Harvard’s Institute of Politics has removed @RepStefanik from its Senior Advisory Committee.

In a letter to other members of the committee, Dean of the Faculty of the Kennedy School Doug Elmendorf writes...
2/ “My request was not about political parties, political ideology, or her choice of candidate for president. Rather, in my assessment, Elise has made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence,...
3/“... and she has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect. Moreover, these assertions and statements do not reflect policy disagreements but bear on the foundations of the electoral process..
4/“... through which this country’s leaders are chosen.

“I made this request to Elise mindful of her important contributions to the crucial mission of the Institute of Politics over a long period, beginning with her role as a student leader (she was in the class of 2006)...
5/“... and continuing to her mentoring students and strengthening the IOP’s programming in many ways. I know that we are grateful for her long and committed service.
“In my conversation with Elise, she declined to step aside, and I told her that I would therefore remove her...
6/“... from the IOP’s Senior Advisory Committee at this time.”
7/ Full letter here:

Removing an alum (@RepStefanik was Harvard class of 2006) not to mention a sitting congresswoman is no small thing for any university.
Here’s the response from @EliseStefanik in which she describes opposition to her spreading election lies — not to mention her votes to disenfranchise millions of Americans based on those lies, *after* the MAGA terrorist attack led to bloodshed — as being “woke.”

Hice was re-elected on the same day on the same GA ballot using the same methods and standards. It would really prove his intellectual consistency on this issue if he were to resign and demand a new election.
