7:03 am
national mall with the outlook of the next big punch. >> reporter: good morning. some people spent six, even eight hours in their cars and others stuck overnight and had to sleep in their cars. th a we are waiting up to two feet to come to the national mall. all it took last night was about, oh, an eighth tenth of an inch of snow to paralyze the region. car crashes. slick streets. and crowded roads. made driving nearly impossible in washington, d.c. last night. gridlocking roads until after midnight. more than 160 accidents in the area turned the nation's capital into a mess. >> i thought that i was going to make it up the hill and then i realized a lot of other people thought the same thing, and here we are. >> reporter: cars that weren't
7:04 am
sliding, were left stranded. >> that's the road. therare people stuck everywhere. >> reporter: less than an inch and a half of snow was enough to turn quick commutes into marathon trips to nowhere. >> as you can see, they didn't treat the roads and this is what i'm dealing with. >> reporter: major highways were brought to a standstill as frustrated drivers were angry. the region was unprepared for light snow! >> the traffic, i've been in traffic three hours to get home. ridiculous. i don't understand why they didn't prepare. >> it's been like this for about an hour now. >> reporter: even president obama couldn't escape the severe weather. his motorcade skidded and slogged its way through traffic along with the rest of d.c. commuters. the mayor's office admitted this storm, before the storm, caught the district off-guard. late last night, the city launched an additional 100 salt trucks to help clear roads. school districts across the region are either delayed or canceled morning.
7:05 am
d.c.'s mayor is expected at a press conference to talk about storm preparations later today. you can bet she is going to get some tough questions. >> we feel your pain there. thank you, kris. snow and freezing rain in tennessee created icy roads. police responded to several crashes along major highways yesterday. drivers were stuck with their wheels spinning in cunningkentucky. plows are busy after several inches of snow fell there. school is closed and kids like that. more snow is on the way. lonnie quick, our meteorologist -- lonnie quick. >> i will be quick! >> all right, mr. quinn! >>. >> now i'm down to 45 seconds for this cap. let's get to the watches and warnings. a wig swath from arkansas all the way into new jersey and look at this. a blizzard watch in effect for the d.c. area. also for new york city out to
7:06 am
storm right now, just not very impressive looking but, today, is the key day in the formation of this storm because, today is the day it drops down to the gulf of mexico and gathers that moisture and pushes up to the northeast. now, you got to be careful in north carolina because if this pushes through it's going to be dropping down a lot of ice and then turns to snow as it goes further to the north. snowfall totals are still pretty darn impressive with this thing. i think the bull's-eye is washington, d.c. you can see a foot of snow outside of new york city into portions of virginia and west virginia and the bull's-eye, again, with a foot to two feet of snow and maybe more than that around washington, d.c. into virginia and into west virginia. i don't know if there is a rivalry between the university of virginia and charlottesville. >> the latest presidential poll finds donald trump's main rival is gaining support in new hampshire. trump holds a commanding 20-point lead over the field but

7:08 am
>> reporter: palin's oldest son track, an iraq war veteran, was arrested on domestic violence and weapons charges earlier this week. palin linked the assault to post-traumatic stress and used the moment to take a shot at president obama. >> my son, like so many others, they come back a bit different. they come back hardened. it starts from the top. the question, though, that comes from our own president, where they have to look at him and wonder do you know what we go through? >> reporter: republican elder statesmen bob dole, the 1996 presidential nominee, also signaled a preference for trump, especially if the only other alternative was cruz. i question his allegiance to the party, dole said about cruz. nobody likes him. cruz dismissed dole's comments as establishment criticism. >> hello, everybody. wow! >> reporter: a sign they are ditching other candidates for trump. >> right now, the washington establishment is abandoning marco rubio. it may be assessment that marco can't win this race and the washington establishment is
7:09 am
trump. >> reporter: in iowa and new hampshire republican voters haven't chosen a candidate. a new poll shows half republicans are still making up their minds. these votes could be up for grabs like john kasich and chris christie who both believe if they finish a strong second in new hampshire they will attract the momentum and media attention necessary to incredibly chase the nomination. >> thank you. the democrats are fighting over the party establishment this morning. polls show bernie sanders gaining ground against hillary clinton. nancy cordes is in des moines, iowa. where sanders is putting new pressure on clinton. >> reporter: we have reached the point in this campaign where the smallest slight can become a campaign issue. last night here in iowa, hillary clinton took umbridge at a stray comment from bernie sanders and
7:10 am
>> i was somewhat confused when senator sanders said human rights campaign is part of the establishment. i wish it were. i wish we weren't fighting all the time to protect women's rights and to protect women's health. >> reporter: clinton was responding to sanders who said this when asked why planned parenthood endorsed her, not him. >> hillary clinton has been around there for a very, very long time. it's from these groups are, in fact, part of the establishment. >> reporter: sanders is trying to position himself as an clinton camp says he is too far outside. >> i think the term socialist doesn't make it easier to win. >> reporter: kentucky governor argued wednesday that putting a ticket would hurt democrats down the ballot in november. new york congressman steve israel. >> a place to carry the socialist barn. no question about it. i'm not particularly concerned that in certain districts the banner you want to parade it.
