Rep. Keith Ellison, who is facing abuse allegations from an ex-girlfriend, says hes considering stepping down from his position as the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee.
The congressman told WCCO Radio on Wednesday that hes considering stepping down from his DNC role to focus solely on the race for Minnesota attorney general.
I need to put 100 percent of my time, energy and resources into the race and my office, so it is something I am considering, he told the radio station.
Earlier this year, Ellison announced that he was leaving his 5th District seat to pursue the attorney generals office. In August, he won a crowded Democratic primary and now faces Republican Doug Wardlow in the up-coming November election.
Days before the August primary, Karen Monahan, an ex-girlfriend, accused Ellison of domestic abuse. She said that the congressman dragged her off a bed by her feet while cursing at her.
Monahan has said video of the abuse exists. Ellison says it does not, and has denied all accusations of abuse.
Earlier this week, it was reported that an investigation requested by the DFL found that Monahans claims of abuse were unsubstantiated. Now the party is seeking law enforcement to conduct another investigation on the abuse claims.
Minneapolis police declined to do it, citing a conflict of interest since Ellisons son, Jeremiah Ellison, who is on the city council. As such, Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom was asked to review the case. He said he would only do it if a police investigation happened first.
Not enough. I want to see your calendars for the past 36 years.
“...considering stepping down...”
Hey, dummocraps, get his girlfriend to knock him down. A little justice.
Now how can this be? I thought he was found NOT GUILTY by the media and the DNC.
He needs to stay! He needs to be the face of the Democrat Party!!!
HANG TOUGH, KEITH!
Point your fingers, three point back at you.
Reap the Whirlwind, Rats.
Minimum next step, drop out of the AG election contest in Minnesota.
I would rather Ellison stay and go down to a crushing defeat.
How about stepping down from the country as well
I hear the Green Party is recruiting.
that is a distraction to take the heat off. won’t Work!
And his emails, going back to when he first came to Washington.
And his campaign funding sources.
He’s not going away. He will be back, looking to get into public office, to spread the unconstitutional ideology of death and destruction by means of public office.
He should step down to spend more time with other inmates.
Please don’t go Keith. You are the best thing the GOP has going for it running up to the mid terms. Hang in there buddy.....you can do it!
I guess being a thug who beats up women isn’t the ‘face’ the democrat party needs right now...
Maybe the creepy porn lawyer can step into his spot...
Polls arent looking good. My guess.
An actual woman abuser with credible evidence against him...I say keep him on as their poster boy for hypocrisy.
And I suspect they will, Dems are doing the exact opposite politically favorable things right now as they are so enraged with hate they cannot see the damage it is doing to them.
