Rowan County Clerk and “Christian” warrior Kim Davis has violated the law again, according to the Attorney General of Kentucky. By failing to produce records related to a request from The Campaign for Accountability, a Washington nonprofit that says it works “to expose misconduct and malfeasance in public life,” Davis has violated the Open Records Act.
The records requested are “retainer agreements and attorney-client engagement agreements between her and Liberty Counsel,” according to the Herald-Leader.

The attorney general’s office asked Liberty Counsel in May for permission to privately review the documents so it could decide whether the exemptions cited are relevant. However, Liberty Counsel refused to produce most of the documents even for a private review, violating the Open Records Act, the attorney general’s office said.
“An agency cannot benefit from intentionally frustrating the attorney general’s review of an open records request. Such result would subvert the General Assembly’s intent behind providing review by the attorney general,” Assistant Attorney General Matt Jones wrote in the office’s opinion.
Davis and Liberty Counsel can appeal the attorney general’s decision by suing in circuit court. Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said Tuesday that the group has not decided whether to challenge the ruling. However, Liberty Counsel has provided its services for free, charging nothing to Davis or Rowan County, Staver said.
“There’s nothing to reveal here,” Staver said.
