LI mansion raffle comes under fire
Some Long Islanders are questioning the legitimacy of a raffle ticket they bought to win a mansion in Massapequa after the raffle date has been moved several times.
The raffle drawing that was set for December 2009 was pushed to March 2010 and has now been pushed to July.
The owner of the mansion, John Luongo, says he's delaying the raffle because not enough tickets have been sold.
The chairman of the New York Racing and Wagering Committee says only not-for-profits can raise money by raffles. He says it is illegal to raffle off real estate in New York.
The district attorney's office is opening an investigation into the raffle.
