them and the kids bring smiles if your face. thanks for joining us. i'll see you at 5:00 with "the five." i'm dana perino. here's shep. >> shepard: it's 3:00 on the east coast. noon on the west coast. get this, some workers could soon be able to bring their babies to work. supporters say it will save parents lots of money and they won't miss their kids big moment. but critics ask, you're going to have your baby at work? how will you get anything done? and if a man can go topless, why not a woman? that's the question from a teacher who says her boss fired her over a selfie. >> what is wrong with my image? it's my breasts, my chest, my body. it's something that should be celebrated. >> shepard: how didn't a student end up with the photo? reporting begins now.
12:01 pm
our reporting begins in boston. celebrities accused of scamming their kids way into college are right now facing a judge. this is the largest ever college admissions scandal. prosecutors say the parents paid for their kids good sat scores, even photo shopped fakes to make them look like athletes when they were not. the desperate house wives actress, felicity huffman and full house's aunt becky, lori loughlin, appearing in federal court. they're the most famous of the nearly three dozen defendants that prosecutors describe as a catalog of wealth and privilege. prosecutors say loughlin and her husband paid $500,000 to have their daughters admitted to the university of southern california as recruits for the crew team even though never sister participated in that sport. for comparison, that's about $2
12:02 pm
$200,000 more than a full education at usc. felicity huffman took a different approach and focused on academics instead of athletics. they that she forked over $15,000 to fake her daughter's test scores and tried to pass it off as a charitable donation. prosecutors say it's bribery. temperature parents have not spoken publicly. they deny the charges. the actresses have lost jobs and could face decades in federal prison if convicted and given the max. molly line has been covering the story from jump. she's live in boston. molly? >> we're expecting the most recognizable faces to come out of the courthouse shortly. you can see the cameras behind me with their eyes trained on the door. all of the defendants in this case, regardless of how famous have to go through the same
12:03 pm
doors. no special treatment. felicity huffman and lori loughlin and her husband who just appeared before the judge. the one detail that i'm getting doctor my producer that just came through is that lori loughlin came to the government attorneys before taking her seat and smiling broadly and shaking their hands before sitting down next to her husband. we're waiting details of what happened. this is an initial appearance. so it's unlikely we'll see much more detail, unlikely to see any plea or anything like that. one big piece of news is that peter satorio, one of the parents that will be in court is the first parent charged in the college admission scandal to say that he will plead guilty. this information is coming from a court filing. we're just getting this. in the document, he asked the court to move the date of his initial appearance, which was slated for today to april 30th. reading from the document as
12:04 pm
grounds for this motion, the defendant states that he intends to plead guilty. that will be the next date to look for. he's facing the same charges as a majority of the parents and the same allegations essentially that he bribed through the mastermind of this scheme, william singer. he participated in the entrance exam portion of this scandal. aiming -- sending $15,000 to pay a special proctor to correct his daughter's act answers, shep. >> shepard: molly line. thanks. we'll go back for live developments outside the courthouse. we're keeping an eye on the microphones and see if anybody decides to talk. see those, whether it's prosecutors or some of the accused scammers or whatever. if it happens, we'll go there. judge andrew napolitano is here. you talked the last time you were here on this matter about how this might go.
12:05 pm
those that come forward first. >> well, in a case like this where there are many, many defendants, so many that the government does not want to try all of them, the people that go to the government first and offered some sort of a deal will likely get the best deal. the people that are still hanging around in the end after many others have already pleaded guilty are not going to get the best deal. so i'm not surprised the person that molly just told us, i don't remember who it was, has indicated a guilty plea. probably hasn't been worked out yet. guilty plea implies terms. here's what i can give you. i know of other people that have done this. i don't want to testify against them. if i have to, i will. i want my exposure for jail time reduced or promise of no jail time or my exposure of a fine reduced. if that doesn't happen, a trial like this -- these people are wealthy people. a trial like this could cost between $500,000 and a million bucks. >> shepard: wow.
