(National Sentinel) Legally Deficient: Ace investigative reporter Laura Loomer has discovered that accused sexual abuser Rep. Keith Ellison, who just became the Democratic nominee for the Minnesota attorney general’s office, no longer has a license to practice law.
As reported by Big League Politics, Ellison has pledged in campaign ads to be his state’s number one “lawyer” who will fight for them in court.
“As your next attorney general, I will be a people’s lawyer who will hold those in power accountable when they step on your rights — whether that’s Monsanto telling you how to raise your crops, Navient cheating student loan borrowers out of more money, or the federal government infringing upon health care, a woman’s right to choose, or the human and civil rights of all,” Ellison wrote in The Minneapolis Star Tribune, the state’s main newspaper.
“This is work I have been doing my whole life, from 16 years as a civil rights lawyer to more than a decade legislating on behalf of Minnesota consumers, workers and families,” Ellison continued.
But Loomer found that Ellison doesn’t have an active law license.
When she searched online for Ellison’s license this is what she found, as reported by Big League Politics:
The site noted further:
He announced that he would be running for Minnesota Attorney General in early June, however, there’s just one problem. Ellison as of date does not have an active attorney’s license, making him ineligible to practice law in the state of Minnesota.
In Minnesota, it is not required that the state Attorney General have an active law license, but one would expect those running to become the leading voice of law within the state, the highest appointed attorney in the state to have an active attorney’s license.
Loomer pointed out the discrepancy on Twitter.
“How come the
#Minnesota media & MSM are ignoring the fact that the Deputy Chair of the DNC who is running to become the most powerful attorney in the state of Minnesota, has an INACTIVE attorney’s license?” she wrote. “How does that work?”
She added: “[Keith Ellison] told the [Star Tribune] that he’s going to fight for all Minnesotans as ‘the people’s lawyer,’” she said. “How is he going to do that? He has an INACTIVE ATTORNEY’S LICENSE as I exclusively reported at [Big League Politics] yesterday.”
Another day, another Democrat trying to fool the public.
