Breaking: Shirley Sherrod announces plans to sue Andrew Breitbart 

The AP reports that former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod plans to sue Andrew Breitbart who posted an edited video of her making racially tinged remarks last week.
From the report:

The edited video posted by Andrew Breitbart led Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to ask Sherrod to resign, a decision he reconsidered after seeing the entire video of her March speech to a local NAACP group. In the full speech, Sherrod spoke of racial reconciliation and lessons she learned after initially hesitating to help a white farmer save his home.

She said she doesn’t want an apology from Breitbart for posting the video that took her comments out of context, but told a crowd at the National Association of Black Journalists annual convention that she would “definitely sue.”
