    DFL candidate Keith Ellison continued to deny allegations of domestic abuse Friday night, at times fending off questions from both moderators and opponent Doug Wardlow during the first post-primary debate for Minnesota attorney general hosted by TPT’s “Almanac” public affairs show. Ellison, a six-term member of the U.S. House from Minneapolis, has been accused by former girlfriend Karen Monahan of domestic abuse. She has said he dragged her off a bed by her feet during a fight before they separated in 2016 and alleges years of emotional abuse. During the “Almanac” debate, Ellison said “it simply isn’t true.” **SNIP** Will...
  • Conservatives claim media, Dems ignoring allegations against Ellison (BRAKING NEWS?)

    **SNIP** Led by opinion hosts on Fox News, conservative figures looking to call out liberal hypocrisy have seized on accusations by Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan that he emotionally abused her and, during a 2016 argument, yelled profanities at her and dragged her off a bed. They claim that the national press, while giving ‘round the clock coverage to an allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman when they were both in high school, has ignored Monahan’s more recent claims about Ellison — and so, they argue, has the Democratic Party. “Guess what? Prominent Democrats line up in support, believe...

    U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison pushed back Friday against allegations of domestic abuse, saying his accuser fabricated the story about him. The Minnesota Democrat also dismissed a medical record that named him as the abuser, but said he can’t be sure more people won’t “cook up” allegations against him.
  • Democrats accused of trying to bury Ellison abuse allegations with sluggish probe

    Democrats taking to the airwaves to denounce Judge Brett Kavanaugh have been considerably less focused on their own abuse investigation into Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison. The Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party said a month ago it would investigate after a former girlfriend accused Mr. Ellison of emotional and physical abuse, but since then the party has said nothing as the probe fades largely from view. That’s undoubtedly by design, said Larry Jacobs, professor at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, who characterized the investigation as an exercise in damage control aimed at providing the party with political...

    While Democrats try their best to derail Judge Kavanaugh through an allegation of something that "may" have happened 30+ years ago, but details can't be recalled, and while Democrats are silent about Democrat Party Co-Chair Keith Ellison's assault on women, there remains $17,000,000 spent to cover up sexual assault allegations against those in Congress. All that money spent and we don't know who our tax dollars protected. You can't make this stuff up!

    As the media frenzy over unsubstantiated accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reach a fever pitch, it’s truly instructive to observe the virtual news blackout over the case of Karen Monahan. Ms. Monahan has accused Rep. Keith Ellison, the vice chair of the Democratic National Committee and the party’s nominee for Minnesota attorney general, of physical abuse during the course of their relationship. Unlike Judge Cavanaugh’s accuser, Ms. Monahan is willing to go on the record to discuss the details of Mr. Ellison’s behavior. Also unlike Judge Cavanaugh’s accuser, Ms. Monahan has produced evidence to support the claims of...

    The Democratic and legacy media mantra that every alleged victim must be deemed credible and heard seems to have one big exception to that rule. It does not apply if you are a Democrat as evidenced by the reaction of the Democratic National Committee to the credible charges of abuse leveled against Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy DNC chair and candidate for Minnesota attorney general: The woman who accused Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse said on Monday that Democrats don’t believe her story and threatened to isolate her over the allegations. Karen Monahan, a former girlfriend, came forward...

    U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan has posted a medical document on social media that shows she told a doctor in 2017 that she had been in an abusive relationship with Ellison. Monahan, who said Ellison domestically abused her in 2016, shared the patient progress notes from Nov. 2017 on Twitter several times this week. Ellison, who is running for Minnesota attorney general, has denied the allegation, which emerged in August. Monahan’s son first told the story on social media, and she later confirmed what her son said. During a fight, Ellison pulled on her legs and feet...

    The woman who accused Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse said on Monday that Democrats don’t believe her story and threatened to isolate her over the allegations. Karen Monahan, a former girlfriend, came forward last month alleging that Ellison sent her threatening text messages and once screamed obscenities at her as he dragged her off a bed by her feet. Ellison has denied the accusations, saying he “never behaved this way.” He did acknowledge he was in a relationship with the woman. The allegations didn’t lead to any immediate action against the congressman, except for the announcement that...

