Harvard dumps Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik from political science advisory board

  • Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf today announced Rep. Elise Stefanik would be removed from a school political science advisory board Claiming she had made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election “that have no basis in evidence”.
  • “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,” Elmendorf said in a letter released Tuesday.
  • “In my conversation with Elise, she declined to step aside, and I told her that I would therefore remove her from the Institute of Politics’ Senior Advisory Committee at this time,” Elmendorf wrote.
  • A week ago, Stefanik, a Harvard graduate herself, noted she would be objecting to certification of the electoral college in Congress on Wednesday.
  • That same day, the Capitol was overtaken by rioters attempting to have the results of the election overturned and President Donald Trump declared the winner.
  • After the Capitol was cleared, Stefanik was one of 147 House Republicans that voted against certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
  • “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,” Stefanik said in a statement on Tuesday.
  • After her vote against election certification, a petition was circulated calling for Stefanik to be removed from the Harvard board, claiming Stefanik’s actions “undermined democracy and the Constitution” by “improperly challenging” the 2020 election results.
  • At the same time, Harvard Government professor Ryan D. Enos has urged the school to adopt “minimum standards” for affiliation with Harvard that “include supporting free elections and not encouraging violence.”
  • Bacow has also received a letter from Kennedy School student Diego A. Garcia Blum urging the school to adopt “accountability guidelines” for welcoming officials who served in the Trump administration.
  • The letter has been signed by over 300 individuals affiliated with Harvard.
