Karin Housley, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Minnesota, issued the following statement regarding the allegations of domestic abuse made against Rep. Keith Ellison:
“It has become crystal clear that Tina Smith moves wherever the political winds send her. Earlier this month, she reiterated her support for Keith Ellison despite the horrifying allegations of domestic abuse made against him. Now, as she ramps up her calls for a ‘full and thorough’ investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh, her support for Keith Ellison has become politically inconvenient. But with the House of Representatives soon adjourning and Keith Ellison leaving Congress at the end of the year, their calls for a congressional ethics investigation are nothing more than political cover – and Minnesotans see right through it.
“I’m calling Tina Smith’s bluff for what it is: disingenuous, partisan hypocrisy in the name of political expediency.”
