Carly Fiorina Slams Kentucky Clerk for Her Refusal to Issue Gay Marriage Licenses, Says its ‘Inappropriate’

Just as Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina was getting some favorable notice from Republican voters and even as news came that she might make the upper tier for the next GOP debate, Fiorina was heard to slam the Kentucky County Clerk who has been refusing to issue gay marriage licenses.

Fiorina appeared on the Hugh Hewitt radio show yesterday and at one point said that the actions of the county clerk were “inappropriate.”

GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina told the Hugh Hewitt show on Tuesday that it was “inappropriate” for a Kentucky clerk to refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

“Given the role that she’s playing, given the fact that the government is paying her salary, I think that is not appropriate. Now that’s my personal opinion,” said Fiorina.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, an elected official, vowed not to resign Tuesday under threat of fines and jail time after deciding not to issue marriage licenses to any couples – straight or gay – rather than be forced to comply with the Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage nationwide.
