Mike Huckabee Willing to Serve Jail Time for Kim Davis

As Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was released from the Carter County Detention Center in Grayson, Kentucky, 2016 presidential contender Mike Huckabee was by her side and he said "Lock me up if you think that's how freedom is best served, because folks, I am willing to spend the next eight years in the White House leading this country but I want you to know, I'm willing to spend the next eight years in jail. But I'm not willing to spend one day under the tyranny of people who believe they can take our freedom and conscience away."

Speaking to reporters, Huckabee said that Davis was a "brave lady" who was willing to go to jail for what she believed. Huckabee went on to say "I'm tired of watching people being just harassed because they believe something of their faith, and we cannot criminalize the Christian faith or anybody's faith in this country." Davis spent five days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. She was released the same day Huckabee planned a rally outside the detention center. Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-TX) also met with Davis in the detention center just after the judge ordered her release.
