After Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik throughly embarrassed and exposed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff at last week's public impeachment inquiry hearings, the Left has decided she must be destroyed.
On Monday, leftist organization MoveOn.org sent out fundraising emails proclaiming Stefanik "must be defeated." Here it is, in part:
Dear MoveOn member,
If you watched any of the first few days of the impeachment hearings against Donald Trump, you may have noticed a new "star" featured in the Republicans' reality TV-style scheme to interrupt the hearings: Representative Elise Stefanik of New York.
Rep. Stefanik has taken center stage in the hearings, using every opportunity to attempt to undermine the rules, enter false and pointless content into the official record, and malign Democrats and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff—she even used the entirety of one of her question periods to read out the titles of news articles smearing Chairman Schiff. Trump called her "a new Republican star" because of her performance.1
Rep. Stefanik has made it clear that instead of advocating for our democracy and her constituents in New York's 21st Congressional District, one of the most critical swing districts in the country, she will blindly support Trump's criminality and corruption. We need to hold her accountable, Friend.
The good news is that Rep. Stefanik's Democratic opponent, Tedra Cobb, is a dedicated public servant who is ready to serve the people of her district in northern New York and stand up to wannabe-tyrants like Trump. MoveOn members endorsed Cobb when she ran in 2018, and since the district now only leans Republican by four points, we CAN win this seat in 2020.
Here's where it gets even more exciting: In the first couple days after Rep. Stefanik's shameless display during the impeachment proceedings, Cobb's campaign raised more than $1 dollars from tens of thousands of grassroots donors. But let's not stop there.
Will you chip in $3 directly to Tedra Cobb and help her campaign raise $2 million by the end of the week?
With your help, we will send a clear message to Rep. Stefanik that her time in Washington is up—and show other Republicans that blind loyalty to Trump in spite of his crimes and corruption will carry political consequences next November.
Stefanik has vowed to continue her tough questioning in an effort to obtain valuable information for the American people. She's also doing some fundraising of her own.

In the meantime, she's being embraced and encouraged by the Republican Party's strongest leaders.
Liberals are pro women until we say or think something they don’t like then the name calling begins. @RepStefanik, keep up the great fight. We have your back. ??????— Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley) November 16, 2019
