Report: Massapequa Woman Claims She Had Trysts With Nassau Cop

Married officer accused of carrying on affair while on duty.

A Massapequa woman reportedly carried on an affair with a married Nassau cop, while he was on duty.

Officer Mike Tedesco, 43, was involved with Tara Obenauer, a 42-year-old Wall Street executive, from July until February, according to a report in the New York Post.

The officer allegedly parked his police cruiser in her driveway during their trysts and during dozens of on-duty visits to her home.

"He would be at my house for hours during his shift, hanging out in his uniform on the couch, watching TV with my kids, taking a nap," Obenauer, who is single, but had children from a prior relationship, told the paper.

She also claimed that Tedesco would have other officers cover for his absences, telling her, "Let the...newbies chase these kids from their parties and go to house alarm calls.’’

Tedesco was suspended after one of Obenauer's neighbors became suspicious and told police. A check of the GPS records of his patrol car revealed that he had visited the location at least 57 times, according to the Post.

Obenauer later wrote an apology to Tedesco's wife, who has remained supportive of her husband.

The 17-year veteran is still receiving his pension, the paper reported.

Maybe the Mistress should pay the county for using him in her home as a priviate armed body guard.

Good point, Curly. KADC seems to know an awful lot about this "romance" and never said boo to anyone about Tedesco's slacking off.

This woman was fully aware he was married the entire time and chose to ignore that. The media continuously shows a picture she took of his gun belt on her bed. Why would she have even taken that picture had the15 minutes of fame not always been her intention. In addition her "wall street" company and position is a sham. There is nothing for anyone to be jealous of... she is an aging stripper, that never married, and that currently resides in a house which is in foreclosure and she she rents from the owners for the duration of the foreclosure process. That information is on public record. Her children are the ones suffering the most now and it is due to her own actions. Regardless of how much of a dirt bag Tedesco is...she allowed it , welcomed it and now advertises it.

On another note - I truly don't care what people do in their private lives and on THEIR OWN TIME - that wasn't the case here. This cop, his girlfriends, and the precinct STOLE valuable protection from us. I feel that every town that's covered by the 7th should counter sue for loss of services and theft of services. Nobody can tell me that the other cops in that precinct didn't know what was going on. The 7th is known as an easy ride, time to put the lights out on them. I say kick out the current 7th and let the 1st precinct cops coming in take over.

This Cop should be sued by everybody he had a say on during his career... Just one of those that went the xtra 9 to fk people up... I know ! Every darn wife of every Cop injured or shot sues the world... Even if poor training on their own part is to blame. It's the World We Live In !
