ringing. your inbox starts filling up. you've never been more popular in your life. all these schools want you to enroll with them. and it sounds good. every school and every business should be out there competing for your skills and your talent and your leadership. everything that you've shown in uniform. but as some of your comrades have discovered, sometimes you're dealing with folks who aren't interested in helping you. they're not interested in helping you find the best program. they are interested in getting the money. they don't care about you, they care about the cash. so they harass you into making a quick decision with all those calls and e-mails. if they can't get you online, they show up on post. one of the worst examples of this is a college recruiter who had the nerve to visit the baracks at camp lee juat june a
enroll marines with brain injuries just for the money. they had brain injuries so severe some of them couldn't recall what courses the recruiter had signed them up for. that's appalling. that's disgraceful. it should never happen in america. i'm not talking about all schools. many of them for-profit and nonprofit provide quality education to our service members and our veterans and their families, but there are some bad actors out is there. they'll say you don't have to pay a dige for your degree but once you register they will suddenly make you sign up for a high-interest student loan. they'll say that if you transfer schools, you can transfer credits but when you actually try to do that, you suddenly find out that you can't. they'll say they've got a job placement program when, in fact, they don't. it's not right. they're trying to swindle and hoodwink you, and today here at
ft. stewart, we're going to put an end to it. [ applause ] we're putting an end to it. the executive order i'm about to sign will make life a whole lot more secure for you and your families and our veterans and a whole lot tougher for those who try to prey on you. here is what we're going to do. first, we're going to require colleges that want to enroll members of our military or veterans or your families to provide clear information about their qualifications and available financial aid. you'll be able to get a simple fact sheet called know before you owe. know before you owe. and it will lay out all the information that you need to make your own choices about how best to pay for college. second, we're going to require those schools to step up their support for our students. they need to provide a lot more
counseling. if you've got to move because of a deployment or a reassignment, they've got to help you come up with a plan so you can still get your degree. [ applause ] number three, excuse me, number thr three, we're going to bring an end to the aggressive and sometimes dishonest recruiting that takes place. we're going to up our oversight of improper recruitment practices. we're going to strengthen the rules about who can come on post and talk to service members. and we're going to make it a lot easier for all of you to file complaints and for us to take action when somebody is not acting right. this is about making sure you succeed because when you succeed, our country succeeds. it's that simple.
after all, at the end of the world war ii, so many americans like my grandfather came home to new opportunities because the originalg i bill by 1947, half of all americans that enrolled in college were veterans. and you know what? they did pretty well. they rose to become presidents and supreme court justices and nobel prize winners. they went on to become scientists and engineers and doctors and nurses. 8 million americans were educated under the original gi bill and together they forged the backbone of what would become the largest middle class that the world had ever seen. they built this country. they turned us into that economic super power. and we can do it again. we face tough times. we've gone through the worst recession since the great depression. two wars. but you know what? we faced tough times before.
and all of you know something that america should never forget. just as you rise or fall as one unit, we rise or fall as one nation. just as you have each other's backs, what's always made america's great is we have each other's backs. each of us is only here because somebody looked out for us. not just our parents but our neighbors and our communities and our houses of worship and our vfw halls. each of us is here because we had a country that was willing to invest in things like community colleges and universities and scientific research and medicine and caring for our veterans. each of us is only here because somebody somewhere had our backs. this country exists because generations of americans worked
together and looked out for one another. out of many we are one. those are the values we've got to return to. if we do, there's nothing this country cannot achieve. there's no challenge that's too great for us. there's no destiny beyond our reach. as long as we're joined in common purpose and common resolve, better days will always lie ahead and we will remind everybody why the united states of america is the greatest country on earth, and as i look out at this sea of incredible men and women, it gives me confidence that our best days are still ahead. god bless you, god bless our armed services, god bless the third division, god bless the united states of america. thank you very much. [ cheers and applause ] >> president obama and the first lady there at ft. stewart in
georgia speaking before the troops. we are following another story. john edwards' attorneys now looking very closely at potentially what would be -- i'm sorry. we first want to bring another story. we're going to go to the john edwards story in a moment but we want to talk about a philadelphia man that was adopted 30 years ago. he was recently discovered that he is on a missing persons list. it turns out that his biological father had been looking for him all these years. the mother disappeared with the son, never came back. so check out the missing persons picture. this is the picture steve carter discovered of himself on the national center for missing and exploited children's website. that's what the center thought carter might look like at age 28 based on his baby picture. when carter saw the picture, he contacted his father on the phone. i spoke with him just within the last hour. what did you think when you first saw that photo and you
