Credible allegations of domestic abuse against Dem AG candidate Keith Ellison


Allegedly Ellison was abusive with a former partner. Her son made the accusation on Facebook and claims there are text messages and a video to corroborate the abuse. I don't know if it's real or not, but the relationship appears to be and the claimed evidence presents a testable claim.

Normally, I'd say back off a bit on this stuff. This is an attack on character not policy, with unproven allegations that may never see a court of law, and (while not flattering) are not necessarily disqualifying.

But these are the new rules. Democrats use this sort of accusation against Republican candidates all the time, often when the accusations are a lot less credible with less supporting evidence. As far as I'm concerned, you can blanket Ellison's state with ads featuring the video. Democrats no longer get a free pass.

UPDATE: Another allegation.
