  • HAPPIER TIMES: Mike Huckabree's support and a papl audience didn't prevent an election loss for Kim Davis this year.
Allow me a moment of schadenfreude: Voters in Rowan County, Ky., voted this week to replace Republican county clerk Kim Davis with a Democrat in a 54-46 defeat of the woman who became a national figure for refusing in 2015 to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple.

In addition to being used for political purposes by then-presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, Davis got an audience with the pope in Washington, D.C. That meeting was arranged by a conservative priest who later was fired by the pope over the episode.
