Amazing what results those National Enquirer stories get. The media formerly known as mainstream ignored the John Edwards love child story for what, two years, before actually reporting it and he's now off in no-man's land staring at indictment.
Now while police originally dismissed the allegations against the Wooden Indian and the local media buried the story, now all of a sudden it's time to re-open the case?
Hmmm. Why do I get the sneaking suspicion Gore won't be giving any of his discredited lectures in Oregon any time soon?
Portland, Oregon, police have decided to reopen the investigation into a 54-year-old masseuse's allegations that former Vice President Al Gore sexually assaulted her in his hotel room in 2006.This of course sends the Gore spin machine into overdrive.
"The Portland Police Bureau has made the decision to re-open the case regarding the allegations brought forward against Mr. Al Gore," a statement posted on the Portland Police Bureau's website this evening said.
"Consistent with our policy regarding open investigations, the Police Bureau will not be commenting on any additional specifics regarding this case at this time," it said.
A family spokeswoman said today that the Gores welcomed the new investigation.
"Further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore," Kalee Kreider said. "The Gores cannot comment on every defamatory, misleading, and inaccurate story generated by tabloids. Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago. He stands by that denial."
