Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), who is running for Minnesota attorney general and is the DNC deputy chairman, is asking the House Ethics Committee to investigate the domestic abuse allegations his ex-girlfriend made about him in August, BuzzFeed News' Lissandra Villa reports.

What's next: Ellison told Villa that he is "innocent and eager to see this entire matter resolved." He is leaving Congress in January whether he wins his AG race or not.
