Sherrod Announces Plans to Sue Breitbart

Posted: Jul 29, 2010 12:53 PM
Shirley Sherrod reportedly has plans to file suit against Andrew Breitbart.  The ousted federal worker apparently announced her intentions at a conference of the National Association of Black Journalists today in San Diego, Calif.

As you'll recall, Breitbart posted a clip of video which seemed to show Sherrod giving preferential treatment to blacks over whites in her job at the USDA.  In a hectic response to the video, the Obama administration demanded Sherrod's resignation via Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack--not because of her comments, but because they feared she'd appear on Fox News' Glenn Beck. In addition, the NAACP heavily condemned Sherrod's remarks. 

Interestingly enough, there don't seem to be any rumors circulating about Sherrod filing claims in court against her now-former employer or the NAACP.
