I think he should be seated. Unless they can prove he bribed anyone or he was involved in the scandal.

Remember, we have innocent until proven guilty here. The governor hasn't actually been convicted of anything yet (we're putting the cart before the horse). Also, the notion that Senator Reid can just deny seating a Senator is preposterous. On Meet the Press he said, "We have the power to do whatever we want." Kinda scary if you ask me. The problem is that the Constitution only gives 3 requirements to be a Senator, and Burris fulfills all three, so you can't not seat him. Burris will win a Supreme Court case.

When Nixon said "When the President does it, it is not illegal," he caught a ton of flak. When Senator Reid says something similar, it goes unmentioned.
