According to hate group leader Mat Staver, Kim Davis has declared from her jail cell that the marriage licenses issued today in Rowan County are invalid without her signature. Yahoo News reports:
A jailed Kentucky clerk asserted that marriage licenses issued without her authority Friday to gay couples in Rowan County are void and “not worth the paper they are written on” because she didn’t authorize them, her attorney said. Kim Davis now wears an orange jumpsuit and “has already been doing Bible studies with herself” in jail, her attorney Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel told reporters after meeting with her behind bars. He said Davis is in very good spirits, and is prepared to stay as long as it takes to uphold her religious freedoms. “She’s not going to resign, she’s not going to sacrifice her conscience, so she’s doing what Martin Luther King Jr. wrote about in his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, which is to pay the consequences for her decision,” Staver said. Meanwhile, Staver said he’s preparing to appeal U.S. District Judge David Bunning’s contempt finding as one of several legal challenges on her behalf.
The Rowan County attorney and lawyers for today’s couples say Davis is full of shit. However yesterday Judge Bunning did warn that couples would be acting “at their own risk” by accepting licenses without Davis’ signature. In the clip below, Staver discusses his jailhouse visit with Davis, whom he says has no intention on complying with the court’s orders.
