Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Plans To Go Back To Work On Monday

September 9, 2015 3:48 p.m.

Rowan County clerk Kim Davis plans to return to work on Monday, fresh off her five-day stint in jail for contempt, her attorneys said in a statement Wednesday.

Now back at home after her release from federal custody on Tuesday, Davis said in the statement she is “deeply moved” by the public outpouring of support from around the country.

“I love God, love people, and love my work. I hope we will continue to respect these values and that America remains a place where all three can live in harmony,” Davis said in the statement.

Although a federal judge ordered she not interfere with the issuance of marriage licenses, her legal team said her mind “has not changed,” and she intends to block gay couples from getting licenses once again.

Davis’ deputy clerks have issued marriage licenses to gay couples in her absence, although her legal team insists these licenses are not valid.

Davis was ordered into custody for contempt Sept. 3 after repeatedly refusing to issue any marriage licenses after the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage came down, citing her personal religious beliefs.
