An awkward TV interview posted this week by a Waco TV station shows former Baylor University president Ken Starr offering multiple answers to a question about his knowledge of a student’s rape allegation.

In a series of interviews and statements after being ousted as president and resigning as chancellor of Baylor, Starr has repeatedly said that he didn’t know about allegations of rape against students and football players until the fall of 2015, when player Sam Ukwuachu was convicted of sexual assault.

But questions have been raised about whether Starr responded to concerns from other students after Ukwuachu’s case came to light. During an interview with CBS Waco affiliate KWTX, Starr was asked about a November e-mail from a former student with the subject line “I was raped at Baylor.” Starr at first said he didn’t know if he received it. He was then interrupted by his public relations adviser Merrie Spaeth. Starr then answered the question two more times, each time differently. Watch the video below:
