BPR: Ex-girlfriend’s son says Dem Keith Ellison violently assaulted his mom. Says he has video evidence and abusive, threatening texts.
Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, the co-chair of the DNC, has been accused of domestic violence by the son of his alleged ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan.
The accusations were shared by Debra Hilstrom, a Democrat member of Minnesota’s house of representatives.
Hilstrom tweeted a link to the shocking Facebook post written by Austin Monahan, who had tagged Hilstrom in the hopes of shining a spotlight on the alleged abuse his mom suffered at the hands of Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress.
“This post was brought to my attention because I was tagged in this post,” Hilstrom tweeted late Saturday night. “Domestic Violence is never ok. The incidents described are troubling. I call on Keith Ellison to answer these allegations.”
Hilstrom is running against Ellison to be attorney general of Minnesota, which may be why Austin Monahan reached out to her. These skeletons in his closet could also explain why Ellison abruptly announced he would not seek re-election to Congress. MORE
