Harvard Institute Of Politics Removes MAGA Nut Elise Stefanik From Advisory Role

The Kennedy School removed Stefanik from her Senior Advisory role at their Institute of Politics.

Imagine your school of government has on its policy board a former graduate who doesn't apparently believe in responsible government or basic democratic principles of representation. That's where Harvard University's Kennedy School found itself this week with Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY). So they turfed her.

Stefanik, a craven political opportunist in the Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley mold, jumped onboard the Trump train after the 2016 election.

And not a big surprise here either, as thousands of law school alumni from Yale and Harvard have also petitioned for senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley to be disbarred, such is the disgust with their recent behavior.

WASHINGTON — Harvard University's Kennedy School removed U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik from its senior advisory committee Tuesday after the school's dean determined the Schuylerville Republican made public assertions about voter fraud and the 2020 presidential election that have "no basis in evidence."

The decision came after Stefanik last week objected to certifying the presidential election results on the heels of a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol by some supporters of President Donald J. Trump.

Over 750 Harvard students and alumni petitioned for her ouster on the heels of that decision.

Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf said in a letter Tuesday that he spoke with Stefanik and asked her to step aside. After she declined, Harvard removed from her from the now 12-member senior advisory committee for its Institute of Politics.

Stefanik, who graduated from the Institute of Politics in 2006, released a statement lambasting the university for creating a "monoculture of like-minded, intolerant liberal views " after Harvard announced its decision.

And the little shits congresswoman's response, blaming the "woke Left."
