Chelsea Clinton may be in a lot of trouble. Her new children’s book, “She Persisted” has been lovingly welcomed by many in the media circle, but a claim has come forward that suggest she may have actually stolen the idea from someone else.
Christopher Kimberley has filed a Federal lawsuit against Clinton claiming that she and Penguin Randomhouse publishers stole his book idea. He claims to have submitted his idea to Penguin long ago and is asking for $150,000 damages plus any profits.
Whether or not Chelsea Clinton is guilty will be decided by the courts, but this should be an easy case to prove or disprove? Either Penguin had contact with Kimberley about a similar book or they did not. Will the Clinton’s close ranks and protect her?
As reported in Young Cons:
In between efforts to raise her profile on social media and receiving glowing laudatory tributes in The Hill, Chelsea wrote a book titled, “She Persisted,” a children’s book about women who persisted through challenges in history.
Except maybe it wasn’t completely her own idea.
Earlier this year, he learned about Clinton’s book. Kimberley said he immediately noticed similarities, specifically from his ‘Quotable Questionnaire’ section.
Kimberley fired off a cease and desist to Clinton and the publisher in April before it hit bookstores. Nevertheless, she continued to promote the book by going on morning shows like The Today Show and The View.
