Keith Ellison (D.-MN) could be the target of a State investigation regarding the alleged abuse of his ex-wife. Karen Monahan, has accused him of physical and emotional abuse during their marriage. Via TheHill.com:
The Republican Senate nominee in Minnesota is calling for an “immediate” state investigation into domestic abuse allegations against Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), claiming the Minnesota attorney general’s office is best equipped to conduct an “impartial” investigation.
“Recent calls for a congressional ethics investigation, made by Keith Ellison and echoed by my opponent, amount to nothing more than political cover,” Karin Housley said in a statement. “Ellison will have left Congress by the time an investigation could be completed.”
Housley added that the allegations “raise significant doubts about Keith Ellison’s fitness to serve as Minnesota’s chief legal officer.” Ellison is running for Minnesota attorney general.
The Democrats seem to have a double-standard when it comes to the #MeToo movement. Allegations, with no evidence, are demanded attention as long as the declared offender is a Republican. But if the accusations fall on a fellow Liberal they are largely ignored.
