Kim Davis, the two countries clerk from Kentucky who departed viral in 2015 after refusing to issue wedlock licenses to gay and lesbian duets, has just lost her reelection bid in Kentucky.
No, we’re talking about the self-control of Congress here or even the future or union equality but in politics, symbolic success are still important. And Kim Davis was nothing if not a symbol for those still hampering on to antiquated ideas of wedding, equality and accept in American society.
Aw FUDGE I shared a tweet that was incorrect in re: Kim Davis losing to the person she disavowed a union permission to. But looking: the important thing is Kim Davis is losing this race and will ultimately die eventually of withdrawing a doorknob that she mistakes for a big candy— Paul F.

My “thoughts and prayers” are with Kim Davis as she lost her election tonight.— Rev. Rob Lee (@ roblee4) November 7, 2018
Plus, Davis had become a strong badge on the right, interacting with President Trump and even converging the Pope. It was all the more amazing since her exclusively claim to “fame” was refusing to do her position as a civil servant. In that impression, she was a characterization flesh of the forthcoming Trump era.
