In his commentary praising Kenneth Starr, Quin Hillyer states that Starr "was thinking legally, not politically" in his investigation of President Bill Clinton.

Hillyer bypasses Starr's later career as president at Baylor University, when he ignored numerous sexual assault claims against members of the football team. As a result, Baylor fired the head football coach, the athletic director, several others in the athletic department and Starr.

At Baylor, Starr was certainly not thinking legally, but politically.
