Kim Davis, former county clerk, who refused to provide marriage licenses to gay couples, may have to pay the $222,000 legal fees for the people who sued her. Her lawyers say Kentucky taxpayers should pay. Who do you think should pay the legal fees?

She should pay it. Unfortunately they probably won’t get any money from a turnip. I’m sure the plaintiffs attorney is hoping the state will pay.

Unfortunately she was acting as an agent of the state which likely means she is indemnified. With this in mind it falls to the taxpayer and not the individual who won or lost. You have to think on the other hand...what if she won. Should she be awarded or the state.

I know this is how the law works. Do you know if the State of Kentucky can sue Kim Davis to recover their losses?

Depends on how the case was filed.

Assuming she lost, she should pay.

Kim Davis should be held accountable for her actions.

Taxpayers shouldn’t pay her for not doing her job.

The abhorrent behavior was hers alone, and so should the cost of the consequences be.

She should be on the hook. She acted of her own accord and violated federal law. The state of Kentucky didn’t do it.

Why didn’t they fire her for cause?

She was. She even ran for re-election. She lost.

Man, she really should have just resigned if she didn't want to do her job.
