FBI agent testifies Singh gave Mangano testosterone injections
A restaurant owner regularly administered testosterone injections to the former Nassau County executive, an FBI agent testified Monday in the Nassau corruption trial.
The testimony came as Week 9 got underway Monday in the trial of ex-Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto, ex-Nassau Executive Ed Mangano and his wife, Linda.

The FBI special agent testified that restaurateur Harendra Singh regularly visited the Manganos' Bethpage home to administer testosterone shots to the now-former executive.
During cross-examination, the agent was asked if she knew Mangano was "diagnosed with a testosterone deficiency." She answered, "No."
Prosecutors allege that Singh, the government's star witness in the case, bribed Mangano and Venditto with perks, gifts and favors in exchange for county contracts and town-backed loans.
