Ken Starr, the lawyer who crusaded for years against President Clinton and led the impeachment effort, is now signing up to defend Proposition 8, California’s voter-approved same-sex marriage ban. State Attorney General Jerry Brown is asking the state Supreme Court to overturn the measure, “saying the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage violates basic rights guaranteed in the state Constitution.” A revision — rather than an amendment — to the state Constitution would require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature. The Prop. 8 Legal Defense Fund announced that “Starr will argue the case before the California Supreme Court on behalf of Proposition 8’s official proponents.”
