Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 18
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU SEND COLONEL LINGO INTO BIRMINGHAM AT BULL CONNORS REQUEST?

Gov. George C. Wallace:

No, no, not at Bull Connor's request at all, in fact I never talked to Bull Connor a time in that, during that time at all. The only people I talked to was the mayor, was the sheriff up there, and uh, frankly at that time he didn't think he needed him and uh, and I don't know that I asked him to send them or not, but I didn't, did not have any conversation with Bull Connor. Bull was a personal friend of mine but I didn't agree with his tactics there uh, in Birmingham.
