Kasich: Kim Davis ‘Should Follow The Law’


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.”
