I can’t quite figure this out, so please someone enlighten me: If Shirley Sherrod was involved in a law suit against the Federal Government for racial descrimination against farmers, why was she ever hired to work for the USDA? I realize this was a new appointment, but wasn’t she working in some other capacity for 20 years or more? Isn’t that what she said - that years ago she didn’t want to help that white farmer but over the years learned?

’ If Shirley Sherrod was involved in a law suit against the Federal Government for racial descrimination against farmers, why was she ever hired to work for the USDA? “

The timing of the settlement was 24 hours before she was hired to work for the USDA.
It looks like giving her a job could have been part of the Sherrod’s demands.
There seems to be little information and much speculation on just what the Sherrod’s did with that 13 million.
In addition to the $ 300,00 they personally received.
An audit would definitely be in order.
Imagine the reaction of the media and the Democrats if George Bush’s Agriculture Secretary gave a couple who routinely made anti black comments 13 million
and then hired the wife for a cushy job.
