  • DNC Deputy Chair Ellison expected to run for Minnesota AG

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is expected to make a last-minute entry into the race for Minnesota attorney general on Tuesday, according to two people familiar with his plans. “I will make a decision tomorrow because it’s the filling deadline,” Ellison said, not disputing that he is likely to enter the election. Ellison has been in Congress since 2007, and served as deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee since last year, as a leader of the Bernie Sanders wing of the party. But he’s been chafing for months at both roles: being in the minority in Congress and being subsumed...
  • Ellison, 1st Muslim in Congress, running for Minnesota AG

    06/05/2018 4:02:07 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 24 replies
    ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has filed papers to run for Minnesota attorney general. Ellison, also the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, filed Tuesday just hours ahead of a deadline. Ellison will keep his post with the national party. Ellison is in his sixth term representing a reliably Democratic Minneapolis-area seat. But he was lured into Minnesota's attorney general race after the incumbent, Lori Swanson, jumped into the governor's race on Monday. Ellison says it was attorneys general who led the fight against President Donald Trump's ban on travelers...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling for the resignation of seven Democratic members of Congress whom it claims are "connected" to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The group describes him as a "known anti-Semite." Farrakhan has routinely spoke disparagingly about Jews over the years, as well as white people, in general. He was thrust into the mainstream spotlight again this week after excerpts from a speech he gave last week on the Nation of Islam's Saviour's Day surfaced online. During the speech, he once again described Jewish people -- who he says "are my enemy" -- in a...

    A video posted online Monday shows a Democratic Party leader wearing a T-shirt calling for an end to U.S. borders while participating in a local May Day parade in Minnesota last Friday. Democratic National Committee deputy chair Keith Ellison, D-Minn., wore a black shirt that read, "Yo no creo en fronteras." In English, that sentence translates to, "I don't believe in borders." Ellison, a progressive Democrat, said in March he supports a new type of welfare proposal that would have the government pay people a basic salary if technological advancements put them out of work. "I personally do think that...

    Photo of Democratic senator groping news anchor Leeann Tweeden goes viral Progressives aligned with the Bernie Sanders camp called for replacing disgraced Sen. Al Franken with a fellow Minnesota Democrat, Rep. Keith Ellison, as support grew Friday for the senator’s resignation. Justice Democrats, a group of former Sanders campaign staffers and others prominent leftists, launched a petition Thursday asking Mr. Franken to resign following the release of a photo showing him groping Leeann Tweeden as she slept on a 2006 USO tour. “Franken must go. We do not tolerate those who abuse their power,” said Justice Democrats PAC executive director...

    Los Angeles Times political columnist David Horsey body-shamed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in his latest anti-Trump hit piece, describing her as a “chunky soccer mom.” Horsey originally wrote Wednesday that Sanders “does not look like the kind of woman” that President Donald Trump would chose for the high-profile role, assuming he would prefer “sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels” who could pass for “arm candy” in addition to serving as the White House’s top spokesperson.

    Cam Newton is under fire for making a sexist comment to a female reporter during a press conference on Wednesday. Carolina Panthers beat writer Jourdan Rodrigue asked the quarterback about wide receiver Devin Funchess’ improvements on the field. “I know you take a lot of pride in seeing your receivers play well,” Rodrigue said during the briefing. “Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards. Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck-sticking people out there?” Newton laughed and replied, “It’s funny to hear...

    A divorce coach who charges $2,500 a session to advise women how to leave their husbands has insisted she is not a “marriage wrecker.” Single Emma Heptonstall ditched her high-flying job as a lawyer and set herself up as a self-proclaimed “divorce alchemist” — teaching mainly women, but occasionally men, how to have “happy splits.” The 44-year-old said: “I’m the divorce alchemist for ladies who leave. I know some people think I am not in a position to advise, having never been married, but I think that makes me objective.” “I’m not going to compare my situation with other people’s...

The feminist vegan owner of Handsome Her eatery in Melbourne, Australia, is making them pay an 18 per cent “man tax” as well as giving women priority over seating. Owner Alex O’Brien told Broadsheet website: “I do want people to think about it, because we’ve had this (pay discrepancy) for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds. “I like...

    Another powerful tech investor is apologizing for his inappropriate behavior toward women in the industry. "I made advances toward multiple women in work-related situations, where it was clearly inappropriate," Dave McClure, the cofounder of accelerator and investment firm 500 Startups, wrote in a post he titled "I'm a creep. I'm sorry." A day earlier, "Shark Tank" star and venture capitalist Chris Sacca, an early investor in Twitter and Uber, admitted that he has contributed to tech's sexist culture. The admissions come on the heels of a disturbing story about Binary Capital investor Justin Caldbeck. Six female founders, three of whom...

    As in the usual unison, the media is going off on how Donald Trump has taken the presidency to an all-time new low. Trump has achieved all-time misogynist status, even though it's Democrats, Republicans and their media has reached the sexist assumption that a face-lift procedure is exclusive to women. Again the media is relying on the fading memory of some, the convenient dropping of the subject of others, and the fact many viewers are too young to know that there was another president who did far worse damage to the dignity of the office than Donald Trump ever has....

    As if Twitter needed another reason to swoon over the former Vice President of the United States, this time Biden is back on everyone’s twitter feed because of a kiss. On Wednesday, Morgan State University graduate Brieana Carter posted the six second selfie video she took with Biden at her graduation on May 20th. In the video, Biden smiles for the camera but then turns to give Carter a tender peck on the cheek. Totally caught off guard, Carter lets out an emphatic scream as the former VP walks away.

    Another day, another team photo of the GOP celebrating together in a white-male photo shoot, as they prepare to strip away rights of women and protections for the most vulnerable. And another blunt reminder of why 1. political representation matters, and 2. few women in the room means the concerns of women get left out. This time around, the man party was in celebration of House Republicans pushing through a health care bill they threw together in an effort to save face, without bothering to allow the Congressional Budget Office to fully evaluate its costs and impact and lay them...

But according to Independent Journal Review’s Benny Johnson, who was in attendance, one Democratic lawmaker took it too far when he made a derogatory remark about White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway and the “controversy” surrounding the picture of her on the Oval Office couch crouching on her knees.
