IF YOU EVER find yourself missing the old-school experience of flipping through a porn mag, head up to the fourth floor of City Hall and grab hold of Frank Fina's binder full of nude women. The state Supreme Court yesterday unsealed hundreds of pages of records connected to the looming criminal trial of state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, including pornographic emails that were sent and received by Fina when he was a state prosecutor. Kane has long contended that the smutty images - collected in a nearly 400-page binder in the Supreme Court's Prothonotary Office - are crucial to understanding why she's in a legal bind.

LOS ANGELES - Promoters of Michael Jackson's planned 2009 comeback described in emails how they feared for the megastar's stability, saying he was out of shape and consumed with self-doubt. The Los Angeles Times obtained some 250 pages of messages, most between executives at Anschutz Entertainment Group, which was financing the ill-fated "This Is It" concerts set for London. Some of the emails indicated that executives were concerned that Jackson's planned 50-show stand at AEG's 02 Arena would be an expensive bust.

THE FUN WE'RE all having reading the embarrassing emails of Hollywood big shots is tempered by the fact that we really shouldn't be seeing them at all. The hacked Sony emails arise (very probably) from an attack by a foreign government. It's (very probably) a form a terrorism, it's illegal and death threats have been made, and that's unacceptable. Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin said as much recently when he labeled as "morally treasonous" and "spectacularly dishonorable" anyone who publishes the emails.

TAMPA, FLA. - Former CIA director David Petraeus was shocked to learn last summer that his mistress was suspected of sending threatening emails warning another woman to stay away from him, former staff members and friends told the Associated Press on Monday. Petraeus told these associates that his relationship with the second woman, Tampa socialite and former Philadelphian Jill Kelley, was platonic, although his biographer-turned-lover, Paula Broadwell apparently, saw her as a romantic rival.

HARRISBURG - Some of Gov. Corbett 's top deputies seemed to have been quite taken, while he was the state attorney general, with graphic images of unusual objects inserted into women's vaginas. Explicit emails put on display for reporters yesterday by Attorney General Kathleen Kane - in perhaps the strangest political peep show in history - included videos of women masturbating by inserting a bowling pin and a lit cigar. In another video, a man who looks like a race-car driver shakes a bottle of champagne, uncorks it and then inserts the spouting mouth of the bottle into a woman's vagina while others watch.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane has said her legal problems stem from an attempt by enemies to block her from exposing their exchange of pornographic emails on state computers. But newly unsealed documents show that Kane was told nearly nine months ago by the state's highest court that she was not restricted from publicly releasing information about the messages. On Tuesday, the state Supreme Court unsealed two orders, both from last December, in which the justices ruled that Kane was not barred from "appropriate" disclosure of the pornographic images.

    HARRISBURG - State Attorney General Kathleen Kane will not make public e-mails of current and former state employees that purportedly contain pornographic images, jokes, cartoons, and other private messages, her office said Tuesday. Responding to an Inquirer request for the emails under the state's Right-to-Know law, the office said it had determined the material does not fall under the law's definition of a public record. But the denial also included a disclosure that the office had undertaken an "ongoing internal investigation" regarding those emails and that they may be relevant "to investigations of violations of agency policy and the appropriate use of agency equipment.

THE FBI investigation that led to the abrupt resignation of David H. Petraeus as CIA director was triggered by a 37-year-old Tampa woman who grew up in Philadelphia. Jill Kelley, married to a surgeon and mother of three young daughters, complained several months ago that she had received harassing emails from a woman who turned out to be Paula Broadwell, Petraeus' biographer. Born Jill Khawam to a locally prominent Lebanese-American family, past articles and records show that she grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and lived in the area until her mid-20s.

VINCE FUMO can't help himself. He's addicted: to his own voice, to power, to life inside his own little world. Those emails from prison that are included in a government memo confirm it. It's the only way to explain them. Emails from April 20 to Oct. 13, that when printed fill 12,068 pages, are part of the feds' case for resentencing The Vince. He's serving 55 months. The feds want at least 15 years for his 137-count conviction for fraud, tax evasion and obstruction.

