Nevertheless, she infringed.
At least, that’s the accusation being made by a writer who is suing former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton for $150,000.
Christopher Kimberley filed a federal lawsuit in New York claiming Clinton and publisher Penguin Random House stole his book idea when they produced the children’s book ‘She Persisted.’

Clinton derived the idea for her book from the temper tantrum thrown on the Senate floor by Democrat Elizabeth Warren, which produced this quote from Mitch McConnell …
She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.
Liberals turned the last three words into a feminist rallying cry, and Clinton took the cue for her book.
Problem is, according to Kimberley, that the series of quotes used in the book are similar to a book he wrote in 2013.
Via the Daily Mail:
An author is suing Chelsea Clinton for ‘ripping off’ his idea to write her feminist children’s book ‘She Persisted’.
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.
Kimberely claims that his book featured three quotes that were also featured in the book ‘She Persisted.’
“I did months of painstaking research on my book,” the writer told the New York Post. “Her version looks like a ninth-grade homework assignment.”
“I am in disbelief,” he said.
Um … they’re quotes. You’ll likely find them in numerous other books and/or collections.
Nevertheless, he insisted that the president of Penguin Young Readers US, Jennifer Loja, must have received the submission in 2013, read it, and then gave the idea to Clinton.
