Women's March organizer and activist Linda Sarsour ignored a question on Friday about whether she believes Karen Monahan, Democratic National Committee deputy chair Keith Ellison's ex-girlfriend who accused the Minnesota Democrat of physically and emotionally abusing her.
Monahan accused Ellison in August of hurling profane insults at her and dragging her out of bed in 2016, but Ellison has repeatedly denied the charges. Ellison was denying the charges as recent as two weeks ago at a PBS Almanac debate, saying the charges were simply not true. Ellison, who is running for Minnesota attorney general, was asked whether there would be other allegations.
"Look, in this political environment, I don't know what somebody might cook up," Ellison replied. "But I could tell you that there is absolutely nobody that I am aware of who has any sort of—who is threatening or suggesting or who has ever made a prior accusation about me."
