What’s the price for “maintaining your religious beliefs?” Potentially, $225-thousand. That is, if you stop doing the job you were paid to do.
Just ask former Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis – as lawyers for Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin are calling on former Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis to pay the nearly 225 thousand dollars in legal fees over her refusal to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples.
An interesting turn as the Republican governor has praised Davis in the past. Fast forward to now and his attorneys say Davis failed to do her job. A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati will hear the case tomorrow to decide who must pay the fees.
A district court ruled in 2017 that Kentucky must do so. The state is appealing that decision.
