When will David Graves resign from office?
by Andre Walker
Persons who have been convicted of a felony involving moral turpitude, unless that person’s civil rights have been restored and at least 10 years have elapsed from the date of the completion of the sentence without a subsequent conviction of another felony involving moral turpitude are disqualified from holding elective office in the state of Georgia. (Source: page 117 of "Qualifications and Disqualifications for Holding State or County Elective Office in Georgia")
Now I don't know if DUI is a felony, but I personally believe that DUI is moral turpitude because drunk drivers have killed many an innocent person.
Once again, I ask David Graves to do the honorable thing and resign from the Georgia House of Representatives.
