Portland police will reopen their investigation into Al Gore and allegations that the former V.P. sexually abused a massage therapist named Molly Hagerty.
Guy hasn't felt the heat like this since November 2000!
The 2006 claims by Molly Hagerty did not lead to charges. Officials also may have briefly re-examined the case last year, resulting in recent media leaks.
Just last week, police said the matter wasn't investigated further due to "insufficient evidence to support the allegations" and the accuser was uncooperative.
They were not specific about why they were taking another look at it this time, but Hagerty has since gone public with her claims against the politician.
She told the National Enquirer in graphic detail about the awful night Al Gore sexually abused her, allegedly, in his hotel room after paying for a massage.
GORE-Y DETAILS: More are sure to come for Al.
A week after the inconvenient rumor first surfaced that Al Gore faced allegations of sexual assault, the former Veep issued a strongly worded denial Wednesday.
Confident that he will be exonerated, his camp says "Further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore," according to spokesperson Kalee Kreider.
"[Gore] cannot comment on every defamatory, misleading, 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 Enquirer, which has blown the lid off the Tiger Woods and John Edwards cheating scandals, was the first to report on the masseuse's statement to the police last year regarding the alleged abuse at a luxury hotel in October 2006.
Molly Hagerty was reportedly considering suing the 62-year-old Gore before approaching the celebrity gossip publication, asking for $1 million for her story.
It's unclear if she was paid that, but the Enquirer is unabashed about doing so for solid intel and, as Edwards' scandal proved, it doesn't mean it's not true.
What do you think? Do you believe Molly Hagerty?
