Kentucky clerk: Let people buy marriage licenses online
FRANKFORT - A Kentucky clerk of court wants the state to issue marriage licenses online so he doesn't have to.
Casey County Clerk Casey Davis says same-sex marriage violates his religious beliefs. He stopped issuing marriage licenses following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.
On Monday, Davis tried to meet with Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear to ask him to call for a special session of the state legislature. Davis says lawmakers should pass a law allowing people to buy marriage licenses online, similar to the process of obtaining a hunting or fishing license.
Beshear was in Louisville meeting with Humana officials. But his staff promised Davis the governor would meet with him.
A spokesman for Beshear says the governor would have to evaluate Davis' proposal.
