The ex-girlfriend accusing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) of domestic abuse predicted that Ellison’s attempt to besmirch her character will backfire. Spectacularly.
Peter Hasson, reporting for The Daily Caller, explains:
Karen Monahan has accused Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the party’s nominee for Minnesota attorney general, of emotionally and physically abusing her during their years-long relationship.
Ellison accused Monahan of fabricating her allegations during a debate Friday night, where the congressman also suggested that more women may “cook up” allegations against him.
In a string of tweets early Sunday morning, Monahan claimed Ellison is using his daughter to “smear and lie about me.”
“It truly saddens me that Keith Ellison continues to have his daughter smear and lie about me. Why would you put your daughter and family in a position to lie and then have the truth come out about their lies. This is typical narcissist behavior, they will use their own kids,” wrote Monahan, an activist with liberal group Sierra Club.
The Democratic Party in Minnesota wholeheartedly endorsed Ellison two days after Monahan went public with her accusations. According to the latest polling, only five percent of Democrats believe she’s telling the truth.
