Allegations by a 54-year-old Portland massage therapist that Al gore sexually assaulted her was just a "stunt," according to the trickster who claims to have staged the incident at he behest of pro-oil drilling and anti-global warming forces.
"Yes, I did it. I paid the massage gal $15,000 to make up the charges against Al. And I got the money-plus quite a bit more for myself-from BP and other oil interests, said the anonymous source.
"This isn't nothing, though, as far as some of the biggest capers I've pulled," the hoaxer admitted.
"I also spilled a drink on Lindsay Lohan's booze-alert anklet to get her in trouble with the judge, and I used ventriloquist tricks to get Helen Thomas and General McChrystal fired."
