RUSH: This from Byron York: ‘The allegation that Al Gore sexually assaulted a woman in a Portland, Ore., hotel room nearly four years ago has dealt a serious blow to the former vice president’s story that he and wife Tipper simply ‘grew apart’ after 40 years of marriage. The police report of the masseuse’s complaint is 73 pages long and extremely detailed. According to the document, she got a call from the front desk of the trendy Hotel Lucia on the night of Oct. 24, 2006. The hotel had a special guest. Could she come at 10:30 p.m.? She went to Gore’s room carrying a folding massage table and other equipment. Gore, whom she had never met, greeted her with a warm embrace. ‘The hug went on a bit long, and I was taken just a bit aback by it,’ the masseuse told police. But she went along because Gore ‘was a VIP and a powerful individual and the Hotel Lucia had made it clear to me by inference that they were giving him ‘the royal treatment.’
‘Gore said he was tired from travel and described in detail the massage he wanted.’ Are you ready for this, folks? ‘It included work on the adductor muscles…’ Do you know where the adductor muscles are? Dawn, do you happen to know where the adductor muscles are? (interruption) Well, you work out. Do you know where they are? (interruption) Brian, do you have any idea? (interruption) No, they’re not the abs. Close. They are ‘on the inside of the thighs.’ Think groin. ‘It included work on the adductor muscles, which are on the inside of the thighs. ‘I mentally noted that a request for adductor work is a bit unusual,’ the masseuse told police, because it can be ‘a precursor to inappropriate behavior by a male client.’ Gore also requested work on his abdomen. When that began, ‘He became somewhat vocal with muffled moans, etc.,’ the masseuse recounted.
‘Gore then ‘demand[ed] that I go lower.’ When she remained focused on a ‘safe, nonsexual’ area, Gore grew ‘angry, becoming verbally sharp and loud.” I’m still on the first page of this. We have a page and a half to go. ‘The masseuse asked Gore what he wanted. ‘He grabbed my right hand, shoved it down under the sheet to his pubic hair area, my fingers brushing against his [privates],’ she recalled, ‘and said to me, ‘There!’ in a very sharp, loud, angry-sounding tone.’ When she pulled back, Gore ‘angrily raged’ and ‘bellowed’ at her. Then, abruptly, [Algore] changed tone. It was ‘as though he had very suddenly switched personalities,’ she recalled, ‘and began in a pleading tone, pleading for release of his second chakra there.’
”Chakra,’ in Gore’s new-agey jargon, refers to the body’s ‘energy centers,’ which the masseuse interpreted as having a specific meaning. ‘This was yet another euphemism for sexual activity he was requesting,’ she told police, ‘put cleverly as though it were a spiritual request or something.’ She wanted to end the session, but Gore ‘wrapped me in an inescapable embrace’ and ‘caressed my back and buttocks and [other things].’ She tried to get away — in the process calling Gore a ‘crazed sex poodle’ — but the former vice president was too strong for her. A little later, she said, Gore produced a bottle of brandy and mentioned there were condoms in the ‘treat box’ provided by the hotel.’ Oh! We stayed in a hotel in the Minneapolis area on Saturday night, and were going through the mini-bar and found the ‘intimacy kit.’ Have you ever heard…? It’s 12 bucks.
Do you know what the intimacy kit is? I’ve never seen this before. Oh-ho! I said to Kathryn, ‘Do not open that. Whatever you do, do not open it.’ (laughing) It was in the refrigerator of the mini-bar. The intimacy kit. It was a couple of condoms and some other things in there. (interruption) Weeeeeeell, use your imagination. (interruption) Look, it’s lunchtime on the east coast and this is a family show. I’m… (interruption) Well, lubricants. Okay, just pure and simple. There were no pills, nothing like that. It was just two condoms, a couple of cigarettes, book of matches. (interruption) No toys. No, it came like a silver tin you might get some chewing tobacco in, or it was about that size, a silver tin that might be had breath mints in it.
The intimacy kit. Apparently there was one of those in Algore’s hotel room. (interruption) Yeah. Where was it? The treat box. ‘A little later, she said, Gore produced a bottle of brandy and mentioned there were condoms in the ‘treat box’ provided by the hotel. ‘He then forced an open mouth kiss on me,’ she said. At that moment…’ I’m still not halfway through the second page of this. ‘At that moment, the masseuse brought up Gore’s long marriage. ‘How do you rectify [sic] this with your wife?’ she asked. That brought on another ‘quick shift’ in Gore’s mood. ‘I never saw anybody’s moods just go like this,’ the masseuse told police, snapping her fingers. The accuser said Gore maneuvered her into the bedroom. His iPod docking station was there, he told her, and he wanted her to listen to ‘Dear Mr. President,’ a lachrymose attack on George W. Bush by the singer Pink [Alecia Beth Moore].’ That was his romantic I can foreplay tune! And I haven’t even gotten to the good stuff yet.
RUSH: All right, Algore ‘produced a bottle of brandy and mentioned there were condoms in the ‘treat box,” as opposed to lockbox. There was no lockbox. It was a ”treat box’ provided by the hotel.’ Anyway, the masseuse goes on to describe Algore’s sexual advances. Here’s the real funny part of this: He turned on this song, his foreplay tune on his iPod docking station… ”Dear Mr. President,’ a lachrymose attack on George W. Bush by the singer Pink. [Alecia Beth Moore]. ‘As soon as he had it playing, he turned to me and immediately flipped me flat on my back and threw his whole body face down over atop of me,’ she said. ‘I was just shocked at his craziness.” Now, look if you get a phone call at 10:30 at night… You’re a massage therapist, you get a phone call at 10:30 from a hotel saying, ‘Hey, it’s big. It’s 500 bucks,’ what do you think you’re showing up…?
‘Finally she got away. Later, she talked to friends, liberals like herself, who advised against telling police
Well, maybe I shouldn’t say that. At any rate, ‘Finally she got away,’ and this is the funny party. She got away from it and ‘Later, she talked to friends, liberals like herself…’ She asked her liberal friends what she should do. Her liberal friends… I kid you not; this is in the police report. The massage therapist’s liberal friends ‘advised against telling police. One asked her ‘to just suck it up; otherwise, the world’s going to be destroyed from global warming.” If you go turn Gore in, all efforts to stop… I’m not kidding you! This is what she told the police. Her liberal friends said: Look, the guy made advances on you, it’s no big deal. Look, you gotta give him a pass on this, otherwise we’ll all be destroyed from global warming. ‘She got a lawyer and made an appointment to talk with authorities. She canceled and did not tell police until January 2009…’ Now, contrast this. The New York Times has not reported directly on the Algore story. They just ran the AP story back on the 23rd. They have not surrounded it in their patented fashion. But contrast that. Cast your mind back. Remember that front-page, above-the-fold coverage they gave to the thinnest of innuendos about McCain having an affair back during the campaign? And they didn’t do anything on John Edwards. I just… (laughing) ‘Don’t report him! Why, the world’s going to be destroyed from global warming if you do that.’
