Petition Demands Ken Starr Remain Baylor's President

May 26, 2016

Nearly 1,500 people have signed a petition demanding that Kenneth Starr remain president of Baylor University. Facing pressure from the university's Board of Regents, Starr is expected to resign after months of allegations that the university has continuously mishandled sexual assaults committed by football players and other students.

"Ken Starr is a wonderful genuine leader," one Baylor alumna wrote on the petition. "Anyone that has ever met him can say the same and has. No one has gone through life without making mistakes. That does not take away from his heart and his intentions. Ken Starr loves Baylor and the students, so sincerely. I can't and don't want to imagine Baylor without him."
