Kim Davis, the infamous court clerk in Frankfurt, Kentucky who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, is seeking re-election in 2018.
As the Associated Press reports, Davis intends to file for re-election during the filing period that begins tomorrow.
Naturally, Twitter jumped on the news — and had a lot to say about her revival.
“Kim Davis is trending and it reminded me of one of my all-time fav tweets,” user Brendan Scannell wrote, linking to a 2015 tweet that read “Kim Davis is like if a floor-length jean skirt were a person.”
Others pointed out the hypocrisy in Davis becoming a conservative hero for protesting at work while Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players are demonized by those same right-wingers for doing so.
“Colin Kaepernick: Protests in workplace seeking equality, blacklisted,” comedian Richard Jeter tweeted. “Kim Davis: Protests in workplace against equality, seeking re-election.”
“If you cannot do your job, you should not be re-elected to do that job,” user Alex Palombo wrote. “Kim Davis cannot do her job.”

I was really scared that maybe "Kim Davis" was trending because Trump had appointed her to a Federal position or something. Phwew.
