Why did Elise Stefanik get removed from one of Harvard University’s advisory committees?
Following the 2020 presidential elections, Dean Doug Elmendorf removed Stefanik from the advisory committees after refusing his request to resign.
“My request was not about political parties, political ideology, or her choice of candidate for president,” Dean Elmendorf said in a statement.
“Rather, in my assessment, Elise has made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence, and she has made public statements about court actions related to the election that is incorrect.”
“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 released a statement following Harvard’s decision that read, “The decision by Harvard’s administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode diversity of thought, public discourse, and ultimately the student experience.”
