Vice President Gore will make history today by tapping a Jewish senator, Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, as his running mate. Democrats hope Lieberman's reputation for moral rectitude - including his condemnation of President Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky - will offset Gore's association with scandal. Gore called Lieberman to offer him the vice presidential slot yesterday afternoon, hours after Gore's campaign put out word of the selection. Before ending their call, the Southern Baptist vice president and the Orthodox Jewish senator prayed together.

(Spoiler alert: This interview includes discussions of a major plot point from last week's premiere of "How to Get Away with Murder. ") HAVERTOWN'S Tom Verica is busier than you might think. The actor, whose face was revealed at the very end of the pilot for ABC's "How to Get Away with Murder" to be that of the corpse wrapped in a rug, wasn't just lying around: He was moonlighting.

I'M SORRY TO hear that Cardinal Bevilacqua is sick, but I have no sympathy for him. He wasn't sick when the priest sexual-abuse scandal broke. He wasn't sick when the attorneys the diocese hired played hardball with the victims and their families. He wasn't sick when the coverups were going on. He wants to claim that the grand jury is disrespecting him, but what about the victims and their families who were disrespected by diocesan attorneys, and who were lied to - what about them?

WASHINGTON - Three more Secret Service employees have been forced out of the government, bringing to nine the number of people who have lost their jobs in the prostitution scandal roiling the agency. Two employees have resigned and a third is having his national-security clearance revoked, the Secret Service said Tuesday. The employee whose clearance is being revoked can appeal the decision. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said one of the resigning agents stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Cartagena, Colombia, where Obama stayed for the Summit of Americas.

So what are we to call this emerging scandal? How about "Iranamok"? Or "Contradeceptive"? Or maybe "the Swiss Connection"? While Washington goes about the serious business of sorting out who did what and who knew what in the matter of U.S. arms sales to Iran, through Israel, with some of the payments diverted to Nicaraguan rebels, known as contras, by way of a Swiss bank account, a lot of less-serious folks are struggling to come up with...

LONDON - Britain's phone-hacking scandal intensified yesterday as the scope of tabloid intrusion into private voice mails became clearer: Murder victims. Terror victims. Film stars. Sports figures. Politicians. The royal family's entourage. Almost no one, it seems, was safe from a tabloid determined to beat its rivals, whatever it took. The focal point is the News of the World - now facing a spreading advertising boycott - and the top executives of its parent companies: Rebekah Brooks, former News of the World editor who is now chief executive of News International, and her boss, media potentate Rupert Murdoch.

Yup, they're all here, indelibly etched in black and white, quaint artifacts pulled from a time capsule, images plucked from an bygone era of bushy sideburns, rotary phones, bell-bottom jeans, electric typewriters, and smoke-choked rooms. Start with Richard Nixon, the star of this Smithsonian Institution photo exhibit, the President who announced 25 years ago tonight that he was resigning his office. He's up there on the museum wall in all his fading glory - scowling, pacing, cajoling, stalking along a rainswept beach with bodyguards.

There was an almost audible sigh of relief from Republicans last week when President Reagan came down from his California mountaintop and, as he phrased it, put "the machinery in place" to "restore complete confidence" in his shaken administration. Party leaders interviewed around the country expressed fervent hope that the worst of the Iran arms-sale crisis was past - a hope mixed with an uneasy uncertainty that such is really the case. As if in a chorus, almost all of them said "it's too early to tell" what the long-term impact of the crisis will be on the party or the 1988 presidential election.

The U.S. Olympic Committee directed more than $60,000 to support sports in Africa and the Mideast in hopes of currying favor for Salt Lake City's bid for the 2002 Winter Olympics, yesterday's Los Angeles Times reported. The newspaper said it obtained an internal USOC report which revealed that the USOC underwrote training costs and supplies for athletes and coaches from Sudan, Mali, Uganda and Turkey to help Salt Lake City win the 2002 Games. The USOC spent thousands of dollars on equipment such as basketballs and even gave out "pocket money" - $150 a month to each of three Sudanese athletes and a coach for four months in 1995, according to the report, which was said to give the most detailed account to date of the USOC's role in the worst corruption scandal in the history of the Olympic movement.

