Ken Starr supports Sotomayor '76 nomination

He is famous (infamous, some would say) for his investigation of the last Democratic president, but former independent counsel Kenneth Starr is backing the Supreme Court nominee of the current Democratic commander-in-chief.

On Thursday, Starr said he "thinks very well" of Sonia Sotomayor '76 and "supported the nomination" after a speech in LA, according to the Washington Post.

Starr, who is dean of Pepperdine University Law School, has served as a federal appeals court judge and U.S. solicitor general. Then he investigated Bill Clinton's dealings in Whitewater and his relationship with Monica investigation that eventually got the former president impeached.
