  • A clerk in a Kentucky county is still refusing to hand out any and all marriage licenses, in defiance of a court ruling ordering her to do so, because of her objection to same-sex marriage.

  • Airbnb has hired a Democratic operative with ties to the Clinton administration and several New York politicians in order to help it battle state lawmakers trying to control or ban it.
