Yep --- the governor of New Jersey. William, though, didn't agree with his dad's politics, and chose to stay loyal to the King. The bastard....

Didn't Jesse Jackass father an illigitimate child? He doesn't get dragged through the mud. Of course, no one really cares...

Yes and that was a real scandal. William Franklin went on to become the last Royal Governor of New Jersey and a notorious opponent of the Revolution.

The script of the musical 1776 has Ben refer to him as the "little bastard."
