Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell is obsessed with a young college student. For several months, Shirvell has followed Chris Armstrong around campus and even to his home. He also set up a blog devoted to attacking Armstrong after he was elected president of the University of Michigan student body. Shirvell has called Armstrong, who is openly gay, "Satan's representative," a "pervert," and "Nazi like." After Shirvell's obsession with Armstrong was reported by the national media, he took a leave of absence from the attorney general's office.
