Embattled Detroit Metropolitan Airport executive Turkia Mullin has been fired by the Wayne County Airport Authority Board. [The News Herald].
In a statement, she said she was “uniquely qualfied” to run the airport and was wrongfully terminated. She’s hired Bloomfield Hills attorney (and 2010 Leader in the Law) Raymond Sterling to pursue her legal remedies.
national state nightmare is over. OK, so that overstates it a little (or a lot). From the AP:
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A lawyer for an assistant state attorney general accused of harassing the gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan has been fired.
Philip Thomas says Andrew Shirvell was fired Monday.
Shirvell was at a disciplinary hearing Monday at the Michigan attorney general’s office related to the issue.
The attorney general’s office is declining immediate comment.
Shirvell went on a leave about a month ago after national criticism erupted over a blog he wrote characterizing student leader Chris Armstrong as a "racist" and "liar" who promoted a "radical homosexual agenda."
Thomas has said Shirvell’s actions were constitutionally protected as free speech.
No idea what we’re talking about? Here’s our original post, then the time he showed up on Anderson Cooper, when Mike Cox said he wouldn’t be fired, and when he inexplicably showed up on “The Daily Show” thinking it was a serious interview.
