Kentucky Clerk Who Approved Only Straight Marriages Goes Straight To Jail.

By Michael Avery in Bizarre On 3rd September 2015


A federal judge held county clerk Kim Davis in contempt of court and ordered her jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses. Federal District Court Judge David L. Bunning issued a straightforward ruling on the matter, stating simply that Davis cannot break the law or selectively choose not to do her job as an elected public official.

“Every public official is subject to the rule of law. No one is above the law. That applies to the president of the United States and it applies to the clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, as well.”

The judge also declined to fine Davis, noting that outside sources could easily fund and pay those penalties for her. Following the judge's ruling, Davis was immediately handed over to custody of U.S. Marshals. For those keeping score at home, that makes four marriages, three divorces, and one arrest for this holy warrior of purely secular paperwork.
