KY. CLERK DOESN’T INTERFERE AS MARRIAGE LICENSE ISSUED
Under the threat of more jail time, Rowan County (Ky.) Clerk Kim Davis remained out of sight Monday as one of her deputy clerks issued a marriage license to a lesbian couple, drawing heckles from some anti-gay protesters who questioned Davis’ decision not to interfere.
Davis said earlier in the day that, while she still refuses to authorize marriage licenses, she will not stand in the way of a deputy clerk who began providing them more than a week ago.
Davis had been jailed for six days on a contempt of court charge.
