Portland, Oregon , police have decided to reopen the investigation into a 54-year-old masseuse’s allegations that former Vice President Al Gore sexually assaulted her in his hotel room in 2006.
“The Portland Police Bureau has made the decision to re-open the case regarding the allegations brought forward against Mr. Al Gore,” a statement posted on the Portland Police Bureau’s website this evening said.
“Consistent with our policy regarding open investigations, the Police Bureau will not be commenting on any additional specifics regarding this case at this time,” it said.

A family spokeswoman said today that the Gores welcomed the new investigation.
“Further investigation into this matter will only benefit Mr. Gore,” Kalee Kreider said. “The Gores cannot comment on every defamatory, misleading, and inaccurate story generated by tabloids. Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago. He stands by that denial.”
The allegations surfaced last week, when the National Enquirer reported on the story, but on June 23 authorities in Portland said they had investigated the woman’s complaints and that the case was closed for insufficient evidence.
