    Horse****. You CANT be that stupid. Wait...scratch that...YOU can be. People get drunk all the time...some people just let down steam, relax, have a ball. He didnt 'abuse a substance'...he drove drunk. I find it very hard to believe that either of you two are truly as stupid as you appear. Rather...I think you both know how stupid you look but desperately cling to your argument because you just...cant...let....go. Dood...let it go. We get it. You are a hack that trolls the lib sites and bust a nut in your shorts every time you get a chance to post a thread like this about republicans. Thats all.

    No...he didnt 'abuse' a substance, any more than 100's of thousands of people that hang out at clubs and bars around the country. His crime was not having a few too many beers...it was having a few too many beers and then driving. He DID violate the drunk driving laws and he will and should have to deal with the law on the matter. But then...you really know all of that...dont you.

    Nope not because he is a Republican, but because he is a person saying that if you abuse a substance you should not get any welfare. Well, while alcohol is legal, he was abusing it by driving under the influence of it. So if you can't be on welfare while abusing substances, you sure as hell shouldn't be a state rep.

    If he doesn't step down, this is what we would call hypocrisy.

    And, Obama did illegal drugs and those same usual suspects are cool with that. Go figger, eh?

    I think DUI laws are bull**** in their current form, but this dude broke the law and he needs to be drummed out of the legislature.

    Yes, he blew twice and the intoximeter readings were 1.00 and .99. Smith first lied to the cop and said that he had nothing to drink. After slurring his words, failing to pass sobriety tests such as walking a straight line and balancing on one foot, Smith admitted to having one beer 45 minutes prior. It was apparent that he had had more than that, which the intoximeter clearly shows.

    His grandfather and his father were very involved in state politics. His father was forced to resign in December as the director of the Ga. Department of Transportation. Kip will skate as much as humanly possible on the DUI charge. Bet on it.

    did Obama say that if you abuse a substance you shouldn't get welfare? Hmmmm I think you don't understand what hypocrisy really is.

    HB 464 doesnt prevent people from consuming a legal substance. It doesnt address penalty for getting a DUI while on government assistance. Driving imparied is stupid, criminal, and illegal and should be dealt with by the law. I agree with Star in that he sets a bad example and gives poor representation of his constituents. He should face the legal system like any other citizen. Alcohol use does not equate to dependence or abuse. But then...you know that. He used a legal substance (in the same way I would bet many of the people posting on this have done...and recently) and simply made a very bad decision to drive. Its NEVER a good idea to drive if you know you are having even a single drink. HB464 has absolutely zero involvment with the use of alcohol. It doesnt call for the denial of services for drinking or for being caught on a DUI. It isnt even close to an apples and oranges comparison. He committed a crime...and he should and will have to face the music. Anything beyond that is nothing more than a bunch of kneejerk liberals scanning onbsure websites finding any article or incident they can find to attack a republican.

    With the exception of one of his detractors in this thread, all that matters is that he was a republican. Thats the only excuse they need. I agree he should face the legal system for his DUI. Im not sure what the Georgia legislature and precednece is on representatives and DUIs. I think his consitutents should decideif he gets reelected or not but agree completely he set a very bad example for a very stupid decision.

    I hope he doesnt skate on anything. DUI is a dangerous crime. Now...is that a driver making a stupid decission to drive or is it 'substance abuse' and if so, please explain how.

    Right, he committed a crime involving an intoxicating substance. Which is what HB464 does, albeit it concerns other substances. Is someone who smokes a joint every couple of weeks a substance abuser? No more than someone who knocks back a six pack ever couple of weeks. But the Kipper would nonetheless hold back assistance for food and rent from the guy who burns an occasional joint. He's a hypocrite.
