Karen Monahan is Keith Ellison’s ex-girlfriend. IJR reports that Monahan has accused Ellison of domestic violence. Monahan’s son, Austin Aslim Monahan broke the news via Facebook.
The Daily Caller explains that Monahan is a Sierra Club activist. Ellison admits that they were previously in a relationship but denies any wrongdoing.
Keith Ellison is a politician and lawyer who recently announced that he would run for Minnesota Attorney General. This news could ruin his chances. Keith’s ex-wife, Kim released a statement explaining that the behavior Monahan describes does not match the character of the “Keith I know.”
Monahan shared the following tweet, confirming her son’s claims:
The tweet below explains that Monahan never intended to share her story with the world. If it wasn’t for her son discovering the video on her computer, this would still be a secret.
It’s difficult to believe that Monahan’s son would make up a lie about finding a video that shows his mother being dragged and verbally abused. If Keith Ellison continues to deny these allegations Monahan may feel forced to release the video.
