7:00 am

7:01 am
♪ i was born this way >> pop's superstar hits center stage in central park. it's time for the music event of the year. lady gaga, only on "gma," right now. and just look at that crowd. thousands and thousands in central park on a glorious spring morning. it's the biggest crowd ever for a "gma" summer concert. it's the biggest star ever. >> oh, my goodness. >> just look at that. >> and somewhere out there seeing thousands of little monsters. our own little monster, lara spencer. and you could just feel the excitement here in times square. we're going to be headed there with lara in just a little bit. let's just say, lady gaga is known for making an entrance. >> that's an understatement.
7:02 am
it is going to be an amazing morning. we are going to get to that. as 35 million of us are set to hit the road this weekend, we're focused on the severe weather hitting so much of the country. let's get to the latest on the storms. sam's been tracking it all. and the southeast has been hit hard. >> it will be a line of storms moving east today. here's what we know. more folks are outdoors on a holiday weekend. it becomes more important for folks to heed the warning and get inside. we realize from yesterday's deaths in atlanta, it doesn't take a tornado to kill people. straight-line winds can do that. 14 states. more than 600 storm reports. back in the joplin area, wichita, oklahoma city. more unusual, where the storms are popping up in the northeast. this is highly unusual. portland, albany, washington, d.c., all in line for the storms during the day today. and the storm reports will be popping. we'll be following. so will your local abc stations. we'll have all of the weather in a moment. i know you mentioned joplin,
7:03 am
as well, where 230 people are listed as missing, after the tornado that tore through that city 5 days ago. matt gutman joins us live from joplin. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. over 200 names on that list. on this block alone, four families missing. we took that list and went to nine different addresses. our first stop went to zachary willi williams. 12 years old. he was confirmed dead. however, we kept going. knocked on doors. talked to neighbors. we found the sherrick family. four members of the family had been living down the street. i took all of this information to tommy sherrick. gave him the hotline for missing persons. he told the state troopers that he is absolutely well and safe and has been staying in his house. >> cell phone service has been down a lot. it's hard for people to communicate. on the cell phones that are working, there are cameras. and we're getting more images of what the tornado looked like, don't we, matt?
7:04 am
>> reporter: we are. and pretty astounding image you're seeing right here. backyard video. the toys turning into missiles. that trampoline going flying. this is taken from billy tile's house. five members of the family all cowering inside. they all survived. the house didn't fare as well. there's so many stories like that. look around, 8,000 homes destroyed. 200 businesses. and the death toll is going to rise. but the search for the missing continues. and the list for the missing is going to shrink. robin? >> and a bit of good news. telephone poles? they're starting to come up again? >> reporter: power lines coming up, as well. things are starting to rebuild here. at least in infrastructure, robin. >> matt, thank you very much. people are hitting the road for the big holiday weekend. and so many of you are filling up the tank today. before you head to the pump, our bianna golodryga looked at what you need to know. and she has more from -- well, she's behind the wheel on the road right now. bianna? >> reporter: good morning, robin.
7:05 am
after a freezing winter and a record number of storms this spring, americans are ready to hit the road this summer. it's not going to be cheap. the average gallon of gas costing $3.80. that means americans will be spending $23 more this year than they did last memorial day weekend. there are some ways that you can bring that number down. trips to the beach, the country, or the city. 3 million americans will fly. and 35 million will hit the road to get there this memorial day weekend. if gas prices will determine if you get behind the wheel, our abc news investigation had some important tips for you. with help from mapping firm, esri, we looked at 5,100 stations in 4 areas. chicago, boston, orange county and jacksonville, targeted in april, a month when gas shot up 30 cents. what did we find? to save the most, fill up on fridays. in three of the areas, gas prices increased most on saturdays. get there before they rise.
7:06 am
second, go clubbing. to warehouse clubs, like sam's, costco or b.j.'s, where we found the price was at least 3% lower than the average. a savings of $2.25 on every fill-up. third, just like in real estate, it's all about location. avoiding stations along the highway, by finding one just a minute away from the highway exit, can save you 11%, or about 7 bucks a fill-up. >> all right. and bianna has other tips we're going to show you here at the smart screen. tips, as well. you need to avoid downtown areas. this was information provided in the month of april. and the darker colors means higher gas prices. here in chicago, if you're more in the downtown area, that means gas prices are higher. boston, the same thing. gas prices a little less expensive north of the city. it's so expensive right here because this is a main highway leading into boston. the moral of the story here, to avoid downtown areas.