It is difficult to imagine how anything good could come out of the scandals that have rocked religious broadcasting in recent weeks. In the shadow of all the fun humorists and skeptical columnists have had at the expense of some of the stars of the electric church, the woes of religious broadcasters are no laughing matter. Three national public opinion polls conducted last week point to anger and disillusionment with the video vicarage. Those televangelists most directly involved are most badly damaged.

COUNCILMAN Ed Neilson is no different than the rest of us. He needs to take a load off once in a while. Perhaps that's why he snagged ex-Councilman Jim Kenney's office couch when Kenney decided to run for mayor. Details were sketchy yesterday, but the word in City Hall is that Neilson and a staffer just walked down the hall last week to Kenney's office and made off with the pleather love seat. Bold move, guys! "I assume it was him on one end and his staff member on the other," a source said.

TRENTON - The Christie administration spent nearly $9 million in taxpayer money last year on legal fees related to investigations into the George Washington Bridge scandal, according to records released Friday. The total price tag of the bridge scandal is more than $11 million when factoring in more than a half-million spent by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on legal fees, $1 million by the Port Authority on a report commissioned by Gov. Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and about $1 million spent by a New Jersey legislative committee that investigated the matter.

I'VE BEEN disappointed by many people in my lifetime as, I'm sure, have you. Unless we have hopes that exceed our expectations, life is a colorless and barren experience. At best, it's a mediocre slog. But when you trust someone to act honorably and then they turn around and betray you with dishonesty, it hurts. Depending upon your investment in that person and his or her place in your world, the hurt could be as fleeting as a paper cut or as painful and enduring as an amputation. By that measure, what Brian Williams did is a small bruise, one that will fade in a week or two. I had few expectations of the man who fed me the nightly news, someone who had a pleasant enough delivery, a nice face and some real journalistic chops.

The Coatesville Area School District has reassigned staff members, eliminated some jobs, and suspended staff members with the intent to dismiss as a result of its internal investigation into district management. These and other details have emerged about the extent of mismanagement in the Chester County school district, whose former superintendent and former athletic director were arrested last year on theft and state ethics violations.

THE LURID SEX scandal that has haunted the Philadelphia Fire Department since it became public a week ago has, amazingly, become even more controversial. Joe Schulle, the president of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 22, suggested at a news conference yesterday that the city is trying to cover up information about the scandal, which is threatening to topple the careers of seven Fire Department employees. Schulle said the union has only received redacted portions of a report summing up an Inspector General's Office investigation into allegations that numerous firefighters had sexual encounters with a woman paramedic, who, multiple sources have said, is mentally troubled.

The Philadelphia Office of the Inspector General has recommended that seven Fire Department employees face discipline for their interactions with a female paramedic who filed a sexual harassment complaint against the department last year, union officials said Friday. Among the seven are two battalion chiefs who were determined to have had inappropriate relationships with the woman, a subordinate, according to documents obtained by The Inquirer. The chiefs were not named in the woman's initial complaint, but their involvement with her was revealed as the Inspector General's Office investigated her other claims.

A FIERY SEX scandal threatens to burn up multiple firefighters' careers, including some top brass, according to former Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers. Ayers told the Daily News yesterday that the investigation into a young paramedic's claims of sexual misconduct began shortly before Ayers retired in June. The paramedic - whose identity is being withheld by the Daily News because of the nature of the allegations - has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging misconduct by another paramedic.

The former homicide detective charged with covering up a slaying allegedly committed by his girlfriend has been released on bail, according to court documents. Ron Dove surrendered to police Thursday morning and was later charged with hindering apprehension, conspiracy, and related crimes. He was arraigned later that day and released after posting $25,000 bail. Dove, a 16-year veteran of the force when he was fired in November 2013, is accused of helping his girlfriend, Erica Sanchez, flee the state after she allegedly fatally stabbed her estranged lover, Cesar Vera.
