Kentucky: Deputy Clerks Would Issue Marriage Licenses But Are Afraid Of Kim Davis

According to Shannon Ragland at Kentucky Trial Court Review, Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis is acting on her own in regard to her noncompliance to the ruling on same-sex marriage by SCOTUS.

In an interview with Cecil Watkins, the Rowan County Attorney, Watkins said that deputy clerks would issue lawful marriage licenses, if allowed. But Davis has made them afraid to do so.

Watkins added that if Judge Bunning instructs them to do so, they will.

Watkins also said Davis has put her employees and everyone in the courthouse in a “terrible position.”
