Shirley Sherrod To Sue Andrew Breitbart
Shirley Sherood, who was fired from her job because of a video released by blogger Andrew Breitbart that grossly misrepresented her, will now sue.
Speaking Thursday at the National Association of Black Journalists convention, Sherrod said she would definitely sue over the video that took her remarks out of context. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has since offered Sherrod a new job in the department. She has not decided whether to accept.
Sherrod said she had not received an apology from Breitbart and no longer wanted one. “He had to know that he was targeting me,” she said.
Breitbart did not immediately respond to a call or e-mails seeking comment.
