Rightwing bloggers, you gotta read them then wash your eyes with bleach. They reported, passed judgement, and convicted Al Gore on the nonstory based on a discredited masseuse who didn't bother to press charges when the alleged incident happend 4 years ago.
The winner of the popular vote in the 2000 presidential election as well as the Nobel Peace Prize and Oscar for his massively popular film, "An Inconvenient Truth," has been vindicated by the Portland, Oregon, police. They've reported there is no there there. But Holy Slander, Batman! Did the absence of any proof stop the scandal mongering hyenas on the right? No it didn't. Here are some choice excepts from what passes as punditry on some rightwing blogs:
"he's a f***ing pig,
BUT it's like that Juanita Broaddrick woman who once accused Bill Clinton of raping her. The years go by -- "if I could save time in a bottle the first thing that I'd like to do" -- it's an arm of the VRWC, it'll amount to nada, certainly not anything a prosecutor could do anything with but the whole aim is to tarnish. Hatched up at Hannity's house with the aid of Mike Walker. Geez, you'd think with all he's done for the Planet can somebody please finish the guy off already? (memo to Napolitano, that's a sex'chal term). Ah the Chakras, the conservation of sexual energy, the Big O ain't the goal. If you want to put the best spin on it I'm into the Tantra."
Do we think this blogger will apologize for calling an innocent man a "f***ing pig?" Don't hold your breath. They attack like jackals first and when the facts come out to show they are wrong?
And this commenter implies, without a shred of evidence, that Mr. Gore is an adulterer:
"Isn't it strange that the Liberals who are so fast to attack the republicans when they misbehave are so quite on this Al Gore thing!! Why haven’t usual progressive suspects mounted an attack on Al Gore?Why are so many liberal voices muted? Republicans are attacked almost immediately for their adultery.. Why do I sense a bit of hypocrisy here? If there were an Academy Award for Hypocrisy the Democrats would win every category."
Pardon me while I make an observation, but it seems to me that the right wingers are the ones who belong in the swine category, not Al Gore. They took a story without all the facts being known and accused the former vice president of vile behavior and implied worse. These minature Breitbarts show no shame or remorse for savaging an innocent man's reputation and spreading vicious lies about him. There's a special place in hell, the Eighth Circle to be exact, for people who think it's sport to defame and besmirch other people's reputations.
Al Gore cleared of sex assault allegations in Portland
"Portland Police and the Multnomah County District Attorney's office have cleared Al Gore of criminal wrongdoing in the sex assault case filed by masseuse Molly Hagerty.
"After evaluating the materials submitted by PPB I have concluded that I agree with the assessment that a sustainable criminal case does not exist," said District Attorney Michael D. Schrunk, in a statement.
The case was submitted on July 27 for a review of possible criminal charges against Gore stemming from an incident alleged to have occurred during Gore's visit to Portland in October of 2006.
The complaining witness, Molly Hagerty, stated that she was sexually abused during a massage session at the Hotel Lucia when Gore was in Portland.
Gore was interviewed in July in San Francisco. He was adamant he did nothing wrong.
Hagerty failed a polygraph test during the course of the investigation, and there was no DNA evidence on the pants she claimed she wore during the alleged incident, according to investigators. "
