Who Is David Ermold? Gay Man Enters County Clerk Race After Discrimination

David Ermold Clerk Who is David Ermold? Gay Man Denied Marriage License By Kim Davis Runs To Defeat Her

A man who was denied a same-sex marriage license by county clerk Kim Davis in Kentucky announced Wednesday he will run against her next year. He wants Davis' job.

Remember how Kim Davis became basically the worst person in America when she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and went to jail for five days for breaking federal law?

In the two years since then, things have quieted down in this Appalachian town previously known for a college basketball team at Morehead State University that occasionally qualifies for the NCAA tournament.

Ermold filed his paperwork to run at the county clerk's office where Davis now works. They were one of the many couples who sued Davis after she refused to grant them marriage licenses on the grounds that doing so went against her religious beliefs.

But Caudill, like many people in Morehead, doesn't want to talk about Davis and gay marriage.

"I was very disappointed in the presidential election, and I think there needs to be more integrity", he said. "I have an obligation here, really, to do this and to set things right".

David Ermold, right, files to run for Rowan County Clerk in Kentucky as Clerk Kim Davis looks on Wednesday.

When it was over, she stood and shook hands with Ermold, telling him: "May the best candidate win".

"She loves her job and she loves the people", said Mat Staver, founder of the Florida-based law firm Liberty Counsel that has represented Davis, told the Associated Press last month. "I think I do a good job". The case was resolved when her deputy started issuing licenses and the state of Kentucky later created an alternate license that no longer required a county clerk's signature.

Davis has since changed her party to Republican.

Ermold's candidacy has already attracted some national attention.

However, Ermold and Moore obtained a license on September 26, 2015, Reuters reported. He has two master's degrees, one in English and the other in communications, and teaches English at the University of Pikeville.

According to a report in Chicago Tribune, Ermold believes that he is competent and highly qualified to run the office that keeps county's records of real estate transactions and vehicle registrations.

"People. are back home bickering and fighting with each other and fighting on social media", he said.

"This is how gay people are treated in this country, this is what it's like, this is their experience, this is how it feels", Ermold said in an emotional statement after he was denied a license for a second time in 2015.
