It is interesting that when accusations of sexual misconduct or abuse are brought against Democrat candidates, there is a new set of rules.
For the United States Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, he must prove his own innocence against an uncorroborated allegation of sexual assault more than 36 years ago. His accuser will get to appear before Congress, rather, her testimony is being demanded by Democrat lawmakers.
In the case of Congressman Keith Ellison, he is allowed to deny both of his victims any right to be heard and he recently said they are just making up the accusations — despite having medical records to verify them.
While Ellison represents the 5th district of Minnesota, he is not seeking re-election and is instead running to be the state’s next attorney general. The accusations brought against him are not derailing his campaign, as he recently won the Democrat primary and secured his party’s nomination.
Check it out, per BizPac Review:
Congressman Keith Ellison, who’s currently running to serve as Minnesota’s next attorney general, has vehemently denied the allegations of abuse against him, casting doubt on the credibility of accusers Karen Monahan and Amy Alexander.
During a post-primary debate Friday evening on Twin Cities PBS’ “Almanac” program, one of the moderators noted that 40 percent of Minnesota voters consider these allegations against the congressman to be a factor in whether or not they intend to vote for him come November.
In response, he tried discrediting both Monahan and Alexander, making it sound as if they were just spurned lovers.
But it gets worse…
Ellison victim shames and deflects the accusations as the actions of some crazed exes.
“Let’s talk about Amy Alexander,” Ellison started, per BizPac Review. “That was a case in 2005, when she was harassing me and my staff. I got an order for protection to have her not do that anymore. The judge awarded that in 2006 when I was running for Congress.”
“She filed a claim. It was denied by the judge for order of protection and then we went to a hearing and the judge said she was ordered to stop making the falsehoods against me and to not contact me at all.”
Alexander’s story is much different: “In May [of 2005], Keith wanted to try and quiet me so he came to my home uninvited. We had words. His anger kicked in. He berated me. He grabbed me and pushed me out of the way. I was terrified. I called the police. As he fled he broke my screen door. I have never been so scared.”
From BizPac Review:
While Ellison denies this ever happened, 911 call records obtained by investigate reporter Laura Loomer paint a different picture. And while it’s true Ellison did file a successful request for a restraining order against her, Alexander characterized the move as an attempt to “marginalize” her.
“He made this whole nightmare a matter of public record,” she wrote in her 2006 column, which may be seen below. “He silenced me. Now it’s my turn to be heard.”
Ellison was also asked about accusations brought forth by Monahan, whose claims to have been physically beaten and abused by Ellison while they were in a relationship.
“We were in a long-term relationship,” said Ellison, as BizPac Review reports. “It ended two years ago. Two days before the primary, she made these allegations. They’re not true. I’ve said that they’re not true. I’ve answered questions and gone on to make these points clear. There is an ongoing investigation.”
“Well, because I- we broke up two years ago for a reason,” he continued. “I didn’t want to be in the relationship and therefore, I left the relationship. And to get back in touch with her again is not something that I am interested in doing.”
But, again, it gets worse…
At the debate, Ellison’s Republican opponent in the attorney general race, Doug Wardlow, similarly questioned Ellison and defended the allegations:
And then came this doozy by one of the debate moderators: “Are you confident that no one else will step forward with any other allegations?”
Ellison replied by saying, “Look, in this political environment, I don’t know what somebody might cook up. But I could tell you that there is absolutely nobody that I am aware of who is threatening or suggesting or who has ever made a prior accusation about me.”
That was a very flimsy answer. Wardlow, who had until that point been quiet, then chimed in to note that the allegations against Ellison are “credible” and “strong.”

Here is another medical record, 6 months before the other one.
I specifically went into the emotional/narc abuse during this visit because I needed more than routine test done due to the nature of that type of abuse.
Yes, the physical still occurred. pic.twitter.com/DGAafGAcJ8

As Politico reports, the liberal hypocrisy over how they are treating Ellison and Kavanaugh could not be more evident. Democrats aid the accused when he’s a Democrat—not the victims—and the accuser so long as they are going against a Republican.
Led by opinion hosts on Fox News, conservative figures looking to call out liberal hypocrisy have seized on accusations by Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan that he emotionally abused her and, during a 2016 argument, yelled profanities at her and dragged her off a bed.
They claim that the national press, while giving ‘round the clock coverage to an allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman when they were both in high school, has ignored Monahan’s more recentclaims about Ellison — and so, they argue, has the Democratic Party.
“Guess what? Prominent Democrats line up in support, believe Kavanaugh’s accuser,” Fox News’ Sean Hannity said on his show Thursday night. “You’re hard-pressed to find any Democrats standing behind Ellison’s ex-girlfriend. That proves it’s politics.”
“An allegation against a sitting member of Congress, No. 2 at the Democratic National Committee, Keith Ellison, by a woman who has been on the record for some time, and it’s a lot more recent than 36 years ago. You don’t seem to hear a lot of Democrats,” guest host Ed Henry said on Fox & Friends Friday.
Guest Alan Dershowitz chimed in, “The one rule has to be a single standard for Democrats and Republicans.”
