Keith Ellison’s Accuser: Democrats Isolated Me Because I Came Forward

Democrats only seem to care about victims of abuse and domestic violence if they can score political points.

Last month, the former girlfriend of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) came forward with accusations of domestic abuse. Despite the bombastic allegations, her story made few headlines, as Democrats reportedly threatened to isolate her if she continued pressing Ellison over the allegations.

Perhaps, Democrats are only worried about victims of abuse if attackers are Supreme Court Justice nominees appointed by a Republican president.

Karen Monahan, the woman being ignored by Democrats, said Ellison once dragged her off a bed by her feet while yelling obscenities. He also sent her threatening text messages that proved she suffered abuse.

But even after she shared the messages proving her claims were truthful, the Democratic Party chose to simply state they would review the allegations.

On Twitter, Monaham slammed Democrats for acting as if she was lying, adding that the party doesn’t believe women when they step forward to share their stories.

“I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party,” she said on Twitter. “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.”

“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.”

While she says the Democrats have disappointed her, Ellison’s accuser added she’s not pursuing a political agenda.

“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,” she said on Twitter.

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

Just before Monaham attacked establishment politicians for its hypocrisy on Twitter, Democratic strategist Peter Daou, the former adviser to both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, also took to Twitter to say that after Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser came forward, she was going to be “attacked, smeared, and demonized.

He added that people should “believe in women.”

Despite this comment, Democrats such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, the same who stood firmly against Kavanaugh after of the sexual assault allegations surfaced, remained strangely silent when Monaham accused Ellison of domestic abuse.

Democratic National Committee (DNC)’s chair, Tom Perez, was one of the first to call on an investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh. However, he has failed to discuss the allegations involving Ellison.

On Aug. 14, the DNC announced they would review Monaham’s accusations against Ellison. Unfortunately, the organization has yet to make any public statement about their findings.

It’s clear that in times of political turmoil, Democrats will claim to believe in anything to score some political points against their enemies, even if that means ignoring a victim of assault.
