Anon. Gore Friend To WaPo: Portland Massage Occurred 'Without Incident'

Newscom / ny1

According to a source friendly with the Gores, Al Gore confirmed that he received a therapeutic massage in his hotel room that night, and likely from the therapist making the accusation. But, the source said, Gore remembers getting a massage without incident and the therapist leaving on good terms.

So there you have it. Gore has "confirmed" -- it's not entirely clear to whom, though presumably the anonymous source -- that he got a massage "without incident" and he and the therapist left "on good terms."

We asked Gore's official spokeswoman if this is indeed the vice president's version of things and she declined to comment.
