A mistrial has been declared in the federal corruption trial of former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife Linda.

The jury foreman sent a note to Judge Joan Azrack, saying he could no longer carry out his duties as a juror, and asked to be excused.

Soon after, Azrack declared a mistrial.

A relieved Ed Mangano says he’s not thinking about a possible retrial...yet.

“Words can’t describe the emotional hurt and pain and suffering that a trial puts on one and one’s family and one’s loved ones,” Ed Mangano said.

The cross-examination of the star prosecution witness in the federal corruption trial of former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, his wife Linda, and former Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto continued on Tuesday.

Restaurant owner Harendra Singh was cross-examined by Linda Mangano’s attorney. Linda Magano is charged with accepting a no-show job that paid $400,000 dollars at one of Singh’s restaurants.

However, Singh admitted on the stand that he did not know how much work she did when presented with e-mails from his restaurant manager.
