David Ermold returned to the Rowan County courthouse in Kentucky Wednesday, almost two years after Clerk Kim Davis refused to give him a marriage license because he was gay.
Davis made headlines in 2015 when she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples following a Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriages. Ermold, 43, is an English professor at the University of Pikeville and director of Morehead Pride. At least three other Democrats have lined up to challenge Davis, who changed her registration from Democrat to Republican after the uproar over her decision. Davis, the chief clerk of Rowan County, cited "God's authority" and said her stance was motivated by her beliefs as an Apostolic Christian. "I don't think the other candidates are looking at a larger message". She spent five days in jail for refusing to abide by the court's ruling. Now, one of the first targets of her bigotry is coming for her job, and in a delightful twist, it turns that when you decide to run for county clerk, you have to file the relevant paperwork with. the county clerk. Davis was elected to Rowan County Clerk in 2014, and previously worked for her mother, the county clerk for 37 years.
"I think we need to deal with the circumstances and the consequences of what happened", Ermold said.
But in May 2017, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals revived the lawsuit because "We conclude that the district court's characterization of this case as simply contesting the "no marriage licenses" policy is inaccurate because Ermold and Moore did not seek an injunction - they sought only damages".
"The county clerk's office has been in the hands of the same family for nearly 35 years", he told the newspaper. "It should not be something that's handed down from mother to daughter and from daughter to son".
However, he told HuffPo that he believed Rowan County residents were "ready to move on from" Davis. In 2016, the Kentucky General Assembly established an alternate license.
But Caudill, like many people in Morehead, doesn't want to talk about Davis and gay marriage. But local officials in Rowan County have typically been Democrats, the AP noted. Earlier this year, she reportedly traveled to Romania to lobby the country to outlaw same-sex marriage. "He doesn't understand the office and the clerk's office is more than marriage licenses", Matt Staver, who represented Davis in her legal battles, told WKYT-TV.
"As county clerk, I will make sure that all citizens seeking out services will be treated with dignity and respect, and I will make every effort to deliver an efficient, professional experience to everyone", he wrote.
