(WASHINGTON FREE BEACON) — Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison cancelled his scheduled appearance the Muslim American Society’s annual conference, where he was slated to deliver the keynote address.
Ellison’s name and picture, which were previously featured prominently on the convention website’s homepage, have been removed completely. He was also removed from the full list of convention speakers.
Ellison was scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the convention’s “appreciation dinner” in Chicago on Tuesday.
The dinner was being billed as an opportunity for conference-goers to “Meet the Celebrity!” and get a “one-on-one encounter” with speakers at the event.
Ellison did not respond to numerous requests for comment on the decision to opt out of the event. A representative at the convention said that it could not comment on the change in schedule.
