“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,” The Smoking Gun reports. “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.”
“In December 2006, a lawyer for the woman told police about the purported encounter, but after the masseuse cancelled three interview appointments, the case was closed due to her refusal to ‘cooperate with the investigation or even report a crime,'” The Smoking Gun reports. “It is unclear why, two years later, she approached Portland police and sought to memorialize her allegations against Gore, who she portrayed as a tipsy, handsy predator who forced her to drink Grand Marnier, pinned her to a bed, and forcibly French kissed her.”
The Smoking Gun reports, “After fleeing Gore’s suite, the woman returned home to discover, a la Lewinsky, ‘stains on the front of my black slacks.’ Suspecting that the stains were Gore bodily fluids, the woman made sure not to clean them. ‘I carefully hung them up and decided to be sure not to launder them until I knew more what to do with what had happened. Just my intuition.'”
