Excellent news. Shirley Sherrod, the fired and subsequently vindicated Department of Agriculture official, announced that she will sue Andrew Breitbart, the conservative race-baiting and anti-gay blogger who posted doctored video on the Internet last week that made her appear racist.
Speaking at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in San Diego, Sherrod said she would "definitely” file suit against Breitbart. "He had to know that he was targeting me."
The doctored video of Sherrod making racially tinged remarks emerged on July 19. Sherrod was quickly pressured to resign by the Obama Administration. In the full speech, Sherrod spoke of racial reconciliation and lessons she learned after initially hesitating to help a white farmer save his home.
The posted video resulted in public apologies from President Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack for dismissing her without learning the complete story.
You go girl. Sherrod should sue a few other people, too. Breitbart's litigation could possibly force the blogger to reveal the alleged "source" who allegedly doctored the video. But we know who really did it, right?
