Hernandez loses Sunland Park race


SUNLAND PARK, N.M. (KRQE) – Remember Gerardo Hernandez?

He was caught on tape getting a lap dance from a stripper in his campaign office while running for mayor of Sunland Park

He lost that race after the video surfaced.

Hernandez ran for Municipal Judge yesterday in Sunland Park and you won’t believe who he lost to this time, Lizette Salinas.

If that last name sounds familiar it’s because she’s the sister of Daniel Salinas.

Of course Daniel Salinas was the mayoral candidate who beat Hernandez two years ago but was banned from taking office because he’s accused of blackmailing Hernandez by setting up the lap dance and getting the stripper to secretly record it.

Daniel Salinas is still awaiting trial on a laundry list of corruption and extortion charges.
