Democratic National Committee deputy chairman Keith Ellison, who has been accused of domestic abuse by his ex-girlfriend, is weighing stepping down from his position at the DNC.

Ellison said he needed to focus on his upcoming race for Minnesota attorney general in November, and said he was “considering” resigning during an interview with WCCO Radio on Wednesday.

"You know, I've been evaluating that recently, so we'll see," Ellison said. "I need to put 100 percent of my time, energy and resources into the race and my office, so it is something I am considering."

The comments come after Susan Ellingstad, who was hired by Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party to probe allegations of domestic abuse, determined that she could not substantiate the claim because Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, refused to surrender video content of the alleged abuse.

Monahan accused Ellison of dragging her by her feet off a bed as he yelled at her, back in 2016. She announced in September that she would not disclose the video because she said it was traumatizing and humiliating, among other things.

"An allegation standing alone is not necessarily sufficient to conclude that conduct occurred, particularly where the accusing party declines to produce supporting evidence that she herself asserts exists," Ellingstad wrote in the report. "She has thus repeatedly placed the existence of the video front and center to her allegations, but then has refused to disclose it."

Ellison has rejected the allegations.