recognized yourself? >> i thought minus the mullet it was pretty much spot on on what i looked like. >> how did you react to that? >> it was a bit shocking i have to tell you to see yourself and to realize that, you know what? people have been looking for you for that long. i was shell shocked. >> i understand that you actually went, this led to your real father. tell me about how you approached him, how you found him, and how he reacted to you. >> i actually -- it took a while for all the blood tests to come back and for me to be confirmed as mark moriarity barnes. when it did come back, i was a little hesitant to really go forward with the news. i have known since about october of 2011, didn't really do anything with it. you know, really wanted to figure out what i wanted to do and how i wanted to go forward with it. it's a lot of information and it can be quite emotional. so decided to take my time and slowly over the months worked up the idea that i'd give my
biological father a call. also my half sister. so february of this year i reached out to both of them. >> how did they respond to you? tell us about that moment your father actually realized that you weren't missing anymore. >> there were a lot of awkward pauses, as well there probably should be. it was a big announcement for both of us. it was a life changing event i would say. you know, we talked about me growing up, what i do now, what he did. it was very eye-opening. >> steve's real mother is still on a missing person's list. he's been in contact with his half sister as well. john edwards' attorneys are going after the former campaign aide for a third day. they are grilling andrew young. the prosecutor's star witness trying to convince jurors that he is not to be trusted. edwards is accused of illegally using nearly $1 million in
campaign cash to hide a sexual affair. diane dimond is a special correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast. she's been in the courtroom since the beginning of the trial. first of all, tell us anything new stand out in your mind in terms of how andrew young is holding up after several days of this pretty intense questioning. >> reporter: oh, it's been brutal at times actually, suzanne. i'll tell what you, it's like he had a five-hour energy right before he hit the witness stand today. this is first day i ever saw andrew young take the stand in the morning and then we wait for the jury to come in and whatnot, and he looked over at john edwards, first time, and he's been on the stand all week long. then when abbe lowell started to question him, it was like there was a different kind of witness on the stand. instead of saying, i don't know, i don't remember, i don't recall, he just shot back the answers to abbe lowell. i think that lowell was actually kind of taken aback by this new
andrew young. it was really quite stunning. i have to tell you. i don't know what happened overnight but something did. >> tell us about, you say andrew young actually turned to john edwards. what was that exchange like when you said that they flashed each other a look. >> reporter: well, you know, i have noticed that every time andrew young comes into the court, his head is down, and he deliberately doesn't look at anybody. he doesn't look at the jury, he doesn't look at john edwards. he hardly even looks at the federal prosecutors and he's their key witness. so today he just seemed a lot looser, and there was a moment where he looked over at john edwards and i looked to see if edwards was looking and he was, but then edwards looked right down. it's a small little moment in a big, long trial, but to me it told me that edwards -- i'm sorry, that young got some new sort of impetus overnight. his attorney was not here in the courtroom with him yesterday.
i guess he had to go back to washington or something. so maybe he felt ill at ease yesterday when there were so many, i don't know, i don't recall, but today there were -- at one point, for example, beab lowell said to him your version of the truth, and young jumped in and said my version of the truth? it is the truth. it is the truth, sir. and that was in such stark response. >> describe for us the relationship between these two men, andrew young and john edwards and some of the personal e-mails, what are being revealed there. because i believe there was a moment when he asked about whether or not he had fallen in love with john edwards and whether or not he was still in love with him. >> yeah. you know, abbe lowell is doing is good job of putting in the jury's mind the fact that andrew young was a sink co-fant, that he glommed onto edwards early on.
andrew young would tell you he was enthralled with john edwards and everything he stood for early on. abbe lowell says he was a ap tu opportunist and, in fact, actually fell in love with him. at one point he said in effect, you felt spurned by him and now you despise him, and andrew young had to admit. he said, yes, yes, i do despise him now after all the things i have been through the last few years. one of the things he said today, suzanne, made me sit up and remember all the interviews i have done with andrew young in the past before he had to clam up, and it was that he and his family have been affected by john edwards' request that he claim paternity since 2006. now, that's many years ago. in 2006 they gathered up their three children, they hit the road, they went to colorado and california, back to colorado, back to another part in california, and their lives have
never been the same. and at one point in the proceeding today, i'm going to read you a little quote, he was talking about the last time he ever talked with john edwards. he said, it was a surreal meeting. john edwards hadn't spoken to him in a long time. he called him out to his property in chapel hill, and they drove for about ten minutes down country roads. he said, i was really scared at that point. i didn't know what to expect. and abbe lowell said, what, did you expect he was going to do you physical harm? and he said, well, it crossed my mind or maybe tape record me. and then he said, isn't it true that you are just mad at him and you're still angry at him, and he said, listen, when we went into hiding, quote, my father was dying. we were not allowed to communicate with anyone. we moved to california. he completely abandoned us, and we had done everything he had told us to do. i was extremely angry. but when he said it, it was a
new andrew young, and i saw the jury lean forward like they were really listening. >> clearly, their relationship really at the heart of this matter, whether or not you believe andrew young's story, whether or not you believe john edwards' story. diane, thank you so much. really appreciate the details. we're going to have to leave it there. here is a rundown of some of the stories we're facing. the secret service faces a third possible scandal involving prostitutes. hear why a brazilian woman is suing the u.s. government. and he became notorious for crashing a white house state dinner. now businessman tariq salahi is running for governor of virginia. we're going to talk to him. and then priscilla presley now the godmother of a paddle wheel steam boat. g. peter. i can see that you're busy... but you were gonna help us crunch the numbers for accounts receivable today. i mean i know that this is important. well, both are important. let's be clear. they are but this is important too.
