KENTUCKY: 2013 Story Claims Renegade County Clerk Linked To Dog-Napper

The video of Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kimberly Davis turning away a gay couple continues to go wildly viral and has racked up over 1.2 million views at this writing. Meanwhile a tipster points us to a 2013 story about a man who reportedly had his dog stolen at a Rowan County gas station. The young woman alleged to have stolen the dog was caught on surveillance video as she drove away. Take it away Page One Kentucky:

She was driving a minivan believed to be owned by Rowan County Chief Deputy Clerk Kimberly Davis, her mother, who also happens to be running for Clerk. She has refused to help Madden retrieve his dog and has gone so far as to call the police on him for begging for assistance. Allison (the alleged dog snatcher), according to security camera footage, put the dog on her own leash and fled with him, never asking if anyone was the owner of the dog, never calling BP to see if anyone was looking for their dog. Madden, prior to going public with his heart-breaking search for his dog, offered her cash for his dog to no avail. Now he’s offering a reward to anyone who can return him. It’s beyond sad. But what takes the cake is that Ally Mae Davis/Allison Mae Mccintyre admitted to Madden that she was the individual in the surveillance snapshots.

From a 2014 update on the story:

Remember the daughter of Kim Davis, who stole Ross Madden’s dog in Morehead last year? Nothing ever happened to her. The dog was never recovered. Local police officers and the sheriff sat on their hands. The County Attorney, Cecil Watkins, recused himself and pushed everything to Carter County. The Assistant County Attorney there also sat on his hands. Why? Because Eastern Kentucky is a pustule of awful. Everyone turns a blind eye to corruption. When their friends or children of their friends get caught? They sweep it under the rug. So we thought it’d be a good idea to revisit that sad mess by pointing out that Kim Davis barely squeaked by in her primary for Rowan County Clerk.

NOTE: I’ve not found any substantiating reports regarding the above claims.

    Allie Mae? Sweet Jesus.

    • clay

      She’s into 2Pac and pot. I’m guessing her mother is NOT on the Facebook.

      Married 4 times? She’s a closet lesbian!

      • oikos

        What sane man would marry her? They must all have been close relatives. Cough, cough duggar, duggar.

    • Wynter Marie Starr

      I guess she’s already ripped out all of the pages regarding divorce from her book of mythology. What a damn bigoted hypocrite.

    • Stev84

      According to Snopes that hasn’t been verified. But it would hardly be surprising.

      • Corina Jamison

        She stole that dog. On her Facebook page she is one of those posters who always tell the world how miserable they are. She was whining in November 2013 about ending her addiction and getting dumped from another lousy relationship.

  • TampaZeke

    If I were the local newspaper editor I would headline that photo: “Kentucky Kounty Klerk Refuses Marriage License with a Sieg Heil Salute”

  • another_steve

    “…a pustule of awful.”

    Surely, the word highlight of my day.

  • amboy00

    She stole a dog? I want nothing to do with that family’s values.

    • Since the dog was not recovered, one may presume that it may have been “et.”

  • Goodboy

    I wonder what God thinks of stealing others beloved pets?

      Larceny for the Lord is encouraged…in the book of Embezzelonians 4:11.

        I generally don’t engage in the mocking of others’ faiths, but that is so good that I must commend you for it.

  • ScottChicago

    Her daughter kidnapped a dog? Doesn’t sound very Biblical in values to me. I also believe there is an injunction in Leviticus about not “lying with beasts.” Not that I am necessarily implying anything …

    • It would be reckless not to at least entertain the possibility. We’ve all heard how those mountain folk can be….

      • JT

        It’s woman on dog stuff that Santorum doesn’t get so hot and bothered about and is therefore not talked about as much.

    • clay

      The Bible says “Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s ass” but snatching a poodle’s no biggy.

  • SFBruce

    According to The New Civil Rights Movement, the governor of Kentucky, Steve Beshear, in a one on one meeting with another Kentucky clerk, Casey Davis, who’s refusing to issue same sex marriage licences to either do his job or quit. Coming out of the meeting, Davis announced his intention to continue to deny same sex licenses, and he won’t resign. I don’t know if Casey is related to Kim.

    • clay

      Mr. Davis is also serving as pastor of a church.

    • JT

      Casey and Kim have the same father who did the natural marriage thing with two of his sisters.

      • clay

        First name “Jeff”?

