WASHINGTON - (PTSD News) - An attack by conservative politicians and broadcasters on a little known USDA official may have backfired on Republicans. Fox News and other conservative outlets made the now famous video clip showing Shirley Sherrod discussing her actions regarding a white farmer a top priority. Even though it surfaced later Sherrod did help save the farmers land, pressure from all corners of the political spectrum including the White House and the NAACP, Shirrod was forced to resign, even though the incident in question happened many years earlier. (The NAACP later retracted its condemnation of Sherrod, saying they were "snookered" by a doctored, out of context video).

However, legal scholars agree, that since there was strong bipartisan support which forced the resignation, under the Equal Protection clause of the Constitution, any other public official who previously used their public office to discrimiate against someone because of race must now resign. The new "Sherrod Law" apparently will cost every Republican in office their job, whether federal, state or local, as they all have discrimiated against a black or hispanic at some time after they took office. "There is no doubt that every Republican everywhere passed or blocked a law based upon race or just plain made a negative official decision based upon race," said Pinkston Wharton, Yale Law Professor.
The law will affect approximately 40% of Democrats who will also be forced to resign. This mass resignation may even effect the Supreme Court, with the 5 conservative justices clearly in volation of Sherrod.

The "Sherroded" officials have 48 hours to pack up their belongings and begin looking for other employment. "We had no idea broadcasting this tape would have such a devistaing effect on the Republican Party," said Roger Ailes, President of Fox News, "It appears the only Republican that wouldn't have had to resign under Sherrod was Abraham Lincoln."

Not everyone agrees this mass resignaton of all Republicans is a blow to the Tea Party and conservatives," said Gilbert Claussens, a researcher with the Goldstone Institute of Bethesda, Maryland, "as they just got their wish for a smaller government."
