Two years after Al Gore’s shocking announcement that he and his wife of 40 years were separating, he’s got another, younger, woman in his life.
According to the Washington Post’s Reliable Source blog, the former presidential candidate and former VP is dating Elizabeth Keadle, a wealthy Democratic donor and environmental conservationist.
Ms Keadle, who hails from southern California, is in her 50s, and travelled to Antarctica with Mr Gore at the beginning of the year to raise awareness about climate change and global warming, according to the Post.
She and Mr Gore share a deep interest in environmental issues, and donated generously to conservation programs and oceanography studies around her San Diego suburb of Ranchero Santa Fe.
Ms Keadle, who is known as Liz, also donated heavily to the Democratic party. The Post reports that she and ex-husband Lyle Turner, a biotech entrepreneur, once gave more than $100,000 to a DNC fund.
According to the Huffington Post’s Fundrace, she most recently contributed $5,000 to the Obama Victory Fund, but has frequently given donations to the Democratic party.
