Asked About Ellison’s Accuser, Minnesota Dem Says ‘I’m Going to Take a Picture of This Duck’

Democrat Joe Radinovich didn’t have much to say when a political tracker asked the congressional candidate if he believes the woman who has accused Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) of abuse.

Radinovich is running for Congress in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District, to replace the retiring Rep. Rick Nolan (D-MN).

Ellison, a congressman from Minnesota and the Democratic National Committee’s vice chair, is running for attorney general in the state. His ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, has credibly accused Ellison of physical and mental abuse. Ellison denies the allegations.

The Democratic Party in Minnesota, known as the Democratic-Farm-Labor (DFL) Party, launched its own investigation into the accusations against Ellison and found the claim to be unsubstantiated. Monahan provided a doctor’s report from 2017 that names Ellison as the abuser.

Radinovich did not seem at all interested in answering questions about his fellow Minnesota Democrat’s issues.

“Do you think the DFL investigation into Ellison was sufficient?” the tracker asks. Radinovich’s response is about as close to nonsense as any candidate can get.

“Can you wait right there? I’m going to take a picture of this duck,” Radinovich, 32, responds before whipping out his camera. “I’m a duck hunter. I can’t see any mallards right now on the duck blinds. Nice to see you.”

Asked a second time at another event, Radinovich simply ignored the questions.

Radinovich is facing Republican Pete Stauber in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District. The Cook Political Report rates the race a “Toss Up,” but if Radinovich keeps refusing to answer important questions, he may have a lot more time to go duck hunting this year.

Water fowl hunting season began September 22 in Minnesota.
