A liberal-leaning women’s group is calling on Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison to resign from Congress and end his attorney general campaign following allegations that he physically abused his ex-girlfriend.
“We believe women. We believe Karen Monahan,” UltraViolet executive director Shaunna Thomas said in a statement Monday. “A domestic abuser does not belong in any position of power but particularly not as the top prosecutor in the State.”
“Keith Ellison should withdraw his candidacy for Minnesota’s Attorney General and resign from the House of Representatives.”
Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, denied he physically abused Monahan, an activist for liberal environmental organization, Sierra Club.

Monahan’s son, Austin, on Saturday first accused Ellison of beating his mother in a viral Facebook post. Austin claimed to have uncovered a video on his mom’s laptop that showed Ellison dragging her off a bed and screaming expletives at her.
“Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being,” Ellison declared in a statement Sunday. “This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way and any characterization otherwise is false.”
Monahan backed up her son’s account of events.
“What my son said is true. Every statement he made was true.@keithellison, you know you did that to me,” she tweeted Sunday.
“I have given every opportunity to get help and heal. Even now, [you are] willing to say my son is lying and have me continue to leak more text and info just so others will believe him.”
