Should Burris be seated as Senator from Illinois?

I say he should be. Why not? There is no indication that he is involved in any way in the scandal (that has also yet to be tried/proven).

Blagojevich (who I suppose still gets the legal presumption of innocent until proven guilty) really threw a monkey wrench into the Democratic party machine with that move.

"you have a republic if you can keep it".

If they don't seat him they are the ones that should be thrown out. The law is clear.

They do have the power to throw someone out after they seat them, but they would need grounds and I doubt that someone else doing something wrong would be grounds.
