For about 18 months Vanity Fair has been researching a story about a Vancouver man who claims to be the son of President John Kennedy. At the request of Senator Kennedy, they have held off publication temporarily.

Now the man, Jack Worthington, 46, has discussed his claims with The Globe and Mail. He says his mother’s family, living in Texas, did political work for Lyndon Johnson, Kennedy’s vice-president. He says Johnson introduced his mother to Kennedy.

Jack Worthington says he has no interest in hitting the Kennedys up for money. All he wants is that the Kennedy family provide DNA samples so tests could be run to see if there is a match.

There are some remarkable coincidences in this case: The President was assassinated on young Jack Worthington’s second birthday – in Texas where the Worthingtons lived. And those who have seen him remark on his striking resemblance to Mr. Kennedy.

Do you think it likely that President Kennedy (among his many affairs) sired a son now living in Vancouver?

    Of course it’s possible. Whether or not it’s true remains to be seen.

    The more the Kennedy family stalls on providing DNA, the closer the rumor comes to being taken as fact. If I were Ted, I’d arrive with a bunch of lawyers, have him sign waivers, and get on with it.

    Let’s have that DNA test.

    Considering it’s well known that J.F.K. was somewhat of a ladies man, there is the strongest possibility that the story is true. Like everyone says, time to get the D.N.A. test done.

    Do the DNA test. Everybody knows JFK was, ahem, very friendly. Nobody cares if he has more kids running around.

    Do the test, write the story, let it die a natural death. There’s more important things to worry about than something from 46 years ago.
