Shirley Sherrod Will Sue Andrew Breitbart


The bullying Andrew Breitbart is about to get a taste of his own medicine. Look like he picked the wrong target:

Ousted Agriculture Department employee Shirley
Sherrod said Thursday she will sue a conservative blogger who posted an
edited video of her making racially tinged remarks last week.

The edited video posted by Andrew Breitbart led Agriculture Secretary
Tom Vilsack to ask Sherrod to resign, a decision he reconsidered after
seeing the entire video of her March speech to a local NAACP group. In
the full speech, Sherrod spoke of racial reconciliation and lessons she
learned after initially hesitating to help a white farmer save his home.

She said she doesn't want an apology from Breitbart for posting the
video that took her comments out of context, but told a crowd at the
National Association of Black Journalists annual convention that she
would "definitely sue."
