    A judge unsealed the divorce file for Democratic attorney general candidate Keith Ellison and his ex-wife Kim Ellison Wednesday morning. The couple divorced in 2012. The Star Tribune and Alpha News sued to have the files released after Ellison’s ex-girlfriend claimed he abused her. Ellison has denied the allegations. The media outlets argued the public has a right to know what is in the divorce records. In the documents, Kim does not accuse Keith of physical or emotional abuse.

    Kim Ellison said Tuesday that she has been the one pushing to keep records of her divorce with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison private, while the Minnesota Court of Appeals denied the Ellisons’ last-minute attempt to block the release of some information in the file. Their divorce file is expected to be unsealed Wednesday, following a District Court order issued last week by a Hennepin County Family Court referee. The Ellisons had petitioned the state Court of Appeals on Monday to delay that order and keep their divorce file sealed until they are given a chance to redact “confidential information” from...

    A court in Hennepin County has ruled the divorce records of U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison and his ex-wife will be unsealed. The referee in the matter issued his decision Friday. The documents will be unsealed next Wednesday, except for documents or portions of them that contain "restricted identifiers" or "financial source documents." Ellison's attorney Carla Kjellberg said Friday her client will appeal for a stay of the order. "Keith and Kim Ellison remain jointly opposed to this effort to exploit the details of their personal life, and the lives of their children, for political gain," she said in a statement....

    A Hennepin County family court referee said he wants to rule by Friday whether to unseal U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s divorce file in response to a legal effort by the Star Tribune and Alpha News. Referee Jason T. Hutchinson explained after an hourlong court hearing on Tuesday that if he did decide to unseal the file on Friday, it would still not be available for immediate public view. Instead, he would set a later date for opening it that would allow time for Ellison’s attorney to appeal the decision. The motions follow allegations by Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, that the...

    An attorney representing U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison has asked a judge to deny motions by the Star Tribune and Alpha News to unseal his 2012 divorce proceedings, instead suggesting that the judge privately review the file and unseal any records that refer to allegations of abuse. Last month, the Star Tribune joined a legal effort to unseal the divorce records, following a similar action by a right-leaning online news and opinion site. The efforts follow allegations by Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, that the Democratic candidate for attorney general tried to drag her off a bed during an argument in 2016....

The congressman told WCCO Radio on Wednesday that he’s considering stepping down from his DNC role to focus solely on the race for Minnesota attorney general. “I need to put 100 percent of my time, energy and resources into the race and my office, so it is something I am considering,” he told the radio station. Earlier this year, Ellison announced that he was leaving his 5th District seat to pursue the...

    The Minnesota DFL Party's attempt to find a law enforcement agency willing to investigate a domestic abuse claim against U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison was mired in uncertainty on Wednesday, after the Minneapolis Police Department said it would seek to refer the case to another jurisdiction. Earlier Wednesday, the DFL asked Minneapolis police to investigate the allegation after both a city attorney and a county prosecutor declined to review a report the party commissioned that did not substantiate the allegation. "Due to a conflict of interest, or the appearance of a conflict of interest, the Minneapolis Police Department will not be...

Charlene Briner, a senior adviser for the party, told the Star Tribune on Wednesday that the DFL sent its investigative report to the Minneapolis Police Department “and asked that they investigate the claims described in the report to determine whether any criminal conduct occurred.” The party asked the Lockridge Grindal Nauen law firm in August...

    Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom has agreed to review claims of abuse made by the ex-girlfriend of Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, but only if a law enforcement agency completes an investigation first, according to a letter from the county attorney's office. The letter, which was sent to the Minneapolis City Attorney's Office, came a day after a report compiled by an attorney hired by the DFL. That letter indicated Karen Monahan's allegations that Ellison once physically abused her could not be substantiated was made public. The DFL said Monday they would ask the City of Minneapolis Attorney's Office for review....

But he still left messages like this throughout the whole year of 2017.” ETC... Sceenshots at link.

    Where is Democrats' concern and support for Ellison's ex-girlfriend? The former girlfriend of Congressman Keith Ellison is accusing her fellow Democrats of isolating her and attempting to silence her for speaking out about the domestic violence she claims to have suffered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend. Democrats say they believe women when they come forward with claims of abuse inflicted on them by powerful men. But this claimed belief in women isn’t unconditional. When a woman accuses a powerful Democrat, all bets are off. The episode is another reminder that Democrats are champions of women’s rights – but only...

    Is Morning Joe losing its hate-all-things-Republican edge? Last week, we noted the show being surprisingly supportive of the Republican decision to move for a vote on Brett Kavanaugh. Today, Joe Scarborough took things a stunning step further, blasting partisan liberals in the media who have convicted Kavanaugh in advance. Said Scarborough: "What we've seen the last week has made me want to call networks and put a (D) in front of the name of the so-called journalists,/B> that have already decided that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist, or, what was the, 'serial sexual abuser.' Oh, really? You know that? Do...
