Police have reopened an investigation into a claim by a Portland masseuse that former Vice President Al Gore made "unwanted sexual contact" with her in a hotel room in 2006 — an accusation Gore "unequivocally and emphatically" denies.
Police did not say why they are reopening the investigation. They previously closed it due what they said was insufficient evidence.

Former Vice President Al Gore was accused of "unwanted sexual contact" by an unidentified woman in Portland, Ore., in 2006, according to local law-enforcement officials, although no criminal charges were filed.
A lawyer representing the woman contacted Portland police in late 2006, according to the office of Multnomah County District Attorney Michael D. Schrunk. However, the woman refused to be interviewed by authorities and said she did not want to pursue a criminal case against Gore.
The woman declined to participate in a criminal investigation because...

Al Gore took his message to Saturday Night Live for NBC's "Green Week," joking that he had a "backup plan" and zinging the network for the patronizing opportunity to let him appear once a year — "like Punxsutawny Phil."
NBC is holding its annual "Green Week" Nov. 15-22.
Al Gore will make his second appearance in a green-centric story line on 30 Rock, where Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) must ask the T.G.S. staff to reduce its carbon footprint. Kenneth the page is put in charge of making sure the staff sticks to their goal.

She said they've published green production guides for TV and film hoping they will encourage a more eco-friendly industry.

Question: I don't imagine Saturday Night Live is on your radar, but I'm still a big fan of the show and rarely miss it. (Thank heaven for my DVR, which allows me to record the show and zip past the lamer sketches and lousy musical guests.) The last couple of years I've noticed a trend that's starting to irk me, and I'll use last week's show with Brian Williams as an example. He was a terrific host. The first two sketches he appeared in were hilarious (as a firefighter with a spot-on "New Yawk" accent and an underwhelmed Publishers Clearing House winner), but the rest of the night he only played "himself." Admittedly, he got off a great one-liner in the sketch about the Democratic debate: "The media's decided we just like Hillary better," or words to that effect. But I've noticed that almost every week now, the guest host is reduced to playing him- or herself in a preponderance of the sketches. Perhaps this technique works when the host is a nonperformer (say, Al Gore or Derek Jeter), ...