[ man ] the receivables. [ male announcer ] michelin knows it's better for xerox to help manage their finance processing. so they can focus on keeping the world moving. with xerox, you're ready for real business. we're going to talk to him. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. monarch of marketing analysis. with the ability to improve roi through seo all by cob. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above,
the skandal over secret service agents using prostitutes lead to new rules of conduct. agents on the job will no longer be allowed to go to places of so-called bad acts or bring foreigners into their hotel rooms. the investigation into bad behavior by agents is expanding as authorities now looking into new allegations. we have details from brian todd. >> reporter: a congressional source tells cnn reports of misbehavior beyond the colombia incident have been brought to congress. kiro tv cites a u.s. government contractor who worked extensively with the secret service advance team saying he was with about a dozen secret service agents and some u.s. military personnel a few days before president obama's visit to el salvador last year. the source says they were at a strip club where members of the american team drank heavily, that most of them paid extra for access to a vip section where they were provided sexual favors
in return for cash. this is from one unnamed source and cnn cannot independently confirm the allegations. the secret service issued a statement saying any information brought to our attention that can be assessed as credible will be followed up on in an appropriate manner. i asked defense attorney jeffrey jacobowitz -- are you nervous right now? >> if you're the head of the agency you're very nervous. this is the kind of publicity you do not want. >> reporter: "the washington post" reported an unnamed source reported such behavior is part of the culture, no the a one time occurrence. barbara rigs, the first woman deputy director in the agency's history, denies that. >> i have been on advance teams, i have supervised advance teams, and i have worked, you know, on presidential detail on two different occasions and i have never witnessed anything of this magnitude. >> reporter: the secret service is hardly alone.
in december of last year in the brazilian capital three u.s. marines and a state department employee were involved in an altercation over payment with dancers and prostitutes from a club. one woman allegedly started a fight inside a marine's vehicle. according to the pentagon she was removed from the car and was injured when she tried to get back in. >> those that were involved have been punished and held accountable. >> reporter: the marines were reduced in rank. the u.s. embassy staffer removed from that post. i asked jacobovitz could it be used as a defense if there was a culture in government agencies, if this behavior was widely tolerated. >> it's not a good defense. it's like the foreign corrupt practices act. where companies say everybody is bribing foreign officials, we're doing it also. >> brian todd joins us live. you have been trying to reach some of those agents who are sukts of this investigation. have you had any luck? >> reporter: not yet. we called and e-mailed lawrence berger the attorney for some
secret service officers investigated to ask about this. we have not heard back from him. we have heard from a lot of former secret service officers in recent days. one of the things they told us that the agency basically drill it is into their recruits when they're in training not to place themselves into these situations. they're offering at least some of the defense of what the agency does. you have got an independent body investigating them. people want answers. there's all sorts of speculation that maybe some of the agents may come out publicly in the next few days and give their side of the story. i had one former agent tell me basically that short of an assassination or an assassination attempt on a president, it doesn't get any worse than this for the secret service. >> wow. brian, what are you working on for "the situation room" later today? >> just kind of more along the lines on the pressure, suzanne, that the agency is under. peter king, the chairman of the
house homeland security committee, has given the secret service until tuesday to answer a list of 50 questions. i have got a letter from him with these 50 questions, very specific, succinct questions and they're under pressure until tuesday to answer those questions. we're going to take a look at some of the questions, whether they're going to be able to answer some of these, maybe they won't be able to answer some of them. >> we'll be watching "the situation room" later today. thank you. from white house party crasher to the governor's mansion. tariq salahi says he's seriously running for office. is it just a stunt? we're going to ask him up next. i have never encountered such a burning sensation... until i had the shingles. it was like a red rash. like somebody had set a bag of hot charcoal on my neck. i had no idea it came from chickenpox.
