THE WOMAN IN WHITE stood alone on a stage in the National Constitution Center. Quite a contrast to what just appeared on a large screen above the stage: samples of racist and pornographic emails, including a naked, heavyset woman with a pig snout and a curly pigtail protruding from, well, you know where. The Woman in White is also the title of an 1859 British novel involving a woman escaped from an asylum. But that's another story. This story, although it often seems like fiction, is about a woman seeking escape from bad men out to get her. So Kathleen Kane, the state attorney general who says she's been targeted - politically, criminally, constitutionally - for uncovering a network of porn-trading prosecutors, lawyers and judges now is targeting all of the above for possible crimes or ethical violations.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane on Thursday publicly released 48 emails of Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin - many with images of naked women, and others with crude jokes - and said they demonstrated that a misconduct case against him had been wrongly dismissed. The pictures and videos mainly depicted topless women, though several showed full frontal nudity. One contained a graphic depiction of a sex act. The supposed jokes mocked gays, lesbians, feminists, drunken college girls, and, in one message, nuns.

HARRISBURG - State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who has castigated prosecutors, judges, and others for exchanging offensive emails, failed to disclose that her twin sister - a top prosecutor on her staff - sent and received emails that mocked African Americans and Asians, joked about domestic abuse, and included photos of scantily clad men and women. Kane made public her sister's emails late Wednesday after coming under pressure from a Philadelphia prosecutor, who asserted that Kane's sister had sent or received 58 troubling emails - and Kane herself had received 11. The 49-year-old Democrat and her sister, Ellen Granahan, who heads the office's child predator unit, responded later in a joint statement in which they called the prosecutor's remarks "false and defamatory.

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.

IT SEEMS THAT the crazy political year of 2015 is a terrible, terrible time to be Hillary Clinton. As it probably should be, in a way. She's just too closely associated with all of the bad things that our perhaps crazy-like-a-fox electorate is worked up about. Income inequality? Her husband fostered that with a pro-Wall Street agenda that included repealing the Glass-Steagall Act, setting the stage for the 2008 economic crisis. Ditto for mass incarceration. As a senator, Hillary Clinton voted to authorize the horribly ill-conceived invasion of Iraq.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Debra McCloskey Todd said Tuesday that she had urged the Judicial Conduct Board and the disciplinary board for lawyers to review the emails of every judge and lawyer involved in the Porngate scandal, which has cost two of her colleagues their seats on the high court. Todd confirmed that she requested the reviews after a special counsel for the court reported that Justice J. Michael Eakin had exchanged "offensive, tasteless, insensitive, juvenile, and repugnant" emails, many with fellow judges and lawyers.

HARRISBURG - The state's judicial ethics tribunal on Tuesday suspended Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin for his involvement in the "Porngate" scandal, saying his continued presence on the bench harmed the public's trust in the judiciary. The Court of Judicial Discipline said Eakin sent and received offensive email messages, some containing images of naked women and jokes mocking minorities, women, and others, that have "tainted the Pennsylvania judiciary in the eyes of the public.

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.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane said Wednesday that her office had obtained emails among a state judge, his lawyers, and Inquirer reporters because they were housed on her office's computer servers. Responding to an article in The Inquirer reporting that Kane's office had obtained the emails and offered to provide them to other media outlets, Kane said any suggestion that she had acquired the emails from any source other than her servers was "false. " Kane provided no details, but sources said she obtained them because Judge Barry Feudale mistakenly sent the messages to the old email address of a former top prosecutor in the Attorney General's Office.

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.

A prosecutor in Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane's looming criminal trial told a judge Tuesday that Kane's request to tell a jury about her unearthing of offensive emails would mire jurors in "a distraction, a red herring. " But Kane's lawyers said she needed the option of telling the jury about pornographic emails swapped by members of her agency before she took office. Kane is to go on trial Aug. 8 on charges of perjury, official oppression, and other offenses. Prosecutors say she lied about leaking confidential documents to the Daily News to plant a June 2014 story to embarrass a political foe, former state prosecutor Frank Fina.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Emails show Dems' cavalier attitude We see and hear from WikiLeaks-posted emails of the Democratic National Committee that the DNC's servers had been hacked, possibly by Russia ("Turmoil at the top," Monday). Yet Hillary Clinton has ignored and seems oblivious to evidence suggesting emails she so thoughtlessly and arrogantly sent from her unsecured private server while secretary of state may also be in the hands of hackers. The American people have not been served well by her and her party's reckless behavior.

She already had been stripped of her position as chair of the convention after facing intense criticism that she and her operation were biased in favor of Hillary Clinton during the primary.

The New Jersey Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case brought by an open-government activist who contends that the public should be allowed to view electronic data and metadata kept by local government agencies. In summer 2013, John Paff requested a log of the emails sent by the Galloway Township police chief and the township clerk during a two-week period in June 2013, and then sued in an Ocean County court when his request was denied. A judge in 2014 ordered that the information be released to Paff, the chairman of the New Jersey Libertarian Party's Open Government Advocacy Project.

Discretion within reason is acceptable in law enforcement. But while few complain when leniency is afforded ordinary people accused of minor crimes, there will be many critics of the FBI's decision Tuesday not to recommend prosecution of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for carelessly handling top-secret emails when she was secretary of state. Using his favorite medium for mass communication, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted, "FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security.

THE POLITICALLY charged FBI investigation of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's email practices has ended with a recommendation that no criminal charges be filed against her. In my view, it's the right recommendation, since the FBI found no proof of criminality in Clinton's use of a private email server for official business while she was secretary of state. However, as FBI director James Comey rightly said regarding eight Clinton email chains on top-secret matters, "any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton's position . . . should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.

Americans are tired of political "gotcha" games. Yet the scandal engulfing Hillary Clinton about the email system she used while secretary of state isn't just any political food fight: These events exemplify Clinton's elitism and her belief that people like her should make the laws but not have to live under them like the rest of us. Americans should resoundingly reject this tired Washington-knows-best attitude. The recently released State Department inspector general's report examining Clinton's email practices while makes it clear that she has been misleading the public all along.
