CENTRAL ISLIP — Jury selection began Monday morning for the trial of former Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto and former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife, Linda. And after a long day where initially hundreds were being questioned for the trial, finally 12 jurors and six alternates were selected.

The Maganos and Venditto face federal corruption charges and pleaded not guilty to an alleged bribery scheme. Prosecutors say restauranteur Harendra Singh provided kick-backs in exchange for loans for his business and Nassau County contracts.
