I don’t think anything has made me smirk any more than this news.
Ken Starr, of Clinton impeachment fame, is being made the fall guy for the criminal acts of Baylor University’s football team. Whoa, rarely do you get to see Queen Karma boink someone on the head with her wand while the whole damn country is watching.
Starr was fired this morning by the Board of Regents as Baylor’s president.
The three dozen members of the Baylor regents board are blaming Starr – not football coach Art Briles – for failed leadership during the ongoing scandal over how the school handled reports of rape and assault made against five BU football players – two of whom (Tevin Elliott and Sam Ukwuachu) were convicted of raping Baylor co-eds, sources close to the situation told HornsDigest.com.
Making a long story short. Baylor hired a new football coach, Art Briles, who was amazing at winning football games but he did it with players who raped coeds.
Baylor won so many games that the university built a new $300 million football stadium. So, you can’t fire the football coach because you’d have a $300 million empty stadium.
They fired Ken Starr instead, which makes my heart happy. Boy Howdy, he had it comin’.
By the way, last week it appears that Starr was trying to apologize for what he did to Clinton. Too little, too late, Ken.
