Huge Accusation Made Against Kim Davis, It Could Land Her in More Hot Water

Free-Kim-Davis-913x512The remedy Kentucky clerk Kim Davis devised for handling marriage licenses may violate the court order that freed her from jail, according to court documents filed on Friday.

A document filed by Richard Hughes, attorney for Rowan County, Ky., Deputy Clerk Brian Mason, said that on Monday, Davis’ first day back at work, she “confiscated all the original forms, and provided a changed form which deletes all mentions of the County, fills in one of the blanks that would otherwise be the County with the Court’s styling, deletes her name, deletes all of the deputy clerk references, and in place of deputy clerk types in the name of Brian Mason, and has him initial rather than sign.”

This was in keeping with Davis’ pledge that she would remove her name from the license forms and substitute that of the court that first jailed and later freed her.

“It also appears to this counsel those changes were made in some attempt to circumvent the court’s orders and may have raised to the level of interference against the court’s orders,” Hughes’ Friday filing said.

The change means the licenses may in fact have some “substantial questions about validity,” the court filing said.

“It is expected there will be other parties to the action that will bring a request to this court for a review on whether or not her actions are against the orders of the court,” the court papers said.
