Ken Starr Death & Cause
Starr died at the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, Texas, from complications from surgery on September 13, 2022, at the age of 76.
“While many will remember Ken Starr for his role in Bill Clinton’s impeachment, I’ll always recall his later work covering up sexual violence as president and chancellor of Baylor,” a tweet by Tim Marchman reads.
Ken Starr is dead. I’ll never forget how he had a woman wear a wire so he could humiliate her friend on national television for giving a blowjob, then got fired from his job as university president when it turned out he’d covered up the football team’s years-long rape spree. RIP
