    The mainstream press is ignoring a report from Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer about Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who is running for Minnesota Attorney General without a law license. “As your next attorney general, I will be a people’s lawyer who will hold those in power accountable when they step on your rights — whether that’s Monsanto telling you how to raise your crops, Navient cheating student loan borrowers out of more money, or the federal government infringing upon health care, a woman’s right to choose, or the human and civil rights of all,” Ellison wrote in The Minneapolis...

  • Democratic Investigation of Keith Ellison Calls Ex-Girlfriend's Abuse Allegation Unsubstantiated

    (ST. PAUL, Minn.) — An ex-girlfriend’s allegation that Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison once physically abused her could not be substantiated because she refused to provide video she said she had of the incident, an attorney hired to investigate the claims concluded in a draft report obtained Monday by The Associated Press. The report was compiled by Susan Ellingstad, a lawyer hired by Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party to investigate the allegation against Ellison. “An allegation standing alone is not necessarily sufficient to conclude that conduct occurred, particularly where the accusing party declines to produce supporting evidence that she herself asserts exists,” Ellingstad...
  • Despite Allegations Against Ellison, DFL Attempts To Show Unity

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — DFL leaders called a press conference Thursday to show harmony after a bruising primary election. But if this is Democratic unity, one wonders what DFL dissension looks like. At the news conference, DFL Party Chair Ken Martin was peppered with questions about embattled Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison. “What I would say is that our party takes any allegation of domestic abuse seriously,” he said. “It’s a fluid situation. It’s still developing.”
  • Conservatives claim media, Dems ignoring allegations against Ellison (BRAKING NEWS?)

    **SNIP** Led by opinion hosts on Fox News, conservative figures looking to call out liberal hypocrisy have seized on accusations by Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan that he emotionally abused her and, during a 2016 argument, yelled profanities at her and dragged her off a bed. They claim that the national press, while giving ‘round the clock coverage to an allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman when they were both in high school, has ignored Monahan’s more recent claims about Ellison — and so, they argue, has the Democratic Party. “Guess what? Prominent Democrats line up in support, believe...
  • Democrats accused of trying to bury Ellison abuse allegations with sluggish probe

    Washington Times ^ | 9/21/18 | Valerie Richardson
    Democrats taking to the airwaves to denounce Judge Brett Kavanaugh have been considerably less focused on their own abuse investigation into Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison. The Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party said a month ago it would investigate after a former girlfriend accused Mr. Ellison of emotional and physical abuse, but since then the party has said nothing as the probe fades largely from view. That’s undoubtedly by design, said Larry Jacobs, professor at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, who characterized the investigation as an exercise in damage control aimed at providing the party with political...
  • On Ellison, Democrats and media go from #MeToo to 'Who ... me?'

    As the media frenzy over unsubstantiated accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reach a fever pitch, it’s truly instructive to observe the virtual news blackout over the case of Karen Monahan. Ms. Monahan has accused Rep. Keith Ellison, the vice chair of the Democratic National Committee and the party’s nominee for Minnesota attorney general, of physical abuse during the course of their relationship. Unlike Judge Cavanaugh’s accuser, Ms. Monahan is willing to go on the record to discuss the details of Mr. Ellison’s behavior. Also unlike Judge Cavanaugh’s accuser, Ms. Monahan has produced evidence to support the claims of...

    The Democratic and legacy media mantra that every alleged victim must be deemed credible and heard seems to have one big exception to that rule. It does not apply if you are a Democrat as evidenced by the reaction of the Democratic National Committee to the credible charges of abuse leveled against Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy DNC chair and candidate for Minnesota attorney general: The woman who accused Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse said on Monday that Democrats don’t believe her story and threatened to isolate her over the allegations. Karen Monahan, a former girlfriend, came forward...

    The woman who accused Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse said on Monday that Democrats don’t believe her story and threatened to isolate her over the allegations. Karen Monahan, a former girlfriend, came forward last month alleging that Ellison sent her threatening text messages and once screamed obscenities at her as he dragged her off a bed by her feet. Ellison has denied the accusations, saying he “never behaved this way.” He did acknowledge he was in a relationship with the woman. The allegations didn’t lead to any immediate action against the congressman, except for the announcement that...

    It’s been two weeks since the DNC announced it was “reviewing” domestic abuse allegations against deputy DNC chair Keith Ellison. The DNC still has no details on its investigation of the allegations and chairman Tom Perez recently passed the buck to the state party when asked about the DNC’s handling of the Ellison accusations. Prominent national Democrats are using the DNC investigation to avoid answering whether they believe Ellison’s accuser. ...

    Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Laborer Party leaders addressed domestic abuse allegations involving Congressman Keith Ellison during a Thursday news conference, just two days after he won the party’s primary for attorney general. DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin said Ellison has their support for now as the party’s candidate. "We take these allegations seriously, we are certainly eager to hear all the answers to the questions that have been raised,” said Martin. “We continue to watch the story develop, we don't know how it's going to develop and the conclusion at this point."

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 24, 2018
    ... There is a phrase for what is happening here: character assassination. Judge Kavanaugh’s good name is being smeared with sexual allegations on the eve of a Supreme Court confirmation vote in a campaign abetted if not orchestrated by Democrats. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, withheld Ms. Ford’s letter from her colleagues for six weeks until she sprung it at the last minute. She has since been demanding a fair and public hearing for Ms. Ford. But on Sunday she leapt on Ms. Ramirez’s claim to demand an “immediate postponement” in the hearing now scheduled for...

    The chairman of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party said investigators have concluded their investigation into abuse allegations against Rep. Keith Ellison by his former girlfriend, and it will issue its final report soon. “I’m starting to get a little frustrated because it’s been a long time now, almost two months,” Ken Martin told The Associated Press. “I hope soon. I hope any day here.” **SNIP** The Minnesota DFL Party’s attorney was initially tasked with investigating Monahan’s claim. But Martin hired an outside investigator so that the inquiry “wouldn’t be colored by people with associations with the party,” he said.

    A lawyer investigating a woman's claim that she was physically abused by Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison has concluded the allegation is unsubstantiated. The Associated Press on Monday obtained a draft of the report by Susan Ellingstad, an attorney hired by Minnesota's Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party to investigate the allegation .
