One week after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced it was "reviewing" domestic abuse allegations against Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, the DNC has yet to provide the public with any updates on the allegations against him.
Ellison, the deputy chair of the DNC, is accused of physically and emotionally abusing his ex-girlfriend, liberal Sierra Club activist Karen Monahan. Ellison has vehemently denied Monahan's allegations.
The DNC released a statement Aug. 14, just hours before Ellison locked up the party's nomination for Minnesota attorney general, pledging to review the Ellison allegations, which the committee said "should be taken seriously."
"These allegations recently came to light and we are reviewing them," the DNC said in a statement, after initially remaining silent for 72 hours after the allegations came to light. "All allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing and should be taken seriously."
