KENTUCKY: Kim Davis Files To Run As A Republican

The Associated Press reports:

A Kentucky clerk who spent five days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples has filed for re-election. Kim Davis filed for re-election last week, according to documents on the Secretary of State’s website. She had announced in November she planned to seek a second term. Davis will run as a Republican. Four Democrats have filed for the seat. They include David Ermold, a gay man who was initially denied a marriage license in 2015.

Davis was elected as a Democrat. You can toss a few bucks to David Ermold here.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    Well..duh.

  • Bob Black

    She is going to win. You don’t have to be a genius to look at that county and know that she will win.

    • Todd20036

      Probably. The best thing you can say about Kentucky is that it isn’t Alabama.

      • Treant

        And that they usually pork their cousins instead of their siblings.

        • Reality.Bites

          Either way, they’re still father and daughter.

        Kentucky is one of the easiest states to drive through, from Michigan to Florida. Low traffic, little construction, no big towns to drive through. With that said, I have stopped for gas or meals at small towns along the way and saw some backwards looking people. However, you don’t find that in Lexington proper which is actually a nice town. I think you can find pockets of good and bad everywhere.

        • JaniceInToronto

          If there are good pockets in Kentucky, the are small enough for Trumpolini’s hands to completely fill.

      • FAEN

        Yet!

    • james1200

      In a wave election, anything is possible. Democrats are running EVERYWHERE because they can win anywhere while Dolt45 is President. Remember Alabama?

    • I have quite a bit of family in Morehead (in fact my aunt was the witness at the wedding of two lesbians Kim denied a license). You’d be surprised. It is essentially a college town and most residents were REALLY pissed about the bad publicity she brought them. Most of Kentucky outside Louisville and Lexington is basically Alabama, but there are tiny pockets of decency. They actually have an anti-discrimination ordinance in Morehead.

      • Jeb

        Thank you. My sister and nieces live there, and I’ve visited Rowan County many times over the years. It’s a college town. Lexington is a small city that votes blue. Louisville is a big city (1.5 million people) that votes blue. The Kentucky bashing on this blog gets tedious.

        • I mean, there is a LOT to bash. There’s a reason this state is so poor. It’s because in most of it they’d rather make sure their politicians love White Jesus more than they care about economic prosperity. It is frustrating living in a VERY progressive city that basically keeps the rest of the state from turning into Haiti. But it is not as homogenous as folks would imagine. I’d guess Kim is going to lose.

          Sadly Kim was in jail in the town where i grew up. My nephews and niece got to see all the jack holes protesting for her on their way to school. I hate visiting there.

      • Robincho

        And a near-constant, ambient slurping sound. But you get used to it after a while…

  • Uncle Mark

    So the reviled refiled to defile her office. Got it

    • Tawreos

      Hopefully the citizens give her a denial.

  • Todd20036

    She was s democrat once upon a time, but I’d say that given how even moderate republicans have gotten tired of the Nazis, no one would elect her as a democrat anymore.

    So she embraced her Nazism.

    • Gustav2

      Throughout Appalachia folks were Democrats because granddaddy was a FDR Democrat. They voted D for local elections, then R for national. Sen Joe Manchin may be the last D to win in those areas.

      Some time ago a commenter was trying to convince me there were more Republicans now in national elections in those states, but he didn’t know these folks have voted R in national elections since Reagan.

      • Tawreos

        Ever since assholes Falwell and Robertson and their “Moral Majority” bullshit convinced them it is against god to vote for a dem in a national election.

  • Tawreos

    Sadly, she will probably win on name recognition alone.

  • JoeMyGod

    Davis won by fewer than 500 votes in 2014.

    • Karl Dubhe 2

      How many votes were there? 🙂

      501?

      • JoeMyGod

        About 8000.

        • Karl Dubhe 2

          Hopefully, the turnout in 2018 will be much higher.

