FLASHBACK to JUNE 8, 1999: Governor Kirk Fordice tells WLBT’s Bert Case, “I’ll whip your ass,”

FLASHBACK to JUNE 8, 1999: Governor Kirk Fordice tells WLBT’s Bert Case, “I’ll whip your ass,” when Bert asks the governor about his ongoing relationship with a woman who was not the First Lady. Fordice later divorced the First Lady and married the other woman. After that marriage also ended, the Fordices reconciled, and Pat Fordice was at her former husband's side when he died of cancer in 2004. At the time of this confrontation, however, the governor’s reaction to Bert’s questioning was played and replayed on TV and radio stations across the world.
