Hypocrisy: Dems Ignore Ellison Accuser While Demanding Kavanaugh Probe
The DNC remains silent on much more credible accusations of domestic abuse by Ellison.
Democrats who ignored accusations against their own are now loudly clamoring for the need to fully investigate the politically timed accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Recall this past August that Karen Monahan, former long-term girlfriend of current DNC Deputy Chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), accused him of domestic abuse. Ellison, who is running for Minnesota attorney general, denied the allegations and the DNC offered nothing other than the standard “we’re looking into it” statement.
Fast forward to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) last-minute accusation against Kavanaugh of an alleged incident from 36 years ago and none other than DNC Chairman Tom Perez, who has remained conspicuously silent regarding the claims against Ellison, jumped into the fray. Perez declared Monday, “This is a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land and this serious allegation must be investigated thoroughly. The American people deserve answers, not a vote that is rammed through by Republicans. There is too much at stake.”
Meanwhile, Monahan noted the Democrats’ blatant hypocrisy in their calls to believe women. She wrote, “I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party. I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.” She added, “Four people, including my supervisor at the time, stated that I came to them after and shared the exact story I shared publicly, I shared multiple texts between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more. As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed.”
Monahan has company. When Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) pontificated that “we must respect and listen to survivors of sexual assault,” Juanita Broaddrick replied, “Well, Dick, do I have a story for you. Once upon a time Bill Clinton raped me.”
It would appear that the “party for women” only listens to women when it helps to further its own political agenda.
