    Default MICHIGAN: Assistant Attorney General Harasses Gay College Student

    This is a crazy story!!!


    Original Interview From CNN:

    Update:
    Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox has reversed his position and suspended Assistant AG Andrew Shivrell (left) after a national media outcry about Shivrell's cyber-harassment of openly gay University of Michigan student body president Chris Armstrong.

    The suspension came a day after Cox told CNN he didn't intend to fire Shirvell, citing civil service rules that protect government employees from being "fired willy-nilly" for exercising their rights of free speech. Cox said he hadn't earlier read all of Shirvell's blog, "Chris Armstrong Watch," that dogs Armstrong, the 21-year-old, openly gay president of U-M's student government and accuses him of "anti-Christian behavior," "mocking God," promoting homosexuality and trying "to recruit your sons and daughters" into the gay lifestyle. "I'm at fault here," Cox said. "I've been saying for weeks that (Shirvell's) been acting like a bully, that his behavior is immature, but it's after-hours and protected by the First Amendment." But Cox also took a shot at Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who posted a Twitter item Thursday saying she would have fired Shirvell. "I don't know why she's so freaking irresponsible. ... she went to Harvard Law School," Cox said. "The civil service rules are a huge shield for free speech and she knows that."

    The ACLU is backing Cox's opinion on Shivrell's First Amendment rights, saying they believe "the answer to hate speech is more speech."

    My Comments:
    1) What a homophobic bigot Andrew Shivrell is, as all Chris Armstrong (the gay student) did to get his hate was win a student union election while being gay!!!

    2) This is not his first ant gay campaign ether, in 2005 he was part of a campaign to get a local pizza store boycotted because they had a gay pride rainbow up in the window

    3) Thank god the media pressure has forced Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox to can his ass as he is a disgrace to his office, profession and whatever faith he believes in!!!!

    Don't see much evidence of "harassment" there.

    The homophobia police are always on the look-out to lynch people who don't agree with their opinions.
