Julia Salazar, a democratic socialist whose campaign for a seat in New York's state Senate was overshadowed by a series of bizarre revelations about her past, unseated a 16-year incumbent in Thursday's Democratic primary. With 88 percent of precincts reporting, Salazar led state Sen. Martin Dilan by 58 percent to 42 percent. In response to the report, Salazar said she "inadvertently misrepresented" her history. Salazar claimed Kai Hernandez was trying to frame her because the woman erroneously believed Salazar was having an affair with her husband. Dilan was first elected in 2002 and was a member of the state Senate Democratic Conference's leadership.
