276. Yarborough never changed his story
He said he smelled gunpowder in the air. He also maintained the shots came from above his right shoulder. Said that at first, said in until he died, like most witnesses. He was a good friend of JFK's, and he took great joy in pissing off the Democratic Party. He was a tremendous crusader for the people, and never EVER played ball with the government or either party. It eventually cost him his seat, when both parties (Bush with the Repubs and Bensen with the Dems) teamed up to beat him in the primaries in 1970.

Yarborough would have died before he would have covered up one damn thing, especially about the murder of his friend, and especially since a lot of people blamed him for making JFK come to Texas in the first place. You're barking up the wrong tree if you think he was bought off.

He gets misquoted a lot, as do a lot of witnesses.
