    Really? Is that so? meh, I have never seen such self righteous full of crap bull in my life. Is there anyone here that can honestly say that they have NEVER had a couple of glasses of wine at dinner? or gone out to a sports bar for the game and had two beers then drove home? The only thing we know is that this person was ticketed for DUI which means that they were above .08 in most states. That's bad luck, not evidence of a 'problem', 'abuse' of alcohol, or anything else.

    Face it dana, the only reason you started this thread with the story you did, which was a stretch for you to link it to testing welfare recipients in the first place "mr. 'conservative' "

    If you people like supporting people that are drug users for real, then do it with your own money, but don't force me to do it.

    I was convicted of a DWI, and yes, in making a choice to drive impaired, I abused a substance - alcohol. In doing so, I put other drivers in danger. There is no difference between me doing it and some asshole hypocrite who demands that others meet a moral standard that he never intends to apply to himself. He should resign his office IMMEDIATELY!! By making a choice to drive drunk, he is much more dangerous than someone on welfare who smokes a joint while not leaving his house. And, because of his history of abusing alcohol, while putting other drivers in danger, he should be drug tested himself.

    This is just like today's Republicans - They make demands of others, while demanding no accountability for their own actions, even if those actions put others at risk. Disgusting.

If it is fair to test welfare recipients, then it is only fair that those who made that law be subject to the same law.

    Well assuming that she has to follow the rules everyone else does; she'll soon find out about weekly/daily testing.

    HA tell that to the f'n state! You have to go through all sorts of classes, therapy, evaluations, blah blah blah.

    In the end, I think that our punishments for DUI are excessive. By a lot. But this politician should damned well have to go through the same process as the rest of us (even though we all know politicians rarely face the same punishments as the rest of us).

    Well, first off, the difference between a DUI, and a DWI is pretty significant. Second, it is just a little more than disingenuous to link a DUI citation, as the same as advocating drug testing for welfare recipients.

    Can you tell us exactly what his DUI level was? Can you point to a history of drinking that leads you to claim that this man has a 'problem' with alcohol? Like say Teddy Kennedy? Or is this you just making a mountain out of a mole hill because of your own drinking problems?

    Re: State Rep. Kip Smith charged with DUI in Buckhead

    His own drinking problems? Comeon, you said it yourself. Almost everybody in their life (many times multiple times) deserved a DUI. We rely on the fact that there is inefficiency at catching DUI's. Did Dan have a "problem"? Can you prove it other than a single DUI case against him?

    DUI/DWAI are nothing more than State money makers.

    Well, Dan said himself that Smith had a problem because he got a DUI, and just "knew" that because he himself got a DWI which are two different things, but to use Dan's own reasoning if Smith has a problem, for a DUI then Dan has one surely for his own DWI, no?

    DUI and DWI aren't necessarily two different things. Some states use on or the other to mean the same thing. Other states use both terms to disinguish between drugs and alcohol.
