Talking Points Memo, no friend of conservatism, is reporting that Ben Carson adviser Armstrong Williams called to scold them about asking about where Carson stands on Kim Davis and gay marriage:

“Dr. Carson has said since the Supreme Court ruling that it is the law of land and that’s what he respects,” a highly agitated Armstrong Williams told TPM in a phone interview


“And guess what? We called you personally to make sure you were no longer confused,” Williams said. “If I sound so forceful for it, it’s because we are … there’s no agenda here unless you create one.”

TPM reached out to Carson when Buzzfeed reported the Carson campaign responded to a request for his position on the Kim Davis controversy by referring to the candidate’s statement (not a good one) in June after Obergefell.  A call to the campaign did not produce an immediate callback, but Armstrong Williams returned the call:

“It is old news,” a clearly annoyed Williams said of Carson’s marriage views. “You are trying to create something that’s new.”

Armstrong Williams has no formal position with the Carson campaign, although he is involved as a friend.