12:06 pm
bigger picture, judge what are we seeing here? not just about the individuals whose names we know, aunt becky and the rest. bigger picture, what is this? >> as you said earlier, shep, this is the largest college cheating -- to get into college, not cheating while you're there, scam that the country has seen. it is enormous. this is a strange type of conspiracy because if you think of a bicycle wheel, all the parents and the children and the universities are at the edge of the wheel where the rubber is. in the middle is this guy rick singer. the people at the edge don't know each other. the thing in common is singer and paying money to him or people on his behalf and his distributing it to get done what they want. this tells me that the government is willing to prosecutor things like this. i don't know how long this has been going on. we never heard of one like this before. >> shepard: you mentioned as a way of observation to me and our
12:07 pm
producers that the magistrate in this case has been warning the principals about their use of marijuana. what is that? >> what does marijuana have to do with this? here's the drill. these people live all over the country. they live in states where marijuana is lawful for medicinal purposes and in some cases like california and colorado, it's legal for recreational purposes. it's unlawful everywhere in the united states for every purpose under federal law. what does that mean? break federal law while you're out on bail, lose your bail, lose your freedom. so she's basically doing them a favor and reminding them -- i'm not saying you use it and passing judgment on your lifestyle. i'm saying you may be accustomed to doing something that is lawful in california and colorado, don't. they'll come after you. >> shepard: large conspiracies with dozens of defendants largely unknown to each other and the common threat among them being the cooperating defendant that received and distributed
12:08 pm
bribes. this is about bribery. >> yes, about bribery and fraud. about using the mails and the banking wiring system to pass along either information or cash to deceive people. that is the essence of the crime. so just like the jussie smollett case. you send a fraudulent document through the mail, it's mail fraud. you wire funds for a fraudulent purpose, it's wire fraud. that is the essence of the federal prosecution. because you agreed to do this, it's a conspiracy. it's the actual crime and agreement to commit the crime that the feds are properly going after here. >> shepard: that's what they're moving to. in the smollett cause, since you brought it up, they're investigating -- >> i don't know what the feds will do. we understand the feds are looking at it. >> shepard: that's for sure. you're the man. thank you, judge. >> any time, shep. >> shepard: we'll update this throughout the afternoon. we're expecting people to come to the microphone and give their
12:09 pm
say on this bribery scam. when we hear from them, we'll go back for sure. an american woman on a safari trip in africa, right? gunmen grab her and drag her into the bush. okay? on safari in africa. they drag you into the bush. kidnappers demand a huge payment or we're going to keep you. something else happened. there's a rescue team on the way. how this is all unfolding in a real-life drama right now as our reporting continues on this wednesday afternoon.
12:10 pm
12:11 pm
12:12 pm
(gasp) (singsong) budget meeting! sweet. if you compare last quarter to this quarter... various: mmm.
12:13 pm
it's no wonder everything seems a little better with the creamy taste of philly, made with fresh milk and real cream. hi, i'm joan lunden. when my mother began forgetting things, we didn't know where to turn for more information. that's why i recommend a free service called a place for mom. we have local senior living advisors who can answer your questions about dementia or memory care and, if necessary, help you find the right place for your mom or dad. we all want what's best for our parents, so call today. >> shepard: okay. the rescue mission that is happening now in africa. here's what happened. an american tourist went down to safari in eastern africa in uganda. someone stole her, basically.
12:14 pm
that's the word from ugandan officials where gunmen ambushed her tour vehicle. they're they come, snatch her up. she's 35 years old. she was with other tourists. they left the other tourists alone and took her and the african guide and snatched them away. the spot is queen elizabeth national park. one of the most famous wild life preserves and a popular place for tourists to see lions and hippos. that's where this is unfolding. jennifer griffin is on it. she's live at the pentagon. this is a crazy story, jennifer. >> it is, shepard. we just received a statement from the state department saying "we're aware of reports of a u.s. citizen kidnapped in uganda. security forces are responding. we have no further information to offer at this time." the american tourist was stobbed
12:15 pm
at gun point in the queen elizabeth park on the border with congo. she and her driver were taken away by four gunmen that used their phone to call in a $500,000 ransom. secretary of state mike pompeo said that the united states doesn't play ransoms. >> please remember that any payment to a terrorist regime gives money so that they can seize more people. we cannot accept that risk. you wouldn't ask that hoff us, even a small payment to a group and say if africa could facilitate other americans. >> a haunting foreshadowing of today's events. >> shepard: do we have an idea yet? do you know why this particular woman on safari in uganda? it's so out of the world. >> it's unusual.
