UNIONDALE - ? There is new fallout this morning in the failed plans to build a new Nassau Coliseum.

The county legislature?s Democratic leader is slamming Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano over Monday?s special election.

Diane Yatauro says Mangano should not have spent $2 million on the vote and should have used the money to save more than 100 union jobs that were cut earlier this year. Meanwhile, Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray tells Newsday that new ?flexible? zone rules should make it easier for developers to build on the Uniondale site.
