Fired but possibly rehired Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod says she will pursue a lawsuit against conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart.
What happened was incredibly unfair to Sherrod, and Breitbart should be publicly excoriated for what he did. But I don’t understand why a lawsuit should come from this. Her reputation is fully intact and then some. She was offered her job back. She will write a book and make a fortune (you know it is coming). Things are great. The only way to blow it is to come off looking petty by suing.
