Findings of USDA Sherrod probe expected soon
Agriculture Department lawyers are expected to brief Secretary Tom Vilsack next week on their preliminary review of the actions surrounding Shirley Sherrod's resignation, according to department officials.
Three weeks ago Vilsack asked the department's acting general counsel to review "all relevant information relating to the handling of the Sherrod resignation" on and after July 19, the day Sherrod was asked to resign, said a senior department official.
Sherrod, USDA's former Georgia state director of rural development, continues to evaluate the position offered to her by the department, said the official, who asked not to be identified. She did not return calls seeking comment on Thursday.
