Lesbian couple arrested for trying to get a marriage license…

A North Carolina lesbian couple were arrested Friday after twice being denied a marriage license and then refusing to leave the Buncombe County Register of Deeds office.

As part of the Coalition for Southern Equality’s “We Do” Campaign, Rev. Kathryn Cartledge and her partner of 30 years, Elizabeth Eve, were among the first to request a license two weeks ago, and after their second attempt Friday afternoon, they initiated a sit-in. After being asked to leave, police were called, and the pair was arrested around 4 p.m.
