U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan has posted a medical document on social media that shows she told a doctor in 2017 that she had been in an abusive relationship with Ellison.

Monahan, who said Ellison domestically abused her in 2016, shared the patient progress notes from Nov. 2017 on Twitter several times this week.

Ellison, who is running for Minnesota attorney general, has denied the allegation, which emerged in August. Monahan’s son first told the story on social media, and she later confirmed what her son said. During a fight, Ellison pulled on her legs and feet while she was lying on a bed, Monahan said.

“Here is one of my Dr visits stating the abuse that occurred. It amazes me the measures people have to take for their humanity to be validated. #metoo,” Monahan posted on Twitter on Tuesday.


As someone who once really liked Keith Ellison...Karen Monahan's story has held up after this and I believe her.

but republicans said democrats would support their abuser candidates no matter what

based on that logic, you must not be a democrat

where my republicans at. i need more excuses and twisting of reality to understand this thread

He needs to go, but boy it will be fun to see those who dismissed Ford talking to her therapist about Kavanaugh 6 years ago, suddenly being ok with Monahan's doctor visit occurring nearly a year after the incident.

I believed her at first but then her constantly changing story about the flash drive struck me as odd. If she has this though then he needs to go.

I wasn't aware she'd changed her story, just that she'd moved and couldn't remember.

Regardless, I believed her account initially, and believe it now. Ellison was a solid progressive voice, but tough s***. Suck less. He needs to go away.

Nominate a progressive who isn't a domestic abuser in his place. Ellison has nobody to blame but himself there.

I'm confident that the Democrats will ask him to step down.

As they should.

He needs to go.

What are the circumstances? Like is there an alleged pattern? A one off incident? Was she refusing to leave his house or something?

He should pull himself from contention regardless. It just colors my impression of the guy
