland Police Bureau did not recommend prosecution "due to a lack of credible evidence," according to the Multnomah County district attorney's office.
"After evaluating the materials submitted by PPB I have concluded that I agree with the assessment that a sustainable criminal case does not exist," Senior Deputy District Attorney Don Rees wrote in a memo Friday. "Ms. Hagerty's detailed statement ... is insufficient to support a criminal charge given other contradictory evidence, conflicting witness statements, credibility issues, lack of forensic evidence and denials by Mr. Gore."
Gore's office in Nashville, Tennessee, released a statement saying the former vice president was pleased with the finding.
"Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago," the statement reads. "He respects and appreciates the thorough and professional work of the Portland authorities and is pleased that this matter has now been resolved."
An attorney for Hagerty did not immediately return a call for comment.
According to the district attorney's office, Portland police first became aware of the allegations in December 2006, when Hagerty's attorney said his client had been subjected to "unwanted sexual contact" by Gore. After a series of canceled meetings with investigators, Hagerty's attorney told police the matter would be handled strictly as a civil case and no police complaint would be filed.

"There is no controlling legal authority that says global warming in my pants was in violation of law."
--Al Gore, numerous times, 2010 Masseuse Convention
Can't say I'm happy for Al Gore once again having evaded the clumsy clutches of all sorts of controlling legal authorities over the years.
Let me just say that there are body parts in which to measure AlGore's true csrbon usage other than his "footprint".
I’m very surprised/not surprised at all.
Does this mean we can go back to assuming he’s gay?
Even neutered dogs can act like Crazed Sex Poodles when the urge hits them to latch onto a leg and go to town.
Jilted lovers are known for sometimes telling tall tales about their exes to smear them. But God knows what happened here. Is this a Rat prosecution team that decided to punt?
If these cops were worth a damn, they would have questioned Tipper.
They really do have nothing but degenerate trash and simpletons in the Demorat Party don’t they?
Tell that to my two neutered tom cats, who both act as though they were blissfully unaware that anything is missing, much to the annoyance of the two female cats of the household.
Is it too much to dare to hope that this will give Al Gore an excuse to bow out of the global warming biz, instead writing books on How I Was Smeared By My Jilted Mistress.
No forensic evidence? Have the pants allegedly stained with Algore’s chakra release been tested and come up null?
That’s so old fashioned. Now it’s chattering clowns of communism, or slobbering sluts of socialism.
Maybe Al Gore won’t give them any more chakra to compare it to.
Sterile. Utterly devoid of anything resembling life on earth.
This must have cost him a guest house in Montecito. At least. Maybe a couple of Lamborghinis.
That is the one that finally made me crack up. KUDOS!
When was the last time any Liberal has been held accountable for their actions and justly prosecuted?
