Judge: #KimDavis' "good-faith belief is simply not a viable defense. Oaths mean things." http://t.co/JsM6chMt70 pic.twitter.com/ioKiZSbxaQ— Talking Points Memo (@TPM) September 3, 2015
As Chris Morley has pointed out in a series of comments here a little bit ago, the breaking news is that the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk defying court orders to issue marriage licenses (to all couples in the county, apparently, though gay couples are the target) has been sentenced to jail for contempt of court. Steve and I have not had access to an internet connection much of the day, and I'm just seeing the news. Chris's links will be very helpful for those of you who haven't yet heard the news.
