Antigay Mich. Asst. AG Could Lose License

Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shirvell might lose his license for his antigay rants against the University of Michigan's student leader.

An attorney for U of M student Chris Armstrong said Friday she filed a complaint with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission on behalf of her client.

The complaint alleges Shirvell harassed Armstrong during what attorney Deborah Gordon describes as a six-month campaign "of lies, dishonesty, heckling, hate speech and even job interference." The commission could potentially disbar Shirvell, depending on the outcome of the investigation.

In April, using the moniker "Concerned Michigan Alumnus," Shirvell started the blog Chris Armstrong Watch, describing Armstrong as a "Nazi-like" recruiter for "the cult that is homosexuality."

Last month Shirvell told Anderson Cooper it's "nothing personal."

Shirvell is currently on voluntary leave from his position.
