Man Denied Marriage License by Kim Davis has Thrown Down the Gauntlet

Y'all.

A gay man who was denied a marriage license by Kim Davis is now running against her - CNNPolitics

His website, with a big red Donate button on top:

David Ermold |

Please spread this around everywhere and donate if you can. If he's able to unseat her what spicy and delicious schadenfreude we shall all enjoy.

It is not impossible for him to win, but he has an uphill climb. Sadly, he is getting more name recognition outside the state than inside the state. Rowan County is in a dark red spot of red state. Even though there are more registered Democrats outnumber Republicans almost 3 to 1, the country went for Trump by over 50 percent. However, Rowan has been a swing state. It went Republican in 2000, 2012, and 2016, and Democratic in 2004 and 2008. It is a college town, but it is also in "Ark Museum" territory

Good for him - but I'm going to let the people of Rowan County decide this on their own. I don't think I'd like it if people from NC started trying to influence Montgomery County politics.

As I do a double-take and wonder when you moved to MD.

I went to James Madison U right after being at the U of NH. It did not take me long to realize I went from Rockingham County in one state to Rockingham County in another.

It went Republican in 2000, 2012, and 2016, and Democratic in 2004 and 2008. It is a college town, but it is also in "Ark Museum" territory
Wikipedia says "This changed in 2016 when Republican Donald Trump won the county with nearly 59% of the vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton's 37%" which is still a lot but is 22%.

Also "As of 2014, the county had 14,263 registered voters.[17] Of these, 9,394 were Democrats, 3,929 were Republicans, and 626 listed themselves as members of other parties."

So some quick math -

9394 + 3929 + 626 = 13949

9394 / 13949 * 100 = 67% republican
3929 / 13949 * 100 = 28% democrat
629 / 13949 * 100 = 4% independent

Yah. But there are 3 other people running against her too who ID themselves as Dems so if not him maybe one of them will unseat her. Anyone who isn't a loathsome bigot will do.

The GLBTQ community (and many straight allies) are already starting to galvanize behind this guy across the U.S. The blatant bigotry and 'in-your-face' discrimination that happened to him and his husband became a national example of all of our struggle to just live our lives, marry who we want and be accepted as full and equal in this society. He is already getting support and monetary donations from all over the United States.

Since the basic right to marry hasn't really been a problem for you, your comment is understandable. Fortunately it won't make a bit of difference either way in how we support this guy.

If there are 9394 Dems out of 13949 how can the Repuglicans make up 67% when there are only 3929 Repuglicans? Your percentages show the Dems as being in the minority from what I see when they are in fact the majority.

Did I miss something?

If you donít want to donate, thatís fine, but I gotta say your rationale doesnít ring true to me. You donít want to influence local politics through donations? That didnít apply when you gleefully skipped through announcing your donation to one of those anti marriage equality campaigns. You do you Zaida, itís everyoneís right to support or donate to any cause, but in this your post feels disingenuous.

I still have that particular 'receipt' and damn near gnawed my hand off trying not to quote it up. Thank you Pancake for taking the reins because I definitely wouldn't have been able to be as diplomatic.

The article in WaPo says she recently went to...wait for it...ROMANIA to testify or something at one of their anti-gay marriage hearings or some such thing.

Why in the world would anyone in Romania give a rat's patootie what she thinks? And who sent her there??

The NYT has an article

Kim Davis, Once Jailed in America, Campaigns Against Gay Marriage in Romania

As for who sponsored it:

Quote:
The trip was organized by Liberty Counsel, a conservative American legal and advocacy group that represented Ms. Davis during the 2015 legal battle that saw her spend six days in jail for contempt of court. Ms. Davisís actions, which came at a watershed moment for gay-rights advocates, reverberated across the country and led to lawsuits.

There's currently a case before the European Court of Human Rights, involving a Romanian man trying to get residency status for his American born husband. No doubt she was trotted out to give some sort of "Stay Strong, Bigots" speech at a rally or somesuch.
