The growing controversy over accusations of sexual misconduct against former Vice President Al Gore requires some rational thought and analysis!
Gore has been accused of what The National Enquirer terms to be misbehavior on the level of a “sexual predator” and a “pervert”! 🙁
This whole reported “scandal” reeks of questionable veracity, and makes no sense! 🙁
Is it possible that Al Gore may have “cheated” on his wife, thus causing the recent decision for the couple, married 40 years, to seek a divorce? YES, that certainly is possible, but to believe that any such “cheating” was by aggressive sexual assault, rather than consensual, is VERY hard to believe! 🙁
Why would Al Gore risk using violence and committing a criminal act? What would drive him to such reckless behavior? 🙁
This is not John Edwards, correctly exposed by The National Enquirer, in a consensual sexual affair! This is not Bill Clinton, involved in a similar consensual affair with Monica Lewinsky! This is not Clinton suggesting to Paula Jones that she commit a sexual act, but stopping at the suggestion!
All the above is believable, and reality, but Al Gore being brutal and boorish with a 50 year old massage therapist of ordinary looks, as compared to much younger women with Edwards and Clinton, is beyond understanding!
The question arises why it took four years for this to come out, and why when it was first reported at the time and again investigated last year by the Portland, Oregon police, that it was dismissed as not serious! 🙁
And why did this woman want a million dollars to tell her story to the National Enquirer, which they refused to do? If she wanted money, especially of that large amount, does it not have to make one doubt the veracity of her claims? 🙁
Is it new that there are women who love to create stories and blackmail famous public figures, either for consensual affairs or because they conjure up such events for the almighty dollar? 🙁
Does this woman have any credibility? The answer is ABSOLUTELY NONE, but meanwhile public figures have their reputations dragged through the mud in a disgraceful manner! 🙁
And while there is not yet any proof, could not one imagine that right wing media could be creating this whole story to defame Al Gore, and help to undermine his leadership of those who advocate environmental action to combat climate change and global warming? Does not this “scandal” in their minds help to undermine a cause that they despise?
It is not beyond possibility that a conspiracy is involved in this matter, and hopefully if so, it will be revealed, and Al Gore will be able to clear his name!
If indeed Al Gore did what he is accused of doing, there is no justification or defense of it, and he should pay the penalty, whatever it is!
But if that were so, it would be a shock to all his fans who mourned with him over his loss of the Presidency in 2000, and his courageous leadership on the environment!
The author and many others are hoping the truth will soon come out, and that it will set Al Gore free from such allegations!
