Shirley Sherrod Returns to USDA, Andrew Breitbart To Cry Self To Sleep

Good news: Shirley Sherrod, the USDA employee who was smeared by Andrew Breitbart, causing them to wrongfully fire her, will be returning to the department albeit in a different capacity:

Shirley Sherrod, the U.S. Department of Agriculture employee who was forced out after a portion of a videotape was misleadingly used to show her making a racially insensitive remark, will start working for the USDA again, the department told POLITICO Friday. But she’s not getting her old job back.

Instead, Sherrod will help the USDA improve its dismal civil rights record.

No one should ever have to go through what Sherrod did, and the tragedy of it all is that nothing was learned from it, just as Sherrod’s humiliation came about because nothing was learned from Breitbart’s false editing of the ACORN tapes. What would be a greater reward than any compensation won from the lawsuit she launched against Breitbart for slander and defamation, is if the media refused to take anything that passes through Breitbart’s slimy, lying hands seriously ever again. But that’s about as likely to happen as Breitbart showing any kind of remorse for his despicable and destructive actions.

  1. Hee! Liked your headline!

    Shirley Sherrod’s new position is perhaps one positive development out of this whole mess. At any rate, I’m glad she is back in public service. We need people like her.
