Fired: Andrew Shirvell Now Has Lots of Time To Stay Home And Cyberbully

Pending the final outcome of his now-prolonged disciplinary hearing, assistant state attorney general and Michigan’s leading adult bully Andrew Shirvell has been placed on extended paid leave, according to Attorney General Mike Cox’s office. Update: This report claims Shirvell was indeed fired. His attorney says he was told at the hearing, “that as a result of Andrew’s conduct, it’s become impossible for him to carry out his duties as an attorney general.” Chris Armstrong’s attorney responded: “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.”

      Mike Cox: You have brought absoulute shame and disgrace to your office. The office which is supposed to be the standard bearer of law and order and set an example for the population of your state. For months now you have been fully aware of a grown man, one of your Assistant Attorney Generals stalking a barely legal college student thru what can only be described as cyber bullying. He has made wild accusations posted clearly false information about Chris Armstrong on a website which he freely admits creating, paying for, and administrating. And yet because this scumbag shiirvell identifies himself as “right wing” you have lowered your office and yourself to a pandering, disgracefull, example of tolerating and encouraging hatred and illegal actions towards bascially a complete stranger. Only because shirvell disppproves of Chirs’ being Gay. You deserve to be removed from office more than shirvell………

      Attorney General Cox said he didn’t fire him for expressing his first amendment rights, but more because he used state resources to post to the blog etc…

      Siiiigh, what a dick.

      “Andrew’s reaction is that he’s devastated over the loss of his employment,” Thomas said. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahah!!! I sure hope that is true.

      Now, this mofo needs to be disbarred. And then Justice is CLOSE to being served.

      @PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: I couldn’t agree more! Mike Cox is so concerned about being perceived as “pro-gay” he will let his whole office become a laughing stock and a haven for psychopaths. Well fear not Mr. Cox… no one thinks you are “pro-gay”. I hope you rot in the same hell as that crazy fucker it took you months to fire.

      I’m glad Shirvell was fired, he’s clearly unable to do his job in an objective manner. But something about him really creeps me out. It’s not just that he’s a homophobe- they’re a dime a dozen- but I don’t like that he seems fixated on this particular kid Armstrong.I hope they keep an eye on him because I’m betting this is not the end of this story.

      10 seconds into a recorded interview, he is clearly mentally ill. He keeps talking about how anything is fair in a political campaign. Exactly what political campaign is he running against a student council president? He’s innnnsannnne.

      @edgyguy1426: hopefully not, but based on his CNN & Daily Show interviews, he certainly doesn’t seem mentally stable. It wouldn’t surprise me if he now holds Chris Armstrong responsible for his current humiliation. (That kid might want to consider investing in a bullet-proof vest)

      PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS [Different person #1 using similar name]

      Everyone up above ^ ^ ^ is 100% correct. (thats my thumbs up w/o the thumbs feature no longer operational :p )…… If you watched the segment on the Daily Show it is clear that he has serious mental health issues. I am not taking from a biased standpoint. I am saying anyone viewing his mannerisms, inflections, tics, and lack of simple reasoning would surmise he is mentally unstable. Yet to pander to the rightwing lunatics Cox refuses to terminate this asshat and discontinue any connection with the office responsible for enforcment of the crimminal and civil code of the state.

      I truly hope the inevitiable legal actions involving this lunacy result in civil action which renders a well deserved substantial judgment for Chris Armstrong. Rather than the unfortunately very real possiblilty of crimminal action….

      The “Fire Andrew Shirvell” facebook page has become a party-zone. Ding-dong the witch is fired, etcetera. Disbarment is the next item on the agenda.

      Calm down. Some states prohibit employers from firing employees who make political statements on their own time, but can fire them for using an employer’s computing/networking resources for inappropriate personal use. It takes time to prove that the employee screwed up, and Cox more than likely lacks the expertise (and maybe computer access) to do that himself. Among other things, you may have to show that the employee being fired was using the computer in question, not some other co-worker.
