NEW YORK (TIP) — Hit by another stunning scandal Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano has become embroiled in a “sexting” scandal, according to a report by CBS claiming he apparently sent “very lurid’’ messages to another woman.

The X-rated messages were allegedly sent to a woman who works as a public relations executive and lives in Suffolk County.

“Common sense dictates that if they’re having a conversation about an intimate moment in one of their vehicles where only they two would know about and they continue having that conversation as if the occurrence really happened, then that doesn’t seem to me like it’s an act of hacking or spoofing,” Former FBI Agent and Security Expert Manny Gomez said.

Mangano says his phone was recently hacked and X-rated messages were apparently sent from his number, but he says they did not come from him.

Mangano, interviewed by CBS 2 reporter Marcia Kramer, denied on air that he’d sent the sexts, insisting, “I am a victim here. I am being hacked. “This is a hack job, or a hoax. I will not stand for it,’’ he said, vowing to report the alleged hack to police.

“I don’t deny that’s my phone number, but it could be hacked, it’s hoaxed — it is hacked,” Mangano said.

There is one message purporting to be from an “Ed M” that begins with the words, “I’d lay you down.” as per CBS2 which censored the rest of the message for being too x-rated.

Another text claims to be from “Ed Mangano” and is followed by three cat emojis with hearts for eyes. It’s unusual because it had a back and forth conversation with a woman.

The reported conversation appears as the following: (as reported by CBS2)

“I really just want you next to me, nothing else. Just that.”

“I miss being alone with you.”

“I wanted to see you,” replies the woman

“Sorry I’m tired.”

“Tomorrow?” she asked.

“I will let you know,” the mystery texter answers.

“I want you to (blank) my brains out even if it’s in my car again,” she said.

“Sorry left early. Something came up.”

And there is yet another text from Mangano’s number that begins, “I meant I hope you never stop loving me. If you woke up one day and didn’t love me anymore, my world would end… I’d go crazy not having you.”

“This is so disgusting, this allegation is outrageous and disgusting and hurtful and it did not come from me. These words did not come from me. It was not done on my phone. It could only be done by a hacker. Period. I am a victim here. That is the truth and now this will be turned over to the police,” Mangano told Kramer.

Former FBI Agent and Security Expert Manny Gomez said that technology exists to hack an account. Gomez did raise questions regarding the texts which include a back and forth conversation.

“Common sense dictates that if they’re having a conversation about an intimate moment in one of their vehicles where only they two would know about and they continue having that conversation as if the occurrence really happened, then that doesn’t seem to me like it’s an act of hacking or spoofing,” Former FBI Agent and Security Expert Manny Gomez said.

“Bold face lie. It has never, ever, occurred. I can’t be more clearer on this issue. Never, ever has occurred,”  Mangano said.

The situation was complicated by the fact that a tweet of one of the texts reportedly turned up briefly on the Twitter page of one of the women.

“My fear was abandonment. His fear was exposure. This is how we settle,” the tweet read.

A spokesman for Mangano said the investigation is “active” and that the police electronics squad is trying to identify who used the county executive’s phone number to send out the texts to various women.
