Richard Burr's latest transgression has me thinking about the two ways to remove a senator: (1) resignation, and (2) expulsion by the Senate. Either or neither could happen.
Is it a good thing to try to oust Burr now? From a political perspective, I'm not sure. The replacement process would be wicked, with the deck stacked in favor of Republicans.
From a moral perspective? Absolutely.
This is about America, not just North Carolina. As a country and as a state, we cannot tolerate this kind of craven behavior.
Burr should step down or be expelled, no matter what it means politically.
