Notorious Anti-Gay Clerk Kim Davis Loses Bid for Re-Election in Kentucky

Kim Davis, the notorious anti-LGBT clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky who was jailed after defying a court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couple, lost her bid for re-election Tuesday, the Lexington-Herald Leader reports.

Davis lost to challenger Elwood Caudill Jr., a Democrat.

Davis became a national name in 2015, when she began denying same-sex marriage liscenses citing her personal religious objections and "God's authority."

She was ultimately held in contempt of court and served five days in jail.
