7:02 am
she wants nothing to do with it. >> nearly struck by lightning. >> oh, my god! >> all of that matters. >> welcome to diverse tv. >> idris elba summed up the screen actors guild award with that one-liner. >> i've often been told i'm not thin enough, i'm not white enough. damn it, i am enough. >> on "cbs this morning." >> i joke, i say, if you're sick, if you've got 104 temperature, right, i've been doing this, if your doctor says you cannot leave your bed, you won't make it, it doesn't matter. get up and caucus. get up and caucus. >> announcer: today's "eye opener" brought to you by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." the first votes are about to be cast in one of the most of the heated presidential contests in modern history.
7:03 am
caucuses tonight. voters will gather in libraries, school gyms, and private homes. races. and turnout will be key. >> democratic rivals bernie sanders and hillary clinton are neck and neck. and we'll talk with the former secretary of state shortly. 12 candidates are in the republican race with donald trump and ted cruz fighting for first place. first time caucusgoers could decide the outcome. our correspondents and political director are on the campaign trail in iowa. we begin with major garrett with the political showdown. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, and welcome to camp cruz. this is one of two dormitories the campaign has rented here in des moines. i'm keeping my voice down because everybody is still asleep. more than 130 volunteers from 31 states have come to iowa to campaign and mobilize voters for ted cruz. and they do it the old fashioned way. one voter at a time. >> ted has been consistently conservative. no flip-flops.
7:04 am
cruz's iowa headquarters hit the phones sunday. >> we have a lot of leadership in washington who are kowtowing to the president. >> reporter: part of a mobilization effort considered second to none. >> wow! >> reporter: on the stump in des moines, cruz implored his supporters to show up. >> 7:00 p.m. tomorrow night, stand with us. caucus with us. if we stand together, we will win. >> reporter: the cruz campaign also sent this flier, which looks like a government document, highlighting voting violations, to boost turnout among undecided voters. iowa's secretary of state questioned the hardball turnout tactic. so did donald trump. >> it's like an official document being sent to people in iowa that they have to get out and vote because they're in violation. i said that's a fraud, it's really terrible, as far as i'm concerned. >> reporter: cruz supporters
7:05 am
a less typical one. >> let's call donald duck and try to get him to do a debate. >> reporter: deploying "duck dynasty"'s phil robertson to attack your rival for skipping a debate. trump uncharacteristically downplayed the iowa caucuses. do you have to win in iowa? >> no, i don't have to winner it. we have a fairly substantial lead in iowa. i would like to. >> reporter: trump has relied on personal persuasion. >> if your doctor says you cannot leave your bed, you won't make it, it doesn't matter. get up and caucus. get up and caucus. >> reporter: trump has no dormitory for volunteers, but he does have sarah palin, who will campaign with him later today innin cedar rapids.
7:06 am
they're totally committed to him, that's the highest in the field. but trump is almost no one's second choice. that could give cruz an advantage among caucusgoers who could still change their mind. >> major, thank you very much. the "des moines register" poll has predicted eight of the last nine iowa caucus winners. a lot of focus is on who will finish third. marco rubio is currentlyn third place in the latest poll. dean reynolds is in the state capital in des moines with mainstream republicans trying to dean, good morning. >> reporter: well, if the polls are right, the big loser tonight establishment. and the big question is what impact that defeat will have on the race going forward. >> i've got terry branstad at home. i look at it for inspiration. >> reporter: governor chris christie shared the stage with iowa governor terry branstad, a

and an icon of the party establishment. >> i can't wait to get into the white house and call terry branstad and say, help me fix america the way you fixed iowa. we'll do it together. >> reporter: senator marco rubio in cedar rapids implored the crowd. >> vote for someone who gives us a chance to win. >> reporter: polls say neither he, christie, jeb bush, nor john kasich have much of a shot in iowa. >> you've got to have a winner this time. you're going to have a winner. >> reporter: with iowa republicans more inclined toward donald trump or ted cruz. >> god bless the great state of iowa. >> reporter: rubio and the rest are pinning their hopes on the next contest in new hampshire. >> we'll be leaving as soon as the caucus is over and we'll be in new hampshire tuesday morning, ready to work. >> reporter: so for them, iowa is a scramble for third or fourth place.
