The Sexual Harassment Charges Against Al Gore Have Been Dropped

The crazed sex poodle got away with it!!!

Gore introduced her to an inconvenient erection. (thanks to Joel McHale for the joke).

I'm shocked at this turn of events.

Ok, not really.

And another thing, polygraphs are bullshit.

The mind boggles that in any other SLOG post where a middle aged heterosexual male with high office was accused of sexual impropriety with a female would be guilty no matter what the evidence and then there would be 4 or 5 more posts about how all "Men" are evil deviants that oppress the mostly good other people of the world night and day.

Yet, somehow, Al Gore escapes The Agenda Treatment.

Go figure.

Except that doesn't happen, Mr. Universe. Not on slog anyways. You are talking about the haunts of Dan Savage. The only time he or we ever get all crazy is when politicians who have a history of putting themselves on a sexual/marital pedestal end up major hypocrites who are guilty of everything they made their political career off by vilifying. Or if the accusations of sexual harassment are proven to have grounds. This case had neither factor- so we honestly don't care about one massage therapist's attempt at fame.

RAPE IS ALWAYS RAPE THIS IS INJUSTICE THERES YOUR INCONVENIENT TRUTH!!!

Polygraphs ARE BS,,, and why would there be "DNA evidence" on the pants she was wearing when he propositioned her?
Obviously it was always a case of "she said / he said".

Ah, CR @ 7 beat me to it.

There's a reason polygraphs aren't admissible in court.

Eh. Now you guys know my first name.

@4: He's not been railing against perceived "sexual immorality" in today's culture like so many others (read: stuffy Republicans) have been, so we figured to give him the benefit of the doubt. Being rabidly sex-negative or homophobic is usually a tell, but we didn't see it with Al.

Bitch @6: This wasn't a rape, you stupid fucking dumbass. But thanks for playing Slog anyway.

As always, succinct and to the point Mr. 5280. Thanks for pointing that out.

FUCK YOU YOU SICK FUCK I FEEL SORRY FOR ANY WOMAN WHO HAS TO INTERACT WITH YOU. I HOPE YOUR PATHETIC LITTLE COCK FALLS OFF YOUR FAT FUCKING BODY YOU FUCKING PIG

Good thing Gore's off-the-record insistence that he invented sexual harassment isn't admissible in court.

Polygraph? What? I mean, I didn't particularly believe her because of her unwillingness to meet with police when it happened (made appointments and didn't show, and then eventually said she'd handle it with a civil suit), but who uses a polygraph to decide whether to continue a trial? Maybe next week they'll consult a Ouija board to find a murderer.

@12: OH YES I LIKE IT LIKE THAT RAEGPOST MORE YOU RIGHTEOUS BITCH MOAR MOAR MOAR RAEGPOST!!!

@7,

She was the one pushing the idea that the stains on her pants might have been DNA. The lack of DNA kind of hurts her credibility.

16: In that case, it's a fair call to cast doubt on her story.
Does that mean she was implying she actually gave him a handjob? Can his alleged statement be considered verbal sexual harassment if they resulted in sex taking place?
