Kim Davis denied him a marriage license. Now he wants her job

A gay man who was denied a marriage license by Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis two years ago is now hoping to unseat her in the 2018 election.

David Ermold was denied a marriage license when gay marriage was legalized in 2015. She has held the clerkship since 2014, and her mother held it before that. "We've always treated people how we expect to be treated, and that's not the way it was".

"I shook his hand and told him 'Congratulations and may the best candidate win, '" Davis said. "I have an obligation here, really, to do this and to set things right".

Meanwhile, the Delhi police on Wednesday transferred the case to its Crime Branch for a detailed probe, a senior official said. While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family.

"I am running to restore the confidence of the people in our clerk's office and because I believe that the leaders of our community should act with integrity and fairness, and they should put the needs of their constituents first", said Ermold, 43, who teaches English at the University of Pikeville and directs Morehead Pride, a local gay rights organization. She was jailed for five days because she violated court orders.

"The clerk's position is more than a single-issue position, and that's all David has is one issue", Staver told the AP. The issue was solved when one of her deputies, Brian Mason, agreed to issue licenses, and in 2016 the Kentucky General Assembly established an alternate license. "It's a broad service to the public". At least three other Democrats have lined up to challenge Davis, who changed her registration from Democrat to Republican after the uproar over her decision. She made sure Ermold had all of his paperwork and signatures to file for office, softly humming the old hymn "Jesus Paid It All" as her fingers clacked across a keyboard. Her son, Nathan Davis, also works in the clerk's office.

"The county clerk's office has been in the hands of the same family for nearly 35 years", Ernold said. "I think I do a good job". But everyone should have a fair shot, it should not be something that's handed down from mother to daughter and from daughter to son. Ermold grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and came to Kentucky 19 years ago to be with his boyfriend, now husband, David Moore. While Republican Donald Trump overwhelmingly won the county during the 2016 presidential election, almost all of the local elected officials are Democrats and always have been. But local officials in Rowan County have typically been Democrats, the AP noted. But Caudill, like many people in Morehead, doesn't want to talk about Davis and gay marriage. Earlier this year, she reportedly traveled to Romania to lobby the country to outlaw same-sex marriage. The two are now married, and Ernold filed to run against Davis on Wednesday.
