Newly Uncovered Letters From #KimDavis Sheds Light

Anticipating a Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis wrote Kentucky state lawmakers early in 2015 requesting they exempt country clerks who had religious objections from being required to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Davis sent the letters about two weeks after she took office in January VICE News reports. In the letter (which VICE obtained through an open records request), she noted that county clerks could be exempted from issuing hunting and fishing licences under Kentucky law, and she asked that legislators allow her to “have the option, as a person who has deep moral convictions to choose not to discriminate any party, by applying for an exemption for the issuance of a marriage license.”
