Venditto, Genova viewed FBI probe as 'rite of passage'

Former Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto and his deputy Leonard Genova seemed to view being investigated by federal authorities as a "rite of passage" and "not a big deal," former Deputy Town Attorney Frederick Mei testified Tuesday at Venditto's federal corruption trial. Mei pleaded guilty to taking bribes from restaurateur Harendra Singh, who has testified that he bribed Venditto and former Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, who is also on trial. Newsday's Joye Brown was present at the trial on Tuesday, and appeared on News 12 to provide some analysis. (Credit: News 12 Long Island)
