Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison is facing violent abuse allegations less than a week before the Minnesota Primaries.
Someone claiming to be the son of a prominent Minnesota based environmental activist is accusing Ellison of physically assaulting his mother while the two ere in a relationship. According to the complaint Ellison physically assaulted and psychologically abused Sierra Club activist Karen Monahan while they were in a relationship.
Austin Aslim Monahan, who states he is Karen’s son says his mother convinced him not to make the incidents public because it would not be in her best interest.
Below are screen shots of what the son posted on his Facebook page.
His Mom Karen took to Twitter to say to leave her son out of it, and she would take all inquiries.
I am so proud of my son for his courage. But this situation impacted me. If you have anything to say, please say it me and leave him out of it. No nasty comments to him https://t.co/UC84loHz1m— Karen Monahan (@KarenMonahan01) August 12, 2018
