Yes, but, he's only "suspect" *because* he has the right DNA. Rather
than admit that the result supports the pre-test hypothesis it was
designed to test (the paternity of Thomas Jefferson), the "Official"
Jeffersons have developed a new theory, based on their unwillingness
to accept that Jefferson fathered children upon one of his slaves,
and their unwillingness to let black folk be buried in the family
