The pest who will not go away Kim Davis is back in the news because she is being sued again by couples for altering the marriage licenses issued by her county. They have asked the federal judge to hold her once again in contempt for not following his order to refrain from interfering with the license issuing process.
On Friday, the lawyer for Deputy Clerk Brian Mason, who has been issuing licenses since Davis was jailed, told the court Davis confiscated the licenses upon her return and gave him a document that removed references to Rowan County and Davis’ office and required him to list his title as a notary public.
The changes run afoul of Bunning’s order, the filing by the lawyers for the plaintiffs said. At the minimum, she has created considerable uncertainty for marriage applicants about their licenses and subsequent marriages, the filing said.
Bunning should direct that licenses be issued under the former format and the office reissue the licenses issued in the past week that could be open to legal challenges, it said.
Davis has also started doing a round of media interviews with her poor, persecuted Christian shtick, wondering why people won’t let her follow Jesus rather than the law.
