Law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., have concluded that there is insufficient evidence to proceed with a criminal prosecution of former vice president Al Gore after a massage therapist accused him of sexually assaulting her in a 2006 incident.
The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office reached its decision after reviewing a follow-up Portland police investigation into the woman's allegations. The case was reopened in June after the massage therapist publicly asserted in a National Enquirer article that Gore tried to force her to have sex with him.

"Do I really have to say it?"
Please excerpt Washington Post material at all times. Thank you.
Please. The woman was a liar. It turns out she had no pants at all.
“It turns out she had no pants at all.”
To be more precise, the pants were tested, but stains were not semen.
So, now, no one will remember this incident . . . right? giggle
According to the statement on the Portland PD’s website, the DA declined to prosecute.
There were just te two of them there and it was basically his word against hers. When Al got frisky she should have walked out.
I will, thanks!!
It turns out that the rapist had a penis.
Thanks for the clarification.
That is interesting. Just because the case was dropped does not mean it didn’t happened, it just means that the DA is not interested in going forward. Sometimes that means that there is not enough evidence or in this case they are trying to protect AlGore.
I can't stand Al Gore, and I would be the first one piling on if this story had any credence, but from everything released so far, this woman sounds as unbelievable as the Duke Lacrosse "victim". The DA's career, in that case was rightfully destroyed because he ran with a case that had no evidence, why should this case be any different?
Oftentimes, it means the DA doesn’t think he can get a conviction. I read an article from an Oregon newspaper that said there was no dna evidence on the pants.
Let’s see what The Enquirer or the masseuse does next. The lengthy and thorough account of the encounter is what tended to give the accusation credibility.
Good, now Tipper will take him back.
Do you think she will join forces with the other woman who have come forward with similar stories?
It is interesting that Tipper left him on or about the time the story broke.
It’s difficult to say. Sadly, this masseuse incident seems just like the kind of petty and controlling behavior that Al has exhibited in other areas. It’s possible that Gore may have spread some of his carbon trading $$$ around to put an end to the legal aspect of this incident. He should have done so sooner, but he doesn’t seem to have a real strong connection with reality.
But, as with OJ, it will never go away. It is pretty funny and provides endless fodder for the late night comics.
If Gore did it, he will do it again. This kind of behavior is not something easily controlled. A few years from now something else will come out. Maybe a street hooker incident like Hugh Grant.
I guess Al had a short arm inspection.
