John J. Dougherty, electricians' union leader, city Democratic treasurer, Philadelphia mayoral hopeful, has opened a new front in the political wars that have enveloped him in recent months. But where Dougherty's other recent battles have been behind-the-scenes struggles with fellow Democratic power brokers, the latest engagement comes in the form of a lawsuit pitting his International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 98 against ABC affiliate WPVI-TV (Channel 6). In a suit filed yesterday in Common Pleas Court, the union claims it was defamed by a WPVI news report that said federal investigators were pressuring convicted City Councilman Rick Mariano to provide potential information for a probe of Dougherty's relationship with a local electrical contractor.

THE HONCHOS at CBS3 might want to get their checkbook out. It seems that back on Sept. 29, station anchorman Chris May looked into the teleprompter and reported that a school police supervisor at a city charter school was fired over allegations that he sexually abused a boy. "Howard Rubin is the suspect," May intoned, as Rubin's picture flashed on the screen. "He is accused in the sexual abuse of an underage male student. " Now, here's why CBS3's story may cost the station big bucks in a lawsuit filed Friday: Rubin not only was not fired, but he also has not been accused of, nor arrested for, sexually abusing anyone.

The White House last night announced that Alan D. Lewis, the U.S. marshal in Philadelphia who has come under fire in recent months for alleged wrongdoings in office, has been dismissed by President Bush. "Yesterday [Thursday], the President decided to act upon the recommendation of Attorney General [John] Ashcroft and the Department of Justice inspector general to remove Mr. Lewis," White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said in a telephone interview last night. Lewis could not be reached for comment - a call to his government cell phone was answered by a marshal who said that all of the equipment issued to Lewis had been recalled.

  The president of the Philadelphia lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police assailed the Philadelphia Daily News on Wednesday, saying there were credible allegations that two of the newspaper's reporters paid for utility bills, food, diapers, and other gifts to a woman whose story was told in their Pulitzer Prize-winning series on police misconduct. In an interview later in the day, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey raised similar criticisms of the reporters, saying that if the allegations were true, the reporters crossed an ethical line.

B USTED , the memoir from the Daily News ' own Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman , based on their Pulitzer Prize-winning series, "Tainted Justice," has been optioned for a television series from Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, with Sarah Jessica Parker starring. The show will be co-produced by Anonymous Content, the company behind the much-buzzed-about "True Detective. " "We're bonkers out of our minds with glee," Ruderman said. This is Parker's first return to TV since a stint on, appropriately, "Glee," and her first major role since "Sex and the City.

WE ALL have our ideas for civic improvement (like putting a roof over the Penn's Landing portion of I-95 or abolishing the Philadelphia Parking Authority). Well, here's another: force 1812 Productions to make "This Is the Week That Is" a year-round proposition. We can't guarantee this would make Philly better, but it certainly would make it much funnier. Unfortunately, as it stands, this year's edition of the ripped-from-the-headlines laugh-fest ends its six-week run June 1, so you have but two weeks to see this comedy cavalcade that delivers on numerous levels.

ON THE second day, Attorney General Kathleen Kane fought back. Pennsylvania's Democratic top prosecutor was on the defensive yesterday after a front-page story in Sunday's Inquirer - with a PEARL-HARBOR-BOMBED-size headline - suggested that her office had botched a probe in which five Philly pols were caught taking cash or gifts from a lobbyist. Kane said at a feisty Harrisburg news conference that the case she was handed when she took office last year was unwinnable. "We believe that certain legislators were taking money, and that's a crime," said Kane, who pointed out that federal prosecutors and the Philadelphia district attorney also have been unable to find a way to press charges and that a GOP district attorney in Dauphin County has concurred.
