Portland police announced today that it will re-open and investigate a Portland massage therapist’s allegations that former Vice President Al Gore sexually assaulted her at a downtown hotel in October 2006.
The announcement comes as the therapist went public for the first time, telling the National Enquirer that she demanded a full police investigation of her complaint.
...Molly Hagerty is photographed in the latest edition of the National Enquirer, holding the black pants she wore that night. She’s quoted saying she paid for a DNA analysis of a stain on the pants. The paper also mentioned videotape footage from the Hotel Lucia, where the encounter occurred, and named a computer consultant who told the tabloid that Hagerty called him at about 4 a.m. Oct. 24, 2006, and told her immediately about details of the attack.
Portland police said last week they considered the case closed unless new evidence surfaced. Police did not explain their decision today.
"Consistent with our policy regarding open investigations, the Police Bureau will not be commenting on any additional specifics regarding this case at this time,'' Portland Det. Mary Wheat, bureau spokeswoman, said in a news release.
If these allegations are true, then the high priest of gloBULL warming may be giving his next sermon from inside an Oregon lock box.
