Looks like Chelsea Clinton may have ripped off an idea for a book from a 56 year old Albany women named Chris Kimberley. Kimberley pitched her idea to the president of Young Readers US and they did not publish her book but passed the idea to Clinton. Clinton's book was published on May 30.


Christopher Janes Kimberley, 56, of Albany, is suing the former first daughter and Penguin Random House for copyright infringement, seeking up to $150,000, according to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in Southern District of New York court.
The little-known writer claims he sent a pitch for his illustrated kids book, “A Heart is the Part That Makes Boys And Girls Smart,” to the president of Penguin Young Readers US, Jennifer Loja, in May 2013, according to the lawsuit.

Instead of publishing it, she passed the idea off to Clinton, who cashed in on his hard work, he claims in court papers.




3 of the same quotes from inspiring women and the appearance of impropriety is striking, says the law suit.


“She Persisted,” published May 30, features at least three of the same quotes from inspiring historical women — including Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman and Nellie Bly — that appear in Kimberley’s book, along with similar images, the writer claims.

Clinton’s book centers on “13 American Women Who Changed the World” and is an “unauthorized reproduction of [Kimberly’s] work,” court papers state.

“The appearance of impropriety is striking,” he says in the lawsuit.

Wonder if Chelsea is even concerned? Or is this is just another day in the life of a Clinton.

But Chelsea is such a talented writer.
How can this be true?

You know what they say about Apples & Trees... Chelsea is a wannabe Hillary, who is a wannabe Dictator. The Clintons can go to hell

I once came upon a piece of cardboard by the side of the road that had more depth, integrity and substance than Chelsea Clinton.

There are people in the graveyard for less.

I wouldn't mess with a Clinton.

Hillary is bound to be in a foul mood.

Uhhhh if I were Chris I would be very very careful since there are rumors that the Clintons were involved with the Dixie Mafia.

This is my surprised face...


I rode crosscountry in a hot car once with a guy who ate egg salad sammiches, non-stop, and the windows wouldn't roll down. He was way better than the spawn of Billary could ever hope to be.
