CaptureSALISBURY, North Carolina (The Adobo Chronicles®) — The band Survivor has filed a $1.2 million lawsuit against Kim Davis and Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee over the unauthorized use of its hit song “Eye of the Tiger.”

Davis, the Rowan County clerk who was jailed after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, was released Tuesday morning, after serving six days in prison, to the sound of Survivor’s classic song “Eye of the Tiger.” The theme song from the movie “Rocky III” played in the background as she, her husband, and Mike Huckabee celebrated her freedom in front of cheering supporters.

The lawsuit is just one more problem for Davis, but a much bigger one for the former Arkansas governor in as far as his presidential campaign is concerneed. Huckabee is not only doing poorly in the polls but in campaign fundraising as well.  This past quarter, he reported raising only $2 million, which could be instantly wiped out if the lawsuit against him and Davis succeeds.

So today, Huckabee and Davis turned to the Internet crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to help them raise the $1.2 million they would need if the judgment goes against them in the Survivor lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Huckabee said he was willing to go to jail in Davis’ place.

Maybe, he will. And for sure, Davis will gladly join him.
