Anti-Gay Nutjob Michigan Ex-Assistant Attorny General Andrew Shrivell Has Long History Of LGBT Harassment

Andrew Shrivill the ex- ssistant state attorney general of Michigan who was fired in November after public outrage after stalking, harassing  and starting a blog that slurred openly gay University of Michigan assembly president, Chris Armstrong, as a racist with a “radical homosexual agenda” 

A recent report has now stated that Shirvell has a long history of anti-LGBT harassment according to report compiled by the attorney general’s office sending e-mails to a former state representative and others that included gay slurs, and also Shirvell harassed Armstrong’s friends as they were socializing in Ann Arbor and made numerous calls to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office while Armstrong was working there as an intern.

After Shirvell’s harassment of Armstrong became known national criticism erupted  last fall. The attorney general’s office drew more than 22,000 e-mails, 150 letters and 940 phone calls, most advocating for Shirvell to be fired.  Attorney General Mike Cox said at the time that the firing came after a state investigation revealed that Shirvell “repeatedly violated office policies, engaged in borderline stalking behavior and inappropriately used state resources.”

Armstrong and his lawyer Deborah Gordon petitioned the state Attorney Grievance Commission to have Shirvell disbarred. That process is still ongoing. Gordon said Armstrong has not ruled out further legal action against Shirvell
