Rejecting a Connecticut attorney's request, the Justice Department will not be launching an investigation of Whitewater special counsel Kenneth Starr.
The head of the Justice Department's public integrity section, Lee Radek, said in a Nov. 4 letter that the complaint from attorney Frank Mandanici was carefully reviewed and "we do not intend to present the matter to the grand jury."Mandanici contends that Starr has a conflict of interest because he is being offered a deanship at a Pepperdine University school supported financially by Richard Mellon Scaife, who has spent part of his fortune to press a media campaign against President Clinton.
He says Starr's arrangement violates a federal criminal statute that bars government employees from participating in any matter in which a future employer has a financial interest.
