Laurie David, the environmentalist-activist, denied on Tuesday a tabloid report that she and Al Gore have been having a two-year affair.

David, the ex-wife of the comedian Larry David, told The Huffington Post that the story in the Star was not true. Other media outlets reported that Gore's friends had also denied the report.

The report in
The Star, not one of America's leading newspapers of record but one that occasionally uncovers the snake under rock, comes shortly after Al and Tipper Gore announced that they are separating after 40 years of marriage.
Laurie David, 52, was a co-producer of Gore's Oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." Her marriage to Larry David, the star of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and creator of "Seinfeld," ended in 2007 after she was linked to the contractor at their Martha's Vineyard home.

"Al Gore is incredibly funny and brilliant and charming. He's like the professor you wished you had in college," Laurie David told The Guardian in 2006.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

Who cares if they had an affair or not. They should not be the topic at every meal every day. Life does go on and fortunately, life will go on after Gore and whom ever he may or may not be involved with. Does the public reall care, I think not.

I knew it!! Men NEVER leave unless there is someone else!! I learned this the hard way after 17 years of marriage. He said he was having a mid life crisis & needed some time to himself. He died of a massive heart attack at the age of 40. His mistress came to the wake like the grieving widow & couldn't wait to tell me she had been with him for 7 years!! So Ladies, you heard it from someone who's been there.

I have no statistics to back up what I am saying but I would think that most often older men like Al Gore get involved with younger women and Laura David is likely around the same age as Tipper . This affair could be true but even if it were true I doubt it would last. It's not any of my business anyway.

Why make two people unhappy, by staying together when, you can make four people happy (if each marries again and are happily married).

I think that the majority of people don't care about a cheating
story or a sex scandal as much as the media does. Most people
don't like to hear these things with elected officials because
they usually run on a honesty moral platform. I believe you people
posting here are a LOT smarter than the media and don't buy the Star.

Mughty men have been felled by a woman's smile and few are impervious to it. The smoke begins to rise and shows there is fire. Let the digging begin!
