The Institute of Politics at the Harvard Kennedy School, citing Rep. Elise Stefanik’s “incorrect” claims about voter fraud in the November election, has removed her from its Senior Advisory Committee.

The announcement about the New York Republican was made Tuesday on the school’s website.

Douglas Elmendorf, the school’s dean, said he had first asked her to resign, but she declined.

“My request was not about political parties, political ideology, or her choice of candidate for president,” he said. “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 are 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.

“In my conversation with Elise, she declined to step aside, and I told her that I would therefore remove her from the IOP’s Senior Advisory Committee at this time.”

In statement posted on her Twitter account, Stefanik said: “As a conservative Republican, it is a rite of passage and badge of honor to join the long line of leaders who have been boycotted, protested, and canceled by colleges and universities across America.”
