MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Congressman Keith Ellison says he is requesting a House Ethics Committee investigation into physical abuse allegations against him.

Karen Monahan says Ellison dragged her off a bed by her feet in 2016 while screaming obscenities at her.

The democrat running for Minnesota attorney general denies it ever happened.

In recent weeks, Monahan has shared medical records and details of the alleged abuse.

In a statement, she wrote in part, “The smears and fabrications that have been spread in the community and media about me are not about a politics of justice and humanity, in fact they are cruel and mean spirited.”

Doug Wardlow, the GOP candidate for Minnesota attorney general, said he welcomes “any open and transparent investigation into these allegations as the victims should be heard.”
