Irony: Sex assault scandal does in Kenneth Starr
Former special prosecutor in the Clinton sex scandal case and former Baylor University president Kenneth Starr is leaving the college after accusations of not acting quickly enough to deal with sexual assaults on campus.
Starr rose to national prominence in the mid-1990s for his exhaustive investigation of sex scandals surrounding then-President Bill Clinton.
He was removed as President of Baylor in May, after an independent report found administrators had mishandled sexual abuse cases involving football players. In June, he resigned as chancellor, but stayed on as law professor.
His law professor job was his remaining position at Baylor, the world’s largest Baptist university.
The investigation found that actions by Baylor administrators directly discouraged students from reporting sexual assaults.
