UFT President Mike Mulgrew was caught in flagrante delicto with a guidance counselor at William Grady HS, where he taught before becoming the unions boss, a bombshell lawsuit charges.
The accusation that Mulgrew was seen having sex with a co-worker in a woodshop at the vocational school, and that it was hushed up, comes in a rambling 73-page suit filed in Brooklyn federal court last week by Andrew Ostrowsky, a math teacher at Frank Sinatra HS of the Arts in Manhattan.
Ostrowsky, 35, names Mayor Bloomberg, Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott, Mulgrew and the UFT, claiming the teachers union conspired with school officials to quash the scandal. It accuses the city of using the favor to extort labor concessions.
The suit claims that a custodian found Mulgrew and Emma Camacho-Mendez together at the Brooklyn school, and that the custodian and principal were sworn to secrecy and denial.
It charges the pair were shielded by then-UFT President Randi Weingarten to avoid embarrassment to the union leadership.
Mulgrew was embroiled in a meretricious scandal for which anyone else would have been fired, ending his career as an educator, the suit claims.
Mulgrews spokesman, Dick Riley, gave a curt response: This lawsuit is a catalog of absurd, false charges which we expect the court to dismiss.
Camacho-Mendez, now a UFT official, said, I have no comment on that. Its the first Ive heard of such an allegation. I have nothing to say to you.
Everyone has only hearsay knowledge, but almost everyone in the school talked about it, the suit says.
Several former staffers at Grady HS have told The Post they believed Mulgrew and Camacho-Mendez, who is married, were romantically involved, and there were rumors of an encounter on a drafting table at the time.

The only difference between democrats and barnyard animals is they don’t sh*t where they stand. Seriously.
You are so correct. I have been comparing them to barnyard animals for some time. Democrats want the morals of this country to be equivalent to barnyard animals. Actually, they want the morals of this country to be worse than barnyard animals - barnyard animals know the difference between male and female. Barnyard animals do not jump on each other and commit murder for no reason.
You had better watch out for those T-squares.

Being democrats I was shocked to learn the “perps”
were of the opposite sex!!!
Yes, it’s gotten to where you feel relieved that its “just” a typical boy-girl incident. :)
People paid with hard-earned taxpayer dollars screwing on a drafting table that was paid for with hard-earned taxpayer dollars in a building that was built with hard-earned taxpayer dollars. The taxpayers are the ones getting screwed and they don’t even get flowers the next morning.
In 449 the Roman decemvir Appius Claudius tried to claim a Roman girl named Verginia as his slave so that she would have to be his concubine. The girl was freeborn and already promised in marriage to someone else. Her father Verginius denounced Appius Claudius in the Forum: "It was to Icilius, not you, Appius, that I promised my daughter. I raised her to be married, not debauched. Animals and wild beasts fornicate indiscriminately. Is this what you want?" (Livy 3.47)
The pagan Romans had higher standards than New York union officials. According to Livy, Verginius killed his own daughter as a last resort to protect her chastity.
