Porter resigned this week after his ex-wives' allegations became public.(The White House/Toronto Star)The defence continued even after Porter announced his resignation on Wednesday.The campaign asks everyone — men and women across America — to make a personal commitment to step off the sidelines and be part of the solution to campus sexual assault.
But Politico reported that the White House arranged an off-the-record briefing for Porter to defend himself to top reporters on Wednesday, the day after the story broke, and even after Holderness released the photo of her black eye.Porter has denied all of the allegations, calling them a “co-ordinated smear campaign.”How did the White House respond to the allegations?
