Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) has been accused of domestic violence by his former partner Karen Monahan. Ellison is currently running in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor primary for attorney general of Minnesota.
In a statement released Sunday afternoon, Ellison flatly denied the accusations.
Some of those allegations came to the forefront in a Facebook poston Saturday night. The post was authored by Austin Monahan, Karen Monahan’s son.
In the post, the younger Monahan notes, “My brother and I watched our mom come out of pure hell after getting out of her relationship with Keith Ellison. For several months we knew something wasn’t right and couldn’t figure it out. When we asked our mom if everything was ok, she told us she was dealing with some stress and would be ok.”

NO ENEMIES TO THE LEFT: HuffPo Reporter Urges Media Not To Cover Antifa Violence.
Huffington Post’s hate and extremism reporter lashed out at Vox on Monday because the media outlet dared to report on violence committed by antifa over the weekend.
Vox published an article about the planned Unite the Right rallies this past weekend that indicted antifa for engaging in violence while claiming to be against fascism.
“This weekend in Charlottesville and DC, though, it wasn’t neo-Nazis and white supremacists the antifa attacked,” the author explained. “It was police who were there to help keep the peace among all the demonstrators and journalists who were there to cover the events.”
Christopher Mathias, a HuffPo reporter who claims to cover “hate and extremism,” decried the article on Twitter.
“This is a bad article & is a good example of how not to cover white supremacy,” Mathias wrote.
Andrew Breitbart’s eeeeevil plan for the Huffington Post continues to bear fruit.
You know Antifa has hit rock bottom when even Vox can’t defend them
LIZ SHELD’S MORNING BRIEF: Antifa, Omarosa and Much, Much More. “You can get a sense of the counter-protestors agenda by their chants like ‘cops and Klan go hand in hand’ and ‘No borders, no walls, no USA at all.’ Politico reports that ‘Some counterprotesters shot fireworks in the direction of police officers around the time that Unite the Right participants were escorted away. Some protesters also threw eggs at police officers’.”
SHE’S ALSO A DEMOCRAT, THOUGH THEY DON’T GET AROUND TO TELLING YOU THAT UNTIL THE END OF THE STORY: She ran on responsible gun regulation, now she’s accused of killing her campaign treasurer.
