Do y'all remember Andrew Shirvell? He was the Assistant Attorney General who stalked and harassed the University of Michigan's openly gay student government president. After making a public fool of himself and his office, Andrew was fired.
Over a year later, he appealed his termination... but it was denied.
Andrew Shirvell appealed his Nov. 10, 2010, firing from the Attorney General's Office. Then-Attorney General Mike Cox said in firing him that Shirvell lied to his superiors and used state equipment to publish the blog that accused Chris Armstrong of having a "radical homosexual agenda."Too bad, Andrew. I hear Sears is hiring.
"The pattern of conduct in which he engaged constituted hate speech, physical and mental harassment of citizens of this state and a nexus was established between that conduct and his position as an assistant attorney general," the report released Tuesday said. "It is disheartening to see a bright individual with a great deal of potential engage in such conduct.
"The fact that the grievant deliberately made a media spectacle of himself and the department for which he worked without regard for the interests of his employer constitutes conduct unbecoming a state employee."
