Lindsey Graham: Kentucky Clerk Must ‘Comply With The Law Or Resign’


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday that the defiant Kentucky clerk who has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples must follow the law.

“As a public official, comply with the law or resign,” Graham told clerk Kim Davis when asked by conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt how Davis should proceed.

Hewitt then asked Graham if there is a middle ground between complying with the Supreme Court ruling and refusing to issue licenses.

“The rule of law is the rule of law,” Graham said. “We are a rule of law nation. And I appreciate her conviction, and I support traditional marriage, but she’s accepted a job where she has to apply the law to everyone and that’s her choice.”
