Kim Davis to attend president’s final State of Union Address

Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who spent five days in jail for defying federal court orders and refusing to license same-sex marriage, will have a seat at the president’s final State of the Union.
    
Davis’ lawyer, Mat Staver, announced Tuesday that both he and Davis will be in the audience "to stand for religious freedom and to represent Judeo-Christian values."
    
The Rowan County Clerk cited "God’s authority" and refused to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage last summer, despite a series of federal court orders.
    
Both Davis and Staver will sit in the House chamber.
    
Every lawmaker gets one guest ticket to the President’s annual speech. Staver did not say which members of Congress invited them, and no lawmaker has yet acknowledged extending the invitation.
