BOSTON – Harvard Institute of Politics removed rep. Elise Stefanik (RN.Y.) from her senior advisory committee in the wake of last week’s deadly uprising in the U.S. capital, pointing to her unfounded allegations of voter fraud in the November election.
“Elise has made public allegations of voter fraud in the November presidential election that have no evidence, and she has made public statements about trials in connection with the election that are incorrect,”
The school originally asked Stefanik to step aside, according to Elmendorf. When the New York legislature rejected, the school removed her. Stefanik was among the 147 House Republicans who voted against certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.
