Washington DC - (ReuterUs): New York Senator Hillary Clinton has waded into the Al Sharpton slavery controversy by telling friends that she herself was a slave of the controversial Democrat segregationist turncoat senator Strom Thurmond and bore him a love-child as a condition of her eventual emancipation.
That love-child is believed to have been either Anna Nicole Smith or Britney Spears or even Jade Goody: "It may have been triplets, sure, but it was so long ago the details seem a bit blurred."
The news has further stirred up the raging controversy in the Democrat Party which has begun to tear itself into shreds with this weekend's news that the Reverend Al Sharpton's family were enslaved by the Thurmond clan back in the 19th and 20th centuries.
"The story of Hillary and of Thurmond is the story of the shame and the glory of America", said a Hillary 2008 campaign spokesman.
In 1957 Thurmond used a 24-hour filibuster to stop the Senate questioning him about his relationship with Hillary which has remained under tight wraps ever since.
Al Sharpton is 69.
