William Smith Jr. and James Yates, a couple for nearly a decade, were the first to receive a marriage license in Rowan County, ending a months-long standoff.
County clerk Kim Davis has refused to issue licenses since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in June. The Apostolic Christian had turned away couples again and again, in defiance of a series of federal court orders.
But on Friday morning, Davis sat in a county jail, ordered there by a federal judge who found her in contempt for refusing to follow his order that she issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
I found this tweet at Daily Kos which pretty much sums up the situation.
