Some accusers scream lack of credibility from 100 miles away. (See, e.g., the Duke Lacrosse fiasco). Al Gore's accuser has always fit squarely in that category, which is why I'm relieved to see this:
Portland Police and the Multnomah County District Attorney's office have cleared Al Gore of criminal wrongdoing in the sex assault case filed by masseuse Molly Hagerty.
"After evaluating the materials submitted by PPB I have concluded that I agree with the assessment that a sustainable criminal case does not exist," said District Attorney Michael D. Schrunk, in a statement.
. . .
Hagerty failed a polygraph test during the course of the investigation, and there was no DNA evidence on the pants she claimed she wore during the alleged incident, according to investigators.
The Portland police and Moltnomah County District Attorney's office should be saluted for their professional handling of this case.
