Gore is a "pervert and sexual predator. He's not what people think he is – he's a sick man." So says massage therapist Molly Hagerty, the experiences of whom are to be investigated by Police in Portland, Oregon, for the third time.
The former vice president's spokesperson welcomed the new investigation, saying it "will only benefit Mr Gore". He added: "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."
That, I think, is called chutzpah ... or innocence.
