Al Gore...sexual predator?

Is Al Gore a [url=sexual">http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2010/0624101gore1.html][... predator[/][/url] ...or is his accuser lying?  After reading the accuser's police statement, it's hard to tell.

Apparently, a [url=friend">http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/Sex-complaint-against-Gore-is... of the accuser[/url] said she should remain silent and "just suck it up; otherwise, the world's going to be destroyed from global warming." [IMG]http://i34.tinypic.com/11raq06.gif[/IMG]

I'll take that as: "Undecided" as well.

Apparently, the police and the prosecutor's office believe the evidence (the woman's statement) is insufficient to proceed with any charges.  Although, as [url=Maxine">http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2010/06/prosecutor_al_gore_... Bernstein[/url] reported in The Oregonian, the statute of limitations does not run out until 2013.  So, maybe this isn't a dead issue yet.

Sven, what is the purpose of this thread? If there's no evidence that the police consider valid, then your thread title is deliberately misleading and could be construed as baiting.

But, no one (even the police) would say that there's "no evidence".  The woman's testimony is clearly evidence.  The question for the police and prosecutors is to determine if that testimony constitutes sufficient evidence to further investigate and prosecute Gore.

Maysie seriously, you know sven is baiting feminists and environmentalists with this bull shit stuff from 2006, that is from some "smoking gun website" did you have a look around at the place he used to grab this from.

 

You know skdadl says we are edgey here, sure enough we are, cause we have  to put up with smarmy crap like this from sven et al.

 

and it is not that i give a crap about al gore and what he does, but i do give a crap about sven's baiting.

 

he had absolutely no reason to put this National Enquirer crap up other than to bait.

Sites like thesmokinggun and wikileaks play a vital role in exposing information which would not otherwise be known to the public.

Al Gore is no longer a potential presidential candidate.  If he did anything of this nature and were convicted, he'd be a scumbag.  But it isn't political.  And it wouldn't discredit the evidence supporting global warming, which I suspect is your real agenda here. 

This is disgusting, but it isn't political.  And the barely-concealed glee you display about this situation in your posts is deeply unbecoming.

Whatever may have happened in that hotel room, the evidence supporting global warming wouldn't be "discredited" even microscopically.

In fact, if the accusor, as has been reported, supports Gore's political positions on climate change and if she was, therefore, concerned about any adverse impact her accusations may have had on the policies that Gore advocates, then that only lends more credibility to her accusations.

Star Spangled C...

Well, Gore just announced a divorce after 40 years. Who the hell knows what's going on...

Sven, the editor-in-chief of Wikileaks is on the lam for publishing potentialy incriminating material implicating the world's most powerful. The Smoking Gun is a tabloid site which merely gathers sensationalist, already public information in order to titilate and shock its readership. I do not see how the two sites share a common ethic.

It would not surprise me if a powerful and influential man like Gore abused his privilege to rape women, but I see nothing progresive about the link you posted--rather than implicate Gore it seems instead to mock an anonymous woman and carrying larger implications, many of which remind has already pointed out. At babble--perhaps you forget--we discuss topics from a progressive, feminist point of view. It doesn't appear like this thread was opened with that in mind. In the future, please choose your topics and their approach with more care. The moderating staff is getting quite exasperated at your utter lack of ability to do so.

And remind, I understand your frustration, but please allow the moderators to do our jobs. Flag the offending posts and we'll deal with them. Personal attacks complicate the situation, you know?

Closing.
