Al Gore's Sexual Accuser Wanted $1 Million For Her Story

The Portland masseuse who claims former Vice President Al Gore groped and kissed her in a hotel room in 2006 asked the National Enquirer for $1 million to tell her story.

The magazine’s executive editor Barry Levine said that they turned down her offer and did not pay her or anyone else for the story, but if she has juicy details to share, you can bet someone will find a way to cough up the dough to hear her tale.

Earlier this week The Enquirer obtained  the woman’s detailed Jan. 8, 2009, statement to a Portland sexual assault investigator. The massage therapist said she was called to Portland’s Hotel Lucia at around 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 24, 2006, to massage Al, now 62, who was registered under the name “Mr. Stone.” After arriving at his suite, she claims he pushed her hand toward his groin, fondled her butt and breasts and tongue-kissed her and threw her down on the bed, all against her will.

A Portland police spokesperson acknowledges that Al and the woman were, indeed, in the room together at the same time but authorities have declined to investigate further.

The woman in question hasn’t filed any charges, but says she wants “justice.” So far Al and his wife of forty years, Tipper have had an amicable separation, but that could all change if more details emerge that Al was a sexual predator during their marriage.

What do you think? Does the fact that the masseuse was willing to sell her story make her less credible?

First of all, we all no exactly who this man is! Some just refuse to acknowledge the truth!
Secondly; it has been known for sometime that this man is mentally deranged. Lets put him in an institution where he belongs and then thank God that he was never our president.

First, she should have left immediately if he forced her hand in that manner, screamed, and made a report ASAP if she wasn’ a will participant and it actually happened. Why did she wait so long to say anything. Suppose she thinks she’ll make a bunch of money because she’s seen other people do that. Timing to get publicity hoping for a book deal or something titled “I’m the one that really got his global warming”… Did she tell them about the pants when she finally reported it? Did she even know who he was, or just figure it out and think, geezzz I could have gotten more money out of him, at least a magazine cover. Maybe she thinks her massage biz will take off, but maybe people will stop using her services, fearing she’s going to go after them for money too. I mean is her “service” really worth all of the bother/headaches???

Carol is right, this would have been all over the place during the Clinton years and especially when he was running for President against W. Steve is right, too!

Al, if your reading this, maybe we need to talk again like we did at Bernie’s.

We do have a legal system! Justice is another matter. Sounds like blackmail to me!

Her “story” is so obvious a lie. She didn’t press charges. Tried to sell her story for a $1 million.
Please, if Al Gore was like this, someone would have nailed him during the Clinton years.
They would have come out of the woodwork when he won the Oscar or the Nobel prize. When his publicity was the highest.
Notice that that was when she first reported this to the police – in 2008 (two years after the alledge assault)? Noticew now that Al Gore is back in the spotlight because of his divocre, 2 years later, she’s trying again?
What a lying skank.

Although this is a heinous act, it actually gives Al a more human image, separating him somewhat from Nerdhood! I guess he actually does have feelings.

i agree it’s heinous- THAT WE HAVE TO ENVISION AL GORE HAVING SEX! LOL. (I don’t believe this woman b/c she hung onto the stained pants for 4 years and didn’t come forward until Al was in the news again.) In any case, you make a valid point re this making him less robotic. If Al actually knew his way around the bedroom and had some moves, well, he’s not the man we thought.

If Al, traveling by himself, he felt tired/stressed from his trip so therefore to have some fun it is not forbidden. Remember Tiger Woods to kobees and the list goes on…I think it happens all the time. He is not saint.common.
He is human like others.
