A former Michigan assistant attorney general has told a federal court jury that a gay University of Michigan student body president he was accused of stalking and defaming had been trying to push a "radical homosexual agenda."
The Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/OwM2lT ) reports that Andrew Shirvell gave the testimony Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit while representing and questioning himself on the stand.
He's being sued by Chris Armstrong who claims he suffered emotional distress after a blog created by Shirvell accused him of enticing minors with alcohol and recruiting people to become homosexual.
Then-Attorney General Mike Cox fired Shirvell in 2010.
Shirvell says he viewed his blog "as a movement to get" Armstrong to resign. Armstrong graduated last year.
Jurors were expected to start deliberations Wednesday afternoon.