As Attorney General Kathleen Kane plotted to leak secret grand jury information and instructed aides to spy on her employees' emails, prosecutors said, she used personal email accounts to conduct business. Revelations about Kane's use of personal emails led Montgomery County prosecutors to serve search warrants for her Yahoo and AOL email accounts as they built a criminal case against her. On Monday, Kane was held for trial on charges of leaking confidential information to embarrass a critic and then lying about it under oath.

KATHLEEN KANE may have broken the law when she leaked details from a grand jury, and she found out this week that she will stand trial for that. Gallons of ink have been spilled on the investigation and the beleaguered attorney general's response, in which she has tried to make a porn email scandal in the Attorney General's Office the center of what she claims is a manufactured case against her. Given her awkward handling of the case, the porn...

THE PRELIMINARY hearing for state Attorney General Kathleen Kane was nearly overshadowed yesterday by a single sentence about pornography. This is Pennsylvania, after all. Montgomery County Magisterial District Judge Cathleen Kelly Rebar ordered Kane to be held for trial on charges of perjury, criminal conspiracy and obstruction of justice, fallout from a bizarre scandal that has threatened to topple the attorney general's career. Kane is accused of orchestrating the leak information about a dormant 2009 grand jury investigation into J. Whyatt Mondesire, the then-head of the Philadelphia NAACP, to the Daily News . A story about the case appeared in the paper last June, a few months after the Inquirer wrote about Kane's decision to not prosecute a handful of local lawmakers who were caught accepting bribes from a lobbyist as part of an undercover sting.

Question: I just found out my boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend have been emailing every so often, prompted by my boyfriend. I told him it made me uncomfortable, and he's stopping. So why do I feel slimy? Answer: Because the emailing was either innocent, and you seized control for no other reason than your own insecurity - or it wasn't innocent, and your crackdown doesn't change the fact that they were emotionally entwined. So, you intervened and have nothing - no truth, no assurances - to show for it. That could make one feel slimy.

A member of Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane's security detail, charged with illegally spying on others' email, remains on the job despite a policy requiring any staffer charged with a work-related crime to be suspended without pay. Patrick Reese, 48, a Kane confidant and her sometime driver, has pleaded not guilty to a contempt-of-court charge. Prosecutors say that at Kane's behest, he spied on the electronic communications of colleagues and others involved in a grand jury investigation of his boss.

A day after Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane called on a Montgomery County judge to authorize her to release emails from the so-called Porngate scandal, the judge said he would not do so because Kane had not filed a formal request with the court. The emails, Judge William R. Carpenter said, have nothing to do with the criminal case against Kane, the first woman and Democrat to be elected attorney general in Pennsylvania. Carpenter, a Republican who launched the grand jury investigation that led to the charges against Kane, defended his supervision of the panel and the work of the grand jurors.

HARRISBURG - Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane proclaimed her innocence on criminal charges Wednesday, and blamed her legal troubles on enemies trying to conceal their involvement in emails laced with "pornography, racial insensitivity, and religious bigotry. " Kane, charged with leaking confidential grand jury information and lying about it under oath, said she would not step down as the state's highest-ranking law enforcement official, despite calls to do so from Gov. Wolf, a Democrat like herself, and other officials.

Feeling under attack from reporters and political enemies she believed were out to end her career, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane saw the conflict in stark terms. "This is war," she declared in an e-mail to an adviser in March 2014. Nine days later, prosecutors said, she deployed an office spy. Patrick Reese, her driver and the chief of her personal security detail, set in motion a cloak-and-dagger campaign that prosecutors said was designed to expose her enemies and snoop on state authorities as they built a criminal case against her. Now he faces criminal charges alongside her. Reese, a former police chief of Dunmore, a tiny borough outside Scranton, was described by prosecutors as one of Kane's "closest confidants" - a man Kane once said she trusted with her life.
