Firing of Former Michigan Assistant Attorney General and Anti-Gay Cyberbully Andrew Shirvell Upheld

A state hearing officer has upheld the 2010 firing of former Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shirvell for his disgusting anti-gay cyberbullying campaign against University of Michigan student body president Chris Armstrong, the AP reports:

Andrew_shirvellWilliam Hutchens of the Michigan Civil Service Commission says Andrew Shirvell was justly dismissed. He says the attorney engaged in "hate speech" on a blog and "physical and mental harassment."

Shirvell was fired by then-Attorney General Mike Cox in November 2010. He appealed, saying his conduct toward Christopher Armstrong was protected by the First Amendment. But the hearing officer says Shirvell's actions put his office in a bad light and could have discouraged people from working there.

  1. Well, there's always Liberty University or Regents University. I'm sure they'd love to hire a closeted dork such as Shirvell.

  2. Shirvell is a brutally sad, and yet perfect, example of a miserably closeted homosexual.

    I had interactions with him on facebook when then story first broke, and the idiot was dumb enough to engage in dialogue with me.

    INSANE, eh?

  7. Shirvell may be correct in that what he said was speech protected by the First Amendment. That is why he is not in jail for having said it. However, just because a person can say something that is protected speech does not mean that there are never going to be any consequences for having said what is said. In this case, the consequence was that he lost his job and rightfully so.

  8. I think that even the religious reich thinks he's nuts. I notice that none of the organizations that make up the Christian hate machine has come to his defense in any meaningful way.

  9. It’s obvious that the guy is a MENTAL case. Not like, “ok, we must close him in a madhouse”, but like one that one day could turn in the dangerous crazy type. Hope I’m mistaken, but given that I don’t see who could hire such a delusional wacko…

  11. Guess you can actually be too crazy for the republicans. Never thought I would see this.

  12. I do still actually feel bad for the dingbat. He must live in continual psychological torture and it's quite sad. Maybe some day he'll see the light and accept himself.

  13. He must be an idiot if he engaged in "dialogue" with the canadian wannabe American citizen littlekiwi.

  14. well, the sad thing is he is clearly a closeted homosexual, and he clearly harbored a positively Annie Wilkes-ian crush on Christ Armstrong.

    no actual heterosexual man spends that much time devoted to talking about and stalking a fit young attractive gay college student.

    it's the same old same old - "look, i'm SO not gay that i hate gay people and stalk them! doesn't that prove how not gay i am?"

  15. I am a chronological scrapper, so for once I would like to scrap something from this year instead of just scrapping all the events from 2011. Thanks for the chance to win.
