Writer claims Chelsea Clinton stole his book idea.

An upstate author is suing Chelsea Clinton for allegedly ripping off his idea when she published her best-selling feminist kids book, “She Persisted,” federal court documents reveal. Christopher Janes Kimberley, 56, of Albany, is seeking up to $150,000 from the former first daughter and Penguin Random House for copyright infringement, according to the lawsuit, filed...

Christopher Janes Kimberley, 56, of Albany, is seeking up to $150,000 from the former first daughter and Penguin Random House for copyright infringement, according to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in Southern District of New York court.

The little-known writer claims his 2013 illustrated kids book, “A Heart is the Part That Makes Boys And Girls Smart,” features quotes from at least three of the same inspiring women that Clinton uses in the book, according to the court documents.

Kimberly claims he sent the president of Penguin Young Readers US, Jennifer Loja, a book pitch via Facebook in May 2013 and she passed off his idea to Clinton, according to the lawsuit.

In “She Persisted,” Clinton cites Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman and Nellie Bly in the “Quotable Questionnaire” section of the book— a concept she swiped from Kimberly, the suit states.

Clinton’s book also features 13 historical women “front and center on the book cover,” which is “an unauthorized reproduction of [Kimberly’s] own work,” according to the lawsuit.

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

The writer filed a cease and desist order in April to stop Clinton from publishing the book on May 30.

Clinton’s book, which caters to readers ages four to eight, is a New York Times best seller.

The title, “She Persisted,” is a nod to a feminist meme adopted earlier this year after Senator Elizabeth Warren objected to the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General.
