Yesterday Kim Davis told ABC News that she not only has gay friends, she’s personally denied them a marriage license. The search for these alleged friends is now on. First, let’s hear from Kentucky Equality:
Does Kim Davis have gay friends whom she has denied marriage licenses as she claimed to ABC’s Good Morning America? Are you one of her gay “best friends” that she claims to have? If you are, the media would like to speak to you to verify this claim because Kentucky Equality Federation simply doesn’t believe anything that comes out of this woman’s mouth. If you can verify her claim, please email us here on our Official Facebook Page and we will pass the reporters information to you.
The Daily Beast is also on the case:
The Liberty Counsel, which is providing Davis with legal representation, said Davis would not provide her gay friends’ names to them. “It’s her life,” spokeswoman Charla Bansley said. “I don’t even know who they are.” When pressed about the existence of these friends, Bansley stood firm. “I don’t think she would lie,” Bansley said. “Someone who goes to jail for her conscience wouldn’t lie about that.” Other attempts to locate any of Davis’s friends were also unsuccessful.
Dwain Wallace, Davis’s first husband said she did not have any gay friends when they were married. As for now? “I wouldn’t have a clue, to be honest.” Brian Mason, the deputy clerk who has granted marriage licenses in lieu of Davis, said he didn’t know if any of the eight same-sex couples he issued licenses to are friends of his boss. Two of the couples contacted by The Daily Beast said they were not friends of Davis. “I’m not sure,” he said when asked whether Davis knows any gay people. “I don’t know.” Mason added he doesn’t “keep up with her personal life” enough to know whether Davis hangs out with any gays, either.
Davis did not respond to an emailed query on the subject. (Tipped by JMG reader Str8 Grandmother)
