Olivia Troye, who was an aide to former Vice President Mike Pence before leaving in August, said it had been “disappointing” to see Stefanik potentially elevated into leadership for being a Trump acolyte who advances his voting fraud claims.
“She’s not getting it on the merits of being bipartisan, she’s not getting it on the merits of her policymaking, her governing,” said Troye, part of the Republican Accountability Project. “She’s getting it on the merits of lying. It’s not about telling the truth. She’s rising in power for her lies.”
