WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington City Officials say a Democratic organization misrepresented itself on a city application.

Tuesday, the local chapter of "Organizing for America" used space at the Martin Luther King Center in Wilmington to make calls in support of health care reform.

According to city officials, the organization said on its application that they would be using the space for a community health fair.

The City Manager's Office is creating a new policy to allow the city to evict organizations that misrepresent themselves on applications for use of city facilities.
