    On May 2, 2015, Susan Ingram lay facedown in the dark at her local Massage Envy in West Chester, Pennsylvania, one of the franchise’s nearly 1,200 spas nationwide. It was her seventh session with James Deiter, a massage therapist whom the spa had enthusiastically recommended. By now, Ingram trusted Deiter, and she closed her eyes and relaxed as he worked her muscles.

  • (2010) Al Gore A "Crazed Sex Poodle?"

    UNE 24--In a bizarre statement to police, the Oregon woman who claims that Al Gore fondled and groped her during a massage session described the former Vice President as a giggling "crazed sex poodle" who gave a "come hither" look before pouncing on her in a Portland hotel suite. In a taped January 2009 interview with cops, the 54-year-old woman, a licensed masseuse whose name has been redacted from police records, read from a lengthy prepared statement that detailed her alleged October 2006 encounter with Gore at the Hotel Lucia. Excerpts from the Portland Police Bureau transcript of the 2009...

    With Bill Clinton, it was intimate telephone conversations with his young intern Monica Lewinsky and their infamous cigar. And with Clinton's former vice-president, Al Gore, it is now, apparently, a pair of a stained black trousers. It seems that this everyday item of clothing now threatens to bring this most sanctimonious of moral crusaders crashing down into the gutter. Currently encased in an official plastic bag as police evidence, they are owned by a masseuse who claims that the former American vice-president forced himself on her - and DNA evidence on the trousers can prove it.
  • Al Gore to campaign for Clinton, hoping to galvanize young voters on climate change

    Washington Post ^ | October 4 | Juliet Eilperin
    Former vice president Al Gore will start campaigning for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to individuals briefed on the plan, in an effort to mobilize young voters who see climate change as a key issue. The decision by Gore to plunge into the campaign during the final weeks shows the extent to which Democrats remain concerned that Clinton has yet to connect with many millennials, some of whom are backing third-party candidates this year.

    "As strip malls go, the one you seek is nondescript, all brick exterior and maroon awnings, but there's safety in this disguise, a sense of legitimacy that comes with this out-in-the-open location. ***snip*** According to a 2014 study by the liberal-leaning think tank Urban Institute on the underground commercial sex industry in eight U.S. cities, the total industry--inclusive of Asian massage parlors, brothels, street-level prostitution and other sources--fetched between $39.9 and $290 million in 2007, depending on the city. This demand led to the opening of nearly 600 new illicit massage parlors in the U.S. from 2011 to 2013, pushing...

    While there are few things more relaxing than a good massage, there’s something in this instructional video that slightly takes away from the peaceful environment.Oh, that’s it – a vomiting cat.An eagle-eyed Reddit user spotted the sickly animal, which can be seen barfing its guts up outside a window at approximately 12 seconds into the clip.Here’s the elusive puking cat’s location (Picture: YouTube) While the whole clip lasts several minutes, it becomes fairly tedious pretty quickly, and we can’t help thinking that the inclusion of more puking pets would have livened it up a little bit.It’s not clear why the animal decided to...

    In Taiwan, an unusual kind of massage is given - to those who are brave enough. Knife massages date back more than 2,000 years to China, where they originated. Now Taiwan is one of the few places where they are still practiced. Cindy Sui put herself on the chopping block at a knife massage parlour to give the treatment a try.

    I wonder what Maggy Haggerty think about allegation against John Travolta – that the acclaimed actor sexually assaulted at least two masseurs? I imagine it sounds all too familiar to Haggerty, a massage therapist. She went public three years ago with an accusation that former Vice President Al Gore tried to sex her up in a Portland, Ore. hotel room. “Al Gore is a pervert and a sexual predator,” she charged. “He’s not what people think he is – he’s a sick man.” According to the report she filed with Portland police, Gore was in town to deliver a speech...

    Her neck aching after a night of wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve, Dr. Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson used an electronic massager to relieve the pain. What happened next is unclear, but Broward Sheriff's Office detectives and the Medical Examiner suspect the electronic massager became ensnared with a necklace Ferrari-Gegerson was wearing, and strangled her.

    US Government admits satellite temperature readings “degraded.” All data taken offline in shock move. Global warming temperatures may be 10 to 15 degrees too high. The fault was first detected after a tip off from an anonymous member of the public to climate skeptic blog, Climate Change Fraud (view original article) (August 9, 2010). Caught in the center of the controversy is the beleaguered taxpayer funded National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA’s Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis has now confirmed that the fast spreading story on the respected climate skeptic blog is true. However, NOAA spokesman, Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis...

    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 Al Gore police report is disturbing. To be specific, it's 67 pages of the quite graphically disturbing, as posted here by Red State. You are reading the news of this police report -- originally filed in October of 2006 -- only because the National Enquirer scooped the story. In June of 2010. You did not read it in the Portland Tribune, which has been on this story since 2007 and failed to tell its readers until the Enquirer broke the story. The Tribune's explanation for this is to be found here. Then there's the interesting news that Kathleen Parker,...

    SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Convention Center was packed with more than 11,000 human resource professionals as former Vice President Al Gore made a rare public appearance Monday. Little has been seen of Gore in the past several weeks since confirmed reports of a split with his wife, Tipper, and after allegations surfaced that a 54-year-old masseuse in Oregon reported Gore made unwanted sexual advances toward her in 2006 and accused him of being "a crazed sex poodle." While 10News cameras were ushered out of the Convention Center by members of Gore's camp prior to his speech, some in...

    A Portland massage therapist gave local police a detailed statement last year alleging that former Vice President Al Gore groped her, kissed her and made unwanted sexual advances during a late-night massage session in October 2006 in a suite at the upscale Hotel Lucia. The woman told investigators that she informed two friends and kept the clothes she wore that night, including her black pants with stains on them. But Portland police didn't contact any of the woman's friends, obtain the potential evidence or interview anyone at the hotel, records show. "The case was not investigated any further because detectives...

    DENTON -- Police are looking for a man who gave a woman a massage in her apartment Monday afternoon near the University of North Texas campus. Authorities say he wasn’t a masseur. A 21-year-old woman gave the unidentified man, who posed as a massage student, permission to give her a massage, but she ordered him out of her apartment when his hand began moving up her leg as he rubbed it. But police said today that the man would not face a charge for the massage because the victim allowed him to do it, but he could face an assault...
