In February 2008, media reports surfaced about an illegitimate son of JFK found living in Vancouver, Canada, allegedly the result of an affair he had had with a Texas woman. Jack Worthington, who recently revealed his identity to the The Globe and Mail, is requesting a DNA test with one of the relatives to determine whether or not Kennedy was his biological father. He claims to have been conceived about one month after Kennedy's inauguration as President, in February 1961, after his mother was introduced to the President by Vice-President Johnson After these claims became public, Worthington's immediate family issued a press release denying that he was the son of the former president, although Worthington still stuck by his story. Because of a lack of corroborative evidence, Vanity Fair modified its April, 2008 article on this topic, not taking any firm conclusions.
