Former Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod says on Thursday (July 22) that she would consider legal action against the Tea Party supporter/blogger who posted the edited-for-political-purposes video that led to her forced resignation.

Sherrod discussed the situation on CBS’s “Early Show” and said that while she hasn’t actively talked about suing Andrew Breitbart, she “would definitely consider it.”

“As much as he’s saying it was about the NAACP, he had to know that it was about me,” says Sherrod, who has now been cleared of racism charges and received apologies from the USDA and the NAACP. “He was willing to destroy me to get to what he thought — to try to destroy the NAACP.”
