7:12 am
few weeks if this rhetoric didn't get tamped down. i talked to rubio over the weekend and he looks almost pained when he says, well, i will still support the nominee but it's getting harder every day. you can almost hear it in his voice. >> we have five states voting tomorrow. the likelihood trump will do very well and in ohio whether the early voting for rubio helps him. if he wins big tomorrow night, what do you see the party does? >> i think the party has very few options. i think they have a lot of procedural options in the convention they would love to avoid. i think the scenario most in the party -- the official party would say if kasich continues to win ohio it continues to be muddled. as long as it's muddled they have the opportunity to continue to work the problem and to have sort of things coalesce in the other direction. but, look. if he wins by big margins tomorrow, he has all of that much more leverage in this. >> if he wins in florida, trump, and loses in ohio, what does
7:13 am
that mean? >> it muddles things, i think if rubio -- >> as he said he will. >> as he said he probably would and i think definitely would. do kasich and cruz continue to split the remaining vote. trump's support is very, very firm. trump's support does not seem to dip throughout these things but the question it doesn't grow. >> does all of this violence firm it up, as gayle suggested? or does it at some point call people to say -- >> i think it's calling a lot of people to say that. i don't think these are the hard-core trump supporters that gotten him to this point and propel him to the nomination if the numbers keep sustaining itself like this. the big problem for trump this is a reaching out period. this is the time to bring the party together and reach out to swing voters and he is going in the opposite direction. again, it could help him get the nomination with his base but as long as cruz and rubio and ksich are splitting everything else, he's in a pretty solid position. >> so far, the violence does not
7:14 am
appear to be affecting his campaign. >> it doesn't. i think it really does dig people in on his behalf and that helps to some degree. i don't know if this is a calculation. although it seems very much to be in character for him not to be backing down at all and i think that is part of the appeal that has brought him here. >> thank you, mark. more than 17 million americans this morning face a severe weather threat. storm systems are targeting the northeast and the south. flooding in southern states has killed at least six people. four deaths are in louisiana. president obama has issued a disaster declaration for the area. david begnaud is in natchitoches parish. >> reporter: good morning. on the brink but holding right now. there's so much flooding here you can't tell where one bayou starts and the other one ends. along this saline bayou giant sandbags are working but the last 24 hours water seeping through here toward a community of clarence and threatening to drown livestock and flood even more homes.

the chairman of the board is leading the organization as it searches for a permanent chief executive. he had been on the board of directors since 2009, serving as chairman since 2014. a cbs news corporate executive also sits on the board. anthony joins us only on "cbs this morning." good morning. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> tell me why the board made this decision and what else might they do? >> so the board -- after -- after the alleges were raised, it was very important to the board, you know, i knew that some of them didn't properly represent the organization, but it was very important to the board to make sure we knew exactly what the facts were. so we engaged independent advisers to conduct a review, and based on the totality of information, based on our own experiences, and based on the review that we did, as a board, we felt it was best for the organization to make a change in
7:35 am
the leadership. >> what -- >> how did organization know this? why was it necessary for journalism to come in and point out something obvious to the wounded warriors projects? >> a lot of the allegations raised were actually not accurate. the review confirmed that 80% of donations did go to programs. it also confirmed that of the 26 million that was supposedly spent on staff conferences, 94% or almost 24.5 million of that actually went to direct programming for wounded warriors and their families. so a lot of the things that were raised were not accurate. it did uncover some opportunities for us to strengthen some policies, to strengthen some controls around expenses, so we will do that. we also felt that there were certain judgment decisions that could have been made better, which is why we ultimately decided that a change should be made.
7:36 am
>> anthony, just to be specific, i know you say that number. we say only 60% spent on veterans and you're saying 80%. your number includes direct mailers meant to educate the public. is that really investing in our veterans, including the cost for mailers? >> well, raising awareness is a very important part of our mission. it has always been an important part of our mission. i think it's what connects the american people with our service men and women who are coming back. there's a great need out there. wounded warrior project is here to fill that need. they fill that need for me when i was injured in 2004, you get help from a lot of places, from family, from friends. the nonprofit organization that was there for me was wounded warrior project. >> anthony, i know. you lost your arm and wounded warrior project has done so many wonderful things for veterans. there is no doubt about that. but i think the concern that was
7:37 am
raised, first by cbs news and our executive producers. our executive producer talked with people. people tried to raise concerns that they were not listened to or that they were fired. is that culture an issue? >> ultimately, everything you know, part of that did factor into our decision. so as part of our independent review, our advisers also interviewed many current and former employees and other key state and current and former board members, and there were a variety of factors that ended up playing into our decision. and we're very comfortable and confident in our decision and that this is the right thing to do for the organization. now we are going to get the focus solely back on serving our wounded warriors and their caregivers and their family. >> no question during your
7:38 am
investigation, you learned some things too that led you to believe, houston, we have a problem here. so what exactly did you find, anthony, and how did it get so off track, do you think? >> i wouldn't say that it got severely off track. whenever you do the type of review that we did, any organization is going to find something. so we did, as i mentioned, we did find some opportunities to strengthen policies around travel and expenses, and strengthen control so that we can make sure that those policies are being -- >> it is said you're looking for new leadership and it may come from the military ranks? >> i put together a committee to conduct a search for the next ceo. and, absolutely, you know, we are going to consider, you know, any and all candidates that we think will be the best fit for this organization, and we will, you know, keep moving this organization forward and serving
