Chelsea Clinton's boyfriend is a White House intern
Chelsea Clinton has been dating Jeremy Kane, a Stanford University classmate
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Chelsea Clinton, who has been taking a greater public role during the final months of her father's presidency, is dating a White House intern, an administration official has told CNN.
The official, who did not want to be named, was responding to a report in Wednesday's New York Daily News. The report named the boyfriend as Jeremy Kane, a Stanford University senior and classmate of Chelsea's, who began work as an intern this summer in the White House speechwriting office.
The official confirmed that Kane is Chelsea's boyfriend, that that they have been dating for some time, possibly since before the holidays and that he has been an intern in the speechwriting office since June.
His internship concludes this week, said the official.
First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's office declined to comment on the report.
"We don't comment on Chelsea or her private life," said Erika Batcheller, a spokeswoman for the first lady's press office.
It was the president's relationship with another one-time White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, that led to his impeachment by the House of Representatives in 1998.
Kane was spotted with Chelsea in Los Angeles in August, as the first family arrived for the Democratic National Convention.
In July, the White House announced that Chelsea had decided to take the fall quarter off from Stanford to spend more time with her father during the final months of his presidency and to help her mother as she campaigns for the U.S. Senate in New York.
Chelsea Clinton has filled in for her mother at White House functions, has traveled with her father recently to India, Africa and Colombia, and has appeared on the campaign trail in New York.
