with Ellison, it’s criminals over children

The top cop, the state attorney general, needs to protect the most vulnerable – our children – in society. This should be basic – an easy one – not so for Keith Ellison.

Every time it matters, Keith Ellison sides with criminals over children. In Congress, Ellison passionately OPPOSED a common-sense bill to prevent convicted sex offenders from working and teaching in schools.

  • On October 22, 2013, H.R. 2083, The Protecting Students From Sexual And Violent Predators Act, passed the U.S. House of Representatives by voice vote.

Deeply troubling, but this was not the first time Ellison advocated FOR sexual predators. In April 2004, when Ellison was in the Minnesota House, he OPPOSED a bill that would have imposed tougher sentences on violent sex offenders.

Keith Ellison is a dangerous choice for Minnesotans. He cannot be trusted to keep communities safe.
