From the article: Senate President Michael Waddoups said Killpack's father was killed by a drunken driver when Killpack was a teenager. He also said he didn't know Killpack, who is a member of the Mormon Church, which frowns on drinking, was a drinker, the newspaper said.

I suppose, too boot, that he wasn't wearing his special underwear.

Killpack also takes money from Big Tobacco. From another article:

Senate Majority Leader Sheldon Killpack, who received $1,500 last year from Altria, said he has no problem taking the money and disclosing it, but it doesn't affect his votes.
"If you can't look at somebody straight in the face and take their money and vote according to your conscience, you probably shouldn't take the money," Killpack said.

Altia is the parent company of Phillip Morris, the maker of Marlboro and other cigarettes.

Way to go Killpack, you jerk! If you want to make Mormons look like hypocritical jack@$$es I really don't care, but thanks a lot for making Utah and the Republican party look bad.

I rest my earlier case. So tell us, when and why did you become an obsessed Mormon-hater?

There’s no friggin’ excuse for this. May he lose his job and go to jail for a long time.

Talk about shattering allusions with one taboo - though a dangerous one at that when behind the wheel of a car.

He added he is "prepared to accept all personal, legal and political consequences for my actions."

As well he should. It is strange that the very weapon that took his father, he partook in.

Killpack issued a statement in which he said he is "deeply sorry for the impact this incident will have on those who support and trust me -- my colleagues in the Senate, my constituents and, most importantly, my family."

Oh my...do all politicians have this boilerplate BS tattooed on the inside of their forearm so they can read it off when the time comes or do they just have it memorized by heart? Pathetic.

What has Orrin G. Hatch said? This will make it harder to keep UT Republican.
