Rep. Keith Ellison is denying allegations of abuse against a former girlfriend, made by the woman’s son, just days before he runs in his state’s primary for attorney general.

Austin Monahan, the son of Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan, shared a lengthy post on his Facebook page detailing physical abuse by the congressman during the relationship. Monahan said he saw hundreds of text messages and tweets by Ellison toward his mother that included victim shaming, bullying and threats if she publicly discussed the abuse. He also said he found a video on his mother’s computer of Ellison dragging Karen Monahan off a bed and screaming profanity at her.

Ellison, a Democrat from Minnesota, unequivocally denied the abuse and said the video does not exist in a statement Sunday.

“Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being,” Ellison said in the statement. “This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way, and any characterization otherwise is false.”
