David Ermold and his partner were filmed in 2015 being turned away by the Kentucky county clerk while attempting to obtain a marriage license.

A Kentucky man who was repeatedly refused a marriage license by county clerk Kim Davis after the legalization of same-sex marriage in 2015 announced Wednesday he is running to unseat her.

"It's official. I'm in!" wrote David Ermold on his campaign Facebook page in declaring his intention to challenge Davis for her position of Rowan County clerk in the May 2018 election.

[...]

Ermold, an associate professor of English at the University of Pikeville, told CNN in 2015 that being turned away by Davis was emblematic of the larger LGBT struggle.

"This is how gay people are treated in this country. This is what it's like. This is their experience. This is how it feels," Ermold said.

Davis was later jailed for several days for her refusal to follow the law, but was eventually released. A Kentucky law was then changed so her name would not have to appear on the marriage licenses.

Bigotry will always lose. It may peak ahead but it always loses steam. Until the non-bigots get complacent and think they don’t have to vote because they don’t like the candidate because she wasn’t always progressive or still isn’t progressive or because children got raped in a pizza shop. 

 

November 6th,2018. It’s a Tuesday. Be registered to vote. Encourage and force your friends and family to vote if they’re voting democrat otherwise tell them that Trump is amazing and that Republicans don’t need any help because liberals are too busy collecting welfare to go vote
