Harvard Institute of Politics Removes Rep. Elise Stefanik From Advisory Board for Questioning 2020 Election
“She has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect”
Democrats, the media, and others spent the last four years insisting Russia stole the 2016 election. Those same people are punishing anyone who questions 2020.

Harvard removes GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik from advisory committee over election comments
Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik’s getting the boot from the Harvard Institute of Politics.
The school announced Tuesday that the four-term congresswoman from upstate New York and strong supporter of President Trump was removed from its Senior Advisory Committee in the wake of last week’s attack on the U.S. Capitol due to her “public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence.”
“She has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect,” Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf added in a letter. “Moreover, these assertions and statements do not reflect policy disagreements but bear on the foundations of the electoral process through which this country’s leaders are chosen.”
Stefanik joined nearly 150 fellow House Republicans in supporting Trump’s unsuccessful push to reverse his presidential election defeat at the hands of President-elect Joe Biden. Their votes came after the storming of the Capitol hours earlier on Wednesday by supporters of the president who were encouraged by Trump to march to the Capitol and show strength as they protested congressional certification of the election.
Elmendorf said in his letter that the school originally asked Stefanik to resign from the committee, and when she declined, “I told her that I would therefore remove her from the IOP’s Senior Advisory Committee at this time.”
