The candidate running against Rep. Keith Ellison for Minnesota attorney general said Saturday on Fox & Friends that the "hypocrisy" surrounding the assault accusations against Ellison are "astounding."

Political activist Karen Monahan has alleged that Ellison physically and emotionally abused her during their long-term relationship.

Doug Wardlow (R) said Saturday that there's political hypocrisy surrounding the accusations against Ellison, while many Democrats quickly jumped at the sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"It's a terrible double standard," Wardlow said.

Monahan’s son wrote about the alleged incident involving his mother in a Facebook post, saying that Ellison dragged his mother off a bed by her feet while screaming profanities at her.

Ellison also serves as the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee.

"What should happen is there should be a full hearing of Ms. Monahan and her story," Wardlow said.

Ellison denied the allegations by Monahan on Friday during a debate against Wardlow, also refuting allegations made by another woman, Amy Alexander.

"The hypocrisy is astounding. ... It's entirely political," Wardlow said. "[Ellison's] pledge to use the office of attorney general to basically wage war against President Trump, to obstruct President Trump's agenda, that's completely inappropriate."
