Police re-open probe of allegations against Al Gore

Police in Portland, Oregon, say they have reopened their investigation into a massage therapist's allegation that former Vice President Al Gore had "unwanted sexual contact" with her in 2006, a police spokeswoman
said Wednesday.

News of the allegations surfaced in a "National Enquirer" report last week, prompting the Portland Police Department to release a statement explaining that there was not enough evidence  at the time to lay charges.

On Wednesday, the department announced that they have decided to re-open the case but would not comment further.

    The newspapers in this country have turned into gossip tabloids. Real news like the Afghan or Iraq issues are hidden by this government from the public. Lewinsky should be investigated to see whom else she slept with. Maybe she knew Mr. Starr real well?
