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 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.

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.
