A new lawsuit claims that Chelsea Clinton has known that parts of her children’s book were plagiarized from another work, nevertheless, she decided to publish it.
New York Post reported, that Albany, New York-based author Christopher Janes Kimberley claims that parts of “She Persisted,” were stolen from a pitch for his proposed book, “A Heart is the Part That Makes Boys And Girls Smart.”
The lawsuit was filed last Thursday in the Southern District of New York Court, Kimberley, 56, claims that he sent a pitch for his book to Jennifer Loja, president of Penguin Young Readers, back in May of 2013.
The book had quotes from female leaders; and at least three of the same quotes from the leaders, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman and Nellie Bly, are now in Clinton’s book. In his suit, Kimberley claimed that Loja presented the idea to Clinton, and she later used it for her book.
U.K. Daily Mail reported, that Kimberly had also issued a cease-and-desist order to Penguin in April, before the publishing day May 30.
The suit points out that “She Persisted” chronicles “13 American Women Who Changed the World” and says it’s an “unauthorized reproduction of (Kimberly’s) work.”
“The appearance of impropriety is striking,” it adds.
In an interview with the Post, Kimberley said, “I did months of painstaking research on my book. Her version looks like a ninth-grade homework assignment, I am in disbelief.”
The whole concept of the book is based on the flimsy premise of a turn of phrase from Mitch McConnell, a phrase which Democrats hide behind.
And it’s not surprising that the book isn’t original, to publish a book in three months is nearly impossible.
Kimberley wants $150,000 in damages, and that would be a problem for Chelsea since we know that the Clinton Foundation has enough money for everything.
