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.

  CHRIS ABRUZZO   , Gov. Corbett 's appointed secretary of the state Department of Environmental Protection, says he does not remember all that porn. But Abruzzo took "full responsibility" yesterday for the explicit emails recovered from his archived inbox from when he was chief of staff to Corbett, who was then state attorney general. Abruzzo and one of his top DEP staffers resigned, as Attorney General Kathleen Kane released to reporters those emails in a 1,200-page document dump that included the archived inboxes of two other former top Corbett deputies.

A FEW WORDS come to mind while reflecting on the state porn scandal, which erupted recently when Attorney General Kathleen Kane exposed a ring of state officials exchanging pornographic emails via state computers: Stupid . Maybe "stupid" is not quite right, since these are all relatively high-ranking people, most of whom served under Tom Corbett in the Attorney General's Office. Maybe "arrogant and contemptuous" is better. But "stupid" does cover the notion of anyone working in the 21st century who doesn't understand - or remember - that workplace computers are not private and should not be used for questionable personal reasons.

THE STATE'S code of judicial conduct is an exhaustive document that outlines strict codes of behavior and conduct for judges. It's a warning to judges that the standards for conduct are far higher than what applies for the Average Joe. And the code outlines for the Average Joe the kind of impeccable conduct we can expect from judges. Nowhere does it say, "If you're caught having sent hundreds of pornographic emails, make sure you apologize . . . but not too profusely. In fact, try to suggest that you're being victimized.

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.

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 - 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.

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.

HARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court suspended Justice Seamus P. McCaffery on Monday amid allegations that he sent pornographic e-mails and threatened to entangle a fellow justice in the widening scandal after vowing not to go "down alone. " In a sharply worded order, four of the seven justices, citing an "immediate need" to protect the integrity of the state's courts, suspended McCaffery with pay on "an interim basis" from his $200,205-a-year job. The court also ordered the state's Judicial Conduct Board to determine within 30 days if there is probable cause to file formal misconduct charges against the justice.

A skirmish between two rival Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices over pornographic e-mails erupted Friday into a full-court brawl, with a third justice stopping just short of lobbing blackmail accusations, and other colleagues fretting that the fighting had begun to erode the public's confidence in the bench. Responding to reports that he had received racist and pornographic content on a private e-mail account, Justice J. Michael Eakin said he never viewed those messages and accused another colleague caught up in the scandal, Justice Seamus P. McCaffery, of threatening to leak them to the media.

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania's Judicial Conduct Board will investigate a complaint that Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery may have violated ethics rules if he sent sexually explicit e-mails from his personal account to a state employee, according to a letter from the board. In the Tuesday letter, the board agreed to "conduct an inquiry into the matters" raised in a complaint filed last week by Harrisburg activist Gene Stilp. In his Oct. 2 complaint, Stilp cited news accounts that McCaffery in 2008 and 2009 sent e-mails containing pornographic content to an agent in the state Attorney General's Office.

GOV. CORBETT is standing by one state law-enforcement official caught up in a porn scandal, but has asked another to resign. Corbett says information released this week by state Attorney General Kathleen Kane does not show that State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan opened any of the more than 300 explicit emails he received while working as a top deputy to Corbett when the governor served as attorney general. Noonan has told the governor he did not look at the files, a Corbett spokeswoman said.
