IG Releases Report on YFT and Child Abuse Cover Up

The Inspector General of Yonkers, Brendan J. McGrath completed the investigative report of the Yonkers Federation of Teachers in regards to reporters who posed as teachers in YFT offices and videotaped advice on how to cover up alleged child abuse. The report says that Union President, Patricia Puleo, and Executive Vice President, Paul Diamond schemed to “cover-up criminal acts and to perpetrate a fraud upon the taxpayers of the City of Yonkers.” According to the report, both Puleo and Diamond refused to cooperate with McGrath’s investigation and the report ultimately recommends that their “employment with the Yonkers Public School District be terminated.” In response the YFT issued a statement saying the report was “hastily produced in the middle of difficult contract negotiations.”
