Clerk Who Refuses To Issue Marriage Licenses Reopens Office
A Kentucky county clerk temporarily closed her office Thursday, hours after denying a marriage license to a same-sex couple. Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples in the two months since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage across the country.
A note taped to the doors of Davis' office said: "sorry our office is closed for computer upgrades. ETA 1 hour."
Davis and an entourage of deputy clerks walked out of the office and drove away. She declined to comment.
