Shirley Sherrod suing man who made her lose her job

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - She once headed Georgia's Department of Rural Development, but now she's suing the man who cost her the job.

The USDA asked Shirley Sherrod to resign from her position after blogger Andrew Breitbart posted a portion of a video that made the Albany native out to be a racist.

Turns out, her speech was about her battle to overcome racism. After the smoke cleared, she was offered another job at The USDA, but she said no.

Breitbart posts on his website that he is "confident of being fully vindicated."
