WESTBURY - A day after voters cast their ballots, it's still unclear which party is in control of the Nassau Legislature, and election officials say the results may depend on absentee ballots and recounts.Nassau Republicans insist they're still in control while Democrats say it's too close to call.Democrats definitely gained one seat last night, but needed two for a majority. A handful of votes are separating the candidates in two districts: Democrat Eva Pearson and Republican incumbent Joseph Belesi in the 14th District, and the GOP?s Robert Germino, Jr. and Democrat Delia DeRiggi-Whitton in the 18th District. County Executive Ed Mangano (R-Nassau) was quick to claim victory for his party. He says the results are proof that residents like the direction he's taking the county.
