After he recently found himself Loomered by independent journalist Laura Loomer at a campaign stop before he got in his car and ran away, Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison learned a painful lesson Friday evening. Laura Loomer is not the only journalist who knows about his past when it comes to several allegations of domestic violence that have been made against him. Despite the fact that the allegations made against him have received almost no media attention at all in comparison to the recent sexual misconduct allegations that have made against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison found himself grilled during a televised debate that took place Friday. There is no escaping these allegations since they stay at his heels like a pack of hunting dogs just waiting for him to slip chasing him from one campaign stop or debate to another throughout his run for Minnesota attorney general.
The opponent of Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison Republican candidate, Doug Wardlow, has cited the statements given by two different women from Keith Ellison’s romantic past. Both Amy Alexander and Karen Monahan have released details about their romantic history with Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison that he more than likely wishes could just be made to disappear. At a time when most of America is more worried about a white blonde woman in California named Christine Blasey Ford and whether or not Judge Brett Kavanaugh did what she has accused him of, Keith Ellison has denied his own accusations that have been made against him when the two women say that he has a history of turning violent when he loses his temper.
During the debate Republican candidate Doug Wardlow succeeded at getting under the skin of Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison when he said, “I think two credible, strong allegations of domestic abuse is enough.”
The irritation of Keith Ellison was able to be seen as he quickly countered, “there’s not two. There’s zero.”
Although there is a medical record that has been repeatedly shared by Karen Monahan where he is identified as the abuser responsible for her injuries Keith Ellison has tried to minimize the value of the value and accuracy of the medical report that was signed by a doctor. The doctor who handled the medical report wrote Karen 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 identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly.
Keith Ellison is trying to voters that an independent investigation is going to clear his name and show that the claims of Karen Monahan hold no truth, however his Republican opponent does not believe that the investigation is as independent as he makes it sound. Instead of believing the words of Keith Ellison his Republican opponent Doug Wardlow said, “It’s not an independent investigation! It’s independent by your friends and fellow party members. That’s not an independent investigation.”
Anyone who got to see the debate that took place between Keith Ellison and Doug Wardlow is aware that the cracks are beginning to show in the foundation where Ellison is concerned. The first crack showed when he became nervous after the moderator questioned why he refuses to meet with an investigator and Amy Alexander together at the same time. Once the question was put out there for everyone to hear Keith Ellison said, “well, because I — we broke up two years ago for a reason. I didn’t want to be in the relationship and therefore, I left the relationship. And to get back in touch with her again is not something that I am interested in doing.”
One can only hope that Laura Loomer was watching this debate because the second crack in his foundation came when he was asked if anyone else would step forward with allegations against him. Keith Ellison answered, “look, in this political environment, I don’t know what somebody might cook up. But I could tell you that there is absolutely nobody that I am aware of who has any sort of — who is threatening or suggesting or who has ever made a prior accusation about me.”
It was at this point in the debate when Doug Wardlow voiced his opinion that two strong allegations against Keith Ellison is enough.
To Laura Loomer and any other writer who may be working on this. Keith Ellison slipped up. His answer indicates that there may be more victims out there. Lets find them. In the words of those on the Judiciary Senate committee, their stories deserve to be told. Their voices deserve to be heard.
