Somebody's Karma Just Ran Over Ken Starr


Baylor Removes Ken Starr As President Amid Sexual Assault Scandal

This investigation revealed the University's mishandling of reports in what should have been a supportive, responsive and caring environment for students,” Richard Willis, chair of the Baylor Board of Regents, said in a statement. 

“The depth to which these acts occurred shocked and outraged us. Our students and their families deserve more, and we have committed our full attention to improving our processes, establishing accountability and ensuring appropriate actions are taken to support former, current and future students.” 

 In the statement about the removal of Starr and Briles, the board of regents summarized findings from an outside investigation into the how university officials handled claims of sexual assault. The school had been accused of failing to address claims made by at least six female students that members of the football team had committed sexual assault between 2009 and 2016. 

The investigation found that the university's process for responding to and supporting those who made the claims of sexual assault was inadequate and that university officials "discouraged some complainants from reporting or participating in student conduct processes and in one instance constituted retaliation against a complainant for reporting sexual assault," according to the board of regents. 

 Starr, an attorney known for leading a string of politicized investigations into former President Bill Clinton's administration, will also remain as a law professor at Baylor University.

Today Trump said, “There is one more thing that we have to do to make America wealthy again, and you have to be wealthy in order to be great. I’m sorry to say it…..We’ll build the wall. We’re going to build the wall. Believe me. We’re going to build the wall.”

In Donald Trump’s view greatness only comes with wealth. People who dedicate their lives to helping others for low pay aren’t great. Public servants who risk their lives as police officers, firefighters, or serving in the military aren’t great. To Trump, greatness is defined by the size of your bank account.

Well, Shaw, we know that none of the derps at the Daddy blog will ever be great!

PP, What does that have to do with the topic? I would get castigated for not staying on topic.
Now about the topic. Never trust someone who thinks dancing while single is a sin and alcohol is poison.