7:11 am
>> reporter: clinton backers said his past positions would make sanders an easy target to republicans. in the '70s, sanders favored 100% tax on income over a million dollars. at the cbs debate, sanders joked he has backed off that position -- a bit. >> we haven't come up with an exact number yet but not be as high as the number under dwight d. eisenhower which was under 90% but i'm not that shmuch of a eisenhower. >> polls show sanders would do better against top republicans this clinton were. her team argues that is just because she is the one taking all of the incoming fire from republicans, a sign, they argue, the republicans still view her as a tougher opponent in the fall. >> nancy, thanks. a british judge this morning, said russia's president likely approved the killing of a
7:12 am
a new report said alexander litvinenko died in london after drinking poisonous tea in 2006. charlie d'agata is in london with more. >> reporter: alexandra litvinenko was deliberately poisoned and assassinated was never in question but this goes further and says his killers must have taken orders from the top, meaning president putin's russia, that can only be one man. on his death bed, he told his wife, putin did it. this morning, almost a decade after his murder, judge robert owen confirmed rusch's secret service fsb and putin were likely to blame. >> the fsb to kill mr. lit vennen ko was probably approved mr. kovtun head of the fsb and also by president putin.
7:13 am
>> reporter: the former agents fled to britain in 2000 having become an outspoken critic of vladimir putin and his inner circle. this hotel in 2006 he met two russian com raids for tea who allegedly slipped peja stojakovic into his sea point. andrei lugovoi and dmitry kovtun are back in russia. litvinenko became deadly ill. he was poisoned by an highly reactive and toxic poison. the two suspects they are still trying to extradite. they found it was the second time they tried to poison litvinenko. >> michigan's governor is under fire after null released e-mails about the lead water crisis in flint. under pressure, governor rick snyder's office released
7:14 am
hundreds of pages yesterday. in one e-mail his then chief of staff writes of the toxic water, i can't figure out why the state is responsible. tests have shown dozens of children with elevated lead levels. adriana diaz is in flint with an inside look at the response to the contamination. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the governor released 274 pages of e-mails and documents late wednesday. one by an aide said that other state official are worried about people in flint turning this issue into a political football. but these e-mails don't change the reality for the people living here. they can't drink the tap water and depend on bottled water to survive. in september 25th e-mail to governor snyder, his chief of staff ro the real responsibilities rests with the county, city, and kwa referring to a water authority. he continued and since the issue here is of the health of citizens and their children we are taking a pro active approach.
