Riga Dems want GOP fundraiser investigated

Town of Riga Democrats have called for an investigation into fundraising at a dinner in September hosted by the Riga Republican Committee.

A raffle was held that Democrats allege violates New York General Municipal Law. Tickets sold for $20, with participants each competing for one of six prizes. According to records provided by the state Board of Elections, receipts totaled approximately $6,000.

The Riga Democrats also demanded that the Riga Republican Committee either refund the illegal ticket sales or donate the entire proceeds to a local charity.
