Anti-gay hate group Family Research Council will be represented at tonight's State of the Union address, of course, because Republicans continue to fight like demons to legalize bigotry; and they're inviting their new superstar to attend: Kim Davis to attend State of the Union.
The Kentucky clerk briefly jailed last year for refusing to hand out marriage licenses to gay couples is slated to attend President Obama's final State of the Union address, a source has confirmed to The Hill.
Kim Davis will attend Obama's speech Tuesday night after the Family Research Council arranged for her to be in the House audience along with her attorney Mat Staver.
The Rowan County clerk will be in the audience along with Jim Obergefell, the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case legalizing gay marriage across the country, who will be a guest of President Obama.
The really appalling part of this story is that a virulent hate group like Family Research Council is politically well-connected enough to get people into the State of the Union address.
