detroit free press: Andrew Shirvell: Former U-M student body president pushed 'radical homosexual agenda'
Former state assistant attorney general Andrew Shirvell testified today that he believes former University of Michigan student body President Chris Armstrong was trying to push his "radical homosexual agenda," according to a Detroit Free Press report.
Shirvell was fired in 2010 after criticizing Armstrong on an anti-gay blog, in Facebook posts and during visits to the Ann Arbor campus. He says he has a right to express his belief that Armstrong is a radical activist, according to previous reports. A judge in April dismissed a lawsuit Shirvell filed against Armstrong alleging the student had defamed him.
While representing himself Wednesday, Shirvell testified that he believed Armstrong was too radical for his position after learning of the student's push for gender-neutral housing at U-M, the Free Press reported.
The jury was expected to begin deliberations in the case this afternoon.
