New York State Senator Julia Salazar is an Ocasio Cortez crony. But Salazar is so off the wall that she makes AOC look like FDR.
Julia Salazar, the Democratic Socialist candidate running for New York state Senate, was arrested in 2011 on allegations of fraudulently attempting to access the bank account of Kai Hernandez, a family friend and then-wife of baseball star Keith Hernandez.
None of it mattered. Cortez and the DSA stood behind Salazar. And the creepy DSA troll is now a New York State Senator.
But the crazy just doesn’t stop.
Julia Salazar — the Brooklyn state senator who has been called out for falsely painting herself as a working-class immigrant — was living off a trust fund while mounting her socialist-themed campaign, new campaign finance disclosures reveal.
The fact-challenged freshman lawmaker filed papers saying the trust was worth an eye-popping $10 million — although she now claims the figure was an error and the family trust she dipped into actually holds around $400,000.
“Wait, what,” is the usual reaction to any Julia Salazar story.
It’s okay. She’s still a working class Jewish immigrant, despite being neither working class nor an immigrant, nor Jewish. But she is DSA.
