alert after reports hackers targeted voting systems in illinois and arizona. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas joins us from washington, d.c. with all the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, amy. the fbi is increasingly concerned about the potential of a cyberattack in the coming november election. following those attacks in arizona and illinois, the fbi sent out a bulletin calling on states to check for suspicious activity. arizona election officials are saying the attack on that state may have been based in russia and comes amid suspicions that russian intelligence officials were behind a recent hack against a democratic national committee, amy. >> pierre, we're hearing from a very powerful u.s. senator who is expressing his grave concerns. >> reporter: yes, senator harry reid, the democratic minority leader from nevada wrote a letter to the fbi director expressing concern that russian intelligence officials may be targeting the election. he tries to implicate the trump campaign but that will surely be
7:05 am
and his surrogate. >> pierre thomas with the latest from d.c., thank you. we move on to that bombshell involving hillary clinton's closest aide, huma abedin announcing she's separating from her husband amid reports of another sexting scandal, the third one for weiner who is forced to resign from congress five years ago when the first secreta ones became public. >> reporter: sources tell me hillary clinton's closest aide has been with her family and her boss in the hamptons where clinton has been fund-raising. her son right there with her. this announcement of the separation did not come as a surprise to people close to abedin. as you said this is the third time in five years anthony weiner finds himself at the center of some very embarrassing headlines. just about as soon as this tabloid cover hit newsstands huma abedin hit send on a statement announcing her split from anthony weiner saying after long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, i have made the decision to separate from my husband.
7:06 am
weiner of sexting with a woman while his young son was next to him in bed. it comes after a sexting stand dag in 2011 that forced him to resign from office. weiner heckled as he made the announcement. >> i'm announcing my resignation from congress. then two years later another sexting scandal. it doomed his bid for mayor. >> let me just reiterate to my wife how sorry i am. >> reporter: behind the scenes -- a documentary filming all the cringe worthy moments. >> it's like having a nightmare. >> reporter: but in front of the cameras abedin stood by her man. >> i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. >> reporter: sources tell abc news the couple has been estranged for months. their last known public outing in may on the red carpet at the met gala. abedin, hillary clinton's closest aide, has been in the cl
7:07 am
decades. she and weiner even married by the former president. donald trump turning the separation into a political attack. >> he's a pervert and just a very sick guy and she's married to him. >> reporter: calling it an issue of national security. >> huma abedin has access to classified information. it's very likely that much of this information anthony weiner would know about. >> reporter: well, you heard donald trump there. he is not holding back so is the clinton campaign worried that this will be a distraction for them? they don't seem to be, george, one source telling me huma has to do what's best for her and her family. >> let's talk about it with matthew dowd. the clinton campaign, a personal issue, painful for huma abedin but you saw donald trump pouncing on it there. how deep does this cut. >> there are so many things to say about this and to quote gene wilder as willy wonka there is no earthy way of knowing which
7:08 am
going. >> you almost sang that. >> i mean it's hard to fault huma once you married to quagmire from "the family guy," it is a problem for the hillary clinton campaign because in the course of the whole thing, voters look at this, not hillary supporters and trump supporters aren't going to like it but sort of independents look at it and say do we really want to go back to all this again? we really have to draw a line around her private life and this is her husband. >> meantime, donald trump continues to be bedeviled about issues about race and saw david duke, the former clan member talking about supporting trump and trump disavowed that and has a pastor tweeting hillary clinton in black face, yet, we've seen from some of the recent polls he appears to at least stop the bleeding. >> when you take a look at the average of the polls he's almost where he was preconvention when he took a hit and made the 34is takes. this is a race
7:09 am
or five-point race which won't be changed fundamentally until the debates. >> you have reports of russian involvement in the elections. this could create a real crisis of confidence in whatever the outcome is. >> 2000, there was a sense there wasn't a legitimate president-elected because of what happened in florida, we're back in that same case again. if people feel russia is involved many will look at the aftermath and not accept it. >> thanks very much. now to two close calls on planes. a passenger trying to open a door in midair and another flight greeted by emergency crews after a suspicious item was spotted on board that plane. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with those details. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. in that first incident the calmness of an alaska flight attendant is cited as a situation that was happening at more than 30,000 feet in the air. new video this morning of the man taken off an alaska airlines jet after he tried to open a door reportedly during flight. >> he said he needed to cancel his flight and get off

