Ken Starr-- Where is he now?

by Bob / November 30, 2004 8:31 AM PST

Ken Starr's name was mentioned in the discussion about Robert Novak and it brought back many painful memories. Being a Clinton Democrat fan from Arkansas, I have special disgusting memories of Ken Starr and his $70 Million witch hunt as THE REPUBLICAN HIT MAN. After wreaking havoc with the lives of many yet-to-be-charged people he moved on to collect one of his many rewards of his taxpayer funded service to the Republican Party: President of Pepperdine College in California. Is it surprising to you that he was Solicitar General for former President George H. W. Bush at one tome? That's the Bush that was defeated by former President Clinton. Being from Arkansas, I saw close-up, the damage done to innocent people. They were innocent then and still are innocent and have never even been charged. One of the most vivid and disgusting cases was that of Susan McDougald. She was imprisoned for 8 months because she would not co-operate and say what Starr wanted her to say. It was always beyond my comprehension how she could be incarserated without being convicted of anything. Along the same lines, Robert Novak was never charged or prosecuted for revealing the name of Wilson's wife, placing her and others in danger. What a crazy world! That is the result of political power. The only ones that could correct such an inequitable situation are the politicians and they aren't going to. Status Quo satisfies them. Where did we lose control of our country?

Why can't you guys tell it the way it was? Susan McDougald;

she wasn't in jail for refusing to say what Ken Starr wanted her to say. She was put there by a judge because she refused to testify under a grant of immunity. She knew that, if she lied, Starr would nail her for perjury, but she also wouldn't tell the truth. Why? I don't know, but a lot of people that told tales on the Clintons had reason to regret their action. He and Hillary had the power to get even.

It's the court system administering the law. The left can't be so flippant about ignoring it.

Dear KP; it is not the left that is intent on restructuring

the Supreme Court and thereby overturning 30 years of rulings and legislation. I think that by the time Susan MacDougald came before Ken "Show me the Semen Stains" Starr his intent was pretty clear. Impariality was not his strength, or even his interest, he used a large hammer at every opportunity as Mrs MacDougald has every reason to know.

I'm not familiar with any well known vendettas carried out by the Clintons other than the fabled murder of Vince Foster, which true believers hammered the clintons with until they found a marginally more credible story in White Water. Oh, and maybe Travelgate which involved firings but not vendettas.

I hate to break this to you Rob, but it IS the left that is

intent of restructuring the Supreme Court. That's one of the reasons they tried so hard to defeat President Bush, and why Teddy Kennedy has used the threat of filibusters to bottle up President Bush's judicial nominations.

As for Starr and the Clintons, you don't seem to have a clue. Perhaps that's because you live in Canada. Susan MacDougald was not put in jail by Ken Starr. She was put in jail by a judge. Starr was named as a Special Prosecutor by the Democrats because he was known for his impartiality.

As far as the Clintons, you've either got your head in the sand with your eyes tightly shut, or your using the standard leftist ploy of denying everything. Bill hit on more women than just Monica Lewinski. One sued him, and another reported threats aimed at insuring her silence. There was also Hillary's instant commodity trading expertise, last minute pardons in exchange for financial contributions, sales of the Lincoln bedroom, Whitewater, Travelgate, the stripping of Air Force One, the removal of items from the White House, and a host of other goodies.
