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.

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.

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.

The release of scores of kinky emails written by a powerful New Jersey Democrat to a lobbyist has sparked an investigation by prosecutors in Sussex County, according to reports. Joe Cryan, an assemblyman from Union County, was a rising star in the state's Democratic Party. Until 2010, he was majority leader in the state assembly and state party chairman. The New York Post published an enormous cache of sexually salacious emails allegedly written by Cryan documenting the details of a sado-masochistic affair he had with lobbyist Karen Golding.

IF VINCE FUMO has his way, he'll walk out of prison in less than a year, buy a new house in the Florida Keys, rehabilitate his farm on the Susquehanna River and score a million-dollar yacht if he's able to be relieved of restitution payments he owes. He'll also pen a book, tentatively titled The Senator , with freelance journalist Ralph Cipriano, use lobbying in Harrisburg as a supplemental source of income and exact revenge against prosecutors and political allies who crossed him, according to a court filing from U.S. attorneys released late last week.

DEAR ABBY : A couple of years ago, my husband of 30 years became distant. He didn't want to touch me, talk to me or spend time with me. I was devastated. An old boyfriend emailed me to offer condolences on the death of my brother. There were just chatty emails at the beginning. The emails started becoming more intimate, as I was fed by his seeming "love" for me. He told me I was his "soul mate" and I fell for it. I took risks to see him, eventually slept with him and lied to everyone I know in the process.

ALAWSUIT pitting Gov. Corbett against the Associated Press over access to his schedule threatens to eviscerate the power of the state's Office of Open Records, which exists to make government more transparent. It's yet another example of an administration that came to office promising to change the state's self-protective political culture, but not exactly working to do so. The case stems from a February 2011 request by AP Capital reporter Mark Scolforo to look at Corbett's schedule and emails since he took office that January.

Vince Fumo's attorneys blasted federal prosecutors Friday in a court filing for "Orwellian" behavior when they published excerpts from Fumo's emails last week. While acknowledging the feds had the legal right to do so - and inmates are aware their communications may be monitored - the defense accused prosecutors of "intrusive surveillance" and criticized its "eleventh-hour use" less than two weeks before Fumo's resentencing on Wednesday. Prosecutors said in court papers on Oct. 28 that a trove of emails sent by Fumo between April and October showed he was "wholly unrepentant, virulently hostile toward the prosecutors ... and itching to write a book and exact revenge" on those who opposed him. But the defense said yesterday the feds' portrayal was "skewed" and based on cherry-picking emails to support their case that Fumo was a "conniving megalomaniac anxious to return to a life of crime ... while enjoying the restfulness" of life behind bars.

PhillyNORML says it has started an e-mail campaign that is flooding Mayor Nutter's inbox with messages supporting a City Council-passed marijuana bill. The campaign aims to ratchet up the pressure on Nutter to sign into law a measure that would make possessing a small amount of pot punishable by only a $25 fine, with no arrest. And it's happening as increasing rhetoric over the bill flies at the mayor: Earlier this week, City Councilman James F. Kenney sent a letter to Nutter saying 264 citizens had reportedly been arrested since Council approved the bill on June 19, and arguing that "every day Mayor Nutter fails to act, more young people will be ... jailed for a minimal offense.

A Rutgers University professor who has twice attempted to run for president of Iran says he is disappointed, but not angry or surprised, that the United States reportedly has monitored his e-mail. The online news outlet the Intercept reported Wednesday that e-mail addresses linked to Hooshang Amirahmadi, along with four other prominent Muslim Americans, appeared on a list of more than 7,000 monitored by the FBI and National Security Agency beginning between 2002 and 2008. It remains unclear whether monitoring continues.

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley, who chairs the board of the Delaware River Port Authority, said Thursday that he was considering a request for an emergency board meeting to address the apparent loss of internal e-mails that were subject to a federal criminal investigation. The request for the emergency meeting came from Philadelphia union leader John "Johnny Doc" Dougherty, who represents Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale on the DRPA board. "All of the facts need to be presented to and discussed among the entire board in an open and transparent manner," Dougherty said in a letter Monday to Cawley.

Some e-mails sought in a federal probe of the Delaware River Port Authority appear to have been erased, DRPA officials acknowledged Wednesday. The e-mails were among communications and documents that federal investigators had instructed the DRPA to preserve in March 2013 as part of an investigation into millions of dollars in politically connected "economic-development" spending by the DRPA. The Corbett administration notified the U.S. Attorney's Office in Philadelphia late last week of the missing e-mails, following an internal report from a lawyer hired by the DRPA.

After a litany of startling revelations about the National Security Agency's bulk collection of e-mail and more, most Americans will be surprised that their electronic communications are in some ways more vulnerable to snooping by garden-variety government officials. A woefully outdated law allows agencies ranging from local district attorneys' offices to the IRS to pore over the contents of e-mails without seeking court approval. The law governing e-mail access dates back to the primordial age of the technology, in 1986, when the few who used it had to download messages onto their gigantic home or office computers.

TRENTON - The legislative committee investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closures released new documents Monday that show more communications involving Gov. Christie's former campaign manager than previously disclosed. The e-mails and text messages, filed with Superior Court, indicate that the campaign manager, Bill Stepien, was notified of the Fort Lee mayor's frustration with the lane closures while they were underway in September. They do not show exactly what Stepien knew about the lane closures, or include new revelations about the incident.

TRENTON - A now-fired aide to Gov. Christie and a former official at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey didn't limit their talk of "traffic problems" to Fort Lee: They used the same line while mocking a rabbi, according to newly unredacted documents in the probe into the George Washington Bridge controversy. The material, made public Thursday, was provided to lawmakers by the former Port Authority official, David Wildstein. It does not contain any evidence directly connecting Christie to the September lane closures at the bridge.

The defense in the $6.7 million fraud trial of charter school founder Dorothy June Brown rested Monday without calling Brown or her two codefendants to testify. But before Brown's attorneys ended their side of the case, they put on the stand a former Agora Cyber Charter School parent who is being sued for defamation by Brown. Gladys Stefany testified that she had not written a racist e-mail about Brown, even though she said in a 2010 deposition for the defamation case that she had. Stefany, who is diabetic, told federal jurors that she had been in the deposition for several hours and had not eaten.
