DNC Vice Chair Denies Accusations of Domestic Abuse by Ex-Girlfriend

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair and candidate for Minnesota attorney general, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), is facing domestic abuse allegations from an ex-girlfriend just days before Minnesota’s primary election.

CBS Minnesota reported:

“The accusations came in a Facebook post published on Saturday night by Austin Monahan, the son of Ellison’s former girlfriend, Karen.”

“In it, he writes, in part, “In the middle of 2017, I was using my moms computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file. I found over 100 text and twitter messages and video almost 2 minutes long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a f — b — and telling her to get the f — out of his house.”

Austin Monahan’s mother, Karen Monahan, confirmed her son’s claims of abuse on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

Monahan’s Facebook post did not include the video that he spoke of, which allegedly showed Ellison verbally and physically abusing Karen Monahan.

Ellison denied the allegations against him, and according to MPR News, “there are no police reports or court documents confirming the incident.”