7:15 am
days after that e-mail the governor announced the severity of the city's water problem after he he said he received confirmation of lead contamination. are these e-mails enough? >> no. >> reporter: this man lost re-election in november. >> too little here to tell. this is missing a whole year and it's missing all of the key public officials of the state level who were involved. >> reporter: when flint started drawing water from the flint river in 2014, the improperly treated water stripped lead from pipes. the city stopped tapping into the flint fliver october and lead levels have gone down but during an interview yesterday with scott pelley, governor current lead levels are. >> what is the number? >> i don't have the number at the time top of my head of the very latest data. and it varies by points in the city. >> i would think the governor of michigan would have the numbers at the top of his mind right now. >> until they are in a range that is considered safe, i don't
7:16 am
actually want to get into the issue of by zip code or by street. >> reporter: president obama addressed the crisis in an interview for this weekend's sunday morning program. >> once people figured out that there was a problem there and there was lead in the water, the notion that immediately families weren't notified, things weren't shut down, that shouldn't happen anywhere. >> reporter: every single person we have spoken to here says that what they want is brand-new pipes. until then, this remains flint's cleanest water source. >> you can see lee cowen's full interview with president obama this weekend on "sunday morning" on cbs. thousands of students in detroit plan to be back in school today. a massive teachers sick-out on wednesday caused the schools to close.

7:40 am
this election is on track to break all spending records. it could likely cost several billion dollars by the end of last year, presidential campaigns and outside groups supporting them raised more than $600 million. between the candidates, super pacs and other committees, that number is going to explode. funded in part from donors. but with all of those groups asking for money, it can be confusing. julianna goldman is in washington with a cbs news
7:41 am
it's important for donors to do their homework. >> reporter: behind every political solicitation, there is an entire industry of consultants who hunt for donors but times they few vars actually make it to specific candidates. now this technically isn't illegal because, believe it or not no law is requiring pacs to spend money on election reason related purposes. >> a lot of people were older. >> reporter: kristina and c.j were paid. >> whatever the number, whatever you felt like you could work out of them. >> reporter: they worked for this milwaukee-based telemarketing firm called american liberty group. public records show it was paeds 400,000 by a political action committee called conservative strike force. zubic said one donor said he was supervisor for guidance. >> why didn't you tell him this is an opportunity to give one big last donation. >> reporter: give one last big
7:42 am
donation before he dies? >> yes. >> reporter: american liberty also solicited money from veterans on behalf of conservative strike force. cbs news obtained this script saying, can strikeforce count on your support of our veterans during these important times? but we couldn't find any money going to veterans causes. we looked at federal records and found since 2011, conservative strike strikeforce and other pacs raised over $33 million large from republican retirees but only 8% went to the causes they claimed to support. the rest went to a group of companies who used those donations to make more money. is it a scam? >> oh, no question. you just can't say an organization out there that is spending 95% of its money just to raise more money and never has any intention of doing the things it's telling the people that it's talking to that it will do, you can't call that anything else. >> reporter: former virginia attorney general ken cuccinelli was the 2012 republican
7:43 am
candidate for governor. conservative strike force used his name in the fund-raising pitches without his approval. he said they made false promises to voters so he sued them. >> they listed four things. they didn't do any of those things. >> reporter: so when donors give to conservative strikeforce, where does the money go? the pac, as well as six others have the same treasurer. a man named scott mckenzie and have the same address 37. p.o. bochltx 806 at this u.p.s. store. mackenzie is paid to be the treasurer of all of these different pacs. >> reporter: mackenzie wouldn't speak on camera and says he doesn't have any current ties to the vendors. he says as treasurer for a total of 25 pacs, he takes all of the heat for decisions that other people make.
7:44 am
already in this election cycle, donald trump asked mackenzie to shut down his unauthorized group patriots for trump. mackenzie said he will imy. in the meantime this former telemarketer in milwaukee had some advice. >> don't give anything over the phone phone. if you want to support something, go to the website of that organization you want to support and, and i'm sorry. i'm sorry for my part in that. >> reporter: kristina and c.j. both felt because they felt uncomfortable with what was happening. we asked mackenzie about the causes for veteran causes and said they were test calls and no money was raised. kristina verified payments but doesn't remember how much. already in 2016 some of mackenzie pacs have report spending hundreds of thousands of dollars largely from contacting voters across the country. >> wow. kite an investigation. really disturbing. did you find, are these limited to conservatives or does this also happen on the left too? >> reporter: while these kind of
7:45 am
scams are most prevalent on the right it's not limited to conservative causes. bernie sanders campaign sent a cease and desist letter to a man running an attack and running sanders campaign and that man is connected to eight other pacs. a family connection to the white house will not land one very high profile graduation speaker.