appearing on a reality show says his next conquest is elected office. tariq salehi intended a state dinner uninvited, even managed to meet president obama. he says he is now running for governor of virginia. he says he is passionate about politics. he's passionate about virginia, and in his words he's in it to win it. so want to talk to him. tariq salahi joins us from miami. thank you very much for being here. you have done a lot of interviews and television. a lot of people look at you and, quite frankly, they see the background and they see you crashed the white house dinner, you go on this reality show, you're in the middle of a costly divorce playing out on all the tv shows. why should anyone take you seriously as a potential governor? >> hi, suzanne. thanks for having me on. previous to reality tv and hollywood, was real passion was virginia tourism, culture.
this is who i was and it's who i am now again. now that i have closed that cap ter in -- chapter in my life. >> a new life. you look at your recent history here and it does not look like there are a lot of credible accomplishments here. do you think you could be -- people could look at you and say, this is just more publicity, that this is a joke? >> you know, it's not a tv show. it's not a pr stunt. it's very serious. i am in it to win it, as you said. and you know, actually if you look back at my past, i have done things other people said i couldn't do. i remember running for national man of the year for the leukemia limb fymphoma society. i won it. i broke the fund-raising effort. i have a great past and very passionate, as you said, about virginia and virginia agriculture, virginia tourism, and i'm very focused about winning this race. >> let's talk about virginia and some of the real issues that the voters are going to be looking and turning to you if, in fact,
you became the governor. first and foremost is tobacco and there's basically a stipend here to support farmers, subsidies for not growing tobacco. is that something you would support as governor? >> you know, actually it is, because in virginia we wanted to do a lot of things with the virginia tobacco farms that are there and convert them into vineyard space, vineyard land. thomas jefferson is the founder of the american wine industry in virginia, most people don't know that. that would be a great thing to convert some of this land and print vines there. the more wine we make the more taxes that benefit the coffers, that helps teachers, help pave roads. that's a very positive thing. absolutely. >> let's talk a little bit about something that's rather controversial. it was two years ago governor bob mcconnell declared april federal history month in virginia. there's a lot of people that
don't think that's right, that it flies in the face and is potentially racist in some ways. would you support flying the confederate flag and keeping that month? >> well, look, i think governor mcconnell is a great governor, he's done a great job for the commonwealth of virginia. with respect to the confederate flag, that's something that's maybe a passion of his. i will have my own passions. >> what would you do as governor? >> well, i'll tell you many things, but certainly i'm only going to make sure virginia wine is in the governor's mansion exclusively. >> we're not talking about virginia wine. we're talking about the confederate flag. what would you do on that point? >> no, you know, that is part of the history of the commonwealth. there's no question about that. but, no, that's not something -- anything i would focus on and, you know, that's really governor mcdonnell's compassion or focus. as to mine, i will have my own agenda. that's not something i will focus on. >> would you keep the confederate flag, flying the
confederate flag? >> no, no, i wouldn't. >> you wouldn't. >> okay. let's talk a little bit about virginia. it's got the biggest navy base in the world at norfolk. there are 80,000 active duty military, 30,000 civilian employees. the pentagon has real ideas about drawing that base down. as commander in chief of virginia and the national guard, what would you do to help those troops find work, find employment? >> well, you know, i'm not too sure that that's something that needs to be done. you know, i don't see a need to downsize that navy yard in virginia. that's been part of virginia for a long time, and, no, i'm not convinced that's the right thing to do. obviously that's going to be a federal decision on the pentagon level. but certainly if -- >> would you find the federal government on that? if they decide they're going to drawdown the troops and close part of the base there, you would fight the federal government on that? >> look, i'm pro-military. i went to a military academy myself, so i definitely -- i
would definitely do what i can to not let that happen, not see these men and women lose their jobs in norfolk. right now we're just starting our committees and we're starting building our bases here in terms of around my run for governor. so we're just in the beginning phase. we just announced only 24 hours ago, but certainly i'll come back on and i can give you some more ideas that i have to win this governorship. >> the education system in richmond, you're looking a the a $50 million budget cut there. that is a very significant cut. how would you actually cover the costs considering that that is the kind of budget that you're going to have to balance there? where would you get the m unto pay for the indication system? >> again, you know, we're just beginning these exploratory committees. one idea that, in fact, that's been discussed when i was on some various different governors boards, both democrat and republican, was a look at the virginia abc system, our abc
stores and privatizing those possibly. it's something that's been discussed to generate additional revenue for the commonwealth of virginia. there are things like that as an example that can be explored and we can go into generate more income for the commonwealth of virginia. >> i'm sorry, i just lost you there. >> i'm sorry, which part? >> $50 million budget cut. so you were suggesting that you could somehow make up the difference? >> yeah, certainly. through the virginia abc stores that can be done. that's an opportunity. it does exist. it generates a lot of income right now for the commonwealth. a little over $250 million in profit every year and growing. you know, this is an area that certainly can be looked at and get creative in this area. that's just one example of many. >> all right. tariq sa wilahi, thank you very much. we had like to have you back when you have more detailed plans and study a bit more about
guys. come here, come here. [ telephone ringing ] i'm calling my old dealership [ man ] may ford. hi, yeah. do you guys have any crossovers that offer better highway fuel economy than the chevy equinox? no, sorry, sir. we don't. oh, well, that's too bad. [ man ] kyle, is that you? [ laughs ] [ man ] still here, kyle. [ male announcer ] visit your local chevy dealer today. right now, very well qualified lessees can get a 2012 equinox ls for around $229 a month.
