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?
