New York Democratic socialist candidate Julia Salazar allegedly was arrested in 2011 on suspicion of fraudulently trying to access the account of the wife of former New York Mets player Keith Hernandez-but it was not loaded.

Salazar hit the national headlines after claiming to be a Colombian immigrants, and grew up in a working class household have been challenged by members of their own family and in the news. Salazar stood her story, as she tries to take a seat in the New York state Senate, guilt, contradictions, misunderstandings or errors made by the campaign staff.

But Tablet, the first to poke holes in your bio, on Thursday reported on a 2011 incident where she was arrested on suspicion of attempted access to the account of Hernandez’s wife, Kai. Recordings, the Tablet show a woman who allegedly tried to Hernandez again and again, access to your UBS account, by saying you had trouble in it. To have the caller seems to have been unsuccessful.

Hernandez, a financial Advisor is Kai Hernandez called, alerted the police and named Salazar as the perpetrator, the witnesses, that Salazar had house-sat you on a number of occasions, — giving her access to financial information.


Charles Weinblatt, the detective assigned to the case, arrested in March 2011 after the interview with her. While he said he had probable cause, he said Salazar was accused, as “a voice, the ID is not enough for the Prosecutor’s office.”

“There was enough evidence to arrest, but the Prosecutor’s office said that there was a likelihood of conviction on a voice ID, I would assume, so the lawsuits were not filed,” he told Tablet.

But Salazar, and a libel filed then suit against Hernandez, challenge had impersonated Salazar to your own bank and hurt your professional and emotional well-being. This complaint was dismissed, but Salazar changed, and claims that Kai Hernandez told the police that Salazar was having an affair with her husband.

Tablet reports that the suit dragged on for years, until it was completed in March 2017, when Hernandez-who had been in the fight against cancer — could not afford to fight. Your insurance dealt with, allegedly, a payment to Salazar.

Hernandez’s attorney told the Tablet “, if Kai still had that sick, we could have tried this case, and in this case, I really believe that, but it comes for the cost of their health, and their situation was such that, if [the insurance company] are gonna pay you your money, let you pay your money.” She added, “I really believe, [Salazar] is the voice on this call.”

But in a statement to The Daily Mail, Salazar’s lawyer, Adam pike said: “Kai Hernandez, bizarre, and fraudulent attempts, they were recognized to defame and harass Julia as baseless by the authority, which refused to press charges, and this issue was resolved with a monetary settlement in Julia’s favor.”

The Democratic primary is Sept. 13.
