During a Capitol forum on radical Islamic terrorism, former state Rep. Molly White, R-Belton, called a political reporter a “low-life son of a bitch” for asking a Republican lawmaker whether there would be any upcoming legislative forums regarding threats posed by radical Christianity and Judaism.

The exchange between White and Max Gorden from Spectrum News happened after the conclusion of a Homeland Security Forum hosted by freshman state Rep. Kyle Biedermann, R-Fredericksburg, where invited speakers gave testimony on the dangers posed by radical Muslim organizations.

After the forum had ended, Biedermann spoke to reporters alongside two of the guest speakers.

Gordon attempted to ask the legislator whether he would be planning any forums on radicalism seen in other faiths, but Biedermann largely ignored him as others began to yell insults and criticize Gorden for having asked the question.

Shortly after, Gorden sent out a tweet with White on video yelling at him for asking the question.

“How you dare you say that, you low-life son of a bitch,” White said in the video.

White, who was elected in 2014 and served one term, came under fire two years ago for asking visitors to her district office to sign a pledge of allegiance to the U.S. during Texas Muslim Capitol Day, when Muslims come to the Capitol to visit and discuss legislation with their local representatives.
