CNN) – Shirley Sherrod, a former USDA employee who resigned after a controversial video surfaced, told CNN Tuesday that members of the Obama administration "harassed" her and demanded she resign her post immediately.
In an interview with CNN, Sherrod said she repeatedly fielded calls on Monday during a long car ride, during which officials insisted that she pull over to the side of the road and quit her post.

What will she say if Beck takes her side in the debate? Glenn may decide to make some lemonade from this.
I Can Haz Ur OODA Loop, Bammy
Translation: The White House wouldn’t have done anything about this racist pig, were it not for the threat of....... The Wrath of Beck.
Boy, under the bus in half a min.
The power of Glen Beck!
...and if I heard him correctly he invited Sherrod to appear on the show.
a friend once told me..God works better with brokeness..
Glenn Beck’s personal story. His mom killed herself when he was a child. his struggle with alcoholism. working for various radio stations making chump change. not having enough money to support his family for years.
and here he is maybe the most powerful commentator in the U.S.A. at a time of major national crisis.
I would like for him to come to the gulf coast and really take off on this administration, one show from him would change a lot of what is going on, the killing off of oil drilling to suit the greenies.....
He is quite amazing.
Here comes the inevitable racial discrimination claim and workers' compensation claim.
I’m worried about him, too. I think he’s a little nuts.
Hope Glenn gets Bammy to resign too!
The most damning bit of this story is they actually were so panicked and paranoid that they told her to pull over and do it now.
What gives this immense power is that it is now public information. It is more harmful to Obama than if she had not resigned.
And Beck’s head is gonna be the size of Texas. ;)
Today is a major turning point.
The White House just kindly asked that she get “harass” out of there ASAP...
I would love to see him do that...and really gum up the left.
Treat interview her...treat her like a queen...just use the left vs left
The White House reaction gives cover to Fox News and Breitbart.
How can the libs now say that she was wronged when THEY were the ones who forced her out?
The White House is just a bunch of racist, sexist pigs — they would never have fired a white guy for saying this. And they never would have made a guy pull off the road to get fired.
Thank CNN for giving Glen Beck a start (Irony)
I think she was talking about last night.
We got a look behind the curtain of the new racism, Black on anything else racism. There has been a direct correlation in the rise of Black prejudice as it relates to government entitlements, rise in government employment by blacks and a complete overtaking of the culture and entertainment business with Rap/Hip Hop/Violent Action movies and other overall brutishness and coarseness. Its no secret that upwardly mobile Southern Blacks are the new Bull Connnors, they are taking their Masters degrees paid for with generous government grants and using it to create a new Black hegemony. Michelle Obama or this Fat As* are haters, no better than any redneck in 1955 Dekalb, Ga. I have to hand it to them, form basically being treated like farm animals 75 years ago, to now turning it around on the rest of us, says a lot about hate and the willingness of liberals to foster that hate
Because she is now saying that this example was only the FIRST part of the story... (my paraphrase) "... but I learned this was not about black and white. I saw the errors of my ways and corrected them.... And so should all of you." But her "explanation" still does not explain why everyone in the audience chuckled when she described how she stuck it to whitey.
Read the whole thing. She actually let on that she found the prospect of helping a white farmer distasteful in the extreme. Imagine if a white Republican official talked like that.
America in 2100 is gonna be a dreadful place.
So she wasn’t worried about bragging about being a tyrant, only Glenn Beck? It really bothers me that no one on the left is coming out and condeming this kind of behavior and pointing at Beck instead of looking in the mirror.
Then Obama's people started thinking about how far Glenn Beck could run with this ball, given a day to prepare a show around it, and got a panic attack.
Visualize the Glen Beck show. Run the videotape. Then tell them: this is the face of the Obama Administration. Under ObamaCare, THIS is the kind of person who will decide what level of medical care YOU will get. People like HER will get to decide if you live or die.
Most creative types are a little nuts.
is there any site that still streams fox news or have they all been shut down? I would like to see tonights segment.
Sherrod is the definition of “paranoia”
2010: Shirley Sherrod thrown under the bus by racist Obama administration.
God Himselff is working through Glenn Beck. Praise God!
Sherrod IS exactly the kind of vicious racist bureaucrat inculcated by the “progressive” left with just the kind of ideas she spewed.
Note that her “reformed” view is that it’s wrong for blacks to be racist toward POOR whites..... sure, so long as you are a “have not” in the eyes of the left it’s OK to be white.
Otherwise, it’s “open season” on whites, especially conservative white males.
Question: who would want someone like her as their doctor or nurse in a medically difficult situation? Who would want someone like her as the Obamacare bureaucrat making decisions about whether to “allow” life-saving treatments etc.?????
Sure seems to. An earlier example is Sam Houston.
Beck is exposing much bigger things than this on a daily basis. This is just another straw on the camel’s back.
I wouldn’t be so quick to claim victory on this. It could blow up in our face.
Ok.... there appears to be a lot of Dem Trolls cruising the Boards here at FR. Some of the remarks are uncalled for and wrong from many angles. Beck is no where close to nuts. But most of us would be if we had to go through what he has in his life. He was on board raising money for the troops and holding rallies in their support long before anyone else. His love of Country,its people and the Constitution cannot be questioned. But most of all, it’s his love of the Truth that really matters. Something so many seem to care little about ? Nuts ? If he’s Nuts ? Let’s hope & Pray more of us Americans will become Nuts with him.
I like Beck. If it’s true he scares 0bama...GOOD!
Ah... Glenn shining the light on yet another scandal....
I wish more of what he’s shining the light on, would disintegrate the fabric of our government, faster.

I could not agree more. The regime as much as admitted that it can be forced to dance to whatever tune Brietbart and Beck play. I hope there is much more coming.
Glenn is certainly NOT agreeing with the firing of Sharon!
Yep sometimes Beck is a bit nuts, but then again on a personal level, don’t you think someone would have to be a little nuts to take on the people with the power of the United States Government 100% behind them?
Do you think he is not more than just a little bit EFFECTIVE?
????Where did I claim victory????
???What did I say we won????
???Where did I Indicate the Enemy is retreating????
Stick to what is written and not what you think I mean.
I will declare victory when Democrats can’t even get elected in Mass.
And anything can blow up in your face, even a dozen eggs left in your rear window for too long in the sun.
In a nutshell, this demonstrates not just obama’s, but his whole administration’s incompetence.