7:08 am
of picking presidents, though. >> reporter: governor branstad has not endorsed any candidates but has appeared with the ones he likes and not appeared with the ones he doesn't. >> we have more candidates than we've ever had. i think we'll have a record turnout. i respect the outcome from the iowa republican caucusgoers. >> reporter: now, losing iowa is not always politically fatal. of the many losers here, ronald reagan was one who lost in 1980, but went on to win the presidency later that year. >> an important reminder. dean, thank you so much. when voter turnout means everything, snow can really disrupt the caucuses. a blizzard is moving across the plains toward iowa this morning, making some candidates nervous. the latest poll of democrats shows hillary clinton with the 3-point lead over bernie sanders. nancy cordes is at a caucus site in des moines where caucusgoers
7:09 am
nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's hard for even iowans to believe the day is finally here. take a look at the newspaper, "caucus: let your voice be heard." this is one of those places where the voices will be heard, in this middle school 6 to 800 voters will gather and try to convince each other to switch sides, making an already tight race even more unpredictable. >> we can't afford to make a mistake. >> reporter: look for redemption in a state she lost eight years ago, clinton boiled down her message to its essence. >> stick with ideas that will actually work for our country. >> reporter: just like 2008, a one-time underdog is nipping at her heels. >> it sounds like you want to make a political revolution. [ cheers and applause ]
7:10 am
>> here's a radical idea. together we're going to create an economy that works for all of us, not just for 1%. [ cheers and applause ] >> in this first column we've got age and gender. >> i'm calling with the hillary clinton campaign. >> reporter: the campaigns have invested heavily in their get out the vote efforts. >> we're going to walk it three times before monday. >> reporter: the sanders team told cbs news 4,000 volunteers knocked on 112,000 doors this weekend. >> i will be caucusing tomorrow. >> for bernie? >> yes. >> excellent. >> reporter: a poll out this weekend found 83% of clinton supporters say their mind is made up, compared to 69% for sanders. both of them pulled out all the stops this weekend to charm voters, even serenading their supporters.
7:11 am
me >> reporter: former maryland governor martin o'malley is at 3% in the polls, and in a primary that would make him a non-factor. but in a caucus, where neighbors can horse trade, they can switch allegiances halfway through, that 3% could make the difference, especially since clinton and sanders are separated by about 3 points, charlie. >> thanks, nancy. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in des moines. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what should we be looking at and what could be the consequences of iowa? >> on both republican and democratic side, we're looking for turnout. if it's bigot rep on the republican side, that means donald trump and ted cruz's supporters have come out to caucus.
7:12 am
bernie sanders has created an actual organization that can turn out voters to the caucuses. those are the first two big things i'm looking for. what we'll learn tonight on the democratic side, we'll learn if hillary clinton's structure, which she's been working on for months and months, before bernie sanders was a threat, she was building an organization here to handle a threat that he has become. and we'll find out if that organization beats the enthusiasm that he's been able to build. and on the republican side, we'll find out if ted cruz has been able to have an organization that can do better than the polls are showing. that will tell us not only about how well he can do here, but if he can launch the conservative revolution he's been saying he'll launch. >> donald trump told you yesterday, john, that he doesn't have to win iowa. a, does that surprise you, and do you think he's trying to lower expectations? >> two things you do on caucus day here in iowa. one, you try and turn out your voters, and two, you try to manage expectations.
7:13 am
politician in that sense. he doesn't necessarily have to win in iowa. but it is the center of his argument, that he's a winner. and so that would be a big blow. but the one thing that would save him is there's not a clear alternative. there's an alternative in iowa but it's not necessarily the case that all republicans think ted cruz is the alternative to donald trump. >> and there's also the point that he says if he wins in iowa he might be able to run the table. >> yes, he might be able to run the table, although, you know, things change after we get out of iowa. we'll see how marco rubio does and whether he becomes the which is a much more favorable state for him. >> thank you, john. ahead, more of john's one on one interview with donald trump. and hillary clinton will be with us from des moines, we'll talk morning." international health officials today could declare emergency. the world health organization is meeting in geneva to discuss an
7:14 am
there are at least 31 cases in the united states. all are related to recent travel outside this country. >> reporter: good morning. brazil has been hardest hit by the zika virus. it may have arrived here in 2014 at the world cup soccer tournament and since then has exploded, infecting up to 1.5 million people in brazil alone. the fear is it could spread to another 4 million people across months. it's become an all too common scene. insecticide in the hopes of killing this, the mosquito aedes aegypti, responsible for the zika virus sweeping through latin america and the caribbean. the virus has been suspected of causing an increase in cases of microcephaly, children born with unusually small heads, often with brain damage.
