MORE ELLISON ABUSE CHARGES
Keith Ellison’s more recent girlfriend and accuser, Karen Monahan, says she has a video that confirms her allegations against him, but doesn’t intend to release it.
She told MPR News that she would not be posting the video for many reasons, including that it’s traumatizing, humiliating and sets an expectation that abuse survivors must prove their stories.
I doubt whether the video exists, but the multiple claims of sexual assault against Deputy Democratic National Committee Chairman Keith Ellison are not so easily dismissed. The Minnesota primary, in which Ellison is running for Attorney General, is tomorrow. We will soon see how seriously Democratic Party voters take allegations of sexual assault against a far-left candidate.
UPDATE: Cillian Zeal has more on Ellison’s abusive history as it relates to Amy Alexander:
“I regret that like many, I too was duped by Keith Ellison’s considerable charm,” Minnesota Democrat activist Amy L. Alexander wrote in the Wright County Republican back in October of 2006. “I was seduced by the idea of what I thought he represented.”
By 2004, Alexander had returned to Minnesota and the relationship reignited, leading to an alleged incident of abuse when things fell apart in 2005.
“In May, Keith wanted to try and quiet me so he came to my home uninvited,” Alexander wrote. “We had words. His anger kicked in. He berated me. He grabbed me and pushed me out of the way. I was terrified. I called the police. As he fled he broke my screen door. I have never been so scared.”
And then, when Ellison ran for Congress, he tried to intimidate her into staying quiet, even with the restraining order.
