After being accused of domestic violence, Angie Craig continues to back Keith Ellison
WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new television ad, “Ashamed,” in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District. The ad highlights Angie Craig’s support for Congressman Keith Ellison who has been accused of domestic violence, instead of believing his victim and joining the National Organization for Women in calling for Ellison to end his campaign. The ad will run on television and digital platforms throughout the district.
“Keith Ellison has been accused of domestic violence and Angie Craig continues to support his campaign despite the allegations,” said Courtney Alexander, CLF Communications Director. “Angie Craig’s choice to put her political interests over standing with a domestic abuse victim is appalling. Angie Craig should join the National Organization for Women in calling for Keith Ellison to end his campaign.”
Watch the ad, “(MN-02) Ashamed,” here.
VO: Disturbing allegations of domestic violence against Congressman Keith Ellison.
VICTIM: “He goes (expletive). Get the (expletive) out of my house and he started trying to drag me off the bed.”

Backing Ellison instead of believing his victim?
