#MeToo double standard: Ellison accuser ‘bullied’ by same liberals celebrating Christine Blasey Ford

She accused a national political figure of domestic abuse, but nobody has asked Karen Monahan to present an award, or celebrated her as a MeToo icon, or put her on the short list for Person of the Year.

Instead, Ms. Monahan has watched her fellow progressives—some of whom were once her colleagues—turn on her after she went public in August with abuse allegations against her ex-boyfriend, Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota’s newly elected attorney general.

“There is definitely hypocrisy. There’s no doubt,” Ms. Monahan told the Washington Times.

The contrast between her experience and that of Christine Blasey Ford, who has emerged as a feminist folk heroine and media favorite after accusing now-Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault in September, could hardly be more striking.