7:15 am
of microcephaly have been reported so far in brazil, and pregnant women fear other side effects from the virus. >> the public doesn't know everything about the zika. we don't know exactly the consequence of the virus, only the microcephaly. >> reporter: tourism will also likely suffer, despite officials downplaying risks to visitors. rio's famed carnival festival begins on the 5th. health workers took to the streets, armed with instruments and information. events like this wrestling match are already under way and athletes are taking precaution, using bug spray and staying indoors. >> kind of scary. there's nothing you can do, if you get bit, you get bit. >> reporter: if the world health organization declares the virus a public health emergency, it will be only the fourth time the organization has done so,

student is accused of killing a 13-year-old girl. that is ahead. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. "the washington post" agency officials deliberately transmit memos that contain false information to protect secrets. critics say official records can be tainted because there is no clear way to label the documents. the cia declined to comment. "the san francisco chronicle" reports on plans by the justice department to review the san francisco police department. this comes in the wake of a deadly shooting after black man by police. the december incident was caught on video. police say the 26-year-old mario woods was suspected in a stabbing earlier that day and refuse to do drop his knife. the orange county register reports on the dramatic capture of escaped california prisoners. here is police audio as officers swooped in on one of the suspects.
7:31 am
inchts, they discovered tieu at a whole foods parking lot. a third fugitive vended on thursday. a fireball scene in the sky. hundreds reported sightings. no official word to what it was but nasa says a fireball is usually a bright meteor. a weekend poll shows hillary clinton leading bernie sanders by three points. that is within the survey's margin of error. >> the candidates made their final pitches on sunday in iowa. clinton urged voters to come out to the caucus and, quote, stick with me. sanders predicted he will win tonight if there is a large voter turnout. democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton is with us now from des moines. secretary clinton, good morning. >> thank you, charlie. good to talk to you and norah and gayle.
7:32 am
final countdown takes place. the sanders' campaign, over the weekend released a commercial that suggested were in the pockets of wall street and said that, in fact, the e-mails could render you unelectable. >> well, that has been the trend the last few weeks. the sanders' campaign has gotten more negative and more personal, which i regret, because i thought we were running a really good campaign based on the issues, what we would do and how we would do it, and i'm drawing contrast with senator sanders because i think voters deserve to know where i stand on creating jobs and raising incomes and making sure the affordable care act continues to work, and produces the results that i want to see it do, and so many of the other important issues, like affordable college and paying down student debt. you know, i have a long agenda, because i think that is what voters expect. i want them to know what i will
7:33 am
to hi've done throughout my career. >> on the campaign trail, how do you answer that charge that senator sanders has made that you're in the pocket of wall street or beholding to their interests? >> well, look. anybody who knows me know i'm not in the pocket of anyone and anyone who thinks they can influence me certainly doesn't know me. but what i do think is interesting is i've laid out the most comprehensive, toughest, defective plan to make sure wall street never wrecks main street again. don't take my word for it. that is what paul crudman and barney frank and others have said. the republicans have now run about 6 million dollars of ads against me and billionaire hedge fund guys, karl rove and others
7:34 am
democrats who has the best plan and best understanding about how to get this done. so i take it, as kind of a perverse compliment. people who know what needs to be know know i'm the person to deliver to make sure we don't end up with the kind of problems we faced back in 2008. >> bernie sanders says that a large voter turnout today, madam secretary, works in his favor. what do you think works in your favor in terms of the turnout and the type of voter that needs to go today to caucus for you? >> well, i really want a large turnout, because we have knocked on 125,000 doors this weekend across the state and we got a great response. i'm really pumped up and enthusiastic about the way my campaign has been moving toward this day. and it really does come down to who turns out. i've been telling people the weather forecast today that the blizzard won't get here until after the caucuses, so don't be deterred.
