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. The
28-year-old reported to the state’s Joint Commission on Public
Ethics in a signed, May 15 financial disclosure that she received
$18,000 in 2018 from her deceased father, Luis H. Salazar’s, trust.
In the handwritten disclosure, she appeared to value the fund at $10
million, classifying the cash stash as “Category DDDDD” — a
code used in campaign paperwork to signify amounts of “$10 million
or more.”
