Mr. Starr’s investigation into President Clinton’s affair with a former White House intern propelled issues of sex and morality to the center of American life for more than a year.

Mr. Starr served as a widely respected appeals court judge and solicitor general projected as a future Supreme Court justice before becoming a lightning rod during the Clinton investigation.

He went on to serve as dean of the Pepperdine University’s law school in California and as president of Baylor University, but was demoted and later resigned from Baylor after an investigation found that the university had mishandled accusations of sexual assault against members of the football team. The investigators rebuked the university leadership, saying it had “created a perception that football was above the rules.”

Mr. Starr also drew criticism for representing the billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein when he was accused of sex crimes against young girls in Florida and eventually made a plea agreement accepting only minor charges and a light sentence.

    No doubt Biden had something to do with Starr's death.

    Donna.

    Your defensiveness is a sign that truth is reaching you. No doubt, it'll take a heavy dose.

    Still, pb says, Don't stop believin'. Re: the song.

    Donna, I'll give Biden credit for the many legislative wins he's had recently and his averting of a rail strike this morning but not quite ready to give him credit for Ken Starr's death.

    Well there you go. You hit the nail on the head, Curt. Biden and the Dems have been on a run of accomplishments. For political reasons, Republicans must not let that stand, hence all of this Biden is to blame for [insert bad thing]. Very predictable. And of course most Republican voters lap it up. Polls show that isn't working outside of the MAGAsphere though.
