Ellison won’t attend inauguration

Congressman Keith Ellison says he will stand with Rep. John Lewis of Alabama and not attend the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Allison Sherry of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Ellison made the announcement on Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday and cited that he was standing with Rep. John Lewis in his decision — an African-American civil rights icon who was beaten and jailed in the 1960s fighting for civil rights.

The other ten Minnesota Congressional delegation members – three Republicans and seven Democrats – confirmed plans to attend the inauguration, including both Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken.
