PORTLAND, Ore. – Former Vice President Al Gore welcomes a Portland police decision to reopen an investigation into a massage therapist's allegations that he groped her at a hotel four years ago, his spokeswoman said.
Kalee Kreider said that Gore "unequivocally and emphatically" denied making unwanted sexual advances. She added that "further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore."
Portland police did not say why it was reopening the investigation in its brief statement Wednesday.
"It's now an open investigation and I can't comment," police spokeswoman Mary Wheat said.
Between this, the divorce, and rumors of an affair--will it ruin is squeaky clean image? Anyone want to speculate on what new evidence might have been found?

The woman said she felt there would be consequences if she didn't cooperate.
I suppose this is where the info train ends. What did she 'cooperate' with?

It's out there now, and the Portland police are being pressured by the media.
If i was Gore and I was innocent I would want them to investigate to clear up my reputation.

I don't understand. Is the victim in this case requesting that the case be reopened? If she didn't and there aren't any damages, what exactly is the point of opening the case again? I have to tell you, after hearing her testimony on the radio yesterday I don't think there is enough brain bleach to clear my mind. It was just like hearing some of Tiger Wood's texts. My mouth just dropped open and the thought that keeps running through my head is 'you never really know people'. Ewwwwww.

I don't believe it was an assault because of her behavior and the length of time in reporting including her multiple canceled meetings with police and her contact with his people.
I do believe there was something "nasty" between the two...happy ending perhaps?? but not an assault
Maybe they found video that would at least in part support her claim? ?? Not sure what they would find NOW that the couldn't find them
