...MI Asst A.G. bullying gay student....

this article reprinted from BosGuy...........

Did you know that for 6 months, Andrew Shirvell, assistant attorney general for the state of Michigan, has waged an online bullying campaign against college student Chris Armstrong, an openly gay student assembly president at U Michigan in Ann Arbor? I didn't and I want to spread the word... I hope you will too.

CNN broadcaster, Anderson Cooper, had Shirvell on his show earlier this week and last night Cooper invited Shirvell's boss, Michigan Attorney General Cox (a man with a history of turning a deaf ear to GLBT issues), to his show to ask why he has allowed such aggressive behavior from his assistant. Needless to say, the story is both bizarre and frightening. There's a lot on the internet about this story - Queerty has a good posting you can read here.

I was going to read Shirvell's blog today, but after his appearance on CNN he blocked his site. I was student council president when I was in college, and I can't imagine what I would have done if someone did the same thing to me. I found Shirvell's office number and have decided to post it - his work telephone no. is (517) 373-4875.

Additionally, his boss, MI AG Mike Cox office e-mail is miag@michigan.gov. I'm going to send an e-mail to Mr. Cox for what its worth. The main number for the A.G.s office in Lansing, MI is (517) 373-1110
