New York State Senator Julia Salazar distances herself from online posts by two of her staffers that appeared to praise or endorse Hamas' October 7 attack on Israel. Salazar did not indicate that she would reprimand either of them and condemned reporting on the posts as a 'cynical hit piece.' Salazar's chief of staff liked a post that said, 'The stuff happening in Palestine really cheers me up.' Salazar addressed the issue, stating that her staffer posted the comments to her personal, locked social media account without her knowledge. Salazar is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and has called for a ceasefire, criticized Israeli strikes on Gaza, condemned the Hamas attack, and demanded the release of hostages held by Hamas.
