ASHLAND, Ky. — One of the plaintiffs in the gay marriage case in Kentucky testified that she actually voted for the clerk who has refused to hand out marriage licenses.
April Miller, a professor at Morehead State, said the past two months have been pretty demoralizing for her and her partner. She was asked during a court hearing Thursday whether a license would validate her marriage.
“Yeah, that’s what marriage is about – to show other people you are in a long-term relationship,” she said. “It is legitimized.”
She says when she went to get a license Tuesday, a deputy clerk told her she could go to a different county. Miller says that was kind of saying “we don’t want gays or lesbians here. We don’t think you are valuable.”
A judge jailed Rowan County clerk Kim Davis on Thursday for refusing to issue marriage licenses.
