Writer Sues Chlesea Clinton, Claiming She Lifted Parts of His Own Book Proposal for "She Persisted"

To be honest, this lawsuit sounds kind of bullshit to me.

The allegation is that this guy submitted his own proposal about Inspiring Women to Penguin Books, including several of the same women that Chelsea, um, looked up on Wikipedia for her book, and that some of key quotes from the women are used.

Christopher Janes Kimberley, 56, filed a federal lawsuit in New York against Chelsea Clinton, 37, and Penguin Random House accusing the former first daughter of copyright infringement.

Court documents obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Kimberley is seeking up to $150,000 in damages and any profits from the New York Times best seller.
Kimberley said he wrote an all-ages, three-volume illustrated children's book 'A Heart is the Part That Makes Boys And Girls Smart' in 2013.

Kimberley's book contains 15 quotes and stories from historical figures such as Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman and Nellie Bly in its 'Quotable Questionnaire' section. Clinton's book features 13 stories and quotes including those three women.

Uhhh... as I just said, I think the reason behind this is because these children's books kind of have the same basic source, which is Wikipedia, or like 40 other standard Inspiring Women for Girlz books published over the last 40 years all using pretty much the same women.

So, without actually knowing anything, I think this is probably bullshit, but the fact that Chelsea Clinton's stupid Internet Meme book is just like another guy's book proposal kind of indicates the level of thought and effort she's pouring into her literary ventures.