tonight when we journalists get a glimpse into hollywood glamour, celebritiecelebrities,n insiders, athletes all get to mix with the president. it's the white house correspondents dinner. we affectionately call it the nerd prom. you never know who you are going to bump into, whether it's karl rove or sarah palin or cee lo or the actor from "the blind side." this year's host is jimmy fallon. i spoke with cedric the entertainer who hosted one year.
>> you get a call from the white house to do this and it's one of those kind of odd calls. i find myself not wanting to answer the call for bill collectors, but, you know, when the white house calls, you just -- you kind of ask a stupid question like right away, like how did y'all get this number? >> did you believe that it was the white house that was actually calling or you did you think somebody was spoofing you? >> i thought -- that was during the time of pranked, you know, with ashton kutcher. i thought they were setting me up. >> i want to play a little clip for our audience here. this is part of your performance. this was when you were talking about former secretary of state condoleezza rice. >> there's two people. you know the name is broken down, there's the condi, the person you see on television with the nice hair and very professional and then there's the leezza. shaets t she's the one with her hair
wrapped up on the phone with her girlfriend watching b.e.t. talking about, girl, ain't that usher fine? look at usher. >> i love that. cedric says he is sure that jimmy kimmel will do a great job. join my colleague don lemon tomorrow night for special coverage of the white house correspondents dinner. he will talk to "snl" cast memb members. we have elvis the king of rock and roll on your minds. there's a new queen in his hometown. we'll take you to memphis. priscilla presley joins us live next.
waterway. the vessel is being christened today by none other than priscilla presley and she's joining us live from memphis. so nice to see you and have you on the show here. i suppose it's very fitting for the american queen to be christened by the former wife of the king of rock and roll. >> i am the godmother to the american queen. it's one of the most elegant, largest steamboat ever built and memphis is very, very proud it's going to be docked here right in front of the famous beale street. you can see it in the background, and it is so elegant and it's like a floating hotel. so we're all very, very excited about this and taking trips down the mississippi river, sights we've never been seen. i talked to the tourists yesterday who just came back from a tour of about seven days,
and they had the best time of their lives. so i'm even thinking about taking this tour myself. >> we certainly hope you take the tour. what do you like most about the american queen? >> well, i think the elegance. it takes you back in time. as you go down the mississippi river, you learn all about the history, the heritage, the culture of life on the mississippi river. you go into the towns, you get off the boat. you walk into the towns. you have a historian on the boat that tells you about the history. the whole culture of our wonderful south heartland that we've never really experienced. most of us travel all over the world, all over the states, and here we have it right in our backyard. a very relaxed, very relaxed journey. you feel like you're back in the victorian ages. they have even a mark twain in the library. i was in the boat yesterday, looked very much like him. tells you all about that history of mark twain and his works and
his life. it's just -- it takes you to the heartland and it's such a history that we tend to forget. you go to vicksburg which is the history of the civil war. i can't say enough about it. it's quite beautiful. people make -- all the people i talked to, i asked did they enjoy the trip. they said they're coming back. >> it is quite stunning. one of the nation's treasures, as you know, graceland, one of the most visited tourist destinations still in the world. what do you think, the fact of your husband's legacy, that it only continues to grow? >> it does continue to grow, and i think, you know, it's just that he gave us so much. he gave us so much that we, you know, from his music to his life to movies to his talent, that we're able to embellish and help that and with new generations. people who come here, we have, i
believe, 10 million visitors that come here in memphis, and it's been -- that has been the place they want to go see first and foremost. there's so much about him that people are interested in. >> what do you think if your husband was alive today, what do you think he'd be listening to? >> what would he be listening to? >> yeah, what kind of music. what kind of artists do you think he would be listening to? >> elvis had an appreciation for all artists and their talent. he loved all music, truly. from rhythm and blues to gospel to pop. obviously rock and roll, and believe it or not, opera. so i think his tastes were so varied that he would be very appreciative. i know bruno mars is great. lady gaga is fascinating. i mean, she's pretty -- and i think he would like her -- she seems to be very moral driven, and that meant a lot to him. so i think it would be quite
varied like it was in his day. >> do you think he would be a fan of hip-hop or rap do you suppose? >> gosh, that's a good question. i think some. i think in some form absolutely. i mean, there's different kinds of rap and hip-hop. i think there would be some that would be interesting. >> what would you -- how do you spend your time now? share something with us. we haven't seen you in a little bit. >> well, i spend a lot of my time, some time here in memphis, some in new york, some in l.a. now that my daughter has moved to england, i spend time there also. so it's usually out of a suitcase. >> all right. well, priscilla presley, so nice to have you on the show. we wish you all the best and congratulations again. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. a bear going to college ends up flying through the air. we're going to show you the pictures next.

