As you may not have heard, with all the hysteria over “women’s rights” and #BelieveWomen, an ex-girlfriend of Rep. Keith Ellison claimed that when she dated Ellison in 2016, he dragged her off a bed by her feet while screaming obscenities.  Ellison is more than just a congressman, he’s a deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee now running for Minnesota attorney general.

He denied this.  And according to the Washington Times, “a draft report of an investigation requested by the state Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party found that Monahan’s claims were unsubstantiated . Since the report was leaked Monday, the DFL has said it wanted law enforcement to conduct an objective investigation.”

However, the Minneapolis Police said they won’t investigate these allegations against because of a conflict of interest. What does that even mean?  Ellison is running for Minnesota’s attorney general, but that doesn’t present a “conflict of interest” in a nation that is governed by laws.

Of course, the cold harsh truth is that Democrat women won’t be putting on pink hats and burning their bras over this one.  No.  They #BelieveWomen unless that woman is hurting their political chances.

Their concern for women ends precisely where their political vested interest begins.
