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.

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.

All our July chin-pulling about polls and veeps and CIA missteps has little to do with November's election, which will be decided by unforeseeable events. Instead, let's counter-program, to examine a political corruption story beginning to gain traction that will reach warp speed in hearings and headlines next spring. At least eight official investigations have begun into the largest financial rip-off in history: preliminary estimates from the GAO point to $10 billion skimmed or kicked back or otherwise stolen in the United Nations dealings with Saddam Hussein.

DISTRICT ATTORNEY Seth Williams is likely to have a crummy morning. Same goes for three city prosecutors - Frank Fina, Marc Costanzo and Pat Blessington - who are at the center of the Porngate email scandal. For the first time since the scandal broke earlier this year, the women of City Council plan to hold a news conference this morning to "denounce the demeaning, misogynistic and racist emails sent on state-owned computers by prosecutors currently employed" by Williams, according to a news release put out by the Philadelphia chapter of the National Organization for Women.

A year after explosive corruption allegations brought statewide attention to Centre County's courthouse, the first official fallout has come from the ballot box. Voters in the Pennsylvania county last week ousted the commissioner whose bitter feud with the district attorney resulted in several lawsuits against the county. District Attorney Stacy Parks-Miller is suing the commissioners, county staff, and several attorneys, charging defamation after a series of allegations that she forged a judge's signature and violated ethics rules.

More than 2,000 middle school students in the Tredyffrin/Easttown district will get new training in safe communication and Internet use in the coming weeks after three students were charged with distributing sexually explicit images and harassing classmates, the superintendent said. In a letter to parents, Superintendent Richard Gusick said he knew many were disappointed to hear about the still-unfolding sexting scandal. "I firmly believe that all children should be educated to act respectfully online and face to face," Gusick said in his letter, emailed to parents Thursday and posted on the district's website.

YESTERDAY, the air in Pennsylvania got dirtier, when Attorney General Kathleen Kane released the latest batch of emails from the private account of Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin. Last year, he was cleared by the Judicial Conduct Board of bad behavior for his participation in email exchanges. But what emails the board actually saw before they gave Eakin a pass is in question; that's in part why Kane keeps them coming. After reviewing a large batch of them, here's what we think:     1. Standards for judicial conduct in Pennsylvania are ludicrously low. In 2014, the Judicial Conduct Board sent Eakin a letter explaining that why they were dismissing complaints against him: The images were only "mildly pornographic or sexually suggestive in the vein of . . . Playboy magazine.

HARRISBURG - There will be more porn - and lots of it. As beleaguered Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane waits for her law license suspension to take effect, her spokesman said Tuesday the office was preparing to release hundreds of sexually explicit emails shared by state officials and employees on government time and computers. Kane first signaled her intention to do so Monday, hours after the state Supreme Court voted to suspend her license while she faces criminal charges.

Gov. Christie on Sunday continued to fight back against suggestions that indictments of his former allies and another federal investigation into the former chair of the Port Authority reflected poorly on his judgment. Asked on NBC's Meet the Press if the Port Authority was a stain on his administration, Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, responded, "No. It is not. Nothing has been proven yet. " Christie also argued he had properly responded to the George Washington Bridge lane-closure scandal - in contrast, he said, to Hillary Rodham Clinton's handling of the controversy over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

You can see the temptation in producing The Captive : In 1926, the entire cast was arrested, and the American production closed. The content was judged scandalous because the plot centered on a lesbian. It's always interesting to know what was shocking a hundred years ago. But anthropology isn't theater, and there is nothing at all shocking about The Captive now. This French soap opera by Edouard Bordet, directed by Dan Hodge, is, as melodramas often are, about secrets. Twenty-five-year-old Irene (Rachel Brodeur)
