The Times Ireland today reports that four men have accused Al Porter, who has a show on Today FM and presents Blind Date on TV3, of being a sex pest. The men allege that Porter grabbed their crotches and/or buttocks. One said that his behaviour is an “open secret” in Irish comedy circles.
I haven’t seen any reference to this story so far on RTE or other news sources. The silence is notable, especially given the blanket coverage given to the much less serious allegations against Michael Colgan or, in a different context, Barry Walsh.
