Sherrod Plans to Sue Blogger Andrew Breitbart

Jul 29, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod says she will pursue a lawsuit against conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, CNN reported.

Breitbart posted an edited video clip of Sherrod addressing a chapter of the NAACP that gave the impression she discriminated against a white farmer looking for assistance.

"I will definitely do it," she said when asked about the possibility of taking legal action, according to the report.

Breitbart "had to know that he was targeting me," Sherrod said. "At this point, he hasn’t apologized. I don’t want it at this point, and he’ll definitely hear from me."

Sherrod was forced to resign from her position with the Agriculture Department because of the controversy surrounding the clip, which was filmed 24 years ago. She later received an apology from the USDA and has been offered another position with the department.


  1. FACT CHECK – the clip was not filmed 24 years ago – it was taped in March of this year ABOUT an incident that occurred 24 years ago.

  2. Right now she has support from most people. But she is beginning to look more like someone trying to capitalize and less of a victim. After getting all of the government to apologize and the NAACP, she needs to be careful not to lose her credibility.

  3. More people need to start suing the no-good bastards who use false/misleading information to drag everyone down. It’s about time. Jane — you should change your name from Englesiepen to Analsiepen. Give it a rest.

  4. Gosh, “joeman”! What a vitriolic reply to a post from someone who was just pointing out a factual error, not stating an opinion. Get over yourself, joeman.

  5. Great wordpress blog here.. It’s hard to find quality writing like yours these days. I really appreciate people like you! take care and see you soon
