The Secret Service is investigating a hacker's apparent theft of a trove of personal e-mails and photos belonging to the Bush family after they were posted late Thursday by the Smoking Gun website. A report by the Smoking Gun said the e-mails covered the period from 2009 to 2012, and that a total of six accounts appeared to have been compromised. Among those hacked were Dorothy Bush Koch, daughter of President George H.W. Bush and sister of President George W. Bush; as well as sportscaster Jim Nantz, a Bush family friend.

Former Gov. Jon Corzine owes New Jersey taxpayers $127,000 - the amount of state funds he spent on a legal fight to hide his e-mails with former lover/labor leader Carla Katz. Corzine said he had no relationship with Katz when his administration negotiated a new state contract with her union, the 37,000-member Communications Workers of America. But recently published e-mails confirm the public's suspicions that an embarrassing conflict of interest was playing out behind the scenes.

Leonard P. Luchko, the former aide to indicted State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo who pleaded guilty yesterday to charges of trying to thwart the probe of his old boss, implicated himself in a series of e-mails that the FBI later recovered. Prosecutors had charged Luchko and another indicted aide, Mark C. Eister, with a concerted campaign to clean computers used by Fumo, his aides and associates. They say even as the pair demanded that Fumo staffers delete e-mails from their computers, they failed to cleanse their own devices - an oversight the FBI exploited to obtain copies of hundreds of e-mails.

Prosecutors continued yesterday to mount their obstruction-of-justice case against former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo, even as his lawyer said he was buoyed to get hold of a "treasure trove" of e-mail that he hoped would ultimately benefit Fumo. Defense attorney Dennis J. Cogan told U.S. District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter that the defense had been combing through thousands of pages of newly discovered e-mails from computer technician Leonard P. Luchko. In them, Luchko, who worked in the once-powerful Democrat's South Philadelphia office, regrets agreeing to testify against Fumo and contradicts his own guilty plea by insisting he had done nothing wrong.

Question: I'm married with a child and another on the way. I've seen a couple of e-mails on my wife's phone related to dating websites, like eHarmony.com. After a little investigation, it appears that there is no way to sign up to receive those e-mails without posting some type of profile. I am suspicious that she is or was out looking for alternatives. I just don't know what to do. Should I approach her or, because I don't know for sure, just let it go? And I don't know what I'd do if she were out there trolling, as it were.

SOME OF THE bad words that readers used on me after Monday's Michael Vick column: Hypocrite. Elitist. Hater. Neo-Con. Socialist. Judgmental. And the all-purpose tool of the all-around fool: Racist . Oh! Also God , but not in a good way. Here are some excerpts from the hate mail, with answers. (Since I can't verify the sender's identity, first names only.)   "I was wondering if Rick Pitino has your respect," asks e-mailer Rochkar. "He paid for the MURDER of an unborn CHILD.

Call it the many moods of Vince Fumo. In an e-mail war with federal prosecutors, the defense lawyers for former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo released their own selection Friday of Fumo's electronic messages from prison. The defense team said the messages show him to be a different and far more attractive man, or least a more sympathetic one, than the vengeful figure sketched out by prosecutors in their Fumo e-mail dump. In the new round of e-mails, Fumo worries about his weight and his mortality.

Joe Paterno's family called Monday for the public release of e-mails written by top Pennsylvania State University administrators in response to a 2001 allegation of child sex abuse lodged against Jerry Sandusky. The documents - portions of which have been leaked to several media outlets over the past month - allegedly show that the late head football coach and a handful of others debated and ultimately decided against notifying outside authorities after a graduate assistant walked in on Sandusky and a 10-year-old in a sexual position that year.

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration's pick to be the next ambassador to Iraq withdrew from consideration Monday as Senate Republicans suggested his confirmation was endangered because of his behavior and judgment while working at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad in 2008. Brett McGurk's nomination, which was scheduled for a vote Tuesday by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, became endangered after the release on the Internet of sometimes racy e-mails he sent to journalist Gina Chon while he was married and was negotiating a security agreement with the Iraqi government during President George W. Bush's administration.

A FEW WEEKS ago, Tattle led with a story about Will Ferrell developing a comedy in which he would play President Ronald Reagan with Alzheimer's. The movie was listed as a comedy. A number of our readers, including close friends, thought the idea was in terrible taste and let us know in no uncertain terms. Turns out we weren't the only ones to get hate mail. A day or so later, Ferrell dropped out of the project. Ferrell's producing partner, Philadelphian Adam McKay ( The Big Short , Anchorman )

The city's mail center was in "complete disarray," Controller Alan Butkovitz said. Use of overtime had increased while the volume of mail had decreased within a two-year period, according to a report by his office released Wednesday. More than 50 percent of employees were found to have reported late to work during an unscheduled visit by Controller's Office investigators. During that same visit, employees were found "sitting around a table" instead of working, according to Butkovitz.

If you have belatedly received a bill, court order, or notice of a parking violation from the City of Philadelphia, City Controller Alan Butkovitz wants to hear from you. The Controller's Office found 10,000 pieces of mail sitting in baskets, unprocessed, in the city mail distribution center. A several-months-long investigation revealed that hundreds of water bill notices were still in the mail room one day before their due date. Traffic Court subpoenas were also found in the mail room on the same day the individuals were ordered for court, and parking violation notices were found 10 days after their due date, Butkovitz said at a news conference Tuesday.

When Lawrence A. Brown Sr. retired as a Cape May mail carrier, he didn't just watch the waves. "He worked in local restaurants as a prep cook," his daughter, Kelly Ann, said. Mr. Brown was in the kitchens at the former À La Carte in the late 1980s, the Washington Inn in the early 1990s, and the Union Park after that, she said. Why that job in those locations? "He followed his children," she said. In each place, while he was doing prep work, "I was a food server and my brothers were cooks.

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.

The Hillary Rodham Clinton e-mail controversy points out this irony: It's hard to say exactly what a secretary of state's e-mails are. Are they diplomatic communications? Or more like letters? Or both? Last week, it emerged that as secretary of state, Clinton used a single private e-mail address and a personal server for all of her e-mail, official and un. At a Tuesday news conference at the United Nations, Clinton said that she had been at fault and that "looking back, it would have been better for me to use two separate phones and two e-mail accounts," but "it didn't seem like an issue" at the time.

Dave Muha is Big Man on Campus. After lunch in a dining hall at the College of New Jersey, he finds tweets about Muha sightings. He spots his name on T-shirts that raised a record amount of money for last year's freshman class. Every so often, he trends on Twitter as students pray to him, praise him, and plead with him. He can't even buy jeans an hour from the Mercer County campus without being confronted with his fame. "I pass my credit card to the clerk, who looks . . . and then gasps," he said.