          Everywhere. 🙂

    • Reality.Bites

      Good thing for her Trump is so popular./s

  • Robincho

    David Ermold — ya gotta love a gay man who lives in a town called Morehead…

    • BlackGayVeganAtheist
    • Tawreos

      Except now when people think of Morehead, they have to think of Kim Davis.

      • Tread

        Not for long.

      • Statistics Palin

        As in “If Kim Davis had given more head, she wouldn’t have gotten pregnant by a man who wasn’t her husband.”? I think that works as well.

      • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

        Well…even with Viagra, thinking of her would be a quick trip to Flaccidville.

      • clay

        I’m slow; I’m still thinking “Agnes”.

  • james1200

    I don’t think she’ll win, she’s looking rough these days.

    • Treant

      When they go from town pump to town dump, they tend to lose some popularity.

      In this year’s likely blue wave? I’m not sure she’ll keep her sweet little position. Which means her kid is out of a job too.

  • Uncle Mark

    Will her weight-watcher buddy, Mike Hucksterbeast, come out to endorse her this time…or does that only happen when he’s “running for President” and looking for donations?

    • Tawreos

      He only lets the little people near him when he is running for office, like most politicians.

    • james1200

      They work for the same secret organiztion so Fuckabee has no choice but to campaign for her.

      • Tawreos

        I thought he was saying look out it’s right behind you.

        • james1200

          What, the penis microphone?

          • Tawreos

            It’s part of a gaydar rig and seems to be pointing right at Mat Staver for some reason.

        • Uncle Mark

          He might have. “It” being Ted Cruz, who as y’all may recall also made a quick trip down there for a photo op with Davis (during their run for President), even tho’ Huckabeast threw this whole “gettin’ outta jail” shindig together. Hilariously, Huckabeast had the foresight to know what a cheap & opportunistic weasel Cruz was and posted guards to keep Cruz from crashing his photo-op party.

      • Uncle Mark

        Jeebus, they’re too fat to even hug each other !!

  • Sashineb
    • Tawreos

      That bitch ain’t never had a salad in her life.

      • Sashineb

        Ain’t that the truth.

      • Treant

        She did, once. Her quote was, “Right in front of my salad” and it was a traumatic experience for her.

        • Sashineb

          Oh, now that you mention it, I think I do recall that incident. Didn’t it go viral on Youtube??

        • Tawreos

          Because of the trauma she didn’t end up eating it and vowed to never attempt a salad again.

        • Robincho

          She makes Grant Wood’s American Gothic hag look like a young Raquel Welch…

          • clay

            (“That’s not a hag; that’s my daughter.”)

      • FAEN

        Veggies are for libtards. Duh 😉.

        • Tawreos

          Unless they are deep fried with ranch dipping sauce.

          • Robincho

            Pronounced “raintch”…

          • FAEN

            Worst dressing ever.

          • David L. Caster

            Not if it is made properly. Much of what passes as Ranch Dressing really isn’t.

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            Srsly? The first time I tried ranch dressing was I think back in the 60s and my response was, “Where have you been all my life?”

          • FAEN

            Srsly 😉

      • Uncle Mark

        Word salad maybe…but her kind call it “speaking in tongues.” The rest of us call it brain damage or too much bourbon

        • Grumpys cats Best Friend

          One can never have too much bourbon.

      • Bambino

        I wonder the dog she stole still alive.

    • Nowhereman

      She is so good at customer service…

      • Raja Mitchell

        Bah HAHAHAHA HAHAHAHA!!!

        • Nowhereman

          I hope I didn’t spray you with all my dripping sarcasm there…

  • bkmn

    Team David, all the way!

  • Joe in PA

    I hope her opponents stress how much she has cost the taxpayers.

    It’s the economy, stupid.

    • It was a drop in the states bucket unfortunately and not on the tab of the people voting for her alone.
      Not saying the rest of the state is any better.

      • Nowhereman

        Well, since Kentucky is a red state welfare queen, we ALL pay for it. They use that money to sue the federal government, too.

