  • KENNETH STARR: Baylor presidency a squalid final chapter for the former prosecutor.
Mimi Swartz has an op-ed in the New York Times, "Ken Starr's Squalid Second Act," which blisters the pious former Whitewater persecutor for his dereliction as Baylor president during the unfolding scandal of placing athletic success ahead of rape victims.

The conclusion's a killer for those who remember (who could forget) the Starr pursuit of Bill Clinton for sexual indiscretion. It refers to Starr's excuse that he was unaware of the scandal roiling at Baylor.

As for Baylor’s pattern of protecting star athletes who abused women at the university, Mr. Starr claimed he “didn’t know what was happening.” Maybe it depends on what the meaning of the word “was” was.