    Keith Ellison is well-versed in campaigning with political baggage. The Minneapolis lawyer and politician climbed the Democratic political ranks, from the Minnesota Legislature to Congress and Democratic National Committee deputy chairman, while contending with controversies — from decades-old ties to the Nation of Islam to one-time public support for a federal fugitive. Now, as he mounts a bid for Minnesota attorney general, he is trying to move past an allegation of domestic abuse from a former girlfriend. After a dip in public appearances, Ellison has resumed a busy campaign schedule. On Thursday, he held a St. Paul news conference to...

    As he arrived for a campaign event in Minnesota on Saturday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) was confronted by investigative journalist Laura Loomer about the numerous domestic violence allegations that have been brought against him by two different women. Loomer questioned Ellison about a 2005 police report filed by Amy Alexander, a Democrat activist who he had a relationship with. With the police report in hand, Loomer asked Ellison to explain why the police report says there was a domestic violence call to Alexander's house, despite the fact that Ellison has denied the allegations.

    Keith Ellison's political career began with controversy over his links to the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, connections that continues to dog him to the present day despite his repeated disavowals. But less commonly known is another radical association of Ellison's: a decade-long relationship with Marxist University of Minnesota professor and 1974 Communist Party gubernatorial candidate in Minnesota, Erwin Marquit. Marquit helped launch Ellison's national political career in 2006 using Marquit's political connections, anti-war associations, personal donations, and hosting at least four fundraisers over the years for Ellison in the Marquit home near Cedar Lake in the Bryn Mawr section...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — DFL leaders called a press conference Thursday to show harmony after a bruising primary election. But if this is Democratic unity, one wonders what DFL dissension looks like. At the news conference, DFL Party Chair Ken Martin was peppered with questions about embattled Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison. “What I would say is that our party takes any allegation of domestic abuse seriously,” he said. “It’s a fluid situation. It’s still developing.”

"We take these allegations seriously, we are certainly eager to hear all the answers to the questions that have been raised,” said Martin. “We continue to watch the story develop, we don't know how it's going to develop and the conclusion at this point."

    The former girlfriend of Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison sat down with CBS News on Thursday to talk about the abuse she says she endured during their relationship. Just days before the primary, Karen Monahan’s son posted on Facebook that he had seen a video of Ellison dragging his mother off a bed by her feet in Ellison’s home. Monahan spoke with CBS’s Jericka Duncan about why she decided to share her story. “At this point in time, I’m grounded and I know who I am. I have healed for a year and a half. I looked straight at him and...

    Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison isn’t having the best week, but it’s nothing compared to what women around him have been through. The Minnesota lawmaker and Deputy Chair of the Democrat National Convention was accused by Karen Monahan of being physically abusive during their relationship. Karen’s son, Austin Monahan, backs up her claim. Now a second woman has courageously stepped forward, and she’s got the 911 report that gives her horrifying story some serious weight. Laura Loomer published the official report to her website.

    The Democratic National Committee said it is reviewing allegations against its deputy chair, Rep. Keith Ellison, three days after he was accused of physically and verbally abusing his ex-girlfriend. “These allegations recently came to light and we are reviewing them,” the DNC told NPR in a statement Tuesday evening. “All allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing and should be taken seriously.” **SNIP** Just hours after the DNC said it was reviewing the allegations, Mr. Ellison went on to win the Democratic primary for Minnesota attorney general, easily besting four other challengers Tuesday evening.

    Ilhan Omar, who once called Israel an “apartheid regime,” but who more recently came out against the boycott Israel movement, handily won the Democratic nomination in a Minneapolis-area congressional District. Omar, a Somali-born community activist and representative in the State House, is favored to win in November in the 5th District now held by Keith Ellison, who won the DFL primary for state attorney general. DFL is the state’s Democratic Party. There were primaries Tuesday in four states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Vermont. Omar’s tweets about Israel have earned her notoriety in the pro-Israel community. In 2012, she said...
  • Vanity - How will alleged multi woman abuser, Democrat, Keith Ellison be treated?

    It will be most interesting to see how the Media and the Democrat Party treat the Vice Chairman of the DNC, now that Keith Ellison is an alleged sex abuser of multi women. It will also be most interesting to see how Ellison is treated if he wins his primary election this evening for Minnesota Attorney General, by his own Democrat Party and the Media. After all, he and Judge Roy Moore are cut from the same cloth...both alleged, sex abusers. It will be fun to watch....stay tuned...folks!!!
