Former Nassau County executive + wife convicted of corruption in case involving Indian-American

This case is just the tip of the iceberg.

This kind of bribery by the Indian Mafia goes on much more than any American suspects. Most never get caught.

Finally some of the Indian Mafia + the US politicians they corrupt are being brought to justice.

Let’s hope this scares most other execs + pols taking bribes from the Indian Mafia into stopping.

“On March 8, following a seven-week trial, a federal jury in Central Islip, New York, returned guilty verdicts against former Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano on multiple counts of accepting bribes and kickbacks in exchange for official government action, and for conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to a press release from the Justice Department’s U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.

Linda Mangano, the wife of Edward Mangano, was also convicted of conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice and making false statements to Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents in connection with her employment by Long Island restaurateur Harendra Singh. The conviction was announced by the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Richard P. Donoghue and others, March 8.

Earlier, Singh “eventually pleaded guilty to bribing the two officials, and agreed to testify against them,” The New York Times reported March 8″.