    • RaygunsGoZap

      Wow! The county attorney and the governor both show up and lay out the professional duty and legal obligation and this guy is all “nope”

  • Ninja0980

    Are we really shocked anymore by the fact people who scream about moral values are the worst kind of hypocrites?

    • skeptical_inquirer

      I’d laugh if it turns out she’s into swinging and threesomes as well.

      • David F.

        I’d hurl.

  • Small towns are small for a reason.

  • clay

    You know who else snatched a dog and tied it up. . .

    • Treg Brown

      If history is an indicator, this won’t end well. Or dry.

  • The rotten apple does not fall far from the crooked, poisonous tree.

    • clay

      and that tree appears to have inherited the County Clerk slot from granny! At least she’s acting like she didn’t have to run for election (in which she got only 46% of the votes) to win by only 23 ballots.

        The “C” word is out too.

        • StraightGrandmother

          YES! And isn’t that WONDERFUL!!!
          When the Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights tweets out that the C word is misogynistic and calls for ending it’s use, people listen. So glad I can open up comments on JMG and never be offended by seeing that word here.

      Okay, then how about an “imprecatory prayer”? Psalm 109:8 “May his days be few; may another take his office.”

      • another_steve

        Reminds me of that line from “Fiddler on the Roof”:

        “May the Lord protect and keep him…far away from us.”

        • stuckinthewoods

          that works. The one I posted is an actual psalm but we do need an acceptable euphemism that still respects Joe’s Rule. I like Psalm 58:6 “O Lord, break the teeth in their mouths.” It ain’t mean cuz it’s, like, prayin’ an all.

          • another_steve

            I have a personal devotion to Psalm 309, which reads in part:

            O Lord of The Naughty Bits, I beseech you to send me thy Brad Pitt — only to comfort me and bring me ever more close to thee.

            It’s, like I say, a personal devotion.

    It’s true because I’ve just decided it’s true. If she gets to turn the law on its head because she has hurt religious fee-fees I can decide she is guilty without a trial.

        • Anastasia Beaverhousen

          They were puppies then. They are old English sheepdogs. They have a much older brother too.

          • Octavio

            I like the way they look as puppies. The look like they are smiling. I like dogs that smile. 🙂

  • John

    Sounds like a a shit hole of a county, a shit of a county attorney and I can’t even describe what a piece of something-even-worse-than-shit this clerk and her daughter are.

  • Sean Taylor

    I’m puzzled how these low level clerks can be allowed to determine which laws they’ll follow and which they won’t. I mean everyone, has a boss, surely this nutjob isn’t autonomous. I wrote the governor, it won’t change anything but I took action, I had to.

    • J̶a̶l̶a̶p̶e̶ñJoe Smithson

      I wondered that as well during the Florida debacle. It seems these clerks are at the top of the food chain and can their offices as they see fit. In many places they don’t report to a higher official. Of course, they answer to the people who elected them and must follow all laws. They would be compelled to seek legal counsel when they have any conflicts. The recourse for the people is to file a lawsuit.

      • Stev84

        The idea that elected officials “answer to the people” is pure BS. It sounds nice, but elections aren’t a proper way to hold people accountable. At least not in such small communities. In practice, the same scumbags get elected again and again. Either because they are popular for some reason or “the people” are uneducated. Often they don’t even have challengers or almost always beat challengers.

        The only way to keep officials of lower political subdivisions in line is through oversight by higher officials who aren’t involved in the local drama.

        • J̶a̶l̶a̶p̶e̶ñJoe Smithson

          Agree 100%. Never underestimate the power of stupid, bigoted people in large groups.

          • Talisman

            It’s not so much large groups. Few people bother to vote in local elections. While in NYC, “few” might be a couple of million, in many small southern towns, there might only be a couple of hundred, if you’re lucky.

          • Stev84

            Most numbers I saw for school board or country clerk elections is a few thousand. But obviously it depends on the size of the election district or county. It really doesn’t take much to get elected. Which is why the religious right made school boards their prime target early on.

          • J̶a̶l̶a̶p̶e̶ñJoe Smithson

            Yep. The last time we had an election here, in the small Southern town where I live, about 1300 people showed up. Mostly old, white repubs. You should have heard the wailing and gnashing of teeth when the ballot measures that many people didn’t want, passed. They won’t vote and they won’t learn yet wonder why our forward progress into the future is anchored in the past by an old white leg with a rolled down knee stocking.

