Ky. clerk sues Gov. Steve Beshear over gay marriage licenses

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky clerk sued for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples is now suing the governor.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis filed the lawsuit against Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear. She says he violated her religious freedom by telling all clerks they must either issue licenses or resign.

In June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled gay marriage bans unconstitutional.

Davis refused to issue licenses, and four couples sued her last month.
