Subject: I feel like the fact that he was elected matters... - [Edit Post] 1 0
if we're going to take democracy seriously. Senators don't just happen to come from a state - the are elected. Someone appointed by the Governor doesn't have the same kind of legitimacy.
This is the dimension of the Franken vs Moore comparison that gets lost - Franken is already elected (lament it if you will). While people are yet to decide if Roy Moore will be.
That said, I'm not saying "therefore Franken should stay in office". I don't really have much opinion on that.
