Considering that he was just in the Philippines recently for the climate change forum An Inconvenient Truth, the news about a sex scandal that Al Gore figured in way back in 2006 is, to say the least, shocking. The whole brouhaha is based on a National Enquirer report where Gore is described as a “sex crazed poodle” by a massage therapist he reportedly made advances on.
In the Philippines, there are some spas which take pains to advertise clean massage 😀 But former VP Gore allegedly needed some warming up, and this warming up didn’t have anything to do with global warming.
Excerpted from The First Post:
According to a 73-page ‘Confidential Special Report’ made public by Portland (Oregon) police yesterday, the masseuse was asked to do abdominal and “abductor” work on Gore. The latter meant massaging his inner thigh, she explained to police.
But when she started working on his abdomen, he began to moan and demanded she “go lower”. She told police: “I was shocked, and I did not massage beyond what is considered a safe, nonsexual area of the abdomen… He further insisted and acted angry, becoming verbally sharp and loud.
“I went into much deeper shock as I realised it appeared he was demanding sexual favours or sexual behaviours.”
The woman said Gore grabbed her hand and shoved it toward his groin. He then “flipped me flat on my back and threw his whole body face down over atop me pinning me down and outweighing me by quite a bit.”
She claimed she injured her back and legs as a result. The woman described the situation as “frightening.”
I have to admit the news is juicy. But being a media person, we don’t necessarily believe everything we see on the news as gospel truth. It could be that Gore’s anti-environmental enemies are at work and pinning him down at this low point in his life when he’s on the verge of divorce from long-time wife Tipper. Or it could be true? who knows
if Gore is a DOM he is just human.
Hmm, ano naman kaya masasabi ni Loren Legarda dito? 😛
