    There is some shady background on Keith Ellison the man running for AG of MN on the Democratic ticket. He seems to have put himself like a deer in the headlights of the #metoo movement since being accused of abusing his ex girlfriend Ms. Monahan. Monahan is a mixed race woman who dated him after his divorce. Keith Ellison has what seems to be a dual personality: public humanitarian with a churning up anger problem. He has been disliked by the right for a long time, but his history shows a pile up of offending other groups as well.

    It’s unfortunate women who have dealt with abuse, are often not believed or ignored, until they work with there who have social status, such as stars, national advocates, etc. #MeToo[​IMG]

    Keith Ellison Gets His #MeToo Moment Keith Ellison Gets His #MeToo Moment

    EXCLUSIVE: 911 Record Documents Woman's Claim of Keith Ellison's Domestic Assault
    The caller's name on the report has been redacted, but according to a records search under the name of "Amy Alexander", Alexander lived at 1403 Washington St NE, Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is the address on the reports, which documents the reported assault as taking place on May 16, 2005 at 21:17:25, which would be 9:17:25 pm.
    Underneath the location noted on the report, the report says,
    "CLR RPTG SHE WAS ASLT'D BY ELLISON/KEITH/BLACK MALE/41/WEARING SUIT LS LEAVING APT...UNK DIR...NO EMS NEEDED...CLR WANTS TO SEE SQD."
    Keith Ellison is currently 55 years old. The age of the Keith Ellison noted in the police report from 2005 says the accused was a 41-year-old black male, another fact that supports Alexander's claim.


    In 2006 Ellison ran (as a Democrat) for Minnesota's Fifth District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Early that year, the Minnesota State Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board reprimanded Ellison's campaign for unreported contributions, misclassified disbursements, and inaccurate cash balances. Ellison himself was fined for willful violation of Minnesota's campaign-finance-reporting law and was sued twice by the state attorney general.

    Jewish Groups and Unions Grow Uneasy With Keith Ellison Jewish Groups and Unions Grow Uneasy With Keith Ellison

    Ellison was the first Muslim congressman ever elected in the United States. His journey to Islam began with Louis Farrakhan’s anti-white, anti-Semitic cult the Nation of Islam, the central beliefs of which include that white people were “grafted” into existence as a result of the evil experiments of a black mad scientist named “Yakub.” Ellison was closely associated with the Nation of Islam and other strains of black nationalism well into the 1990s. As Farrakhan, whom Ellison denounced when he ran for Congress in 2006, revealed publicly earlier this year, Ellison sold the Nation’s notoriously anti-Semitic newspaper, The Final Call, on the streets of Minneapolis, at least as late as 1995.

    He is a black democrat, that means you are a racist for thinking he is capable of such a thing.

    Ms. Monahan is a force against Ellison and I hope she picks up momentum. This Ellison is all wrong for this position.

    Ellison Denies Abuse Allegations Ahead of Minnesota Primary


    Ellison Denies Abuse Allegations Ahead of Minnesota Primary
    Front-runner in Democratic race for state attorney general faces accusations from ex-girlfriend

    Natalie Andrews Aug. 13, 2018 3:43 p.m. ET


    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison denied allegations that he abused a former girlfriend, claims that emerged just ahead of his Democratic primary race for state attorney general.

    Mr. Ellison is seen as the front-runner in the five-way primary to fill the attorney general’s seat. The six-term congressman also serves as the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee.

    Allegations of domestic abuse were posted Saturday night on Facebook by Austin Aslim Monahan, who said he had found text and private Twitter messages between his mother, Karen Monahan, and the congressman that were abusive in nature. He said he had seen a video that showed Mr. Ellison “dragging my mama off the bed by her feet.”

    Ms. Monahan told local news outlets said she was the victim of mistreatment by Mr. Ellison, including being dragged off the bed.
    In a press release, Mr. Ellison said the video didn’t exist and the incident never occurred.

    “Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being,” he said on Sunday. “This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false.”

    Democratic candidates running in the race against Mr. Ellison called on the lawmaker to address the allegations, but it was unclear how much the allegations will affect the race. A spokesman for the Minnesota Secretary of State said more than 117,000 early ballots have been cast already in the election. In the 2016 primary, 294,797 registered voters cast ballots, according to the Minnesota Secretary of State office.

    While several of the text messages were reviewed by local media, the alleged video hasn’t surfaced. It wasn’t posted on Facebook by Ms. Monahan or her son. Mr. Monahan and Ms. Monahan didn’t return requests for comment.

    Mr. Ellison was the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress and the first black congressman from Minnesota. He is a progressive voice in the House and was the second House lawmaker to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president in 2016.

    The DNC declined to comment about the allegations against Mr. Ellison. Top Minnesota Democrats have held off on commenting on the allegations.
