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.

FOR A LITTLE over 3 decades, Mike Pettine was Central Bucks West football. It was a legacy of unparalleled excellence. That can never be erased. But yesterday's news that the Bucks' 2014 season was being canceled with two games left due to an alleged hazing scandal will assuredly have a widespread impact. And it won't be positive. Nobody understands that more than Pettine, whose son Mike Jr., a West quarterback in the early 1980s, is the first-year head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Doug Wright's over-the-top play is being given an over-the-top production by Luna Theater Company. Quills is about the over-the-top Marquis de Sade, who lent his name to sadism, sexual pleasure derived from inflicting pain, and who wrote novels of shocking, violent pornography. Excess is the name of the game here: sexually, literarily, and theatrically. As Wright explains in his notes on style, "Characters are not good or bad; they are either kissed by God or yoked in Satan's merciless employ.

For a profession that burnishes an image of dispassion and decorum, what's happening with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is like a food fight at a very public banquet. Lawyers, academics, and bar association officials sit dumbstruck, embarrassed to watch, afraid to look away, even more afraid of what might be coming next. "My hope is that I never have to hear one more word about this again, but I'm afraid that I'm going to," said Richard B. Klein, a retired judge of 36 years, 28 years on Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, eight on Superior Court.

SAYREVILLE, N.J. - In front of a crowd that demanded answers and, at times, slammed district officials for their handling of a high school football hazing scandal, the Sayreville Board of Education voted Tuesday night to approve the suspension of football coach George Najjar and four others. The decision came amid an outpouring of support for Najjar and criticism of the board by a volunteer coach, who said the board had "failed. " The other district employees suspended with pay are Edward Mish, Michael Novak, Mark Poore, and Timothy Ballard, all assistant football coaches.

SAYREVILLE, N.J. - The dream of becoming a Bomber on this town's beloved high school football team begins across the street from the stadium floodlights, down the hill on the playing field tucked behind a lake. The Mighty Mites squad of 8- and 9-year-olds pad up in black jerseys, team name on front, last name and number on back. They run tackle and speed drills for two hours three days a week. When coaches speak, the players huddle and take a knee. They are still just children, and don't fully comprehend why the high school football team - the players they idolize - no longer storm the field on Friday nights.

A divided Pennsylvania Supreme Court is expected early this week to decide what to do about one of its justices caught up in the scandal over pornographic e-mails sent among state employees. But what action the court may take against Justice Seamus P. McCaffery, who has acknowledged sending sexually explicit messages from a personal account, remains very much an open question amid intense last-minute lobbying, sources close to the court said. Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille has urged his colleagues to handle the matter swiftly and decisively by suspending McCaffery from his judicial duties and appointing a special master to investigate the matter.

Riding the escalator in Philadelphia's new Family Court after last week's ribbon-cutting ceremony, I overheard a woman remark that the building didn't turn out as bad as she expected, given the grubby scandal that accompanied its creation. I concur. Sure, Philadelphia's first new courthouse in a generation is a dispiriting example of bland, office-park architecture plunked in the civic heart of the city. The exterior has all the charm of a cardboard box - and the proportions to match.

A FEW WORDS come to mind while reflecting on the state porn scandal, which erupted recently when Attorney General Kathleen Kane exposed a ring of state officials exchanging pornographic emails via state computers: Stupid . Maybe "stupid" is not quite right, since these are all relatively high-ranking people, most of whom served under Tom Corbett in the Attorney General's Office. Maybe "arrogant and contemptuous" is better. But "stupid" does cover the notion of anyone working in the 21st century who doesn't understand - or remember - that workplace computers are not private and should not be used for questionable personal reasons.

It's safe to say there's no "Weird Porn Scandal" index tab in the standard political campaign playbook. Yet Gov. Corbett has been forced to deal with just that almost daily since his successor as state attorney general, Democrat Kathleen Kane, released the names of high-level officials from his tenure as A.G. who sent or received pornographic e-mails on state computers. Two appointees in his administration have quit as a result; a third refuses to resign. The timing could not be worse for the Republican governor, already an underdog as he faces voters a little more than three weeks from now. Corbett never received or sent any of the smut, says he was unaware of it - and is furious.

HARRISBURG - Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane's unprecedented move to expose the swapping of pornographic e-mails on state time has so far cost four men their jobs, put another at risk of being stripped of his state post, and left three others deeply embarrassed. All of them may be collateral damage. So far, Kane has not landed a major blow on the man who sources say has long been her main target: former state prosecutor Frank Fina. In fact, she's been muzzled from doing so. The story behind the e-mails is far more tangled than what has become public: that eight men, all with ties to Fina, have been named by Kane as sending or receiving X-rated e-mails in a widening scandal that has also touched a state Supreme Court justice.
