KY Governor Matt Bevin Gives Kim Davis Her Payoff

After all, Davis helped elect him!
KY Governor Matt Bevin Gives Kim Davis Her Payoff

Yes, Kentucky, elections do matter. And this time around, you've got a wingnut governor with some debts to repay, starting with the erascible Kim Davis, the county clerk with a grudge against gay people.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) has issued an executive order to remove county clerk names from marriage certificates in an effort to guard individuals like Kim Davis from violating their religious liberties.

According to the Associated Press, Bevin announced Tuesday that the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives will print a new certificates without county clerk names.

Personally, if I were a gay couple I wouldn't want that woman's name on my marriage license anyway. But it's the principle of the thing. The whole Kim Davis debacle was a big voter mobilization effort for Kentucky. Bring out the haters, and the wingnuts win!

Remember that when we're in the general election cycle in 2016.
