Kim Davis' Deputy Clerk Vows To Continue Issuing Same-Sex Marriages Licenses -- Even if She Tells Him Not To
The media circus that is Rowan County Clerk's office just got weirder this morning. Mike Wynn of The Courier-Journal (via Raw Story's Tavis Gettys) is reporting that Kim Davis' deputy clerk has vowed not to listen to his putative boss in the event she orders him to deny marriage licences to same-sex couples.
U.S. district judge David Bunning released Ms. Davis under the condition she not "interfere" with the issuing of lawful marriage licenses. Yet, according to CNN, this is not a caveat "she is willing to accept."
Davis is off work today, but could potentially return tomorrow, leading to yet another spectacle and, if she keeps her word, likely imprisonment. Jeffery Tobin, CNN's senior legal analysis told CNN, "If Ms. Davis stops them from issuing licenses, then we are right back where we started and Judge Bunning has made it quite clear, he will lock her back up."
Given how much bankable fame she's garnered from this whole episode, there's no doubt a few more days in jail could stretch out her 15 minutes of fame and increase her market value in the Christian-victimization-industrial complex.
