Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison fled the scene of a campaign stop when confronted about the domestic abuse allegations made against him by former girlfriend Karen Monahan.
Independent journalist Laura Loomer caught up with Ellison during a campaign event in Minnesota on Saturday and immediately bombarded the first Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress with questions about his alleged abuse of two women.
Ellison was first accused in 2006, when progressive activist Amy Louise Alexander claimed that the lawmaker verbally abused her, grabbed her and pushed her during an argument.
Last month, Austin Monahan, the son of Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan, posted on Facebook that he found a video on his mother’s computer that showed Ellison attempting to drag her off the bed while swearing at her.
Ellison denies all the allegations made against him.
“How are you going to run for attorney general when there’s domestic abuse allegations against you?” asked Loomer as one of Ellison’s aides tried to block her.
Loomer then confronted Ellison with his previous call for Senator Al Franken to resign following the sexual assault claims against him.
“When are you going to do the right thing and resign for abusing two women?” asked Loomer as Ellison’s supporters continued to physically block her.
“Why should the women of Minnesota vote for a man who has been accused of abusing women….what happened to the ‘Me Too’ movement?” asked Loomer.
Ellison then tried to leave the event as Loomer waved a police report of the Alexander allegation in front of his face.
As Ellison fled to the safety of his vehicle, his staff continued to get in Loomer’s face to accuse her of ‘violating rules’.
“He took his oath on the Koran, maybe he should read the Constitution,” responded Loomer.
The controversy surrounding Ellison emerged two months before the election to determine Minnesota’s attorney general, where Ellison faces off against Republican Doug Wardlow.
