Keith Ellison’s Accuser Says Democrats Don’t Believe Her Story

Published

The woman who has accused Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse said that Democrats don’t believe her story and have threatened to isolate her over the allegations.

Ellison’s former girlfriend, Karen Monahan, came forward last month alleging that Ellison sent her threatening text messages and screamed obscenities at her while dragging her off a bed by her feet.

Ellison has denied the allegations, saying he “never behaved this way,” but did acknowledge the relationship he had with Monahan.

Rep. Ellison tweeted this photo of the couple in 2016: “Karen Francis Monahan especially loved “Little Red Corvette” at the Revolution Reunion .”

The 44-year-old Iranian-American sat down with CBS News in August to tell her story about the relationship she had with the man who wants to be Minnesota’s next Attorney General, Ellison.

“CBS NEWS EXCLUSIVE: sits down with the woman alleging Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) physically abused her in 2016. Ellison has denied the allegations.

“He met with me at a coffee shop closer to my place that evening, before he ran for [Attorney General],” Monahan remembered. “The conversation went straight to ‘Hey, you know, I noticed that you’ve been tweeting a lot, you know, about abuse and the #MeToo, and over months talking about your own [personal experience].”

Monahan went on to say that Ellison questioned her vocalization of the accusations to the public: “Are you going to keep tweeting about this? I don’t want to have to look over my shoulder all the time, wondering when you’re going to tweet something, and say it’s me.”

The alleged incident happened in 2016, according to Monahan, where she says Ellison blew up at her for her not immediately responding to his request to take the trash out.

“He looked at me, goes, ‘Hey you f***ing hear me… and then he looked at me, he goes ‘Bitch, get the f*** out of my house,’ and he started to try to drag me off the bed,” Monahan said.

One Twitter user referenced a statement by Peter Daou, former Hillary Clinton adviser, where he admonished others to believe Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford and posed a question To Monahan:

“. Democrats say believe women, do they believe you….”

“No, they don’t,” Monahan responded. “I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party,” she continued, regardless of her efforts. “I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.”

Monahan continued, “Four people, including my supervisor at the time, stated that I came to them after and shared the exact story I shared publicly, I shared multiple text between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more. As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed”

Monahan is not backing down, even in the face of political resistance.

“I didn’t break my silence for validation or any outcome. I did it for my own internal freedom and to stand w/ other survivors. I have nothing to prove to anyone, I simply shared my story. People can believe it or not. I don’t need anyone to affirm my humanity, I affirmed it.”

“The fact that both parties only care if it scores political points is hypocritical. Do you think a person who has dealt with any form of abuse by an politicians is thinking about politics? No, we & are families are trying to heal”
