Potential jurors in a video blackmail case involving an Atlantic City councilman and his political rivals are being asked if they are willing to watch a sex tape as part of the evidence. Ronald Callaway, his brother David, and Floyd Tally are charged with luring Councilman Eugene Robinson to a motel, secretly taping him having sex with a prostitute and trying to blackmail him.

Jury selection began Tuesday and is expected to last two days.

The Callaways' brother, former Council President Craig Callaway, pleaded guilty to masterminding the scheme before beginning an unrelated prison term for bribery.

Robinson, a Baptist minister, has said the sex was consensual and the money he gave the woman was to buy sodas.
