Former VP Al Gore, who recently separated from his wife of 40 years, Tipper Gore, has finally broken his silence to vehemently deny the sexual assault accusations made against him by a masseuse named Molly Hagerty.
Portland, Ore., Police has already reopening the investigation into Mollyâ€™s claims that she was a victim of an “unwanted sexual contact” with Al during a three hour massage session almost four years ago, back in October 2006.
“Further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore,” says family spokesperson Kalee Kreider. “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.”
The masseuse was offered $1 million to exclusively tell her story to the National Enquirer after giving a statement to the police last year and considering the possibility of suing Al Gore. The case wasnâ€™t further investigated at the time because the woman was not willing to talk and due to “insufficient evidence to support the allegations”.
