Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn) is the current Deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee and has received abuse allegations against his ex-girlfriend. The allegations Keith Ellison has received are physically and emotionally abused his former girlfriend, Karen Monahan. These allegations may spell trouble for his Minnesota Attorney General Primary.
These abuse allegations broke when Karen Monahan’s son Austin Aslim Monahan broke the news on Facebook.
“In the middle of 2017, I was using my mom’s computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file, I found over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a ‘f**king bitch’ and telling her to get the f**k out of his house,” Austin claimed.
“The messages I found, were mixed with him consistently telling my mom he wanted her back, he missed her, he knew he f**ked up and he wished he could do things different, he would victim shaming, bully her, and threaten her if she went public. I text him and told him I know what you did to my mama and a few other things,” he explained.
Austin Aslim Monahan and his brother confronted their mother about the abuse they discovered, where their mother said don’t go public with the information claiming, “it was not in their best interest.”
“My mom has always tried to protect me and my brother. She doesn’t have to protect us anymore and we aren’t letting her stand alone,” Austin wrote.
Austin Aslim Monahan also wrote on his Facebook:
“Please read, if you care about my mother please share.”
“I love you momma, you wont have to stand alone #ibelieveher #wearemanenough #timesup… See More”
Austin’s Mother Karen Monahan responded on Facebook:
“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”
Keith Ellison responded to these seemingly CREDIBLE allegations:
“This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false,” Ellison said.
It is worth noting Keith Ellison has established he has a temper that he can’t control in many of his speeches and comments. Also, it is worth noting Keith Ellison was in a violent group “The Nation Of Islam” and close friends with Louis Farrakhan. It is reasonable to conclude Keith Ellison has a history of showing erratic emotions where these allegations do seem credible.
Keith Ellison has been considering a presidential run in 2020 for the Democrat Party. However, it seems with these new allegations that will be unlikely to happen.
