Official Bikes Across KY to Support Embattled Clerk
A Kentucky county clerk is bike riding across the state to bring attention to the plight of Kim Davis, the Rowan County clerk who is fighting a legal battle for her refusal to issue marriage licenses.
Casey Davis, who serves as a clerk in Casey County, will bike ride more than 460 miles across the state. He began the ride before dawn Thursday in Pikeville and plans to ride to Paducah.
The ride is a display of support for Rowan County clerk Kim Davis.
Kim Davis is still refusing to issue marriage licenses, even after a federal appeals court upheld a judge’s directive to issue the licenses earlier this week.
She stopped issuing licenses after the U.S. Supreme Court made gay marriage a constitutional right in June. On Thursday, her office denied a marriage license to a gay couple for the third time.
Casey Davis also stopped issuing all marriage licenses because of his Christian faith, but so far, he is not facing a legal battle.
