Claim against Christian Porter is ‘now falling to bits’: Andrew Bolt
Sky News, 4 March 2021
The claim made against Attorney-General Christian Porter is “now falling to bits” as there are already two “factual errors” in what the alleged victim says occurred, according to Sky News host Andrew Bolt.
“By way of introduction, let me say that one of the silliest and [most] dangerous slogans of our time is ‘believe the victim’,” Mr Bolt said.
“This rape, we’re told, occurred in Sydney in January 1988”.
“The material that Porter’s accuser wrote – and which friends sent to some journalists after she killed herself – recalls that just before she was raped that very night, she went dancing with Christian Porter at the Hard Rock Café”.
“The first Hard Rock Café in Sydney, in Darlinghurst, did not open until 1989, April 1989, a full year or more later. This woman’s account, as told by that journalist, is wrong.”
Mr Bolt said he has now found a “second detail” which is “more important”.
