A deputy for the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed after refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples questioned on Friday the validity of the licenses he has issued since his boss' return.
In a filing with the federal judge overseeing a lawsuit against Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis for not issuing marriage licenses, the attorney for deputy clerk Brian Mason said he has "some substantial questions" about the new licenses Davis altered and gave him to issue after she returned to work on Monday.
He is concerned the licenses do not mention the name of the county. Davis has directed him to sign the licenses as a notary public, instead of as a deputy county clerk, Mason's attorney, Richard Hughes, said in the documents.
While Davis also does not believe the licenses are valid, no one has challenged their legality in court. Both the state's governor and attorney general have said the new licenses are valid.
You know I am really tired of this lunatic.
I think this is clearly an attempt on her part to render these licenses invalid, and though it may not work it is still defying the orders given by the judge which specifically forbade her from interfering in the issuance of these marriage licenses.
Personally I hope that the judge finds her in contempt of a court order and has her arrested again.
And I further hope that those Oath Keeper assholes try to interfere on her behalf, because I happen to know that law enforcement is ready for them.