7:35 am
come out and to be part of this, because these -- this comes only once with. the people of iowa get the unique opportunity before anybody in the world to decide who they think should be the next president, and commander in chief. and i'm urging everybody who wants to go and caucus for me and stand up for me to please do so, so i can stand up and fight for them through the campaign and into the white house. >> you got a big endorsement from "the new york times" saying you are one of the best qualified people to run for president in a long time. there is also the tough competition and success of bernie sanders. do you believe that he, who suggests needs to raise taxes for some of the programs he would like to see the country have, and because he is a democratic socialist, can be elected? >> well, charlie, a lot of democrats are worried about that. they are speaking out. they are worried that, you know, it could be difficult and we certainly want to take back the senate. we have got great candidates running across the country who
7:36 am
house and state houses. i think it's fair to say that the differences we have, they goals. we both want universal health care coverage, for example. i believe we should build on the affordable care act. we are at 90% coverage and it's one of the great democratic party achievements and i was thrilled when president obama got it done. i want to improve on it, but i don't want to rip it up and start all over again and throw our country into a very contentious national debate, which i think will result in gridlock. i don't think the people of iowa and america can wait. so i'm going forward on what i believe is my obligation. i'm a progressive who likes to get things done, that make a real difference in people's lives and that is what i'm offering to the american people. >> let me go back to politics. suppose you lose tonight and suppose the markgin that he has in new hampshire stays. do you have a firewall after that in south carolina and the states that follow that, the
7:37 am
a strong finish? >> well, look. i'm very excited about our on prospects here tonight in iowa and i'm going to work as hard as i can until all of the votes are tallied in the caucuses and then i will immediately, tonight, go to new hampshire. i'm going to campaign hard in new hampshire. i know that usually new hampshire votes for a neighbor and he is their neighbor. so i get that. but i think i have the better plans. i think i have the better understanding of what it will take to beat the republicans. i'm tested. i'm a little bit scarred up, but i'm still standing and i think that kind of experience will really do me well in this campaign and i believe that i'm the democrat who can make sure we keep the white house in the right hands going forward. >> all right. secretary clinton, thank you for your time. it's wonderful to watch democracy in action on both sides of the aisle and thank you
7:38 am
>> thanks. yes, we do. >> we will be right back. after trying brookside chocolate,

where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. everyone needs a bff. even your smile. colgate optic white express white toothpaste with hydrogen peroxide. for whiter teeth in 3 days. think of it as your smile bff. colgate optic white express white. whiter teeth in 3 days just by brushing. 85% of men say eating right helps prepare them

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday, february 1st, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including the countdown to today's caucuses. presidential candidates make their final pushes in iowa ahead the first voting in campaign 2016. first, here's today's "eye opener." well, if the polls are right, the big loser tonight will be the republican party establishment. >> hard even for iowans to believe the day is finally here. take a look at the front page of the "des moines register." >> two things you do on caucus day here in iowa, one, you try to turn out your voters and two, manage expectations. >> the blizzard isn't going to get here until after the caucuses. don't be deterred.
7:59 am
and be part of this. brazil has been hit by the zika virus. it may have come since 2014, since then it has exploded. >> how about those pants. >> i'm trying to get a pair for the president. >> if i can get them, i'll bring them tomorrow. >> i'd pay money. >> $800? >> yes, i would pay $800. >> hello. $800. >> stand up. >> $800. what have i gotten myself into? >> cue charlie. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. we're just hours away from the first votes in the 2016 presidential race. iowa will hold its caucuses tonight. when iowa democrated caucused in 2008 they sent barack obama on his way to the white house. he defeated hillary clinton with almost 38% of the vote.
8:00 am
clinton faces a similar challenge. bernie sanders, another candidate promising change is just three points behind her in the latest des moines register poll. nancy cordes is covering the democrats in des moines. good morning, nancy. >> reporter: good morning. you know, the caucus process is so unique, come tonight you'll have hundreds of people here in this middle school gym iness minutes and they will be horse training, trying to bring their neighbors over to their side. i was just talking to a social studies teacher here at the middle school. he said the most powerful people on any caucus night are the undecided. the die hars will come armed with their toughest messages, the clinton folks will be arguing she has the plan. she's been tested in every way. the sanders folks will argue we need revolutionary change. the status quo isn't good enough when working families are falling behind.