12:16 pm
american tourists in africa are an unusual target. americans travel to uganda to see gorillas. uganda shares a border with kenya, what has been the target of multiple terror attacks targeting foreigners. spillover from the u.s. and african effort to combat al shabaab in somalia. this part of uganda is closer to the democratic republic of congo, which has been in the throes of a vicious civil war for decades. four other tourists were part of the group. they were left behind by the kidnapping. the police issued the following statement. they say we believe this ransom is the reason behind the kidnap. their vehicle was left parked and their kidnappers went away with the key. an elite squad was sent in to pursue the kidnappers. we have more from that area, shep. >> shepard: thanks, jennifer.
12:17 pm
so this you had to figure was coming. new breaking news. this is brand new now on vice president biden. former vice president biden. he's now responding to multiple women's claims that they felt inappropriately touched by him. he tweeted a video. here's what just happened. the former vice president has responded to this. he's done so himself in a video. we had nothing to do with this video. this is his video and we're going to play it now. we're trying to play it. it's -- listen. >> i always try to be in my career, always tried to make a human connection. that's my responsibility, which i think. i shake hands, i hug people. i grab men and women by the shoulders and say you can do this, whether they're women, men, young, old.
12:18 pm
it's the way i've always been and tried to show that i care about them and i'm listening. over the years knowing what's been through, the things that i've faced, i found that scores, if not hundreds of people have come up to me and reached out for solace and comfort. something, anything that may help them get through the tragedy they're going through. so it's just who i am. >> shepard: so that's vice president biden's response. remember, this has been building. first there was one member, elected official that felt uncomfortable. and then another came forward. and then two more have said, you know, i didn't feel good about this. people on both sides of the political aisle are like, you know, it's obvious he's always been a guy that has been in close proximity to people. as he just said there. the question is how does this go forward politically now and otherwise.
12:19 pm
garrett tenney is our reporter on this. a response from the former vice president. >> yeah, shep, this is part hoff biden and his team's efforts to fight back this narrative that's been building the last few days that he has an issue with how he treats and interacts with women. in this video he's trying to re-assure folks that he understands how he's been in the past. it doesn't work today. here's the rest of the video. >> and i've never thought of politics of cold and anti-septic. i've always thought it about connecting with people. as i said, shaking hands, hands on the should her, hug. encouragement. now it's all about taking selfies together. social norms have began to change, shifted. the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset. i get it. i get it. i hear what they're saying. i understand it. i'll be much more mindful. that's my responsibility. my responsibility. i'll meet it.
12:20 pm
but i'll always believe quite frankly, life for that matter is about connecting. connecting with people. that won't change. i will be more mindful and respectful of people's personal space. that's a good thing. that's a good thing. i worked my whole life to empower women. i worked my whole life to rid of abuse. so the idea that i can't adjust to the fact that personal space is important, more important than it's ever been is just not thinkable. i will. i will. >> shep, the last portion of the video is significant. four women have accused him of making them feel uncomfortable. those accusations have raised thoughts about his style can work in the me too era or his physicality will create more problems for him and his party
12:21 pm
which would like to make president trump's treatment of women in the 2020 election. you heard biden say this is an issue and he's going to change. several biden advisers as they are preparing, trying to figure out how to respond to these accusations. they've been trying to get counterclaims from women saying biden is above board in their interactions with them. they're to support them, this is the latest effort as he prepares to launch his presidential bid. >> shepard: thanks, garrett. and this is breaking as well. we told you some of those in court regarding the college bribery cases. there she is. that's lori loughlin, the actress leaving the federal courthouse in boston. we thought some may speak and they may. everybody hasn't come out. lori loughlin did not speak. we'll have details as more come forward. a teacher says her boss fired her over a topless photo from years ago that was supposed to

12:27 pm
happened, but somehow a student got the photo and started circulating around the school. she says the district discriminated against her because she's a woman and that a man who had had a topless photo circulating around the school would never have been fired and she as a woman who had a topless photo circulating around school got fired. so there's the question. jacqui heinrich reporting. jacqui? >> she's suing for $3 million. she was placed on administrative leave in january. the south country school district told her they written investigating after a student got ahold of the topless selfie who she sent to her ex-boyfriend two years earlier. the investigation was a sham and administrators had reach a foregone conclusion that she was unfit to teach because she didn't conduct herself to a higher standard.
