There was a dirty little new scandal that broke early this morning involving former Vice President Al Gore.
A masseuse is alleging that Gore got frisky with her back in 2006 while she was trying to massage him at Portland's Hotel Lucia. Al Gore was reportedly paying $540 for the massage, so maybe he thought that came with a happy ending.
And surprise, surprise, the 54-year old woman is now speaking to the press.
She said: “It was apparent from the beginning he had been drinking. The hug went on a bit too long and I was a bit taken aback by it. If it weren’t Al Gore I would have seriously questioned the situation right there because a hug from an unknown male client before a session is a bit odd and unprofessional.
“I was taught that a massage of the adductors could cause an involuntary erection. When I began doing the requested abdominal area he became vocal with muffled moans, etc. He began demanding that I go lower and massaging on the abdominal area. I was shocked. He further insisted and acted angry, becoming verbally sharp and loud. I went into much deeper shock as I realized it appeared he was demanding sexual favors,” she added.
The masseuse went on to say that she informed Gore that the massage he was gonna get did not involve a happy ending and he had to take matters into his own hands. He then “pleaded, grabbed me… tongue kissed me… rubbed my buttocks with his hand and fingers and rubbed himself against my crotch saying, ‘You know you want to do it.’”
This story seems a little shady to us! Why did she wait 4 years to go public with this story? And why did she happen to go public right after Al Gore announced that he was separating from his wife of 40 years. It’s probably another person trying to make a quick buck!