7:12 am
and i feel like that flag represents what it should i'll stand. >> reporter: while the nfl does not require its players to stand for the anthem, kaepernick says he won't actively recruit his teammates to follow suit and in what could be seen as a truce, team leaders at the 49ers have agreed not to openly criticize him. the same can't be said for former teammates like alex boone whose brother is a marine. >> you have to show respect. it's shameful. >> reporter: kaepernick said he would encourage others to join him but his anthem sit-in has attracted followers. mike tavares said he will sit out the national anthem. kaepernick says he's committed to boycotting "the star-spangled banner" for the rest of the season. >> thank you. now to a search for answers after a murder on cornell university's ivy league campus. a

7:35 am
been -- the media has taken this to a whole new level and i just want to put this behind me and move on and move forward and i think, you know, the rest of the world wants that too. i mean we've been talking about this way too long and there's other bigger issues that this world is facing. >> your teammate james feigan settled with authorities and paid more than $10,000. have you thought about paying him back since you took the lead on the lie and do you plan on paying anything to the brazilian government? >> like i said, my legal team, they're dealing with it and whatever happens happens. and i reached out to jimmy saying i know you had to pay that fine. you know, it is my fault. i'm taking full responsibility for this and i will pay that back if he will let me. so -- >> what have you said to your other teammates? have you reached out to them. >> i reached out to er

7:38 am
i'm human. i made a mistake. a very big mistake and it's something that i learned from and i know that that will never happen again. >> "dancing with the stars," you actually agreed to be a part of the show before this incident happened. but now that you've dealt with the incident and still dealing with the backlash do you still feel like it's a good idea to put yourself out there on a reality tv show while you're still legally dealing with this, financially dealing with this and emotionally dealing with this? >> the emotional part is the hardest thing. it's been the past two weeks have been like the lowest point of my life and it's been really hard but like the fans, my family, my friends, they've all been really positive, keeping me going and that's what i want to do and this is perfect with the show because i want to put that behind me. i'm never the one to dwell on the past. i just want to mov

welcome back. time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this
7:42 am
sunny hostin for our first story. it is a doozy. the disturbing video that is getting hundreds of thousands of views online. you can see why. it shows a 4-year-old tossed off a bridge as his mother watches from the river below. take a look. [ screaming ] >> oh. >> you can actually hear the boy screaming as he plunges 27 feet into that water. the boy's mother reportedly is also heard there cheering as an acquaintance throwing her son from the bridge and later playing it off as fun. thankfully the little boy is okay and, sunny, we know that he was shaken up but authorities are investigating and we can all see why. what do you think should happen. >> i'm looking at george. >> this is crazy. >> horrific. >> it's horrific. the bottom line is he has to be taken out of the home at this point. a full-scale investigation by child protective services. i think his mother s
7:43 am
certainly child abuse. you look at that and you think society now has to step in and take care of this little boy because his mother doesn't know how to do it. >> the investigation still going on. amy and i were talking before and remember the story, last week we had the story of two kids, their mom left them alone for 45 minutes and charged with a misdemeanor. a lot of give and take of these laws that vary state by state. >> especially when it comes to parents. i think the parents should be held to a higher standard. if we saw a baby-sitter tossing this 4-year-old boy off a bridge or a stranger, that person would be sitting in jail right now but now that we're talking about his mother, she is just free sort of walking around. i think the rue of thumb when it comes to parenting is what you can't do to an adult you can't do to a child. you can't beat an adult. you can't throw a kid -- an adult off of a bridge. you can't do it to a kid. >> it's a great rule. just stunning, stunning video. thank you, sunny, very much. that big headline from
7:44 am
for employees, full benefit, 75% of a 40-hour worker's pay and rebecca jarvis is here to talk about it. we know some european countries adopted shorter workweeks. why is amazon taking this on now? >> because it sounds great, george. that's why. this makes the company -- it's a great, great bit of news for the company and maybes them sound more competitive. it also makes them more attractive to mothers and these companies, the amazons of the world are trying to attract a different group of employees. also, some out there are speculating maybe this is in reaction to the story from "the new york times" last year that criticized the work environment at amazon, maybe that's the case but amazon says this is a pilot program. they're trying it out with a small group and maybe if it works out with a small group they'll expand it into the rest of the company. >> sounds good, rebecca. thank you so much. to a fascinating new study about music at work. take a listen to this. ♪ i'm walking on sunshine whoa ♪

