(NEWSER) – Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis' husband yesterday said of his jailed wife, "Until something gives, she'll be there."
The AP today sheds some light on just how long that could be. US District Judge David Bunning has said he will keep Davis in jail until she agrees to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Her attorneys say there's only one way she'd cave: if Kentucky state law is changed so that marriage licenses aren't given out under the county clerk's authority. But the state legislature isn't scheduled to meet until January, and Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear says he will not call a special session, which he views as a misuse of taxpayer dollars as the issue impacts just one elected official.
