The deputy-chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Keith Ellison, has been accused of domestic violence by the son of a woman he had engaged in a long-term relationship with.
The woman has since backed up her son’s claims by saying, “You know you did that to me.”
Austin Monahan, whose mother Karen Monahan is the alleged victim, posted on social media that she had “come out of pure hell after getting out of her relationship” with the prominent Democrat lawmaker.
Austin claims that he stumbled onto archived text messages and images accidentally while using his mother’s computer.
In those files was a roughly two-minute video which “showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a ‘f***ing b****’ and telling her to get the f*** out of his house.”
This post was brought to my attention because I was tagged in this post. Domestic Violence is never ok. The incidents described are troubling. I call on Keith Ellison to answer these allegations.https://t.co/CQ1LSVfZqf

Ellison has since issued a brief statement denying the allegations.
“Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being,” he explained. “This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false.”
Wow. These are some very serious abuse allegations against Congressman Keith Ellison (D). Ellison is also the Deputy Chair of the DNC. https://t.co/QMer1u2WfK

Monahan however, has contradicted that denial, turning this into a troubling he said/she said allegation unless video does indeed surface.
“Every statement he made was true,” she said of her son’s claims. “(Keith Ellison), you know you did that to me.”
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

In April, Ellison ironically told a crowd at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee National Candidate Training forum that women were being harmed – even dying – because Republicans were winning elections. (RELATED: DNC Vice Chair Says Women Are Dying Because Democrats Aren’t Being Elected).
“Did you know that in Missouri and in Texas and maybe other places maternal mortality has risen?” he asked. “Women are dying because we are losing elections. We don’t have the right to lose a damn election. We have to win.”
In reality, they’re being harmed just by being close to Ellison.
Ellison is scheduled to square off against other candidates in a Tuesday primary for attorney general.
His opponents are demanding a response to the story with one even suggesting any materials pertaining to the alleged abuse should be turned over to law enforcement.

They are getting what they deserve because all they do is for themselves. Everything else is a lie, they are cheating or stealing and it is OK because they are above the law.If they don’t quit insiteing hate the party will fall apart.
Go get her Keith. If she mouths off bash her a good one, then kick her when she’s down. Stomp on her a few times. Then say, sweetly, let’s go to bed and you can make love to me honey.
This is what we have learned to expect from demonCRAPS.
Democrats have no morals.
ellison is a POS converted muslim and doesn’t deserve to be in the position he’s in….take him out….PERIOD….
Show me a devout male Muslim who doesn’t abuse their spouse!
Come on Austin! Release a copy of the tape to Fox News (who will air the tape and not hide it in archives). I would like to see Allison deny visual evidence like he has done with the statements made by Austin and Karen. Submit them before Allison’s lawyers find a way to block its release and definitely before Fox News changes its politics (happening soon with leadership change)
Keith Ellison dumocrat congressman is a Muslim. Muslims regularly beat there women and children. If you want to see how merciful Muslims are to women go to You Tube.See how they publicly flog there women with canes. for the slightest infraction of the Koran. The dumocrats are the party of women yeah right. If you asked Ellison if he did anything g wrong he would say no??? just my opinion.
Watch for more to come forward, since this woman and her son were brave enough to come forward.
Don’t Muslims abuse children and women.They beat ,stone and kill.This Muslim America hater is guilty,the way he behaves,speaks you can hear a brutal beast talking
A classic example of adherence to and idolization of the concept that, no matter what, the ends justify the means. Perfidious behavior, self-righteous indignation and enough hypocrisy to float the Titanic combine in this man in order to take down “the great satan” (that would be you and me, by the way). I wish for the worst for him and his.
Of course the allegations are true…he is a Democrat after all. Democrats are the bottom feeders of politics.