[ cheers and applause ] >> yeah, we'll win this mirror ball trophy. >> he's got a big smile. cheryl, maks is com
8:36 am
you all at home can find out all the dancing pairings by going to our website. we'll have the whole cast here on september 7th. you got to go back to work. >> let's do that. i just want to dance all day but let's go ahead and start with colorado. want to see hail, why not? yes, that's it. colorado springs had that hail, the flash flooding, one to even four inches of rain falling very, very quickly. now we have flood watches from west texas up through missouri. and that rainfall going to be trapped and smashed there. don't you love when i talk weather, val. >> i love weather. >> he learned so much. all right. night & thursday - beautiful labor day weekend - watching tropics; rip current risk at the beaches this weekend today: mostly sunny. hot, but not terribly humid. highs: 88-92 tonight: mainly clear. lows: 63-69 >> good luck, gu.
8:37 am
on both side, all that weather brought to you by tempur-pedic. >> i'm excited about vanilla ice. the chances of "ice, ice baby" on the dance floor. spend low or yolo. you only live once. we are breaking down a beauty item that most of us use. deodorant. does spending big bucks make a big difference? becky worley is back with some refreshing news. take a look. >> reporter: drugstore deodorant. it costs a few buck, you swipe it on after a shower and that's it, right? wrong. deodorant is a $4 billion business and growing. today designers are getting into the odor control mix. donna karan $25 cashmere mist and tom ford's neroli portofino. 50 bucks for deodorant? the brands that advertise as natural are selling faster than ever and come in cream, wipe, even primal pit paste. it ain't cheap either and can cost double your druto
8:38 am
variety. some costing as much as $18. to learn more we head to the princeton consumer testing labs where this man has 20 years in the deodorant business. >> i sniff under people's armpits. >> reporter: you heard it correctly. >> you hold your arms up. i would apply the sniffer here and then -- oh, lord. >> wow. >> reporter: did that just happen? okay, poor barry has possibly the worst job in america. but -- does an expensive deodorant do something different than less expensive brands? >> people think that and pay a lot more for a product it's going to be so much better, that is just not the case at all. >> reporter: barrie explains they don't prevent you from sweating but absorb odor and masks it. what you're paying for is that scent like a high-end perfume. so with these deodorants -- >> you will still sweat but the smell will be cont
8:39 am
preveepts sweat in the first place rather than masking its odor forget deodorant and try an anti-percent pi rant. >> it clogs the pores that produce the sweat. >> reporter: he points to drugstore anti-percespirant bras that contain aluminum. some people pay more for great smelling deodorant, the expert's advice to preventing odor in the first place, anti-perspirant. >> go to the box and pay $5 to $10. >> reporter: the nose knows. >> wow. he went right in there, becky. here with products. >> oh, my gosh. >> wow, that has to be one of the worst jobs in america. i have to imagine. >> listen -- >> no quantitative scientific test for smelling. you have to subjectively smell. >> this is not smell-o-vision. the expensive ones and drugstore brands. >>ak
8:40 am
>> not really. >> listen, deodorant is about scent so if you're spending $400 bucks for three ounces of tom ford's cologne you're probably going to shell out another 50 to keep the smell going. >> if i'm going to be $50, it better cook dinner for me too. work it, though. >> one of the things that's interesting is deodorants are generally all in the same classification is that they mask odor. anti-perspirants prevent sweating and that also if you add in a deodorant also in addition will help to mask odor so what barrie said anti-perspirants are more effective. they have aluminum. they have different time release sort of methodologies and so you might want to try different brands to see which one works for you. >> mix it up. make sure this natural brand says whatever you get, make sure that it is an elite assassin of odor. that's what you're looking for everyone.
8:41 am
>> assassinate that ode dore. >> am i okay? >> i'm okay. >> coming up, emeril lagasse is here. he's going to take us around the globe with his delicious dishes next. quite a
