After being accused of domestic violence, Dean Phillips 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 3rd Congressional District. The ad highlights Dean Phillips’ support for 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 Dean Phillips continues to support his campaign despite the allegations,” said Courtney Alexander, CLF Communications Director. “Dean Phillips’ choice to put his political interests over standing with a domestic abuse victim is appalling. Dean Phillips should immediately join the National Organization for Women in calling for Keith Ellison to end his campaign.”
Watch the ad, “(MN-03) 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.”
VO: Now, the National Organization for Women is calling for Ellison to end his campaign.
But Dean Phillips is standing by Keith Ellison.
Backing Ellison instead of believing his victim?
VICTIM: “And he started trying to drag me off the bed.”
VO: Dean Phillips should be ashamed.
