One year after the video of her speaking was “creatively edited” by Andrew Breitbart, Shirley Sherrod is returning to the USDA.
Shirley Sherrod is back at the United States Department of Agriculture, almost a year after she was forced out by a misleading video spread by conservatives falsely accusing her of discriminating against white farmers.
Sherrod will not take her old position, reports Politico, instead rejoining the agency to work on civil rights. In her new job, she’ll lead a program designed to improve relations with minority farmers.
The USDA is clearly in the tank for former employees who were smeared by deceptively edited videos.
Sherrod’s lawsuit against Breitbart for libel and slander is still ongoing.
