I'll do one better, I'll repaste your post. In it there is not a single solitary reference of Smith excommunicating an individual for breaking the WoW, NOT ONE PERSON IS REFERENCED. And in a lie you have lied a few times about you keep stating in the below information Smith excommunicated a person for breaking the WoW and that info isn't there, so what now oh honest and truthful one? Care to admit you misread the info or are you ready to continue your lie?<quoted text>
Go back and reread it if you want. I'm not repeating myself.
PS...five charges were levied at Whitmer, not a single charge of breaking the WoW as you insinuated in a lie.

It was commandment enough that he excomunicated people for breaking it:
Orson Pratt once quipped: "I do not wonder that the world say that the Latter-day Saints do not believe their own revelations. Why? Because we do not practice them" (Journal of Discourses, vol. 17, p. 104).
We have shown that Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon church, did not keep the Word of Wisdom, yet, according to Joseph Fielding Smith, the Prophet Joseph Smith taught that a member of the church could not hold an office unless he observed it: "... Joseph Smith, who presided, gave his decision as follows:'No official member in this Church is worthy to hold an office after having the word of wisdom properly taught him; and he, the official member, neglecting to comply with or obey it.' This decision was confirmed by unanimous vote" (Essentials in Church History, p. 169).
It is certainly perplexing that Joseph Smith could break the Word of Wisdom and yet retain his position as president of the church. The thing that makes this especially strange is that when a member of the church did not observe the Word of Wisdom, this was sometimes used against him if he was tried for his fellowship. Leonard J. Arrington stated: "Moreover, when a council at Far West tried a high church official (David Whitmer) for his fellowship, the first of the five charges against him was that he did not observe the Word of Wisdom" (Brigham Young University Studies, Winter 1959, p. 40). As we have already shown, when Almon W. Babbitt was charged with not observing the Word of Wisdom, his only defense was that he "had taken the liberty to break the Word of Wisdom, from the example of President Joseph Smith, Jun., and others."