about 1.6 million are by chance. a result of thieves putting a random social security number on to a credit card application that just happens to match a person who's no longer alive. another 800,000 are intentional. in most cases, though, banks and credit card issuers are going to take a loss on this type of theft. but if you're managing someone's esta estate, you could be held responsible, so it's important to be on top and vigilant when you're on top of this. >> how do you protect your family? >> you need to protect yourself. you need to report the death to the social security administration immediately. also report it to the banks. cancel the deceased's drivers's license. don't wait weeks. that's too long. keep personal details out of the newspaper. no addresses, no complete date of birth.
finally, keep an eye on things for at least a year after the death. watch out for credit cards, bank accounts, the same way you would your own. even if they've been closed down. make sure there's no paper trail anymore. make sure the bank understands that this person is no longer alive. >> voery quickly. is there anything the government could or should do to make sure this isn't happening. >> they maintain a database called the death master file. in the past, we've heard about cases where people are sde claired accidentally dead. that obviously creates problems. other cases where relatives to the deceased keep getting social security checks even though the person is dead. when it comes to identity problem, part of the problem may be public access to this death master trial. coming up, a lesson of bike safety for city dwellers.

mark o'meara revealed his client pulled in more than $200,000 from a website he created. there wasn't a peep about that when o'meara claimed his client was indigent. zimmerman was not in court today. but o'meara was. this was from his first hearing there. now, he said he didn't learn about the money until just a couple of days ago, wednesday. three days after zimmerman was released after posting 10% of the $150,000 bond. prosecutors here, they want zimmerman's bond raised. and an attorney for trayvon martin's family wants to see it revoked all together. but o'meara still says zimmerman is not a flight risk. the evidence is he had money he didn't choose to leave with. i think it shows not only he's involved in the process, but there are enough people out there who felt it in their hearts that they wanted to support somebody like george and
have given that much money. >> the judge says he wants a little more information about the fundraising before he actually decides whether to hike that bond amount. i want to bring in mark on the case today. >> good to see you. will the judge make zimmerman fork over more money now that he raised $200,000 own the website? >> it's possible. it was already a high bond in light of his financial circumstances. i think a lot of people forget that zimmerman turned himself in. he could have gone to anywhere part of the world before there was an arrest warrant. he could have left the country. there were no requirements that he stay here. he was apparently in touch with florida law enforcement throughout. and when there was a warrant issue, he drove himself in. a flight risk seems a bit of a stretch. the issue of the money does have to be gotten into. >> you don't think the judge will hike the bond?
