Just days after Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis declared that she has gay friends, The Daily Beast found a gay man who says he's known her for years.

Dallas Black told the online publication that he's known Davis his whole life and that the pair grew close after his mother passed away and she helped him with paperwork at the Rowan County clerk's office.

“Even after this all started, I went in a few days later and we spoke,” Black said. “We talked about how each other were feeling, and how we're gonna be friends even after all this.”

But Black now has his doubts.

“I really don't know who Kim is at the moment. I really want to believe that the kind, sweet person who was there when my mom passed away is still there. I was friends with Kim in the past, but I don't know this woman I've been seeing.”

“I somewhat feel like she is taking this to an extreme, because she didn't become a Christian until four years ago,” Black said.

He added that he's upset that Davis has turned Morehead into a “backwoods” laughingstock.
