Mike Huckabee Defends County Clerk Kim Davis

The Kentucky clerk jailed for her refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses continued her legal fight Monday, asking a federal appeals court to free her as she seeks ways around orders that she do her job despite her religious opposition to gay unions.

Kim Davis has been incarcerated since Thursday, when U.S. District Judge David Bunning found her in contempt for continuing to block same-sex couples’ attempts to obtain marriage licenses in her Rowan County office. Meanwhile, GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee plans a protest rally outside the jail on Tuesday.