>> he might hike it a little bit because there's assets that they didn't know about. if he increases it, it's going to be a bit, but he's definitely not going to revoke it in my opinion. >> do you think can if he knew about this it wow made a difference? >> it could have. we don't know that he had it at the time. if you look at the time line, zimmerman only put up his website a short time before he was arrested. so he dependent have access to know what kind of money was in there. i thinked th i think they said they didn't know. then when they were setting up a proper account to monitor and all that, they found out that was there and he disclosed it with transparency, which is exactly what is supposed to be done. i think that -- >> let me just say, we know that mark o'meara has said,
absolutely george zimmerman is indigent. over the week when zimmerman was in jail, he kramed his family was having trouble scraping together the $15,000 together. at the time, was that a lie? >> no, obviously not. even on the court testimony, they didn't know what was in the account. they didn't think there was much in there. i think it's important to note, he was otherwise indigent, meaning the taxpayers in the state of florida were going to be funding his cost for the defense. now they don't have to go to the taxpayers coffers. it can be paid out of private funds. >> you don't think they will try to make him declare ind jend? >> absolutely not. he's no longer indigent. he's now $200,000 richer. >> got it. in terms of the money that's been raised from this website, do you think there will be a requirement to reveal the names of these folks who donated to zimmerman? >> i think not. you know, the martin family also
has a website. it's appropriate for both. the martins have gone through a tremendous tragedy and loss in their lives and they have lawyers that have to be paid for. so apparently there's people providing money to each side. i think that's wholly appropriate. if someone wants to do something with it, whose business is it? >> is it unusual -- >> for the average case, but not a high publicity case, no. big cases take a lot of time, a lot of effort. any professional costs, lawyers cost money. and that's what's needed. because there are -- i was offered this case and i turned it down. to get somebody paid on both sides, whether it's trayvon's family or zimmerman's attorneys, i don't think that's appropriate at all. if somebody wants to do that with their money. >> their own volition if they want to pay that money to george zimmerman. thank you so much.
we'll wait and see if this judge ups the bond at all. we're getting some news. what we're looking at, huntington beach, california. if you can see it in the water, that is a dolphin. and this dolphin is a little too close to the beach, to the shore. you're looking with me. appears to be swimming in circles here. this is a channel near a nature conservancy, crews are watching here as this dolphin is circling. this is very, very shallow water. it looks like two people maybe there on the shore, trying to see if the dolphin is okay. bystanders they're on the road nearby as well. chad myers, here we go. a closer shot of this doll fen. do we know how shallow the water is and how the dolphin ended up here in the first place? >> this is on the other side of the beach.
this is the east side of huntington beach. there are not many ways in and out for this dolphin. been swimming around for a couple of hours. people on shoert seeing him there. there's a way in and way out. they just have to figure out how to get the dolphin back out the way he came in. the only way to do that is to try to push it along or scare it along in the right direction. he doesn't know whether he's going left or right. this is a north-south part of the beach. it's called bulsa chica preserve down there. >> we'll keep watching. >> let us know if they're table to get this little guy out of there. we'll keep an i yao on the dolphin in huntington beach, california. >> another father of an autistic child sends him to school with a hidden microphone. take a listen to this .

the dolphin. see the white dot? that's the seagull. so folks if you're drive on the pch, pacific coast highway there in huntington beach area, if you see people getting out and checking this out, this is the wetland sides. you have the pacific on one side, the conservancy on the other. that is where the dolphin and the seagull are -- and there are folks trying to figure out how they're going to get this dolphin back in the pacific? >> i think you have to scare it in the right direction. people are saying, can't they just put a swimmer in and the dolphin would follow the swimmer. i think the dolphin would swim away from the swimmer. but i think the seagull is just there looking for good and thinking the dolphin is going to get something. >> i'm like oh, there's a seagull. >> ehe's not trying to help it back to the ocean, brooke. >> i know that. i know that. thank you very much chad myers. we're going to see if we can get any pictures if anyone tries to
rescue the dolphin. i do want to move along here. it's moving day for much of the nation here. now that they've all been retired, the space shuttles are being shuffled around. the most traveled of the shuttles, the discovery moved to chan chan chantilly, virginia. enterprise, that's the news today. enterprise going on display in new york. and to get there from virginia, it flew piggy back -- i never get over sees these pictures. piggy backing on a boeing 747. people all up and down the northeast coastline enjoyed watching the move, including leonard nemoy, mr. spock. i apologize, trek i ckies if i messed up his last name.
>> general ford was president of the time. he got a big load of letters from star trek fans who are very good at writing letters. h econvinced the president it should be named enterprise. that's how it came about. >> leonard nemoy. not a trekkie, i apologize. i just can't get over the piggy backing picture. it was on the 747 and then it goes up the hudson, correct? >> yeah, you know, and it's funny you mention that. there's a great picture we showed earlier today of all the star trek cast standing in front of enterprise as it was rolled out the only guy who wasn't there was william shatner and we still haven't gotten answers as to why he wasn't there.
