U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. – the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee and a candidate to be the top law-enforcement officer in Minnesota – was confronted at a campaign event by investigative journalist Laura Loomer about domestic-violence allegations brought against him by two women.
Loomer pressed Ellison about a 2005 police report filed by Amy Alexander, a Democratic activist, reported the Gateway Pundit blog.
Loomer apparently had the police report in hand on Saturday as she followed Ellison, continually asking him to explain the claims in the document in light of his denials.
The congressman did not respond to Loomer and instead headed to his car and was driven away, despite a brief attempt by Loomer to block his exit.
On Aug. 11, a woman named Karen Monahan accused Ellison of being physically and verbally abusive towards her. Ellison denied that claim as well, but Monahan responded, “You know you did that to me.”
Ellison, a supporter of the Hamas-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations, was spotted recently wearing a “No Borders” T-shirt. And he wrote to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos last month demanding the company stop selling books by any author condemned by the extremist Southern Poverty Law Center.
