Medical Records Show Ellison Accuser Discussed Abuse Allegations with Doctor in 2017

Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D-MN-05) accuser recently released medical documents showing that she discussed the abuse allegations with a doctor in November of 2017.

Karen Monahan, Ellison’s ex-girlfriend who accused the congressman of domestic violence in August, posted a medical record to Twitter Monday night, revealing that she “was in a very stressful environment for years,” and experienced “emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated.”

“She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly,” the medical record states.

Earlier in the evening, Monahan expressed her frustration over being ignored by the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party, which she worked for in various activism capacities.

“I’ve been smeared, threatened, [and] isolated from my own party,” she tweeted. “I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.”

Monahan also noted that four different people, including her former supervisor, have corroborated her story by claiming that she came to them after the abuse “and shared the exact story” that she shared publicly.

“I shared multiple text[s] between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more. As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed,” she continued. “I expected everything that has taken place, before I decided to break my silence.”

Monahan later revealed that she was allegedly invited to discuss the allegations with an “investigator,” and would “be happy to talk with Keith Ellison with them in the room.” Ellison, however, apparently declined “any meeting’ with Monahan.

The new revelations in the Ellison case come in the midst of a contentious battle to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was recently accused of sexually assaulting a girl while the two were in high school.

Some have pointed out that media outlets have covered the Kavanaugh allegation “100 times” more than the Ellison investigation, pointing to 225,000 Google News results for Kanavaugh’s accuser and just 2,070 results for Monahan.
