RNC's McDaniel Wants DNC to Address Ellison-Farrakhan Ties

RNC's McDaniel Wants DNC to Address Ellison-Farrakhan Ties

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel wants to see the Democratic Party speak up about alleged ties between its deputy chair and Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam.

In a Friday press release, McDaniel said it's time DNC chairman Tom Perez addresses deputy chair Keith Ellison's reported links to Farrakhan, a controversial figure who drew more criticism this week after he gave a speech last month with anti-Semitic tones.

"Keith Ellison's long pattern of lies about his ongoing relationship with Louis Farrakhan, who the Anti-Defamation League calls 'America's leading anti-Semite,' has put a stain on the Democrat Party," McDaniel said. "Anti-Semitism has no place in American politics, Tom Perez must address this issue."

Ellison is a Democrat who represents Minnesota in the House and was the first Muslim to be elected to Congress in 2006.

It was reported last month that Ellison has attended at least three meetings where Farrakhan was present during his time in office, including one in Farrakhan's hotel room.

Ellison was a member of the Nation of Islam in the 1990s but has said in recent years he no longer has an affiliation with the group.
