Elise Stefanik was so happy the day she found out she got into her dream school, Harvard University, that she cried. Having Harvard on her CV was her ticket into politics, and she rose enough through the ranks to win a seat in the House of Representatives, an opportunity she quickly squandered as her blind allegiance to Donald Trump has overshadowed her tenure in the House, and her voting record of choosing Trump over America speaks for itself.
However, once Stefanik chose to vote to overturn the results of a legitimate presidential election during the late-night hours after the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol Building, the Harvard University Institute of Politics called for her to voluntarily step down from its Senior Advisory Committee. Stefanik, ever defiant in emulation of her Dear Leader, refused.
The Harvard Institute of Politics had faced criticism for inviting former members of Trump’s administration to serve as fellows. The school developed a new vetting process in 2018 after facing national backlash for inviting fellows including former press secretary Sean Spicer, according to the Harvard Crimson. Now Harvard has implemented that new process by calling Stefanik’s bluff and removing her from the board.

“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 are incorrect,” Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf wrote in a letter released Tuesday. “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.”
The seditious Stefanik responded by calling her dismissal “a rite of passage and badge of honor” in a statement full of Trumpian projection language that she released on both of her Twitter accounts. “The decision by Harvard’s administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode diversity of thought,” Stefanik’s statement reads. “The Ivory Tower’s march toward a monoculture of like-minded, intolerant liberal views demonstrates the sneering disdain for everyday Americans and will instill a culture of fear for students.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has already said she’s prepared to invoke Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which allows for the removal of any members who openly commit sedition or treasonous acts while holding office. Harvard’s full statement regarding Stefanik can be read here.
