Sherrod Balks at Pay

ARCHIVES

The Agriculture Department's year-old effort to make amends with wrongly cashiered rural development director Shirley Sherrod has broken down over money. That's according to a Washington Post Style profile published Thursday.

"SDA officials now say they are hoping Sherrod will come back as a consultant to help them address inequities facing black farmers," writes reporter Krista Thompson, after visiting Sherrod in Albany, Ga. "But the administration has once again upset her, offering a $35,000 consulting contract. The figure, she said, is a "slap in the face," given the amount of work the job would require."
