ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Documents say a former assistant state attorney general who was fired after being accused of harassing the gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan was previously warned about using state resources for anti-gay attacks on politicians.
AnnArbor.com reports Sunday that a report compiled by the attorney general's office that it obtained says Andrew Shirvell was warned last February after sending an e-mail to a former state representative and others that included a gay slur.
The warning came two months before Shirvell started a blog that criticized Chris Armstrong as a racist with a "radical homosexual agenda."
A message seeking comment was left Sunday with Shirvell's attorney, who has said the actions were constitutionally protected as free speech.
National criticism erupted over the blog last fall.
