Did Gore sexually assault Portland massage therapist? Police re-open case

Via The Oregonian (h/t: William Teach):

Portland police said Wednesday that they will reopen and investigate a massage therapist’s allegations that former Vice President Al Gore sexually assaulted her at a downtown hotel in October 2006.

The new stance came as therapist Molly Hagerty went public, telling the National Enquirer in its latest edition that she’s demanding a full police investigation of her complaint.

Records that police released last week revealed that Portland sex assault investigators took a detailed statement from Hagerty in January 2009 but never investigated it and closed the case, citing “insufficient evidence.”

Police said last week that they considered the case closed unless new evidence surfaced. Police said earlier Wednesday that Hagerty had not contacted them, and they did not explain their decision later in the day to reopen the case.

“Consistent with our policy regarding open investigations, the Police Bureau will not be commenting on any additional specifics regarding this case at this time,” police spokeswoman Detective Mary Wheat said in a prepared statement.

A Gore family spokeswoman disputed Hagerty’s allegations.

A few days ago, Hannity played a short clip from a tape of her statement to the police. I got a little sick just listening to it. Seriously. Of course, part of the reason is that it makes me sick to think that a man could do that to a woman, but the other reason is because I do NOT want to picture Al Gore in any type of sexual situation. Not only that, but I don’t wan’t to believe that this is true. I can’t stand Gore as it is. This, along with the affair allegations – if true, would just take him to a whole new level of scumbag, a la John Edwards.

Oh, and the Portland Tribune’s “rationale” for sitting on this story back when the incident allegedly happened? Unacceptable.

Anyway, would love to hear your thoughts on whether or not you believe the allegations are credible/true.
