Didn't Benjamin Franklin have a child in illegitimacy too?
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....
Thanks for the verify. It does not change the fact that Franklin was a great man. However, the race politics climate being what it is, I can understand the furor over the paternity of Jefferson. It would not make me think less of Jefferson, or stop buying his shirts out of the J.Peterman catalog for that matter.
