Daily Caller: VIDEO: DNC Chair Tom Perez Won’t Say If He Believes Ellison’s Accuser

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez on Thursday refused to say whether he believed liberal Sierra Club activist Karen Monahan, who has accused Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison of physically and emotionally abusing her.

Ellison, the deputy chair of the DNC, has denied Monahan’s allegations but the committee has so far declined to say whether it believes Ellison or his accuser.

A tracker for Republican opposition research group America Rising on Thursday managed to catch Perez at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, where the DNC is holding its summer meeting.

“Mr. Perez, do you believe the allegations against Keith Ellison? Mr. Perez? … Why haven’t you asked Keith Ellison to step down while the review is being conducted? Mr. Perez?” video obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation shows the tracker asking.

“These are pretty serious things that deserve serious answers,” the tracker added. Perez passed on all of the questions.