8:01 am
getting your supporters here in the first place. the sanders team told us that their volunteers knocked on 112,000 doors just this weekend. clinton told you a short time ago her team knocked on 125,000 doors just yesterday. are these numbers accurate? there's no way for us to know, both teams are sort of thumping their chest. obviously a big win for sanders would be a game changer for clinton, though, a win is crucial because she's way behind in new hampshire, the next contest up. if she loses in both states it will be hard to argue she's still the front-runner. >> nancy, thank you so much. this weekend's poll shows donald trump leading ted cruz by five points. cruz said he doesn't view any state as a must-win. he and his campaign have made a huge effort in iowa. major garrett is in des moines. >> reporter: what you see around me is camp cruz. we're coming to you from the
8:02 am
apartment complexes where about 130 cruz volunteers have been rotating through since early december. if cruz wins tonight, organizational muscle like this will be the reason why. the cruz campaign tells us it's identified every potential likely caucus attendee tonight. not only contacted them personally once, twice but many times. even built a mathematical model it believes will ensure victory. it breaks down like this. about four years ago, 122,000 republicans showed up at the caucus. estimates are turnout tonight could rise to 150,000. cruz's campaign manager ensures me that they will win even if it reaches 150,000. if it reaches beyond 170,000 trump will win because he's attracted so many new caucusgoers. >> thanks, major.
8:03 am
need to win tonight's iowa caucus but he told john dickerson in a "face the nation" interview he's confident he can. >> in iowa, your campaign is based around the idea you're a winner. does that mean you have to win iowa? >> i don't have to win it and right now you and i are sitting in new hampshire. i have a substantial lead in new hampshire. i think it would be really good to win iowa. i'd like to win iowa. i'm doing really well with the evangelicals. i have a fairly substantial lead in iowa. i think we have a good chance of winning iowa. i'd like to. >> your rallies, the people attending like you are uncompromising. i talked to washington insiders, some lawmakers who are overcoming their skepticism about you by thinking he's going to compromise. he's going to make deals in washington. which one is right? >> i think everyone's right. honestly, i think they're both right.
8:04 am
it's sort of funny. when i see ted cruz standing in the senate and nobody else is with him, he's standing all by himself and you have all of these other politicians, senators and congressmen generally and he's trying to -- he's by himself. they're not going to get anything done. you've got to be able to get things done. ted doesn't have an endorsement from one united states senator. >> he'd say that's great. >> no, no, it's bad. >> you've said such terrible things about them in washington. >> they're not bad people. a lot of them are good people and some are people that won't get it done. when ted doesn't have one senator, like a mike lee who is a conservative guy, good guy, why isn't he getting the endorsements. >> there's a lot of drama around your campaign. you're occasionally in twitter wars. is that presidential? >> i've been in twitter wars before i was a politician. i went to great schools. i was a great student, all of that stuff.
8:05 am
>> you talked about how you'd like to be unpredictable. is that unpredictability? >> yes, our enemies know what we're going to do, whether it's battle, war, finance. >> if you're president, people have this anxious feeling about you. you have to fix that. >> i don't think they do, i really don't. once they know me, in fact i was listening to to one of your co-horts last week. they said they've never seen favorables go up so fast as my favorables, especially for somebody so well known. it was almost unheard of. my favorables are very good now. they said they've never seen anything like that. >> i think you'd have to agree, you went to a chur service. the sermon was in part on humility. >> they didn't know i was coming because of security reasons. we just sort of showed up. maybe they changed quickly. or maybe it was coincidence. >> it was humility.
8:06 am
think -- your name is on everything. you often talked about -- you sometimes brag, it's part of your pitch. >> there's more humility than you would think. >> hidden humility. >> we're all the same. we're all going one of two places. i have much more humility than a lot of people would think. >> and he says so. he says so. >> fun to watch. only on "cbs this morning," dierks bentley is here in studio 57 to announce top nominations for the academy of country music awards. dierks bentley, steve kroft is always looking for a good story. feel free to share. rising stars like maddie and tay, they were here. first, ithe week very cold and wet today... but northerly winds are howling now and we'll dry out quickly over the next day or so.

