The Bitch Is Back! – Kentucky Anti-Gay Marriage Clerk Kim Davis To Run For Reelection

 

The Kentucky county clerk who drew worldwide attention for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples two years ago will run for re-election next year, her attorney said on Tuesday.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis will run to retain her seat in 2018 despite suggestions from some people that she run for a higher local or statewide political position, said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel.

Davis’ case in 2015 drew hundreds of protesters and supporters to her office in Morehead, in rural eastern Kentucky. While she was in jail, then-Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz visited her.

Less than a month after she was released from jail, Davis, who won election to the office in 2014 as a Democrat, changed her affiliation to the Republican Party. – via Reuters

Mat Staver, of the anti-gay hate group and Christian Nationalist law firm the Liberty Counsel, which represented Davis during Davis’ blatant disregard of the law in the name of “Jeebus”confirmed Tuesday that she will seek a second term. He said Davis was unavailable for comment because of a medical procedure.
