    because it's been proven, through DNA, that Thomas Jefferson did boink his slave Sally Hemmings, and they they have descendants along with his descendants from his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson.

      George Jefferson once claimed he was a descendant of Thomas.

      I thought the closest they could prove was that "a" Jefferson fathered children with Hemmings, but that it wasn't conclusive that it was Thos. Jefferson. I think there's a strong inference to that effect, but I thought it was open to debate.

        that evidence together with a ton of circumstantial evidence from the time makes a very compelling case.
