Keith Ellison Hit With Chilling Domestic Abuse Claims

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) has been accused of domestic violence by the family of a former girlfriend, Karen Monahan. Monahan’s son, Austin, described the relationship as being “pure hell” for his mother. In a Facebook post written on behalf of him and his brother, Austin says he found video evidence on his mom’s computer last year of Ellison dragging her by her feet from a bed, calling her a “f***ing b**ch” and threatening her. Austin also found over 100 texts between the two with Ellison begging her to come back to him. . .

Ellison is currently running for Minnesota attorney general. These allegations surfaced just a few days before Tuesday’s primary. State Rep. Debra Hilstrom, who also is running for the Democratic nomination, shared the Facebook post and demanded her opponent respond to the charges. . .

“I still care deeply for her well-being,” Ellison wrote of Monahan. “This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false.”

Ellison has represented Minnesota in Congress for six terms and is currently serving as the deputy chair of the DNC.
