Andrew Shirvell Taking ‘Voluntary Leave of Absence’ From Michigan AG’s Office

Now that Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell is no longer clocking in to work under AG Mike Cox? It’s being called “a voluntary leave of absence.” Which means, at least according to HR’s paperwork, it wasn’t Cox who pushed Shirvell out the door; he left of his own volition.

Cox’s spokeswoman Joy Yearout, reports AnnArbor.com, “would not comment on the length of the leave or any other details, saying only it was Shirvell’s decision to temporarily step aside from his position as an assistant state attorney general.”

The Facebook group calling for Shirvell to be fired? Almost at 9,000 members. And I hoped you saved a copy of Shirvell’s blog Chris Armstrong Watch, because now it’s offline.

Meanwhile, there are rumors floating around the Facebook group “We Support Chris Armstrong” saying Shirvell only has three weeks left on his job, which would mean his suspension is just an off-ramp to a full-time exit.

      The AG’s office is really in trouble, any smart defense lawyer in Michigan who lost a case to Shirvelle can ask for an appeal based upon the fact that he is obviously imballanced. They might not get it, but it is going to cause a crapload of paperwork. And if you had a client who was gay, his obvious bigotry could be used to get the verdict tossed and the case retried because somebody so obviously bigoted would give the appearence of not being a fair prosecuter in the case.

      This guy needs to lose his job, but he also needs to come to the realization that he most likely hates this college kid because he resents anybody who is publicly out as opposed to his own self hating closeted status.

      The Attorney General eeds to be throw out too! Cox is obiviously a closeted homophob just like his assistant… the two have been in bed with one another for years. They are both looking for a way to assure they GOP supporters they are not gay… The Govenor or Senate eeds to step in here to perform the checks and balance this state is obibiously in a death spiral. The AG (Cox0 should be forced to step down too for his lack of action on this issue!

      Shirvell is obviously mentally unbalanced. This is what happens when fundies are given free reign over government and legal institutions. If AG Cox doesn’t want to be responsible for a murder or a murder/suicide he better get Shirvell committed to a very good, very well-guarded psychiatric ward soon.

      Of course Cox has proven his own hatred and animus towards gays, so he might not care a bit if one of his minions of nepotism killed one.
