The DNC gave a stunning response after this top Democrat got #MeToo’d
Deputy Chair of the Democrat National Committee, Rep. Keith Ellison (MN-5) has been accused of domestic abuse against his ex-girlfriend.
Rep. Ellison has denied the allegations.
But the way the DNC handled this #MeToo moment had everyone scratching their heads.
The Democrat Party has been quick to jump on the #MeToo bandwagon as long as it’s politically expedient for them.
But when one of their top party leaders was accused, they chose to remain silent.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has elected to remain silent as its deputy chair, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, battles allegations of domestic violence from an ex-girlfriend.
Sierra Club activist Karen Monahan and her son have accused Ellison of physically and emotionally abusing her during their relationship, which is said to have ended in 2016.
Monahan claims to have a video of Ellison dragging her off of a bed and yelling expletives at her. She told CNN that she misplaced the thumb drive with the video on it while moving, but three of her friends (who remained anonymous) said that Monahan told them about the alleged incident in the months after she moved out of his apartment.
Ellison, who is running for Minnesota attorney general and faces two opponents in Tuesday’s primary, has denied the allegations and said that the video doesn’t exist.
According to CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, multiple friends have confirmed Monahan’s story.
It is certainly an inconvenient time for these allegations to surface for Rep. Ellison just days before his primary election.
Of course, Rep. Ellison could be completely innocent and this could be a case of a former lover getting payback.
But if the shoe was on the other foot and these claims were brought forth against a Republican, the Democrat Party couldn’t jump on them fast enough.
Democrats have played the #MeToo movement up for their political gain.
But it is backfiring on them as more Harvey Weinsteins, Bill Clintons, Eric Schneidermans, and Keith Ellisons are revealed for what they truly are.