7:07 am
but that is not always the case. you see here in orange county, not so bad. but it starts to heat up, yes, along the beaches. that's where the prices are the highest. and jacksonville, there's really no rhyme or reason. but around the downtown area, it's not so expensive. so, the bottom line is, you really need to know the price patterns in your particular area. george? >> okay, robin, thanks. now, the presidential race. a number of new candidates expected in the next week. maybe even the best-known of all, sarah palin. she is sending new signals that she could be mounting a presidential bid. and jon karl has more on whether her bus tour this weekend is her first stop on her race to the white house. jon? >> reporter: good morning, george. first of all, mitt romney is among those who will make it official he is running for president next week. and he already looks like the front-runner. but it is sarah palin that is about to go on that national bus tour. the campaign is on. mitt romney, michele bachmann, rick santorum, are all getting
7:08 am
ready to officially jump in the race. but it is sarah palin who is about to grab the limelight, with a national bus tour. palin's team has been secretly prepping the bus for weeks. the tour begins sunday in washington, heads off to gettysburg, the liberty bell and other historic sites on the east coast. it looks like a campaign bus. could it be the beginning of a presidential campaign? a source close to palin tells abc news, that her bus tour does not mean she's about to launch a campaign. but there's been a lot to stir palin speculation. she's been secretly working on a documentary charting her political career that's scheduled to debut next month in iowa. she's traveled to israel. hired a new foreign policy adviser and chief of staff. and real estate records show she just bought a $1.7 million home in arizona. a palin source say that's just a vacation home.
7:09 am
but it's also an easier place to base a presidential campaign than alaska. here's what she told fox news when she was asked if she has the fire in the belly to run for president. >> the fire in the belly, it's there. that's kind of my problem. it's such a roaring fire in my belly to preserve and restore all that's good about america that i struggle with that every, single day. >> reporter: she'd sure shake up the field. a gallop poll put her second among potential presidential candidates, trailing only mitt romney. will she run? she's done very little to prepare for an actual campaign. she still has no press secretary, no scheduler. no organizations in the early primary states. and one confidant i spoke to said he does not think that palin will run. but that palin friend said that truthfully, only sarah and todd know what she will ultimately do. >> okay. jon karl, thanks very much. let's bring in matt dowd to sort through the tea leaves.
7:10 am
when you put it together, matt, is she in or out? >> i think what it means is, she's not necessarily in, george. but she's not not in. which means she's leaving her options open. she has to do this stuff if she wants to come run in late summer or fall, this is exactly what she needs to be doing. and as the piece led in that said, she is a force in this race if she gets in. >> there's no question about that, matt. the biggest clue that she's not getting in is fox is keeping her on contract. they forced everybody else looking at the race to get off fox news. >> well, the unusual thing i think about sarah palin that she has an advantage over the rest of the field, she has an opportunity to get in late and still stir the field up. because she's so passionate and because she actually equates better from an emotional level than the rest of the field, with the rest of the nomination process, she can get in late and still be successful in this process. >> she could be successful in the nomination. i agree with that. she will be fighting for many of
7:11 am
the same voters that michele bachmann, the minnesota congresswoman will be going after as well. but the white house and top democrats look at the field, they say, okay. romney has a good shot. it will be a close race for the president. pawlenty could run a close race with the president. jon huntsman could run a close race with the president. they look at newt gingrich, sarah palin and michele bachmann has re-election insurance. do you buy that? >> i'm sure the white house is celebrating the idea that sarah palin may get in the race and stir things up to make the race that's unpredictable even more unpredictable, which is a benefit for the white house. these politics can change in a moment, in a minute. and the president's re-election is contingent on the economy. sarah palin would help him get re-elected, it's no slam dunk if the economy isn't doing well, come a year from now. >> no question about that.
7:12 am
the unemployment rate, the most important number for president obama. matt dowd, thank you very much. another political story heating up. former presidential candidate, john edwards, met with a woman at the center of a investigation that could lead to a felony charge for edwards. he had lunch at the estate of bunny mellon. the meeting was reported by abc news. let's get background here. bunny mellon, multimillionaire. she's important because the theory of the prosecutor's case is several hundred thousand dollars from her went to cover up the affair, which makes it very odd that john edwards was meeting with her, even though the lawyers said it was a social meeting. >> his lawyers would say, it's okay for him to see friends of his. on the other hand, there's no question it's going to lead to raised eyebrows. and remember, he has to be careful, of course. his lawyer with him. that anything he says to her, she could later be asked about. well, only days before "x," what did john edwards say to you?
