Ellison denies abuse allegations: ‘I never behaved in this way’

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Sunday denied allegations posted on social media accounts linked to the family of his former girlfriend that he had behaved abusively towards her.

Ellison, who is battling four challengers for his party’s nomination in the race for Minnesota attorney general, spoke out through his campaign after a Facebook post alleging past abuse began circulating. The post came from the son of his former girlfriend Karen Monahan.
