Rather than issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the County Clerk in Henderson has decided to quit her job instead.

Rusk County Clerk Joyce Lewis-Kugle submitted her resignation letter last week and said she couldn't issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in good conscience.

County commissioners are scheduled to vote on her resignation today, but most seem to think it will be accepted.

KHOU reports Lewis-Kugle asked about her options, and the District Attorney told her she had a choice of issuing the license or resigning in protest and she chose the latter.

Think this will make national news? Something tells me it will.
