The Jefferson decendants have done a disservice to this country and to the memory of Jefferson.
They have now mainstremed the idea that Jefferson raped his slaves and even had relations with a married slave when he was in his seventies.
The DNA evidence did not prove anything new about Thomas Jefferson. It only concluded that a Jefferson was the father of Sally Hemmings last son. Given Jefferson's advanced age and the fact that his nephews were around, I would say that there were more likely candidates.

Given Jefferson's advanced age ...
So, are you saying that the evidence wouldn't have "stood up" in Court? ;-)
