Some New York lawmakers are joining Cardinal Timothy Dolan in speaking out against the scalping of tickets to see Pope Francis.
About 80,000 tickets were given out through a city-sponsored lottery system for the pontiff's procession through Central Park later this month.
Some of those tickets were then being sold for thousands of dollars on eBay and Craigslist.
Sen. Chuck Schumer has commended eBay's decision to ban the sale of pope tickets.
