Her facts are a little off on Jefferson

Sally hemming was probably about 16, not 13, when she and jefferson connected in Paris. Jefferson was a widower by then, and it was not uncommon at all for Rich Men to take younger "concubines", Interestingly She would have been able to stay in france and be free, but chose instead a life with the wealthy and powerful Jefferson. About the same age difference as Dennis Kucinich and his current wife. Also it was common to marry in the teen years in those days because most people would live much past 50. There are other examples of young women using sex to gain advantage from powerful, wealthy men.

Of course the liberals all want to forgive modern day lovers of teenage girls, like Roman Polansky, Rob Lowe, and a few others.
