This is unexpected — I thought fines were forthcoming, but Kim Davis is apparently also going to jail.
Federal District Judge David Bunning held Kim Davis, the county clerk who has become a national symbol of anti-gay animus for her resistance to marriage equality, in contempt of court on Thursday. According to Dan Griffin, a reporter for local news station WSAZ, she was led out by U.S. Marshals. The judge reportedly said that financial sanctions were not enough to ensure her compliance with the law.
Also, while she’s absent from office, other county officials have the power to issue marriage licenses. So her obstruction is at an end.
