Ever heard there is no honor among thieves?

. . . . . lawsuit claims Al Gore was "adamant" about not selling his network to oil-rich Qataris but had a "change of heart," then stiffed the man who came up with the idea for the deal.

SAN FRANCISCO A television consultant claims that former Vice President Al Gore and others at Current TV stole his idea to sell the struggling network to Al-Jazeera.

Los Angeles resident John Terenzio is demanding more than $5 million in a lawsuit quietly filed in San Francisco Superior Court Tuesday

Terenzio alleges he first brought the idea of the Qatar-owned Al-Jazeera's purchase of Current TV to board member Richard Blum in July, and he expected to be paid if his plan was used. The lawsuit claims Blum was open to the plan, which Terenzio laid out with a detailed PowerPoint presentation but feared Gore would find such a deal with the oil-rich government of Qatar "politically unappealing."

Terenzio claims he presented to Blum "a step-by-step approach for making the sale of the liberal media outlet to Al-Jazeera palatable to U.S. lawmakers, pro-Israel factions, cable operators and, most importantly, the American public."

Terenzio said Al-Jazeera's January announcement of the sale was the first he heard of it.

The sale to Al Jazeera has links to Senator Diana Feinstein, Democrat.

Seems Fat Albert wasn't the only politician profiting from the sell-out to al-jazeera.
