Ken Starr
Former solicitor general for President George Bush, Starr replaced New York attorney Robert Fiske as independent counsel in August 1994. Though he has had a reputation for fairness, Starr, a Republican, has been buffeted by critics who say he is motivated by politics. Starr may not have helped his image by maintaining private clients with interests opposed to the Clinton Administration, and by addressing conservative groups. The White House has attacked Starr's investigation as a "fishing expedition" with a political agenda. Starr sent 18 boxes containing his report on possible impeachable activities by Clinton to Congress September 9. full story
