Excellent! That man had NO business being in the position that he was!

Andrew Shirvell, the Michigan assistant state attorney general who recently came under fire for relentlessly harassing University of Michigan student body president Chris Armstrong because of his sexual preference, was let go this afternoon for not only his behavior, but for lying to investigators during his disciplinary hearing!

Attorney General Mike Cox explained in a statement that Shirvell was fired for "conduct unbecoming a state employee, especially that of an assistant attorney general," and continued:

"To be clear, I refuse to fire anyone for exercising their First Amendment rights, regardless of how popular or unpopular their positions might be. However, Mr. Shirvell repeatedly violated office policies, engaged in borderline stalking behavior, and inappropriately used state resources, our investigation showed. The cumulative effects of his use of state resources, harassing conduct that is not protected by the First Amendment, and his lies during the disciplinary conference all demonstrate adequate evidence of conduct unbecoming a state employee. Ultimately, Mr. Shirvell's conduct has brought his termination from state service."

According to the investigation, Shirvell:

- Showed up at Armstrong's home three separate times, including once at 1:30 a.m. "That incident is especially telling because it clearly was about harassing Mr. Armstrong, not engaging in free speech," the statement said.
- "Engaged in behavior that, while not perhaps sufficient to charge criminal stalking, was harassing, uninvited and showed a pattern that was in the everyday sense, stalking."
- Harassed Armstrong's friends as they were socializing in Ann Arbor.
- Called Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office, Armstrong's employer, in an attempt to "slander Armstrong and ultimately attempting to cause Pelosi to fire Armstrong.
- Attempted to "out" Armstrong's friends as homosexual — several of whom aren't gay.

Absolutely unbelievable!

This man doesn't just need to be fired - he needs to be put away somewhere!

However, we're happy that justice was served and hopefully now Shirvell will leave that poor kid alone! So unfair!

Good riddance, we say!

    YAY!!!!!!

    There was a segment and interview with this guy on either the Daily Show or the Colbert Report and it was hilarious, but also bordeline scary. It shocks me that there are people like this out there. I firmly believe that men who act like this are latent homosexuals, who simply do not want to acknowledge it and have a hatred of people who are comfortable and happy in who they are.

    Celebrity Sass - No Bull!!!

    Shirvell is obviously disturbed.

    if he were black, or if i had legal standing i would have money, so i would say this is a wrongful termination. i will argue reverse discrimination and passion arising from a workplace dispute that spilled into the media maelstrom

  6. SeeMe says – reply to this

    What took so long? This should have been done a long time ago.

    This is the kind of lunatic who might decide to get a gun. I hope that Shervill gets a psychiatric evaluation and some therapy, and I hope until then the office which finally fired that creep will help out and provide Mr. Armstrong with some security. Shervill seems like the sort who would blame getting fired not on his own actions but on the college student he chose to victimize.

    In other news….Andrew Shirvellt & Chris Armstrong are now dating and considering moving in together; future plans include adopting special needs children and traveling together.

    Glad he got what he deserved! Just a note though. I wouldn't use the term "sexual preference" to describe someones sexuality. "Sexual Orientation" is a much better phrase, as preference is something one has control over. I prefer to date blondes instead of brunettes, I have control over that, not over whether the blonde is a guy or a girl.

    PEREZ - YOU HAVE YOUR PIC WRONG!!! The word "RESIGN" and the Nazi symbol are pointing to Chris Armstrong, not Andrew Shirvell!! The a$$hole homophobe is the large pic. FIX IT!!!

    Re: Texas Mom – Totally agree.



  12. 12

    The photo inset is what Shirvell posted on his blog to defame and harass Armstrong. His behavior is that of a classic stalker, and I hope he's disbarred, then he can move to Topeka and become part of Rev Hater Fred's family.

    Re: Bart Gates – Ahhhh gotcha!



  14. 14

    honestly? seriously? come on he has got to be a closet case…why the fuck do u go to someones house who u hate? stalkers do that…why? because they fucken are obsessed with the people they stalk..im pretty sure this psycho is gay unfortunatly



  15. 15

    Shirvell will be seen in a year on a gay pride parade in a thong and pasties….
    Some day it will be no big deal to be gay and not a psychological "crisis" which results in crazy town behavior…



  16. 16

    why did he need to do this to the poor gay guy? So what you don't like gays.. it shouldn't be your life's mission to drive this guy mad…



  17. 17

    Tick tock till he's arrested for picking up guys in public restrooms.



  18. 18

    its like he is always in love with Armstrong but is probably confused/afraid of his feelings so it turns into hate. Creepy as hell



  19. 19

    Sounds like someone has a crush…



  20. 20

    About time you posted this…………



  21. 21

    That picture up there is one Andrew Shirvell put up on his blog dedicated to "keeping and eye on" Armstrong. It is not from Perez. For better information go to AnnArbor.com



  22. 22

    ITS ABOUT TIME…..



  23. 23

    i agree this guy should have been fired, but whoever put the swastika up on the flag is wrong, im Jewish and offended by that symbol!



  24. 24

    I hope he also gets some psychiatric help, because he's clearly disturbed. I really hope he doesn't do anything to hurt Chris.



  25. 25

    Good! What a total loser, worthless, piece of garbage and filth he is. Freak. He can rot in hell.



  26. 26

    This guy clearly has unrequited love for the guy he was stalking. Betcha $20 in three months he's caught in a men's room restroom sex sting operation.



  27. 27

    This moron is wasting tax payers money with his homophobic witch hunt and he does not represent the views of Michigan residents like myself. We are among the top 5 states with economic and crime issues and this guy spent his time on this? Fucking moron. I am so pist! I am lovin it he is fired and will have this black mark on his work history for life. Good luck getting a job you close minded piece of shit.



  28. 28

    I bet it's because he's white and that asst. AG is racist.



  29. 29

    Ya, what's up with calling it a "sexual preference"? I guess all STR8s just have a preference for the opposite sex. They might start preferring the same sex. Gives us all hope.



  30. 30

    this dude is so obviously a closeted homosexual himself. yep…another ted haggard



  31. 31

    Its funny to me.. that Perez gets so worked up over Anti Gay Slurs and wants to lock this guy up.. (yes intolerance is never a good thing… ) but education about the unfamiliar is a better answer then spending tax dollars locking someone up over bigot thinking..Slap a restraining order against him.. get him counselling and education and dont waste my tax dollars on this nonsense.



  32. 32

    It is about time that this bigot was fired.
    Now Chris Armstrong's lawyer is trying to have him disbarred!! Yea!!
    Mika Cox dragged his feet on this one!



  33. 33

    if all he'd done was posting his own personal feeling on his blog then she should not have been fired…free speech after all, even if it is hate speech.

    but when he started showing up places where the student was, like his HOUSE (scary) and harassing his buddies in person, and calling his employer who's a member of Congress for Pete's sake (WTF?!) then he clearly crossed the line from free speech to stalking and being really creepy.

    anyone get the feeling this dude is a severely closeted gay himself?



  34. 34

    TAHT ATTORNEY WILL PAY FOR BEING A JERK!!



  35. 35

    Sounds like a certain FORMER Assistant Attorney General is harboring some serious gay tendencies… but to quote a famous movie… he would 'have to be human first'…. and he certainly ain't.



  36. 36

    If I was this kid I would start looking over my shoulder because you know this nutjob is gonna blame him. He already showed up at his house in the middle of the night, CREEPY!!!!!!!!!!!
