Why Schneiderman left but not Ellison

Despite (maybe because of) credible accusations of domestic abuse, Minnesotans elected Democrat Keith Ellison as their state attorney general. He won by four points over Republican Doug Wardlow.

How things have changed in the last six months. Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow wrote an expose in New Yorker that the New York Attorney General, Democrat Eric Schneiderman, abused four women.

Very quickly, the publication added an update at the top of the story: "Three hours after the publication of this story, Schneiderman resigned from his position. 'While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time,' he said in a statement. 'I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.'

The story was posted on May 7.

Ellison's ex-live-in girlfriend's allegations of abuse did not prompt the Democrat Party to abandon him. They circled their wagons.

CNN reported, "In August, the son of Ellison's former girlfriend Karen Monahan detailed allegations of physical abuse by the congressman in a Facebook post, saying that he discovered a video on his mother's computer in 2017 that allegedly showed Ellison attempting to drag Monahan off a bed while cursing at her."

So why did Schneiderman resign but not Ellison?


Schneiderman was disposable. Ellison was not.

The Democrat governor of New York had the power to replace Schneiderman with another Democrat. In this case, Barbara Underwood.

But in Minnesota, the fear was voters would elect a Republican if they admitted that Ellison was a wife beater (well, girlfriend dragger). And so they rode out the storm.

My advice to women, never date a Democrat.

  1. Excellent.

    As with any totalitarian moment, what's good for the party is good for all.

  2. The Muslim activist is now DA.

    I'll be checking in with the Powerline blog that comes out of Minnesota over the next few years. If we think the Omaba DOJ was out of control, envision it with Lewis Farakhan in charge of it instead of Loretta Lynch.

    1. I always warned my kids to never move to a state where a major city can wreck the rest of the state. Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, etc. are obvious examples. Minnesota is now surprisingly another.

    2. Powerline is where I first heard about Ellison. He was running for the House then, and of course the Minneapolis Strib gave him their full protection. That this creep is now state Attorney General is a travesty and shows how far down Minnesota has gone:

      --Ellison publicly supported the Haaf murder defendants. In February 1993, he spoke at a demonstration for one of them during his trial. Ellison led the crowd assembled at the courthouse in a chant that was ominous in the context of Haaf’s cold-blooded murder: “We don’t get no justice, you don’t get no peace.” Ellison’s working relationship with Sharif Willis finally came to an end in February 1995, when Willis was convicted in federal court on several counts of drug and gun-related crimes and sent back to prison for 20 years.

      The Haaf case wasn’t an aberration for Ellison. In February 2000, he spoke at a fundraiser sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of the old National Lawyers Guild, on whose steering committee he had served—the chapter was raising funds for former Symbionese Liberation Army member Kathleen Soliah, who had been a fugitive from justice for 25 years, on charges related to the attempted pipe bombing of Los Angeles police officers in 1975.--

  3. If I recall correctly, Stalin murdered his wife himself. But what's one woman's life, when heroic socialist Stalin arranged and ordered the starvation and murder of 70 million people, many of whom were women?

  4. Ellison had double teflon: Muslim and black. They take precedent over feminist concerns about domestic abuse every time.


  5. Heck, Minnesota (Little Somalia) just elected a Muslim Somali woman to the US House of Reprobates who committed immigration fraud by "marrying" her brother while she was married to someone else so her kin could get a green card to join her in the US. Is it surprising they'd elect a woman-beater who didn't have him bragging on tape but actually did the dirty deed and got away with it. Talk about "believing women" who cry assault!

    1. PS: In case anyone was wondering, I would guess any chance Minnesota would finally outlaw female genital mutilation, which is apparently a tradition among its large foreign Somali population, or that anyone will ever be prosecuted for it by the newly elected State AG, is now somewhere between slim and none. Perhaps that may explain Ellison's motivation for seeking the office. Just a bit of speculating here.

    2. Of course. Only the tip of the iceberg (pun intended).

      You've made some wonderful, spot on, informative comments the past few days. Hope you continue to. I've sure enjoyed them.

    3. He has. I may tweak the MN moniker to North Somalia, though.
