Chelsea Clinton Sued For $150K Over Accusations That She Plagiarized Her Children’s Book
Chelsea Clinton has been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit over allegations that her New York Times best-selling book, She Persisted.
“I’m in disbelief,” New York based author, Christopher Janes Kimberley told the New York Post.
“I did months of painstaking research on my book. Her version looks like a ninth-grade homework assignment.”
Chelsea is the daughter of two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton whose most notable legacy includes chasing interns around the Oval Office Resolute Desk and multiple extramarital affairs.
According to the lawsuit, Kimberly submitted a book idea entitled A Heart is the Part That Makes Boys And Girls Smart, in 2013, to the publishing company Penguin Random House.
In it, the author goes through several examples of inspiring female figures throughout history, and includes notable quotes and images.
The New York Author accuses the president of Penguin Young Readers US, Jennifer Loja, of passing his work and ideas on to Chelsea Clinton for her to claim as her own.
Kimberley noticed several instances in which Clinton used material allegedly directly lifted from the submitted work including quotes and images.
Clinton’s title of her book, She Persisted, was a nod to the early 2017 congressional situation in which Elizabeth Warren was stopped from speaking on the Senate floor for persisting in calling Donald Trump’s Attorney General nominee, Jeff Sessions, a racist.
Warren was repeatedly told that she was violating Rule 19 of the Senate, which says that a Senator shall not impute to another Senator “by any form of words” any conduct or motive that is unworthy or unbecoming of a Senator.
Rather than adhering to the rules, Warren continued attacking Senator Sessions, and, after several minutes, was silenced.
The Left took the rule-breaking and subsequent silencing of the woman who once claimed to be a minority to gain a leg up over her Caucasian peers as a badge of honor.
