Bernie Has No Comment on Me-Too Issue Re: New Dem Minnesota Attn Gen Candidate Keith Ellison “Nope, nothing. You’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get going,” Sanders told The Washington Post on Thursday when asked if he has anything to say about the Ellison allegations.
Ellison won the party’s nomination for Minnesota attorney general Tuesday despite Monahan’s allegations, which he has repeatedly denied.
Sanders campaigned for Ellison in Minnesota in July. (RELATED: Keith Ellison To Ex-Girlfriend: ‘We Don’t Have To Destroy About Each Other’)
Ellison was a strong supporter of Sanders’s 2016 presidential campaign and was the second congressman to endorse the socialist senator, who is technically an independent, but caucuses with Democrats in Congress.
The DNC said it’s “reviewing” the allegations against Ellison but has otherwise been hesitant to comment on the issue.
Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Claire McCaskill of Missouri were similarly noncommittal when the Post asked about the Ellison allegations Thursday. Both senators deferred to the DNC’s investigation.
“I know that the DNC is investigating it, so we’ll see and let that run its course,” Harris said. “I think that’s appropriate to look into it,” McCaskill said.
Monahan claims to have a video of Ellison dragging her off of a bed and yelling expletives at her, although she has yet to produce it and Ellison says it doesn’t exist.
Monahan’s son Austin first aired the allegations against Ellison on Saturday and claimed to have witnessed the video in question.
