Karen Monahan, the ex-girlfriend of Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), told CBS News that Ellison “didn’t apologize for putting his hands on her,” during an exclusive interview on Thursday night in which she detailed domestic abuse allegations against the candidate for attorney general in Minnesota.

Monahan accused Ellison of emotionally and physically abusing her during their relationship, allegations that Ellison has denied.

CBS News’ Jericka Duncan reported:

“Monahan said that in September of 2016, she and her then boyfriend, Ellison, got into a heated argument that scared her. She said it started when he came into a room where she was laying on a bed, listening to a podcast. He asked her to take out the trash and when he asked if she heard him, she shook her head:

“I was still in bed, and I was laying across the bed on my stomach,” Monahan told Duncan. “[Ellison] walked in he said, ‘I need you to take the trash out.'”

Monahan then explained that she looked at Ellison and shook her head, which seems to have set off Ellison.

“Hey, you f****** hear me?” Ellison allegedly said to Monahan.

“Then he looked at me and said, ‘B**** get the f*** out of my house,’ and he started trying to drag me off the bed,” Monahan said.

Monahan told Duncan that she did tell a friend about the incident but never reported it to the police.

Ellison denied these allegations on Wednesday during an exclusive interview with CBS-Minnesota.

Duncan asked Monahan what she had to say to people who say, “it only happened one time and he did apologize right after.”

“He didn’t apologize for putting his hands on me. One [time] is enough,” Monahan said.
