Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk who spent five days in jail for refusing to issue gay marriage licenses in compliance with a judge’s order – and who resumed work a few days ago – is still not doing her court-ordered job, say same-sex couples who’ve tried to get their proper wedding documentation.
And they’ve taken their case back to court, saying Davis needs to fully comply or face fines.
Reuters reported Davis is issuing forms that contain material changes, not the original, official ones. Specifically, she’s taken the documents pertaining to marriage licenses and removed the references to Rowan County and her clerk’s office. Gay couples seeking marriages are instead given forms that list deputy clerk Brian Mason – the entity who issued the licenses during Davis’s jail time – as a notary public.
.... Mat Staver, the attorney for Davis, said the new filing is little more than a witch hunt.
“The ACLU’s motion to again hold Kim Davis in contempt reveals that their interest is not the license but rather a marriage license bearing the name of Kim Davis,” he said, Reuters reported. “They want her scalp to hang on the wall as a trophy.”
