Starr was asked point blank if he saw an e-mail from a student sent to him and Art Briles saying she’d been raped. “I honestly may have. I’m not denying that I saw it,” Starr told KWTX news. (RELATED: Art Briles’ Daughter Comes Out Swinging Against Baylor And His Critics)
However, the interview was quickly interrupted and Starr was rushed away to discuss the question with an aide. When he returned to the cameras he simply answered the same question by saying, “I honestly have no recollection of seeing such an email and I believe that I would remember seeing such an email. The president of a university gets lots of emails. I don’t even see a lot of the emails that come into the office of the president. I have no recollection.
