48. He'll always be sullied with this
So if he is concerned with his reputation, then yes, he should have turned it down. But then maybe power is more important than reputation.

I know the govenor had the right to do what he did, which is why Congress has to suck it up and take it. And for that matter, I'm not even sure it's illegal to sell a senate seat to the highest bidder. It's definitely poor taste, but is it actually illegal? I think that is arguable.
