Participants in a fun run organized by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Queens were unaware their registration fee was going towards her campaign
Runners who took part in an event organised by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t know they were donating to her campaign.
The New York Democrat, 29, held a 5k run in Queens on Saturday that she described as ‘a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.’
But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign funds
Some participants felt told the New York Post they were felt they were taken in by the misleading advertising.
‘The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan,’ said one supporter who would not give his name. ‘If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.’