enterprise flew all the around new york, up and down the hudson passed the statue of liberty. so now it's on the ground. it's going to be encased in a bubble. >> that's the picture i want to see. the enterprise on that barge up the hudson. can you give us some history on the enterprise? >> it never flew in space. it actually flew piggy back on the back of a 747 about ten times. what they were doing was flight testing to make sure that
everything thnasa had put into e design of space shuttles would work for reentry, to come back, glide. remember, the space shuttle glides back to earth. not under power of engines. they dropped it off of the 747. you can see it there in those images. that was over the mojave desert. it worked just great. although they did find a few things in the last tests that made them go back a little bit and change the desooen just a little bit. so enterprise is not quite exactly like the shuttles that flew in space. >> i know the current administrator, charlie bolden is going to be on next hour. hope you join me next hour as we talk about retirement and how this is also bittersweet.
all week, you have seen the president at various universities all across the country. doubting the importance of student loans. but now he might be vetoing legislation, keeping loan rates low. we're going to go live to capitol hill for an explanation. if you're paying any of those, also a father sends his son to school with a wireless microphone so he can record any kind of abuse this child might be getting from a teacher. the teacher now has hired a lawyer. everyone in america depends on the postal service. i get my cancer medications through the mail.
now washington, they're looking at shutting down post offices coast to coast. closing plants is not the answer. they want to cut 100,000 jobs. it's gonna cost us more, and the service is gonna be less. we could lose clientele because of increased mailing times. the ripple effect is going to be devastating. congress created the problem. and if our legislators get on the ball, they can make the right decisions.
why do people insist there's a political fight on something where there's absolutely no fight. people want to politicize this because it's an election year. but my god, do we have to fight about everything. and now we're going to have a fight over women's health. give me a break. this is the latest plank in the so-called war on women, entirely created by my colleagues across the aisle for political gain. >> house speaker boehner. so we have student loans, women's health, is this pure politics? let me bring in the managing editor of "the hill." on the surface of -- you're welcome. on the surface that the house has now passed the measure in terms of the interest rate not
doubling, we know the deadline is july 1. he eluded to, he being boehner alluded to this conversation for health care. fill in the blanks for me. they both agree rates should not jump. that's a shift because the republicans budget they just passed kept the rate at 6.8, not 3.4, the lower run. so i think based on pressure from the white house republicans scheduled this vote. okay, we want to keep those rates at the lower rate, but the question is how to pay for it. >> how do they pay for it? >> they would go after the health care law, a preventive mart of the law that costs about $6 billion. and of course, that's what triggered the president to veto -- or promise to veto this, should it get to his desk.. but it won't. senate democrats aren't going to allow that.
they need to come up with couts to offset these costs. that's not easy. >> let's take a look. this is sproem earlier this week on jimmy fallon. >> now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people. . >> oh, yeah. you should listen to the president. or as i like to call him, the preezie of the united steezie. >> it's obviously funny. mitt romney, his gop rival also at a university today. clearly both of them have two key demographics in mind come
november. that being the young vote. both the president and mitt romney support this legislative initiative. that's why republicans are getting behind their nominee and moving this legislation. but it is all about the youth vote. and president obama needs to fire up that base that's been -- certainly some have been frustrated with the president. he needs that vote to come out. mitt romney has countered that a lot of young people are out of work because of the president's policies. you have this storm of the youth vote, presidential politics, congressional politics, all coming together. and are we going to get a resolution come july 30, july 1? i think so. but i think it could go down to the wire. a. >> so if i'm hearing you correctly, parents are students out there, with all the student loan debt or applying with student loans can breathe easier. this lest rate will not double. so what's in it for them? or should they be concerned about the where, where it comes from. where does that fight take place?
>>? the health care law, the president used a lot of pay-fors of billions of dollars, cutting into hmo's. i think this will get done, but it's one to monitor. when we get into the heat of the election year this summer, that's when these rates are scheduled to go up. and maybe they just say we'll bring this to the voters and finger pointing will happen. we've seen that before. >> bob, thank you so much for coming on. also want to let you know that candy crowley sat down with speaker boehner. we'll see where that went. we are still on dolphin watch here. take a look. oh, two dolphins now. are these live? live pictures. tell me again? >> this is a deep eer portion.
there's a couple. one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. seven dolphins. perhaps can you tell me -- >> go ahead, chad. >> this is a section by the yacht club. we counted about 2,500 feet north from where the one dolphin is stranded. the one dolphin is now just south of the warner avenue bridge. he went under the bridge and kind of swam into the shallow waters down by the swamp, the wet lands, the swamplands by the south. if he swims up to where all his friends are, you see here the helicopter zooms out, you'll see this is basically by the yacht club. just a bunch of boats here. clearly these dolphins swim here all the time. they're not looking for their friend. their friend has to make it back to the north about half a mile. we'll take a look more where he is now. >> we'll keep an eye. we'll see if the dolphin can make it back safe and sound.
