(Newser) – A Vancouver man is claiming he's John F. Kennedy's son and he wants the Kennedy clan to supply some DNA so he can prove it. Jack Worthington was born on November 22, 1961—exactly two years before JFK was assassinated in Dallas. The alleged presidential love child says his Texan mother was introduced to JFK by Lyndon Johnson during the first year of the Kennedy presidency.

Senator Ted Kennedy is apparently trying to block a story about Worthington's claims slated for Vanity Fair, reports the New York Post. "It's a profound duty I feel to do the right thing. Many Americans won't agree and will want to sweep the dirt under the rug," Worthington told Canada's Globe & Mail. Worthington, a US citizen married to a Canadian, said that he's happy with his life and doesn't want things to change.
