    Elected Senators have a constitutional obligation to represent their constituencies. Excluding a sitting Senator from voting for an issue as critical to our democracy as impeachment effectively silences the voting voices of an entire state. This is clearly an partisan resolution introduced to influence impeachment and should be dismissed.
