In early October, we along with many others, called for Michigan Assistant Attorney General, Andrew Shirvell, to be fired for his stalking and cyberstalking of Chris Armstrong, the first openly gay president of the University of Michigan's student body.
Finally, after first being allowed to take paid sick leave at taxpayer expense, Shirvell has now been fired. The Michigan Daily:
Andrew Shirvell — the Michigan assistant attorney general engulfed in a firestorm of criticism after he created a blog attacking Michigan Student Assembly President Chris Armstrong — has been fired by the attorney general's office, according to a statement from Deborah Gordon, the attorney representing Armstrong.
“This is clearly the correct decision by the Attorney General’s office,” Gordon wrote in the statement. “The next step must be a complete retraction of all the malicious lies and fabrications by Mr. Shirvell, and a public apology to Chris Armstrong, his family and the others Mr. Shirvell has slandered.”
Calls to Shirvell's lawyer weren't immediately returned this afternoon.
