The Daily Beast reports:
It’s a question most Americans can answer pretty easily: “How many houses do you own?” But for TV doctor and Senate candidate Mehmet Oz, it’s apparently a tricky one—with qualifiers, an explanation, and an interpretative answer.
At a campaign stop last weekend at the Carbon County Fair in Palmerton, Pennsylvania, a Democratic campaign operative asked Oz how many houses he owns. Oz’s answer? “Legitimately, I own two houses,” he said, according to footage filmed by the operative and obtained by The Daily Beast.
“But one of them we’re building on, the other ones I rent,” Oz added. The problem with that answer is Oz—legitimately—owns far more than two houses.

At the link you’ll find a list Oz’s ten properties, which includes two Manhattan condos, a condo and a mansion in New Jersey, and an oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach.
In addition to the ten that Oz owns, his wife owns a mansion in Maine and a pool house next door one of their New Jersey homes.
Oz is seemingly claiming that the homes he’s renting to others are not “legitimately” his and belong to his tenants.
Exclu: Dr. Oz at a campaign stop last weekend was asked a simple question.
“How many houses do you own?”
His response? — “Legitimately, I own two houses.”
And well, reader, you know where this is going. The number is… not two.
