This, of course, proves that climate change is a hoax:
The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office confirmed today that a woman who alleged unwanted sexual contact by Al Gore reported it to police in 2006, and the prosecutor’s office was briefed by the Portland Police Bureau in late 2006 and January 2007.... Today, as the National Enquirer reported that it had interviewed a Portland masseuse who complained of unwanted sexual contact by the former vice president at the Hotel Lucia on Oct. 24, 2006, the district attorney’s office was notified that the Portland Police Bureau had conducted a further investigation of the allegation in 2009.
The woman hasn't made herself available to the police for interviews, said she was going to file a civil suit, didn't file one, and then...
In January 2009, the woman returned to Portland police and said she wanted to give a statement. Detective Molly Daul and a victim advocate from the sexual assault unit met with the woman. She reported that she was repeatedly subjected to unwanted sexual touching while in his presence. She reported she still had clothes that she had worn during the encounter, but detectives never collected them as evidecne "because they did not feel there was any evidentiary value to the clothing" given the description of what she said had occurred.
After interviewing the woman, the Police Bureau provided additional counseling services through its victim advocate program. The case was not investigated further "because detectives concluded there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations. In June 2010, the woman called police, asked for a copy of her statement, and asked if she could edit it. She also advised the bureau she was going to take the case to the media.
This news—along with the fact it's probably snowing somewhere right now—proves that Al Gore can't be trusted and that climate change is a hoax.
