An investigation into an alleged sexual assault by former Vice President Al Gore will be reopened by Portland, Oregon police, the New York Post reports.
The Portland police department issued a statement saying it wouldn’t comment on any additional specifics of the case. The alleged assault involves a massage therapist named Molly Hagerty, 54, whose identity was made public by an interview published in the National Enquirer.
She tells the tabloid that she has both hotel video surveillance and DNA evidence to support her claims. Gore, who is also a founder of Current TV, "unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago. He stands by that denial," said family spokesperson Kalee Kreider, according to People.com. She said that investigation into the allegations "will only benefit Mr. Gore."
