Sherrod turns down job offer from Agriculture Department

Shirley Sherrod, who received an apology after being forced to resign from the Agriculture Department, declined an offer Tuesday to serve as the agency's deputy director of the Office of Advocacy and Outreach.

The position includes administration and outreach to improve the
Agriculture Department's civil rights efforts and image nationwide.

Sherrod met Tuesday morning with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to
discuss the job offer.

    LOL, she's waiting to see how much money she can get from the law suit and book deal. She doesn't want to work! So typical.

    Seems like the federal government from the president on down has done everything to make amends except kissing her backside in public. She rejected the job offer. Fine, wish her well in her career and move on. Next time she applies for a position she will be just like anyone else special treatment or considerations.
