Stefanik Inducted into Civil Air Patrol Congressional Squadron
U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik was inducted into the Civil Air Patrol Congressional Squadron at the rank of “honorary Lieutenant Colonel” on Friday.
“She is a full-fledged member (of the Civil Air Patrol). She has all rights and privileges of a regular member. She can participate in any Civil Air Patrol event,” said 1st Lt Franklin Birt, a spokesman for New York Wing Civil Air Patrol, based at Westchester County Airport in White Plains, in a telephone interview on Monday.
The Congressional Squadron has seven members from New York, including Elise Stefanik and Rep. John Katko, R-Cammilus, who also was inducted on Friday.
Other members Include:
Rep. Daniel Donovan, R-Long Island; Rep. Tom Reed, R-Corning; Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-Clinton; Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-Long Island; former Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Utica.
Not sure if you are waiting to see how many Trump supporters are willing to attempt to murder Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-NY) the way they tried on Pence-Pelosi, but Civil Air Patrol Lt Colonel Elise Stefanik has been DISGRACED and removed from the Harvard Institute of Politics Senior Advisory Committee this Tuesday for her role in supporting the treasonous Donald Trump’s baseless claims about voter fraud in the November 2020 election.
Even after Trump called for his supporters to march to the Capitol to take back the nation and they went and “busted up the place,” Stefanik still went on record objecting to certification of the election results.
Douglas Elmendorf, dean of faculty at the Harvard Kennedy School, said the following in a letter written today to the Senior Advisory Committee of the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School:
“I spoke with Elise and asked her to step aside from the Senior Advisory Committee. My request was not about political parties, political ideology, or her choice of candidate for president. 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.”
The capitalization in the above is mine.
Elmendorf said that Harvard initially asked Stefanik to step aside, but she refused and the school removed her.
Donald Trump is rumored to be privately disgusted with a “weak and feckless” Stefanik for failing to recognize some unspecified opportunity for dealing with Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi.
I also want to say that my Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, has accused Elise Stefanik of lying and fueling the beliefs that led to the coup attempt in Washington, D.C.
“She lacks discipline and understanding of the harm President Trump has caused this country,” Gillibrand said. “She is complicit.”
You haven’t published many stories lately, but if you release this comment or as a story, I will relay more to you about the criminals I have found in the Civil Air Patrol organization.
