What a waste of time, effort, and money that these crazy Repugs deny the poor but seem excited to spend for their PERSONAL agendas.
They have no more sense of actual civil duty than a fly circling a pile of crap which they created in the first place.

Beverly, great analogy. It seems to be that a County Clerk who breaks state law because of personal beliefes should at least be automatically removed from office, and possibly also arrested and charged.

I believe that Joanne and Beverly are both correct, and that if Dronenburg does not get his way in court, he ought to just leave the job. He can follow his conscience and take the appropriate consequences, rather than break the law while stying in it.

Poster boy for 1950s - GOP and Religious Extremists love this guy. Be very interesting watching the outcome...this is just a test; many other states will follow if it works. Noted and thank you.

All because an extremely messy Supreme Court decision made for political and not judicial grounds.

Noted. This guy's denial is strong....or maybe he's just mentally ill.

That's easy--refusal to do your job is called INSUBORDINATION and is grounds for dismissal!
