Gay man denied marriage license hopes to unseat county clerk

Gay man denied marriage license by Kim Davis will run against her

Well now the most handsome thing has happened - one of the men she denied the right to marry his partner of 15 years is now running for Kentucky County Clerk against Davis!

Davis made headlines in 2015 when she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples following a Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriages.

"As county clerk, I will make sure that all citizens seeking out services will be treated with dignity and respect, and I will make every effort to deliver an efficient, professional experience to everyone", he wrote.

David Ermold, right, files to run for Rowan County Clerk in Kentucky as Clerk Kim Davis looks on Wednesday.

Wednesday, Ermold and his husband sat across a desk from Davis as they filed his paperwork to run for office.

Her case in 2015 drew hundreds of protesters and supporters to her office in Morehead, in rural eastern Kentucky. But after same-sex marriage became legal, the state's then-Democratic governor refused to issue an executive order to remove the names of clerks from marriage licenses. "I don't think the other candidates are looking at a larger message". Last month, Davis announced she would run for re-election and face voters for the first time since refusing to issue marriage licenses.

Davis's mother was the previous clerk, and Davis's son works in the clerk's office, as well. 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 and Moore, the same-sex couple was denied marriage license two years back.

Unusual Volume Spikes For: The Walt Disney Company (DIS)
Shares have moved $9.52 over the past month and more recently, $7.23 over the past week heading into the earnings announcement. The Walt Disney Company ( DIS ) reported loss -1.64% in recent buying and selling session with closing price of $ 105.46.

However, Ermold and Moore obtained a license on September 26, 2015, Reuters reported. He has two master's degrees, one in English and the other in communications, and teaches English at the University of Pikeville.

He is also the leader of the local gay rights organization Morehead Pride.

But Caudill, like many people in Morehead, doesn't want to talk about Davis and gay marriage.

"We need to restore the integrity of that office", Ermold said in a phone interview with Reuters after his campaign announcement on Facebook.

"You have to serve all the people, not just the ones you agree with", she said.

Ermold said Davis' position within the religious right is bringing more politics to the job.

"She does a good job and should be re-elected", he said. 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.

Ermold said he was also discouraged by politicians who used the Rowan rift to further their candidacies in the presidential primary.