    • clay

      In a lot of small population counties they not only record vital records (sorry, I don’t recognize your request for a birth/death certificate), but also register deeds (no, I won’t let you buy or sell any real estate), and are in charge of licenses and inspections (no, you can’t build that gay addition or open that queer cafe). In most places they are in charge of local elections, as well (corruption, much?).

      • noni

        They are also in charge of who can vote and who can’t.

        • leastyebejudged

          It’s so incestuous and throw in that they all belong to fucking cray cray churches like this one, and it becomes clear why some of these places are literally hell on earth :

    • DetailBear

      Americans elect a lot of officials that are public employees in any other jurisdiction. I’ve never understood how you can pick a good judge, district attorney, sheriff or dogcatcher by election.

      • leastyebejudged

        It’s a popularity contest. If the majority of voting locals are pieces of shit, you’re going to have pieces of shit elected.

        I’m actually all for this; let all the pieces of shit move there and get them the fuck away from my community.

  • bambinoitaliano

    All gay people want are to be treated equally see. But hicks like her has to be nasty. Look what happen when you get nasty? People gonna look into your past and dig your shit out now. Sigh, these people will never learn. Quietly issue the marriage license and we all go on about our lives. Now they gonna get their asses whoop in the public.

  • j.martindale

    The Democratic Governor of Kentucky told her and other clerks to do their job or resign. He also said they swore the oath to uphold the Constitution, and that the Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution regarding marriage. Good on him!

  • Steven Leahy

    I know we’re focusing a lot on this clerk but I wish Joe would post more on this clown, who IMO is even worse. NCRM is giving this guy a lot of coverage.

    • gaymex

      Yeah, that’s incredible–basicly telling the governor to get fucked.

      • Steven Leahy

        I watched about 1/10 of his press conference and got so disgusted with his arrogance and self righteousness interspersed with bible verses I had to turn it off.

  • MrRobotoLA

    I can attest to Eastern Kentucky being “a pustule of awful.” Back in the 1990s, my aunt and her criminal husband moved there. He “found Jesus,” went through bible college, got his ministerial license, got hired by a local church as their minister, then he started beating her. Constantly. Finally, one night, he beat her so badly, she grabbed their kids and fled to the local emergency room. She found a lawyer who called on a local judge that night to grant her temporary custody of the kids, while she sat in a hospital room getting sewn back together by doctors & nurses. The judge? He was pissed off that she woke him up in the middle of the night. He was pissed that she’d dare to try to take a good Christian minister’s kids away from him, so he granted HIM full custody of the kids and created a stay-away order for her to stay away from their kids. She never got custody back. After two years of legal battles, she finally gave up. The only way she got her two boys back was when they both chose to run away from their dad in their later teen years. Oh, and just to make things special, he eventually got arrested for dealing drugs and lost his ministry.

    Eastern Kentucky. The last exit on the road to Hell as far as I’m concerned.

    • leastyebejudged

      Wow… Just wow…

      THAT should be a Lifetime movie.

  • TheManicMechanic

    Kidnapped a dog? Since it wasn’t recovered she probably gave it to Mike Huckabee’s brat son.

  • Garth

    I just posted the article to Morehead State University’s FB page asking why they would have someone like Ally Mae Davis as a “youth leader”.

  • Robincho

    She seems nice…

  • StraightGrandmother

    I would like to change the focus from the Clerk to Charlie Brown the stolen dog. Listen we ALL should help get that dog back, we know how to use social media to do this. It looks like there is a cover up going on here, a man got his dog stolen, a woman admits it was her in the pictures lets mount up and help Morgan get his dog back.

    I e-mailed PageOneKentucky and asked them to run a follow up story to update us on Charlie Brown and also to re-open up comments on the original thread. Where is ZyaKitty?

    Madden, prior to going public with his heart-breaking search for his dog, offered her cash for his dog to no avail. Now he’s offering a reward to anyone who can return him. It’s beyond sad.

    But what takes the cake is that Ally Mae Davis/Allison Mae Mccintyre admitted to Madden that she was the individual in the surveillance snapshots:

    Despite all of that – and footage of her putting the dog into the vehicle – law enforcement has been dragging its feet in taking action. Presumably because of who her mother is. Small town politics seem to muddy the waters.

    Requests for comment from Davis and folks Jake knows in the County Clerk’s office have not been returned/refused.

    So who will step up to the plate to get this man’s dog back to him? Police? The alleged thief? Maybe her mother, Kim Davis?
