"Her reaction to that was 'well apparently I'm just going to marry my dog, because we can just marry whoever we want anymore,'" Spawn said. "It struck a cord; I thought that was wrong, you can't compare beastiality with two consenting adults getting married -- they're not the same thing."

Pam Nelson, the country treasurer, condemned the clerk's remarks, and said "she has the right to think what she wants to think and say what she wants to say, but not on tax payer property and not on the taxpayers' payroll."

According to KSFY, the clerk told Nelson that there had been a miscommunication, and the clerk had been talking about her love for her dog, not the Supreme Court's decision.
