…sexual predator?

Update: There’s more.

Police in Portland, Ore., are reopening an investigation over allegations that former Vice President Al Gore fondled a masseuse in a hotel in 2006.

The city’s Police Bureau disclosed the move in a brief statement Wednesday, but did not explain the decision to reopen the investigation. The police said they would not comment further.

Allegations in the case were described by the National Enquirer last week. After the article was published, the Police Bureau said it “does not consider this an ongoing investigation unless new evidence is received in this case.”

The Enquirer followed up with more details this week, stating among other things that the masseuse has hotel video footage and DNA evidence that could be used in the investigation.
