The Wages of Homophobia Are $225K

Davis, Huckabee, Bevin and every freakazoid pervert who cheered her on should have to pay.

And everybody who thinks this will slow down Governor "Only Straight Whites Have Rights" Bevin in his race to beat Mississippi back to the seventh century stand on your head.

Although Kentucky county clerks are elected at the county level, the Rowan County Fiscal Court had no influence over Davis’ decision in summer 2015 to protest the legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States by refusing to issue marriage licenses to anyone, U.S. District Judge David Bunning wrote in his decision. Therefore, it would be unfair to hold the county government responsible for her actions, Bunning wrote.

By contrast, Bunning wrote, Davis’ authority to issue marriage licenses was awarded to her by the state government.
 Bevin's fanatic support of kimbo may have gotten him elected that fall.  For that alone Davis should spend the rest of her life in prison.
