Governor says marriage licenses are valid
MOREHEAD, Ky. - All sides appear to be satisfied with the way the clerk's office is handling marriage licenses in Kentucky's Rowan County.
Clerk Kim Davis returned to work today for the first time since she spent five days in jail for refusing to give licenses to same-sex couples.
Today, a deputy gave a same-sex couple one of those licenses -- which don't carry Davis' name, and which say they're being issued under court order.
A lawyer for Davis says that doesn't violate her conscience. And Kentucky's governor says the licenses are valid.
Kentucky state law requires that "every license blank shall contain the identical words and figures." But the governor noted that the federal judge overseeing Davis' case has not raised any objections to the licenses.