7:13 am
how did he seem? >> the prosecutor would be worried that he's tampering with a potential witness. >> witness tampering is an aggressive term of him visiting a friend for lunch. but there's no question that the prosecutors are going to want to know why he was there. >> meanwhile, we've seen a very aggressive statement from john edwards' lawyers saying that the prosecution's case is wrong on the facts and wrong on the law. that no one has been prosecuted for anything like they're accusing john edwards of doing. >> this is not a typical case. you're talking about allegations that a campaign fund is being used for personal expense. right? this is a case where they are thinking about alleging that money was effectively earmarked. it didn't even go into the campaign fund. but literally donors were found, money was given, simply for the cover-up, that it was never even in the john edwards' campaign fund. that's what makes it different. the key is going to be what was
7:14 am
in john edwards mind? and did he know? >> they found no campaign funds went for this purpose. >> right. that's going to be one of the legal issues they have to resolve. how do you define what is a campaign fund? >> all right. thank you very much. here in new york, the former financial titan accused of sexual assault. dominique strauss-kahn has taken up residence in a luxurious $14 million manhattan townhouse. and dan harris has the first look. good morning, dan. >> reporter: in fact, dominique strauss-kahn and his wife got into a car and took off. we don't know where they were going. but here it is. this is the 7,000-square-foot, 50 grand a month, recently renovated and fully furnished townhouse where he is now under house arrest. he was waking up in utter luxury. but his attorneys are now saying they could discredit his accuser. hours after dominique strauss-kahn moved into his new pad, his attorneys sent a letter to the judge, saying they had
7:15 am
information that would gravely undermine the credibility of the complainant in this case. prosecution fired back, they were aware of no such information. adding they were troubled that the attorneys had chosen to interject that claim into the public record. meanwhile, the former global banker accused of sexually assaulting a hotel maid is now padding around in one of the most expensive rentals in new york city. paid for by his wealthy wife, complete with a home theater and a bar, four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a rooftop terrace with a skylight. and some rather strange amenities. >> the doors that are the walls of the hallway are spring-loaded. if you push them the right way, they will open. it's not your average townhouse. >> reporter: is certainly a long way from the isolation cell on rikers island where strauss-kahn was being held. let me give you an example of how fancy this neighborhood is. within about 300 yards of dsk's new home, there are two spas
7:16 am
around the corner. right over there is the fancy sushi joint that robert de niro co-owns. you could not find a swankier place to be under house arrest. this spot has now become a magnet for the international media as well as tourists. this is a tour group from france. [ speaking french ] >> reporter: they're saying, keep him. we don't want him. according to "the new york post," as strauss-kahn was arriving at his new home the other night, one female passerby called him a pig. however, the neighbors we met, were, to use a french term, rather blaze. >> he's no danger to me or anybody around here. >> who cares if he's here? i don't care. >> reporter: we saw dominique strauss-kahn and his wife leave this townhouse. they got into an suv and took off. it's unclear where they were going. he's only allowed to leave for very selective activities, including seeing his attorneys and going to religious services. robin, back to you.
7:17 am
>> all right. very vocal neighbors. have a good weekend, dan. let's turn to josh elliott, for other stories. >> good morning. we begin with secretary of state hillary clinton, who is traveling to pakistan, hoping to improve u.s. relations with that country which have been tense after the raid that killed osama bin laden. the u.s. is demanding that pakistan intensify its fight toward al qaeda. to that end, perhaps, pakistan granted the cia access to bin laden's compound today. forensics teams will scour the inside of walls and floors for any evidence. thursday, meanwhile, the deadliest day for u.s. troops since bin laden's death. eight died in two explosions in kandahar province. the taliban has taken credit. in france this morning, president obama signed an extension of the u.s. patriot act. he used a device called an auto pen because the bill had to be signed before midnight washington time. in medical news, researchers say good cholesterol may not be as good as we thought.
