Anti-Marriage equality county clerk Kim Davis loses election

Kim Davis, the country clerk who chose to be jailed rather than issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, has lost her job after she failed to be re-elected.

Davis was jailed for six days in 2015 after she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis said her personal beliefs did not recognise same-sex marriage despite the US Supreme Court ruling the same-sex couples had the right to marry.

The country clerk from Kentucky lost her position when she failed to gain enough votes in Tuesday’s election.¬†Democrat Elwood Caudill Jr received more votes and Davis conceded that he was the victor.
