AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A full-page newspaper ad thanks Ken Starr for his “exceptional care for students” following his removal as Baylor University president over the school’s handling of sexual assault complaints against football players.

The color advertisement in Sunday’s Austin American-Statesman is signed by seven Baylor supporters and urges readers to “commend Judge Starr” at the website ThankKenStarr.com.

The former prosecutor who led the investigation of the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal resigned as chancellor at Baylor last week. He has said he didn’t know about the allegations involving Baylor football players until media reports first surfaced in 2015 during a player’s trial.

The ad thanks Starr for his “integrity” and “leadership” and elevating Baylor in academics and athletics. The signed supporters include wealthy donors whose names appear on buildings around campus.
