'Hillary, please do not deny I exist'
NEW YORK – Danney Williams, 30, has been trying since at least 1999 to be acknowledged as the out-of-wedlock son of former President Bill Clinton and a black prostitute in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Now, just one month before the presidential election, he has posted a nine-minute video on his Facebook and Twitter pages in a new initiative to establish the legitimacy of his claim.
“I have no doubt that I am Bill Clinton’s son,” Williams declares at the beginning of the new video. “It was common knowledge in Arkansas where I grew up. Everywhere I went, people would point and say, ‘There’s Bill Clinton’s son. He looks like Bill Clinton, doesn’t he? Look at him, Danney Williams is a black Bill Clinton.’”
Documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert, who produced Williams’ new video, also compiled a series of comparison photographs showing the physical resemblance.