12:28 pm
she was fired last week. miranda is suing for sexual discrimination saying not only did she play no role leaking that image to students but a male teacher would never lose he's job if his chest was exposed. >> what message is that scaring to everybody that has their photos sent all over. what message are we sending to them? to roll over when your picture gets exposed without your permission or consent? so how am i not being a role model to them? >> new york recently passed a revenge porn law that allows people to sue when explicit photos are shared without their consent. but miranda's attorney says she doesn't plan to sue because the image is not pornographic. the school district today declined to comment. shep? >> shepard: jacqui heinrich reporting live in new york city. jacqui, thanks very much. from the mueller investigation

would parents money on child care and give them more time to bond with their kids. the critics are like could you think about this for a minute? babies at work? are you sure? anita vogel reporting live. hi, anita. >> well, hi, shepard. the bill's author, a parent himself, calls the proposal a piece of cake. he says you just bring your baby to work with a bassinet and that's it. new moms and dads or caregivers could bring the infant into the workplace so long as the baby is between the ages of six weeks to six months old or until he or she is crawling. there's no special room with supervision. the employee is still responsible for the baby. it just has to be a bassinet in your work environment. the goal is to create bonding with a child and save people big bucks. in california, infant care runs $1,000 to $2,000 a month on the average. it's solely up to the workplace to opt in or out of the program.
12:43 pm
but is it a good solution for everyone? >> ages three to six months is the highest. $600 to $700 a month. i'm okay with it. people take their dogs to work. can't be that bad. >> there's a lot of positives and benefits to that. i just don't know how realistic would be. it would depend on the work environment, the stress of the workplace. >> now, the bill specifies some state agencies won't be eligible. anyplace with a construction site or busy customer service center like the dmv. can't imagine a baby there, shepard. >> shepard: or next to you on the reporter desk. that wouldn't work. >> not at all. >> shepard: some other states already have this law. i didn't know that. >> yeah, that's right. california is not the first to pro propose this. statement departments in
12:44 pm
arizona, kansas, nevada, north dakota, washington state and vermont already offer some form of the program. california tried unsuccessfully to get the bill passed last year. the author said it wouldn't cost a penny. but last year's proposal would cost $150,000 from the general fund to start it in a single state agency. now, the bill could be introduced again in the next couple months. governor newsome is said to be in favor of family friendly proposals but no word on where he stands on this one. shepard? back to you. >> shepard: some fox news families babies trying to match their parents with their kids. doesn't mean much to you but funny to us. cute babies all around. the number of measles cases here in the united states has hit a new milestone. it's serious. we'll talk with a doctor about staying healthy. first, two guys in rogers arkansas appear to have invented

12:50 pm
for disease control centers for disease control. i've said that 1,000 time on television. measles is an extremely dangerous condition, a virus that trigger as rash of red spots. the feds say the u.s. eliminated the disease in 2000, but outbreaks have been popping up all over the country. health officials say the reason is simple. it's usually because unvaccinated people travel through areas where measles is more common. dr. raj is here from new york university. this is about people decided not to get their kids vaccinated. >> it is. it originates from people going to israel, the ukraine and spreads to people that are not vaccinated because of unfounded fears. >> shepard: so for parents that don't get their children vaccinated. >> yes. >> shepard: as a medical professional, what is your instruction and advice? >> well, to get your child vaccinated, number 1.
