Former Vice President Al Gore has been exiled from the Democratic National Convention.
Gore will be in New York when Barack Obama accepts his reelection bid in North Carolina. He will be covering the festivities for Current TV, the seldom-viewed liberal television network that he helped found in 2005, according to Politico.
Gore will be leading Current TV’s coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Coverage of the Republican National Convention (RNC) begins August 27 from 7pm–11pm EST and will continue for all four nights, concluding on August 30th. Coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) begins on September 4 from 7pm–11pm EST and will conclude on September 6.
He will be joined by several other fallen Democratic stars, including disgraced New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who resigned from office after being caught up in a high-end prostitution scandal.
