They can't refuse to seat him but they can expel him

And they only need to get 18 Republicans on board to do so.

They've got a few already, I think, and public pressure may get more. And one guy who is no friend of Moore is the Senate Majority Leader.

If he gets elected, then expelled, the Republican governor of Alabama will appoint a Republican to replace him.

I think they will expel him. Because not doing so will absolutely kill them in the 2018 election as the Democrats hang it around their necks. And Franken's resignation cleared the way for them to do just that.

I heard Lindsey Graham say on Face the Nation on Sunday that Moore was a "child molester" and if he takes his seat in the Senate "there's going to be a problem".
