Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and said that Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples, should follow the law.
Davis was scheduled to spend the Labor Day weekend in jail.
“Now, I respect the fact that this lady doesn’t agree, but she’s also a government employee. She’s not running a church,” Kasich said on the Sunday program. “I wouldn’t force this on a church, but in terms of her responsibility I think she has to comply. I don’t think — I don’t like the fact that she’s sitting in a jail, that’s just absurd as well. But I think she should follow the law.”
