    A Minnesota Democratic candidate for Congress is poised to become the first Somali-American elected to the U.S. House. But as the election approaches, Ilhan Omar is dogged by questions about her past. The allegations first raised by conservative media in 2016 include claims that she married her brother and committed immigration fraud. More recent claims allege misuse of campaign funds. Last week, Minnesota Republicans in the 5th District launched a digital billboard campaign and website highlighting the allegations.

    A judge unsealed the divorce file for Democratic attorney general candidate Keith Ellison and his ex-wife Kim Ellison Wednesday morning. The couple divorced in 2012. The Star Tribune and Alpha News sued to have the files released after Ellison’s ex-girlfriend claimed he abused her. Ellison has denied the allegations. The media outlets argued the public has a right to know what is in the divorce records. In the documents, Kim does not accuse Keith of physical or emotional abuse.

    Kim Ellison said Tuesday that she has been the one pushing to keep records of her divorce with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison private, while the Minnesota Court of Appeals denied the Ellisons’ last-minute attempt to block the release of some information in the file. Their divorce file is expected to be unsealed Wednesday, following a District Court order issued last week by a Hennepin County Family Court referee. The Ellisons had petitioned the state Court of Appeals on Monday to delay that order and keep their divorce file sealed until they are given a chance to redact “confidential information” from...

    A court in Hennepin County has ruled the divorce records of U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison and his ex-wife will be unsealed. The referee in the matter issued his decision Friday. The documents will be unsealed next Wednesday, except for documents or portions of them that contain "restricted identifiers" or "financial source documents." Ellison's attorney Carla Kjellberg said Friday her client will appeal for a stay of the order. "Keith and Kim Ellison remain jointly opposed to this effort to exploit the details of their personal life, and the lives of their children, for political gain," she said in a statement....

    A Hennepin County family court referee said he wants to rule by Friday whether to unseal U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s divorce file in response to a legal effort by the Star Tribune and Alpha News. Referee Jason T. Hutchinson explained after an hourlong court hearing on Tuesday that if he did decide to unseal the file on Friday, it would still not be available for immediate public view. Instead, he would set a later date for opening it that would allow time for Ellison’s attorney to appeal the decision. The motions follow allegations by Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, that the...

    As a typical UKIP Brit you may fear for the future of our culture, our civilization even, as it is battered in the unattributable “War on Terror”. Yes, we are apparently fighting terror, terror without a cause, a first-mover, a motivation — and just try designating the likely originators of the next horrendous attack. Despite the statistical likelihood of the perps coming from a particular group being clear enough for a 10-year-old to have a good guess, be careful… and if you do, Chief Constable Dick may just get her knickers in a twist and fire off emails to her...

    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 Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, that the Democratic candidate for attorney general tried to drag her off a bed during an argument in 2016....

    Rep. Keith Ellison, who is facing abuse allegations from an ex-girlfriend, says he’s considering stepping down from his position as the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee. The congressman told WCCO Radio on Wednesday that he’s 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...

    The Minnesota DFL Party's attempt to find a law enforcement agency willing to investigate a domestic abuse claim against U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison was mired in uncertainty on Wednesday, after the Minneapolis Police Department said it would seek to refer the case to another jurisdiction. Earlier Wednesday, the DFL asked Minneapolis police to investigate the allegation after both a city attorney and a county prosecutor declined to review a report the party commissioned that did not substantiate the allegation. "Due to a conflict of interest, or the appearance of a conflict of interest, the Minneapolis Police Department will not be...

    The Minnesota DFL Party on Wednesday asked the Minneapolis Police Department to investigate a domestic abuse claim against U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, after both a city attorney and a county prosecutor declined to review a report the party commissioned that did not substantiate the allegation. Charlene Briner, a senior adviser for the party, told the Star Tribune on Wednesday that the DFL sent its investigative report to the Minneapolis Police Department “and asked that they investigate the claims described in the report to determine whether any criminal conduct occurred.” The party asked the Lockridge Grindal Nauen law firm in August...

    Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom has agreed to review claims of abuse made by the ex-girlfriend of Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, but only if a law enforcement agency completes an investigation first, according to a letter from the county attorney's office. The letter, which was sent to the Minneapolis City Attorney's Office, came a day after a report compiled by an attorney hired by the DFL. That letter indicated Karen Monahan's allegations that Ellison once physically abused her could not be substantiated was made public. The DFL said Monday they would ask the City of Minneapolis Attorney's Office for review....

    Karin Housley, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, has officially requested an investigation into the allegations of domestic abuse against Rep. Keith Ellison. Ellison, a Democrat running for attorney general in Minnesota, has been accused by his former girlfriend of physical and emotional abuse throughout the time they dated. Karen Monahan alleged Ellison once dragged her off a bed while shouting profanities and sent multiple abusive text messages. Ellison has vehemently denied the accusations and asked the House Ethics Committee to launch a probe into the allegations. Minnesota’s Democratic Party has also commissioned an investigation. But Housley, the GOP nominee...

    Merriam Webster defines “religion” as “a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices.” Islam certainly qualifies as a religion by that definition. Religions profess to connect human beings to the divine. Islam professes to do that. At the same time, however, it is also a political system that is authoritarian, supremacist, discriminatory, expansionist, violent, and aggressive. In reality, Islamic law’s political aspects contradict Constitutional principles and American freedoms in numerous particulars, including its denial of the freedom of speech, the institutionalized discrimination against women, non-Muslims, and other groups, its death penalty for apostasy from Islam and...

    WAIKIKI, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - An incident at a Waikiki hotel involving a member of Saudi Arabia's royal entourage is now under investigation by the Honolulu Police Department. Royal Hawaiian Hotel housekeeper Jackelyn Bautista says that an entourage member grabbed her arm when she couldn't open a locked door to an adjoining room.

    A strict Islamic district in Indonesia has banned men and women from having dinner together unless they are married or related to make women be 'more obedient' and 'well behaved'. The deeply Islamic Aceh province, which operates under Sharia Law, announced today it would stop unmarried couples eating together in public, an official said. Aceh is the only region in the world's most heavily populated Muslim majority country that imposes Islamic law and has come under fire in the past for putting moral restrictions on women. It also attracted global condemnation for publicly whipping people found guilty of a range...

    Two Malaysian Muslim women convicted under Islamic laws of attempting to have sex were caned Monday in a rare public whipping that was slammed by lawmakers and rights activists as a form of torture. Lawyers and activists said the women, aged 22 and 32, were seated on stools facing the judges and given six strokes from a light rattan cane on their backs by female prison officers. More than 100 people witnessed the caning in a Shariah courtroom in northeast Terengganu state, they said. Muslim Lawyers' Association deputy president Abdul Rahim Sinwan said unlike caning under civil laws, the punishment...

    Pressure on Keith Ellison to drop out of the race for Attorney General of Minnesota is growing. National and state party leaders are hedging their bets, mostly either refusing to comment or releasing anodyne statements. But the National Organization of Women has called on Ellison to step down. The best sign of mounting pressure is this: CBS has the story on the most recent domestic abuse allegation against Ellison: “Woman accusing Rep. Keith Ellison of abuse speaks out.” On Thursday, [Karen] Monahan, 44, spoke on camera for the first time about an incident she said happened nearly two years ago....
