Interview with Senator Ralph Yarborough
QUESTION 8
INTERVIEWER:

TELL ME ABOUT WHAT MADE YOU MAKE THE STATEMENT THAT YOU DID, A VERY FAMOUS STATEMENT.

Senator Ralph Yarborough:

I don't recall. I don't recall, what, what I thought was such an outrage for a governor to send people down there to do that, chief executive officer of the state, and he'd been stomping about what he'd do you know, a lot on the Governor Wallace on television, radio and everything, but when the chips were down, what he did was send troopers with dogs and horses and water hose after defenseless people.
