Ellison Accuser Says She's Been Sidelined By Her Own Party

Karen Monahan, the ex-girlfriend of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) who is accusing him of sexual assault, regretted that her own party refuses to believe her, or at least address her allegations.

Monahan's sons were the first ones to make the abuse charges, posting a social media message claiming that Ellison physically and verbally abused their mother. The Democratic National Committee remained silent on the accusations for over a day, before announcing they were conducting a review.

Meanwhile, Democrats immediately took the word of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual abuse. 

Monahan's supporters make the point that her charges are just a year old, while Ford's are over 36 years old. 

Yet, Monahan said she "expected everything that has taken place" before she decided to break her silence. The double standard, the dismissal, etc.
