Prosecutors are likening former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano to a mayor on the payroll of the mob.
In new court papers, prosecutors say Mangano was essentially on a retainer from restaurateur Harendra Singh.
It's the prosecution's latest response to a motion made by Mangano's defense team to have his conviction thrown out based on a court of appeals decision, dealing with statute of limitations.
Mangano's attorney, Kevin Keating, had previously argued Mangano was accused of being bribed by Singh to get him $20 million in indirect loan guarantees from the Town of Oyster Bay. He says the deal was worked out in 2010, adding the former county executive wasn't charged until after the five-year statute had run out and argued Mangano did nothing criminal after 2010.
In the papers, however, prosecutors show amendments were made to the loan in 2011 and 2012.
At the end of the 60-page document, prosecutors closed by saying, "the government respectfully submits that the court should deny the defendant's motions in their entirety."
Mangano and his wife Linda are currently trying to have their convictions dismissed.
Sentencing in the corruption-related case has been delayed due to the pandemic.
