Try this - *not* extensively tested!! Observe that it starts deleting
from point - ignoring where you stand, see comment in code?

(defun csv-kill ()
  (interactive)
  ;;
  ;; Should maybe start here with searching backwards for the beginning "," ??
  ;;
  (let ((p0 (point)))
    (if (search-forward "," (save-excursion (end-of-line) (point)) 't)
        (progn
          (while (looking-at "[ \t]")
            (forward-char 1))
          (kill-region p0 (point)))
      (message "No further comma"))))
