Jailed Clerk: Gay Marriage Licenses Void

Jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who is spending Labor Day weekend in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, met with her attorney Friday and insisted any licenses issued in her absence are void and “not worth the paper they are written on” because they weren't approved by her. Her attorney, Mat Staver, compared Davis to Martin Luther King Jr. “She’s not going to resign, she's not going to sacrifice her conscience, so she’s doing what Martin Luther King Jr. wrote about in his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, which is to pay the consequences for her decision,” he said.
