The New York Post’s police bureau chief was axed after admitting he had an affair with a prostitute who is the star witness in a federal corruption probe while he was covering the high-profile case.

Shawn Cohen reportedly, was fired Thursday without public explanation by the publication’s editors.

Cohen wrote a June 2016 front-page story featuring 29-year-old Grecko, who recounted in lurid detail a salacious flight in which she posed as a flight attendant and sexually serviced several police brass from the NYPD.

Cohen Friday, allegedly released a brief statement admitting to the affair and expressing regret.

“Following the publication of a news article I wrote about a witness in an investigation, we had a brief personal relationship. As a journalist, I certainly appreciate how this looks given her past profession and the fact I’d written about her, but the reality is quite innocent. That said, I should have exercised better judgment because of the particular circumstances involved here and because I continued to cover related topics.”

Grecko is expected to testify at the upcoming trial of NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant and his friend, Brooklyn businessman Jeremy Reichberg.
The men have both have denied wrongdoing and aggressively fought the charges in a trial set to begin later this month.

In June, the Post ran a front-page article featuring Grecko recounting a graphic play-by-play of the February 2013 flight to a Superbowl held in Las Vegas, during which she provided sexual favors to some members of the NYPD.

After that story, Cohen allegedly continued to cover the case, even as he indulged in a relationship with thwe star witness in the federal probe. At least three more stories witten by Cohen on the subject ran after the Grecko lead story.

Cohen’s Twitter page had disappeared by Friday morning.

Joining the pricey prostitute on the flight with Grant was the subsequently fired Detective Michael Milici.

Michael Harrington 1.jpgFormer Deputy chief, Michael Harrington,already  plead guilty to a reduced charge  in the  corruption scandal that rocked the NYPD

Former NYPD deputy chief Michael Harrington, in March plead guilty to a reduced charge  in the  series of high profile corruption scandals, that rocked the department with allegations of cops accepting bribes that included free romps with hookers.
Harrington, 52, struck the plea bargain ahead of a scheduled April 30 trial in Manhattan federal court on four counts of conspiracy, fraud and bribery. He had been indicted in July on allegations that he took payoffs including thousands of dollars in work for a security firm he unofficially helped manage, hotel accommodations on a family trip to Chicago, restaurant meals, tickets to sporting events and a video-game system for his kids.
In exchange, he was allegedly “on call” to provide official NYPD assistance to Rechnitz and co-defendant Jeremy Reichberg. Harrington instead pled guilty to illegally diverting police resources, without receiving payment, by skirting protocol to grant favors to Reichberg and other members of the Jewish community.

Those favors included having an NYPD helicopter fly over a party Reichberg hosted on a boat in the East River and letting Reichberg and others ride on a Harbor Unit boat.
Reichberg and former NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant face trial in a bribery scheme that includes an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas in 2013 during which Grant and others allegedly enjoyed the “services” of an escort named Gabi Grecko.
Three other former NYPD brass, Paul Dean, Robert Espinel and Gaetano “Guy” Valastro, await trial in an unrelated scheme in which they allegedly approved gun-license applications in exchange for bribes.
Dean and Espinel allegedly “accepted food, alcohol, parties, dancers, and prostitutes,” according to the feds
