Republican group puts up billboards telling Stefanik to resign

WASHINGTON — The Republican Accountability Project, an anti-Trump team, is shelling out for two billboards in the district of U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, telling her to resign.

The billboards likely up Monday in Queensbury and Fort Ann will say “You lied about the election. The Capitol was attacked. Stefanik: resign.”

The billboards will remain up until finally the conclusion of February, said Meaghan Leister, chief of National Communications and Outreach for Defending Democracy Jointly, which runs the Republican Accountability Project.

The billboards are the to start with phase of a $1 million campaign targeting nine other Property Republicans and U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Josh Hawley, R-Mo. All of the lawmakers voted to item to certifying the 2020 presidential election final results on Jan. 6, several hours immediately after a mob of pro-Trump supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol to try to end the certification and keep President Donald Trump in the White House.

The campaign is portion of a much larger hard work by Defending Democracy Jointly, which opposed Trump’s re-election, to support Republicans who voted to impeach Trump and again primary challengers of Republicans, like Stefanik, who objected to President Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

“Rep. Stefanik served incite the assault on the Capitol by spreading lies about the election which proves she is unfit to maintain office environment and need to be nowhere around electrical power,” Leister reported.

Stefanik claimed she objected to certifying the election effects since she believes elections in Ga, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan were being improperly done. She reported tens of thousands and thousands of Us residents experienced issues about unconstitutional overreach by officials functioning the elections and judges and individuals issues should be reviewed.

Her marketing campaign did not respond to a request for comment Friday evening.

The other House Republicans focused by the campaign are U.S. Reps. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, Madison Cawthorne, R-N.C., Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Mo Brooks, R-Ala. and Dan Bishop, R-N.C.

Trump’s marketing campaign and his supporters filed dozens of lawsuits complicated Biden’s victory, but judges have not uncovered that election legal guidelines were broken in the course of the 2020 election or that fraud occurred. Biden won the well-known vote and the Electoral Faculty vote. The House and Senate voted overwhelmingly to certify the election success on Jan. 7.

Since her vote, Stefanik has missing the aid of some important corporate donors and was taken out from the advisory committee of Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.
