Singh takes stand for 5th day in Mangano retrial

CENTRAL ISLIP -

Disgraced restaurateur Harendra Singh returned to the stand for a fifth day Thursday in the federal corruption retrial of former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife Linda.

Singh testified about a wiretapped call, in which he told his former attorney that Linda Mangano should tell the truth about her job. Newsday reports that Singh testified he was keeping the truth about her alleged no-show job from his attorney.

Prosecutors say that job is one of many perks Singh gave to Ed Mangano in exchange for county contracts.

The Manganos have denied any wrongdoing. Their first trial ended in a hung jury.
