1. The governor and the attorney general have said the licenses are legal. They have proclaimed it. I just don't know if that makes it so.
2. Kim's signature is not required. But the issuing office (County Clerk), the county, and her NAME are, by state law. None of these are on the licenses at this time.
Multiple outlets have reported that though Kardashian and Odom both signed divorce papers in July, a judgment was never entered into court and thus their divorce was never finalized. That means the two of them remain legally married and thus, according to the reports, Kardashian is in charge of making all medical decisions for Odom.
TMZ also reported that Kardashian has "already made several" medical decisions on Odom's behalf.
TMZ reported Tuesday night that Odom, 35, had suffered multiple strokes and organ failure, and that he was comatose and breathing with the assistance of a machine.
Here’s where it gets really interesting. Westboro says Davis sinned because she committed adultery, and sin is what’s led God away from us, so they end up advocating for Davis to give gay people the licenses they deserve. She helped usher in this modern tragedy, they say, so she might as well reap what she sowed.
A federal judge has ordered Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to decide whether gay marriage licenses issued by Rowan County clerk Kim Davis’ office were valid, the Associated Press reported Wednesday. A lawyer of one of Davis’ deputies said in a September court filing that Davis changed the forms by dropping her name as well as the county’s, weakening the legality of the licenses.
Terry Sebastian, a spokesman for the governor, said Wednesday that Kentucky recognized the licenses in question, the AP reported. Sebastian said Beshear will file a response and follow the court order. The judge’s order came a day after Davis’ lawyers maintained that the altered marriage licenses were valid because they were recognized by Beshear and Kentucky Attorney Gen. Jack Conway. www.ibtimes.com...
Lawyers for Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis say the marriage licenses issued by her office are binding — and no further action is required by a federal judge to change them.
“Marriage licenses are being issued in Rowan County, which [Kentucky Gov. Steven Beshear] and Kentucky attorney general have approved as valid, which are recognized by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and which are deemed acceptable by the couples who received them,” her lawyers said in court filings Tuesday. americablog.com...

So you mean more people wont be able to break the Law like she did, and hide beyond her Government Job and Religion to discriminate?
A month ago, these same lawyers were fairly adamant that marriage licenses issued while she was in jail, which did not include her signature, were “void,” and vowed to fight them in court.
But now that Davis has gotten her national exposure, meeting with the Pope and martyr award; and now that Liberty Counsel has gotten their national exposure and slate of new clients, they are all willing to give up the fight for their right to discriminate.
Since then she's changed the licenses to remove her name and to say they were issued under the authority of a federal judge. The American Civil Liberties Union thinks that undermines the validity of the licenses, calling it "a stamp of animus against the LGBT community." They want the governor to force Davis to reissue them.
The Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas will protest against Kentucky clerk Kim Davis Monday, according to its Twitter account. The church tweeted an image saying that the Rowan County clerk, who denied marriage licenses to gay couples on religious grounds, was a "proud, self-righteous hypocrite" and an "adulterer."
The unaffiliated Baptist church argued that Davis committed adultery by getting divorced and remarried four times. The Topeka-based group planned to protest in front of Davis’ home, according to Lex18.com, a local news website.
"That man that Kim Davis is living with, and calling her husband, IS NOT! Her husband is Dwain Wallace, who she married when she was 18-years-old. It was adultery at the beginning, adultery in the middle and it is indeed adultery today!," the group stated on Twitter.
The church, which previously targeted funerals of American servicemen and women along with popular figures, also told Davis to abide by the Supreme Court’s June order that legalized same-sex marriage across the country. The group said that god “does not require YOU to disobey to deal with this nation,” over homosexuals marriage.
