sex crazed poodle?" That's what one masseuse says about the former vice president. The Al Gore Divorce and sexual assault claims are making their way through the rumor mills and dominating the headlines surrounding the global warming fighter.
Initially when Al Gore's divorce from Tipper was announced, they announced that the reason for the split was that they grew apart. Seems like a weird explanation for someone that has been married for over four decades and has grown kids and grandkids.
Of course an affair was immediately speculated. Al Gore spent a lot of time with Clinton, and birds of a feather flock together. However, no immediate rumors hit the circuits. That was until this week.
Only it's not exactly an affair. A masseuse claims that Gore sexually assaulted her in a hotel, and forced himself upon her. She did make a report - but not immediately. She also sold her story to the Enquirer for a cool six figures.
So just because the claims were made doesn't make them true. Of course, it's possible - anything is possible. Isn't it ironic, though, that someone came forward and sold a story such as this after Al Gore's divorce made headlines? Why not come forward with this sooner? It would have been a headline grabber anyways given that he's the former VP.
Al Gore's people deny the allegations. The Enquirer has broken many high profile stories such as the John Edwards affair and the Tiger Woods first alleged affair so this will definitely be a conspiracy theory in the political circles until it can be proven or disproven.
