Enquirer Didn't Pay for Gore Sex Story

Posted by Stefan Kamph on Fri, Jun 25, 2010 at 10:14 AM

Those darn freedom-of-information laws can get in the way when you're trying to make a buck. According to this story in the Wall Street Journal, the massage therapist who accused Al Gore of molesting her in 2006 offered her story to the National Enquirer this month for a price of $1 million.

Barry Levine said in an interview Thursday that the woman offered to sell her account through her lawyer but that "no money exchanged hands" and the paper conducted only a brief interview with her.

So, presumably, she offered to sell the Enquirer a copy of the (publicly available) police report for a million bucks, and they declined. Then they bee-lined it back to the office, called up the Portland Police Bureau and made a public records request... and the rest is history.

God, I love public records.
