Minnesota Attorney General Race Neck and Neck As Ellison Faces Pressure To Drop Out Over Abuse Allegations

Published

on

A recent poll suggests that the Minnesota Attorney General race is gearing up to be one of the closest races in the country ahead of the first televised debate between Keith Ellison and Republican challenger Doug Wardlow.

Although Ellison currently maintains a narrow lead over Wardlow, support for Ellison is declining throughout the Democrat party amid growing concerns of numerous allegations of domestic violence that have been brought against Ellison.

One of the key reasons why Ellison is leading in the polls is the fact that Ellison, who is a U.S. Congressman in Minnesota’s 5th District, has more name recognition than his opponent, who is a lawyer and former state representative.

However, even though Ellison has name recognition, with 80 percent of voters recognizing his name, 31 percent of Minnesota voters view him unfavorably, a number that is increasing amid the claims of domestic violence.

On Wednesday, Karen Monahan, who also dated Ellison and accused him of domestic violence, released evidence of her claims when she tweeted a picture of a 2017 medical record that documents her stress and anxiety level as being directly related to her abusive relationship with Ellison.

The medical report from Jodi K. Milburn, MD reads,

“She (Monahan) states that she was in a very stressful environment for years, emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated. She did not have any physical injuries that required physical examination in the past. She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Keith Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identified him publicly. She feels that she is in a safe environment now and she is following up with therapy and relaxation. She has had reduced anxiety with extracting herself from the relationship and she feels much healthier now.”

Since being accused of domestic violence by two different women, Ellison has denied the allegations, but has not answered to the fact that evidence in the form of a 2005 police report documents a 911 domestic call to the home of Amy Alexander, who dated Ellison and has since accused him of being physically and emotionally abusive towards her.

According to Star Tribune, “800 likely voters participated in the Minnesota Poll conducted Sept. 10-12. Of those, 37 percent were Democrats, 31 percent Republicans and 32 percent independents. The poll’s margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.”

Ellison and Wardlow will debate on Friday, September 21, 2018 in a LIVE PBS televised debate.

The election in Minnesota is November 6, 2018.

‘Team Mitch’ Alumnus Nick Sandmann Fires Controversial Defamation Attorney Lin Wood

Sandmann is accusing Wood of making false statements about himself.

Published

Conservative activist Nicholas Sandmann, the former Covington Catholic student turned cheerleader for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has dropped high-profile defamation attorney Lin Wood after Wood made public statements about Sandmann on the Telegram social media platform.

“No client had abandoned me but I expect Nicholas Sandmann may do so as he be (sic) feeling the pressure from members of Mitch McConnell’s team on which Nicholas worked this election cycle,” Wood wrote in the Telegram post.

Wood’s prediction would soon come to pass as Sandmann made the public announcement on Monday that he is dropping Wood as his attorney.

Even though Wood says he has been abandoned by friends, family, and now one of his most high-profile clients, he intends to continue fighting against corruption no matter what the cost.

“Until and unless they silence me by imprisonments or death, I will not stop fighting for We the People, for honest elections, for freedom, and for the thousands of little children who are being abused, molested, and sacrificed for the demonic pleasures of very evil people in this world – including leaders in our government,” Wood wrote.

Sandmann posted Wood’s Telegram rant on Twitter as well:

Big League Politics has reported about the settlement that Wood helped Sandmann receive after he was slammed by the fake news media for smiling at a gin-soaked Indian after a Washington D.C. pro-life rally in 2019:

Fake news giant CNN settled the lawsuit filed against them by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann today for an undisclosed sum following their biased coverage against the child last year.

Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN as well as the Washington Post and NBC Universal for their alleged defamation of the student following the boy’s confrontation with far-left Indian activist Nathan Phillips. The cases against the WaPo and NBC are still active.

“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” said Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood.

Wood also claims that Gannett, the parent company behind the Enquirer, will be slapped with a lawsuit in the days to come. He says that Sandmann continues to suffer from “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” as a result of the mistreatment by the fake news.

Last year, the coverage of Sandmann was a galvanizing moment among the Right against the fake news and the liberal hate machine that never hesitates to destroy a young white man’s life over a pack of lies.

While Sandmann may have been justified tossing Wood aside due to his radical and unhinged comments over the past several months, the proud Team Mitch alumnus seems to be building up his bona fides as a establishment Republican.
