U.S. News has obtained court records which indicate that Rowan County clerk Kim Davis has been divorced three separate times. The first time was in 1994, the second in 2006, and the third in 2008. She’s currently on husband #4, but she insists he’s “the one.”
Davis gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband. They were fathered by her third husband, but adopted by her second. She worked at the clerk’s office while going through each divorce
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says Davis’ marriage and childbearing history is “not really relevant” to her illegally denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples on religious grounds. He claims her multiple marriages are “something that happened in her past” and that when she converted to Christianity four years ago “her slate was wiped clean.”
