ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Sherrod says she's been so inundated with e-mails and phone calls that she hasn't had a chance to review the job description and see if it's something she feels comfortable with.

Last week, Vilsack offered her a job as Deputy Director of Outreach within the office of Advocacy and Outreach for the Department of Agriculture. 

"What's being offered deals with discrimination. I would want to look at just what. I didn't want to be the fall guy for all discrimination in the Department of Agriculture. I'd want to know that wherever that is, there is sufficient funding to actually do the work and sufficient support to actually do what's expected of me."

Sherrod says the original job description was sent to the wrong email address, that's one reason it's taken a little longer for her to review it.

Shirley Sherrod says she still hasn't decided if she'll accept the new job U. S. Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack offered her.