8:11 am
last night "60 minutes" aired a report using hidden footage that raised questions about how far some american lawyers might be willing to go to help bring questionable funds into the u.s. this story showed what happened when an investigator for global witness went undercover 19 months ago. while posing as the representative of a phony african official, he met with more than a dozen new york law firms to get advice on moving tens of millions of dollars into the united states without the minister's name being revealed. he secretly recorded the conversations. here is part of steve kroft's report. >> good to see you. >> good to see you. >> reporter: the undercover investigator who called himself
8:12 am
the minister used his official position to collect tens of millions of dollars in special payments from foreign companies to help them obtain valuable mineral rights. he wanted to move the money to the united states to buy a house, a jet and a yacht. >> he wants to bring the money into the u.s. >> yes. >> started with a brownstone and buying a jet, he wants to commission the building of a yacht and buy more property. >> reporter: the story was intentionally devised to raise red flags and lead the lawyers to believe the minister's money was dirty. during the meetings, only one of the 16 lawyers, jeffrey herman, told him no. >> this ain't for me. my standards are higher. >> reporter: the rest expressed varying degrees of interest with most of them offering advice on how it could be done. >> we do everything, soup to nuts. there's no limitations.
8:13 am
windows or deal with the financial money manager or whatever. we orchestrate and organize the entire thing. we're happy to take that responsibility. >> reporter: what's important to point out and it cannot be overstated, is that none of the lawyers we've shown you broke any laws, in part, because the african minister didn't really exist, there were no hundreds of millions of dollars and global witness witnesses said no money ever changed hands. >> this is a morality test. >> it wasn't -- it was a test on the system. >> you know, people could make the argument, all these guys did really was listen to this person that came into their office. they didn't make a deal. they didn't sign up. they said we need to do more research. >> and you know what, they'd be absolutely right to say that. they need to say something else with too, those lawyers laid out in often considerable detail a myriad of different ways to bring money into america. >> reporter: none of the lawyers
8:14 am
minister as a client nor were they asked to. it was a preliminary meeting. that ended with most of the attorneys expressing interest in continuing the dialogue and some enthusiastic about landing the business. >> steve kroft joins us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> incredible piece to watch. none of these lawyers technically broke any laws. how is that possible? >> there was no crime. everything was fake. so no money changed hands. there was no minister, no millions of dollars. so there was nothing to prosecute. >> commissioner bratton has a saying in new york, i've heard him say, it could look awful but it's lawful. when i was looking at that last night i was thinking that. when you air the recordings, aren't those attorney/client privilege? how are we aible to see that? >> it's strange. i didn't know this before we had done the story. the privilege is mr. to protect the client, not to protect the lawyers and the klein the which in this case was global witness
8:15 am
if they said we want to release the contents of this conversation with our lawyers, it's their right. >> one of the lawyers was james silkenat, head of the bar association. >> was the head of the american bar association. >> you know, because he was head of the bar association and representing lawyers in the united states, i think that was the main reason. he was a different category. because he was specifically selected. and also, he was much more suspicious of the african minister than some of the other people. he was much more cautious in his part about moving forward. they said they didn't participate in which any criminal activity was involved. >> only one lawyer, mr. herman, he said this ain't for me, my standards were higher. was that surprising to you. >> very surprising. >> that there was only one. >> all of the other lawyers expressed concern they didn't
8:16 am
knew there were legal issues. >> eventually they came up with ideas after expressing concern. >> then they went on to give advice. >> what do you think the end result of this is? do you think legislation will be proposed? there seems to be a gaping loophole. >> i think the bar association will probably step in and do something. i think they need to tighten up some of their own regulations. they have a bit of a pr problem here. the other thing is, there is legislation. the reason it's so easy, it's $300 billion of money gets laundered in the united states every year. it's because it's the easiest place in the world. >> why is that? >> you don't have to list who the beneficial owner is of the company. when you file incorporation. you don't have to say who actually owns it. you could put down the names of the secretaries in the office. >> when people buy real estate, they do that often. >> they do it. there's nothing illegal about setting up a limited liability corporation slngs you're doing it to protect yourself against liability or protect your
8:17 am
if you do it to conceal a criminal act, then it's money laundering. >> eye opening indeed. thank you, steve kroft. >> always good to have you here. >> always a pleasure. a police dog is listed as city property that must be auctioned off. oh, no. ahead, how the public is rushing to help a retired officer to keep his faithful okaycanine companion. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back.t the nutrition that i'm missing. boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of proteinto help maintain muscle. all with a great taste. i don't plan on slowing down any time soon. stay strong. stay active with boost . see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have.

