Keith Ellison accuser blasts #MeToo politics after Feinstein’s conveniently-timed accusation

A #MeToo accuser strongly condemned those who use alleged victims of sexual assault and abuse as pawns for their political games, on Twitter Friday.

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison accuser Karen Monahan tweeted Friday blasting figures that try to use abuse claims for their own political benefit.

Monahan accused Ellison — the Democratic National Committee deputy chairman — of violently dragging her off a bed while they were dating. Monahan came out about the incident in August, detailing events that she alleged occurred in September 2016, according to CBS News.

Monahan’s tweet comes shortly after reports that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein sent a letter to the FBI Thursday regarding allegations that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had tried to force himself upon a woman when he was in high school.

The allegations were reported by The New Yorker Friday. Neither the woman’s name nor the crime has been reported.

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel cast doubt on Feinstein’s letter accusing him of assault.

Former Hillary Clinton aide Brian Fallon also tweeted Friday about Kavanaugh’s proclivity for “hiring women clerks.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley released a letter Friday signed by 65 women who allege they knew Kavanaugh in high school.

Monahan is an organizer at the Sierra Club and advocate for “Shane’s Law,” a proposed law to legally protect alleged victims from narcissistic bullying.

Monahan did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
