4 deputy clerks: No eligible couples denied marriage license


FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Four of the six people who work for Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk Kim Davis told a federal judge that no eligible couples have been denied marriage licenses.

Davis spent five days in jail after she cited “God’s authority” in refusing to obey a federal judge’s order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis’ deputy clerks issued the licenses while she was in jail. U.S. District Judge David Bunning then released Davis and ordered the deputy clerks to report back to him every two weeks.

Four deputy clerks filed their reports on Monday. Deputy Clerk Kristy Plank noted the only person turned away was a man who said he wanted to marry Jesus. Plank said the man was denied because “both parties were not present.”