before you met her. you say deliberately not having sex is a foreign concept to men. >> it is. >> to every man i know. >> for ten days sometimes it's a foreign concept. but for me, it started a spiritual practice. my other life, i'm a preacher and i didn't want to live two lives. i wasn't practicing celibacy but talking about ten he said i have to have the man god called me to be and part of that is taking this vow and waiting until marriage. when i started doing that it gave me discipline to help me in every other discipline of my life. i told men you want to be successful get victory over this area and there is nothing in life you can't do. >> why was the wait important? >> it was very important. because at the end of the day, what i found is when you're dating and you have sex on the table, things get cloudy. >> you said it clouds your judgment. >> it's almost like dating under infatuation. the infatuation period you don't know who the person is. >> yeah. i think the truth is a lot of times it takes us years down the
8:34 am
are dating because we are a little bit blinded and making excuses here and there for the person because we are so physically coopinion dependent on them and when you take that out of the equation you get to know the person across the board in every other way, except the physical way, which comes later and it's icing on the cake. >> sexual compatibility is an important part of marriage. >> absolutely. >> a lot of marriages break up because people are not sexually compatible. if you don't have sex before your marriage, how do you know if you're not compatible and that part of your intimate relationship will work? >> here is what we found and even in our own relationship. where you have a foundation of love and friendship and trust and then you get into sex, you now have a foundation to explore each other. what we have also found is you say, hey, i want to find out if we have sexual chemistry right now. it could create sex but no love. we wanted to find out can we love each other without letting
8:35 am
the thing to determine if we like each other and we found out it was very strong. >> was there a gateway to other things, so to speak? when it came, it gave you an opportunity to -- >> i'm sorry? >> in other words, how do it change your life after? >> oh, yeah. >> was it worth the wait? >> yes, it was worth the wait. it was worth the wait. >> so great and because you knew each other and because there was no sexual dynamic? >> right. >> able to explore everything else? >> there is so much trust and there is so much confidence and there is so much, like, just a knowingness that we have, because the foundation of what it was built on to us is just so solid and everything else, that is additional and icing on the cake. but i just don't know how to explain it. >> i thought it was interesting because you had a label of being a party girl. you had a lot of different high profile boyfriends, a lot of high profile relationships. and so when people heard you are now celibate, people are saying, what? what is it that you want people
8:36 am
was it a big change in your life for you? a big change in your way of thinking or did it happen after you met him? >> no, it happened after -- it happened after jumping the broom. i came home and prayed about what i needed to be doing because i felt like i was a mess and i felt i had hit rock bottom in terms of emotionally and spiritually and in that prayer time i came to the conclusion i needed to be celibate and doing something different than i had been doing the years before and every relationship i came out of, i felt a conviction about wanting to be celibate but the person wasn't on the same page with me or i would get fearful i would lose them and we would break up, whatever it may be and it wasn't until i just decided this is what i need to do for me because i need to heal and focus on myself and i need to advance myself in every area of my life without the distraction of, you know, feeling like i need this, man, whoever it maybe. >> some definition of celibacy? if you march up to sex and if
8:37 am
>> celibacy is about purpose. it's about, you know, abstaining from sex with purpose. a different between celibacy and abstinence. abstinence is i'm not doing it. you can be abstinent because you don't have options. we define sal bassey abstaining from sex because a higher purpose and higher calling and specifically related to marriage. >> what can you do that does not violate your vow? >> it's about remaining pure. >> there are other things you can do? romantically. >> hugging, kissing. >> hugging, kissing. >> holding each other tight! >> hugging isn't what we are talking about here! >> right, right. >> but you're saying there are other ways of being intimate than the actual act of introduce is what we are saying. >> yes. >> definitely. >> i don't think we are saying what you're saying. we are saying that physically, there is a line. and anything that would put you over that line where it's like,
8:38 am
kind of doing it but not and something we avoid. >> people want to have sex because i like you and you like me, is that a terrible way to live you're saying? >> in our experience, we just feel at the end of the day you have to decide what you want out of life. what do you want and where are you going and make the decisions to help you get there. >> thank you both so much. >> thank you.
