Skip to comments.Attorney for Keith Ellison asks judge to keep divorce records closed
Posted on 10/05/2018 1:45:47 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
An attorney representing U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison has asked a judge to deny motions by the Star Tribune and Alpha News to unseal his 2012 divorce proceedings, instead suggesting that the judge privately review the file and unseal any records that refer to allegations of abuse.
Last month, the Star Tribune joined a legal effort to unseal the divorce records, following a similar action by a right-leaning online news and opinion site. The efforts follow allegations by Ellisons ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, that the Democratic candidate for attorney general tried to drag her off a bed during an argument in 2016. He denies the allegation and an attorney hired by the DFL Party to investigate the claim could not substantiate it after Monahan refused to share a video of the incident that she has said she recorded.
Attorney Carla Kjellberg wrote in a memo to a Hennepin County judge on Thursday that the records should not be unsealed because of concerns for the privacy of Ellison and his ex-wife, Kim Ellison, their safety and pending court matters.

I didnt like it when the Trib pulled this with Jack Ryan; I dont like it now. There has to be a better reason to unseal than, newspapers want it. If it is pertinent to new charges, that would be different.
If he were a Republican, a loyal democrat activist in the vast government bureaucracy would have leaked them months ago.
If Keith were a Republican, his divorce records would have been leaked to the WaPo months ago.
GMTA and by 12 seconds!
One of these days, people like Keith are going to get theirs.
Get obammy to do it. He’s good at that.
Thing is, it’s the Star Tribune requesting the unsealing of the documents.
They don’t come any more far left than the Strib.
Why don’t we see hysterical females carrying signs and screaming about this man?
Because he’ll give them abortion, and he is an America-hating non-White.
Why? Have Democrats stopped believing men’s lives are supposed to be scrutinized in full public view? Strange.
he is still a Mooslim women hater. GUILTY
Because Alpha News beat them to it, and they wanted to share in the scoop.
Here comes the payback!
Were you a Very Bad Muslim ?
Like I said, it’s the Star Tribune making the request.
I know, let’s put Diane Feinstein, Shiela Jackson Lee and Barack Obama in charge of keeping them sealed. What could go wrong?
