Keith Ellison’s Abuse Accuser Says Democrats Have Threatened Her
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison’s domestic abuse accuser says the Democratic party not only doesn’t believe her claims, but they’ve also threatened her. These revelations have risen amid a mainstream media focus on claims that SCOTUS nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sexually assaulted a woman in the 1980s.
Karen Monahan, the accuser of Ellison, is the new line in the sand over abuse claims being handled differently depending on the accused party of representation.
No, they don’t. I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party. 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

Monahan is a Democrat, she’s provided medical records, and Ellison has a history of abuse towards multiple women. But it is clear that Monahan may be quarantined to the same purgatory that former President Bill Clinton’s accusers were sent.
Elison is a well-known and popular Anti-Trump figure in the war against all things Trump. Monahan’s accusations risk the reputation and respect of a man that is currently up for re-election in his home state and someone who’s consistently provided Anti-Trump soundbites to the media.
Case and point: Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein no longer has a career. Former Missouri Republican Gov. Eric Greitens was forced to resign when accusations regarding his behavior arose.
Ellison, it seems, is protected by a vest of Anti-Trump Teflon.
“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,” Monahan continued on Twitter.
“As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed.”
The original Tweet that Monahan is responding to is from Democratic strategist and former advisor to Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, Peter Daou.
Daou audaciously predicted that Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser would be “smeared” and “attacked.”
Daou said we should “BELIEVE WOMEN.”
Make no mistake: #ChristineBlaseyFord will be attacked, smeared, and demonized. She will sustain more venom and vilification than #Kavanaugh. That’s how this works.
BELIEVE WOMEN. https://t.co/5NJ7nBOs4k

Apparently, believing women is more an act of political convenience.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California sat on the Kavanaugh accuser’s allegations for three weeks while her “democratic activists Facebook posts” were cleansed or hidden. Feinstein waited to bring the allegations against Kavanaugh during his potential confirmation week.
Ellison’s accuser spoke to the New York Times just weeks ago, calling Ellison a “narcissist and gaslighter.”
“Narcissist abuse is very difficult to understand,” Monahan said in the interview. “It’s the gaslighting, it’s the habitual lying, it’s the making it seem like it was my fault for even asking why something happened.”
“My hair was falling out, I was anemic — narcissist abuse is horrid.”
UPDATE: This is a record of a 911 call from May 16, 2005. The caller reported she was assaulted by Keith Ellison. pic.twitter.com/Z080dzS702

If the #metoo movement was to work, it could only have done so sans political agendas getting involved. As it stands, there is a clear line in the sand that divides those who say they were abused by their political parties.
