Skip to comments.CJ: Congressman Ellison files for legal separation from wife

Congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress, has filed for a legal separation from his wife, Kim Dore Ellison.
Ellison could not be reached for comment on the legal papers filed in Hennepin County on April 29. The staffer who answered the phone today at Ellison's D.C. office said, "He's actually on a plane right now. I can see what I can do."
According to the MPLS Mirror, the Ellisons have been married more than 20 years.
When asked how long the Ellisons have been married, the congressman's attorney, Carla Kjellberg, said, "I don't comment on private family business with my clients." Kjellberg did, however, correct me on the papers filed.
"I am not representing Keith Ellison in a divorce," said Kjellberg. When I corrected myself by describing the document as a legal separation, Kjellberg said, "That's what's filed."

"That's her job"....Keith explained.
Well, at least he didn't her stoned to death.
At least he wasn’t filing a blade to separate her head from her body....yet.
I thought under sharia law, all he had to do was say, “I divorce thee.” three times.
Has he beheaded her yet?
I do not know ‘mooselimb’. Does he stone her or have his family do unmentionables to her?
Probably won’t have an issue with who gets the dog.
What does the rest of the harem have to say about it?
Or....the liquor cabinet....
Yeah, but who get the gay porn?

First OPEN muslim. There is another who is closeted.
So if she moves on with her life and tries to date, does his religion allow him to stone her to death?
Can’t he just marry three others?
