To many, Kim Davis has become a household name. The Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk has garnered national attention for weeks for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
Just across the street from her office, another local worker shares her first name — but Kim Tabor is tired of being mistaken for the embattled clerk, and she wants to clear up the confusion.
She made herself a bright orange T-shirt that announces: “Hello. My name is not Kim Davis.”
Tabor works for the circuit clerk. She says people calling from all over the country have confused the two Kims and have misdirected their wrath toward Tabor.
Tabor says most people she passes in her T-shirt smile and laugh amid the chaos swirling around town.
Protesters, television cameras and reporters have swarmed the government buildings where both women work. Tabor says she wants people who’ve seen her hometown on the news to know something: “We are so much more than what’s going on today.”
