The Oregonian newspaper has now published a much more detailed account of what happened between Al Gore and a massage therapist in his upscale Portland hotel room in 2006. You can read it HERE. According to her statement in the police report, Gore lunged for her (my euphemism) as soon as she entered his hotel suite.
Then, "Gore changed into a bathrobe, spoke of his grueling travel schedule and need to relax and told her to call him 'Al.'... While giving Gore an abdominal massage, she said he demanded that she go lower and soon grabbed her right hand and shoved it under the sheet... She went into the bathroom to wash up and came out to pack up. That's when, she says, Gore wrapped her in an 'inescapable embrace' and fondled her... She... tried to distract him, pointing out a box of Moonstruck chocolates on a nearby table. He went for the chocolates and then offered her some, cornering her, fondling her and shoving his tongue in her mouth to french kiss as he pressed against her."
She also characterizes Gore as "rotund" and as a "lummox." This Oregonian story also relates the 54 year-old masseuse's explanation for why she only went to police last year, over two years after the event.
