These are nine facts you should know about Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. You’ll be surprised to hear which political party she associates with, along with what life event made her such a devout Christian. Most surprisingly, she doesn’t actually OPPOSE the issuing of gay marriage certificates. Find out everything you need to know about the famous controversial clerk below.
1. The Political Party She Supports
Now many may assume because of her conservative Christian stance on same sex marriage, that the Kentucky clerk votes red. However, Davis is in fact a registered Democrat. She won a three-way Democratic primary last year by 23 votes. She then went on to defeat Republican John Cox with 53 percent of the vote in last November’s general election.
2. Clerking Runs in the Family
Kim Davis’ mother, Jeanne Bailey, served as Rowan County clerk for over 37 years before she decided to retire in 2014. Davis worked for her mom as a deputy clerk for 26 years before succeeding her mother by becoming the current Rowan County clerk in the fall of 2014. Davis’ son, Nathan, works in her office as one of the deputy clerks. While Davis was jailed in contempt of court, her son continued to refuse issuing marriage licenses although the U.S. District Judge had demanded all clerks to do so.
