Al Gore Questioned Groping Case

Al Gore continues to face heat for his alleged groping of a masseuse, but after being questioned will he now still face charges?

The former Vice President, who simultaneously both won and lost the election in 2000, has been accused of groping a masseuse that he got a massage from, but after the questioning he faced this week, he will reportedly be cleared of criminal charges.

Said a spokesperson "Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago. He respects and appreciates the thorough and professional work of the Portland authorities and is pleased that this matter has now been resolved."

Former Vice President Al Gore was cleared Friday of allegations he groped and assaulted a masseuse in a luxury Portland hotel room in 2006, closing a case that could have tarnished the Nobel prize winner's reputation. After a four-week investigation that included interviews with Gore, masseuse Molly Hagerty, her acquaintances and hotel staff, as well as testing a pair of stained pants belonging to Hagerty, Multnomah County District Attorney Michael Schrunk said Friday there was no basis for prosecution.
