DNC Co-Chair ELLISON Accused of Physical & Emotional ABUSE
Rep. Keith Ellison has been accused of emotional and physical abuse by a former girlfriend.
The co-chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Keith Ellison, was accused of emotional and physical abuse by an ex-girlfriend who said: "You know you did that to me."
Ellison responded to the allegations Sunday, issuing a brief statement that said, "I never behaved in this way."
The allegations surfaced Saturday night from Karen Monahan after her son alleged in a Facebook post that he had seen text messages from Ellison threatening her and video of the congressman screaming obscenities at her as he dragged her off a bed by her feet, The Associated Press reported.
What my son said is true. Every statement he made was true.@keithellison, you know you did that to me. I have given every opportunity to get help and heal. Even now, u r willing to say my son is lying and have me continue to leak more text and info just so others will believe him
"Every statement he made was true. @keithellison, you know you did that to me," she tweeted.
Karen Monahan did not respond to a request from The Associated Press asking for copies of the video or text messages.
"Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being," Ellison said. "This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false."
The allegations come days before Democratic voters choose between Ellison and other candidates in a Tuesday primary for attorney general.