  • FAEN

    Kim is that fat slag at a pie bake off Bernadette was talking about.

  • Rex

    Kim Davis running is a mental image I don’t need right now.

    • FAEN

      She runs after ‘Happy Meals’. That is clear.

    • Treant

      It really gets ugly when the bouncing fat rolls reach harmonic amplification. She sometimes flips right over backwards.

    • Reality.Bites

      You prefer her lying on a bed waiting for you.

      • Gregory B

        Ice cream headache! Ice cream headache!!

      • Bambino

        With what she is wearing, I’ll be screaming at the kids to set the table.

      • Rex

        I’d have to try to roll her back into the ocean.

    • Uncle Mark

      I wonder if I run a Hefty bag of garbage against her, if her followers will be able to tell the difference…let alone her 4th husband

    • clay

      We have that tape of Alex Jones trying to get up to speed . . .

  • Uncle Mark

    If the taxpayers of her county are stupid enough to re-elect this self-righteous hypocrite, who cost them over a quarter million dollars, then they deserve her and all the money she’ll cost them.

    • FAEN

      It’s Kentucky right.

    • Bambino

      Need I remind you what it takes to defeat that PedoMoore in Alabama. To them deplorables she is Mother Teresa.

      • Uncle Mark

        Then they can pay the extra fees it will cost them all for their piety

  • Bluto
  • That_Looks_Delicious
  • boobert

    One democrat could probably beat her. Four will get her elected.

    • Phil2u

      I was thinking just that …. the diluted field. As opposed to the deluded?

    • clay

      That’s what primaries are for.

      • boobert

        Then never mind,lol. I wasn’t sure they would primary a county clerk.

        • clay

          There are non-partisan races in some smaller communities, but this is a medium-sized county.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    And where is the purloined puppy dog her daughter stole?

  • Michael R

    Three months ago she went to Romania to fight gay marriage

  • VodkaAndPolitics

    My dream is that she loses the election, bigly, and then refuses to hand over her office to her new GAY successor. The Sheriff’s department comes to the clerk’s office to DRAG her off kicking, screaming, crying, and shouting that God’s judgment will be upon everyone. They throw her in the clink AGAIN, and we paint the office a tasteful lavender color.

  • Nic Peterson

    Someone needs to run as a Gooper to split the sow’s vote count, three of the Dems need to understand they wont win.

    • Gianni

      After a primary vote, only one Dem will be the candidate for the job.

  • Mihangel apYrs

    In most cases, a senior govt job would be precluded from someone with a criminal record such as her’s

    • Bj Lincoln

      Oh! Lets hope that gets pointed out!

  • Ninja0980

    And another Dixiecrat leaves to go to the new racist, homophobic, bigoted party, the Republicans.

  • A lot of people didn’t know that Kim Davis was a Blue Dog Democrat – at least she is now where her rotten heartlessness belongs.

  • GanymedeRenard
    • Gianni

      She could say that with a straight face AND conviction.

      • GanymedeRenard

        Sadly.

  • j.martindale

    Thank you for changing parties, Kimmie. I hated the thought of having anything in common with such an obnoxious whore.

    • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

      She changes her parties as often as her religion and husbands.

  • Gene Perry
  • dcurlee

    I wish she would just run far away

  • R W C

    It’s too bad this is an elected position. Davis has already proven she has extreme difficulty being a non-partisan civil servant and changing parties to be a viable employee says to me the problems are not behind her.

  • JWC

    Just on principle vote her out

  • Bj Lincoln

    I hope someone keeps an eye on her ‘campaign’ money.

  • ted-

    She’s still alive?! Then this is proof, there is NO god!

  • Boss Dave

    If she really believed in god, shouldn’t he just miracle her ass into office without her needing to run or anything?

  • BillysWilly

    Such a cow

  • Jay George

    What’s that on her chin? Razor rash?

  • greenmanTN

    I thought she was running as a greased pig.
