On Monday, Al Gore was cleared of sexual harassment charges. Massage therapist Molly Hagerty claimed that the almost-prez was “a crazed sex poodle” who made “unwanted sexual contact” with her in an upscale Portland hotel room in 2006. But after Hagerty failed a lie detector test and forensic evidence turned up, well, nothing, the judge let Gore off the hook.
Although this is pretty embarrassing, Gore is actually (sort of) in good company. After the jump, check out a few more celebs who were accused and cleared of sexual harassment. Congrats, fellas.
- In April 2009, an employee of West Coast Choppers sued Jesse James for making “sexually offensive contact with her breasts” and making her have “sexually offensive contact with his sexual organ.” James and his “sexual organ” counter-sued for fraud and the judge dismissed both cases, probably because they couldn’t keep a straight face in court.

- Sean Kingston was sued for allegedly taking advantage of a girl at one of his post-concert parties. But police dismissed the case because there wasn’t enough evidence.
- Steven Seagal’s former assistant, Kayden Nguyen, sued him for sexual harassment and sex trafficking. She alleged that Seagal traveled with her and two Russian women, forcing the gals to fulfill all his sexual needs. Those are some pretty outrageous claims so we weren’t surprised when the case was dropped.
- “The Hills” creator Adam DiVello got slapped with a sexual harassment charge after Heidi Montag alleged that he groped her during a photo shoot. But with big names like MTV and Lauren Conrad standing by DiVello, Montag dropped the case. Shocker.[Anything Hollywood]
