Kentucky’s Rowan County clerk Kim Davis is in jail right now for refusing to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples (or anyone else, for that matter) — and forbidding her deputy clerks from doing the same. But it turns out that, with their boss behind bars, the folks in her office aren’t so bad.
This morning, Rowan County officially issued its first new marriages since Davis used “God’s authority” to pull the plug on legal matrimony. Bearing witness to these unions were a legion of news cameras, capturing another small victory for marriage equality.
