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.