7:18 am
the government has stopped a major study after realizing that giving patients the cholesterol drug niacin to raise their hdl or good cholesterol levels, did nothing to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke. finally, it's the unofficial start of summer. so, where is the best beach in america? the annual rankings, at least of one man, are out. and number one, apparently, siesta beach, in sarasota, florida, which claims to have the whitest sand in the world. here's your top five. from honolulu to the hamp tons. abc.com has all the rankings. i will say, as a native californian, and a visitor to the great state of hawaii, no. >> come on. >> no, no. sorry. >> you don't mention miami beach. and the heat come from behind, double-digits in the second half to make it into the finals. you don't mention that? >> down 12? >> you don't mention that. >> i remember the former life of

7:31 am
revealing nothing. you have to stay tuned to "gma." guys, get down here. >> we're going to hurry. first, a little news to get to. we're going to turn to florida, where there were more dramatic confrontations in the casey anthony murder trial. ashleigh banfield is in orlando. she's been in the courtroom from the start. she has the latest. hey, ashleigh. >> reporter: george, the witness in the case to talk about the bizarre allegations of abuse in the anthony home. but the jury did not hear it. this is all a mounting effort by the defense to explain away casey's bizarre behavior after her daughter died. and point the finger of blame at anyone but casey. more facts and evidence piling up against casey anthony. and more sad memories of her little girl, caylee. >> she liked "dora the explorer." and could count to 40 in spanish, which is incredible for her age.
7:32 am
she was a great little girl. >> reporter: normally stone-faced, casey started to cry. but tears were missing in the days after her daughter died. >> how did she appear? >> completely normal. >> she was happy. >> she seemed upbeat and happy. >> reporter: the defense argues, that the prosecutors have offered no cause of death. >> do you have any information for this jury to tell them how caylee died? >> i do not. >> i do not. >> reporter: her attorneys blame her silent resolve on this man. casey's father. they say she was physically and sexually battered and was spinning a web of lies. and the tension in court was thick. >> you're going off in a way to get me more upset. and i don't think that's fair. i'm just asking you to treat me with a little respect and you'll get respect back. that's all i'm asking. >> reporter: the jury was ordered out of the courtroom, as casey's ex-boyfriend testified for the first time about the abuse allegation.
7:33 am
>> was the secret that casey had shared with you that she had been abused by her father? >> no. >> what was the secret that she had shared with you? >> lee anthony tried to sexually abuse her. >> reporter: george anthony denies any abuse. her brother, lee anthony, hadn't testified. and another witness, ex-boyfriend, posted this picture on myspace. they said chloroform was in the back of the anthony car. >> why did you post this on myspace? >> it was a joke. i found it humorous at the time. >> reporter: humorous back then. but deadly serious right now. nancy grace of "the nancy grace show," on hln and our own dan abrams back again. nancy, there is so much to get to. but one of the key pieces of evidence yesterday, the talk about those missing gas cans.
7:34 am
the gas cans that were missing from george anthony's garage. that's why he was put back on the stand yesterday. >> that's right, george. very unusual to recall a witness so quickly after just having them on the stand, but i guess the state decided this is the time they wanted to introduce evidence of tot mom, casey anthony, breaking through a lock on a shed and taking her father's gas can. is that significant? not in itself. i believe what the defense is going to try to do is to link george anthony to the gas cans because of the duct tape on the gas can. they keep hammering to the jury that george anthony is the one linked to duct tape later found wrapped around caylee's nose and mouth. they are using this for a sinister reason. however, i think they lost a lot of points to the jury. jose baez got so combative and
7:35 am
sarcastic with george anthony, i thought they were going to come to blows. >> i wanted to ask dan about that, as well. it seemed deliberate. but was it smart? >> look, if you view george anthony as the villain, the way the defense does. the defense has claimed this is a child molester that may have disposed of the body here. so, it's not surprising, then, that the defense attorney would treat him with some degree of disdain. the problem is, you have to be careful not to get the jurors disliking the attorney. it's a fine line. i do think if you take this defense seriously, that jose baez has to be aggressive, very aggressive and maybe even disdainful in his questioning of george anthony. >> they want him to be the focus. one thing that may have helped casey anthony yesterday, as the boyfriends come forward, as the friends come forward, we actually saw a little bit of emotion from casey. >> well, you know, we did see emotion. but i felt like she was crying at all the wrong times. it was more about her and her interaction with caylee.
7:36 am
but with all the former lovers coming forward, one after the next after the next, i think that's hurting tot mom's case. and also, the headline is this. the defense is hanging their hat on the peg that tot mom was molested, sexually molested by her father and brother. they tried to get it in through the big secret that she told her live-in lover, tony lazzaro. when the jury left, they brought lazzaro in for a secret proffer. they said what was the big secret she told you. did she tell you she was molested by her father? he goes, no. the bottom line is, her father hit her while he was disciplining her. and she says her brother tried to inappropriately fondle her. that's it. that's the big secret. >> they're going to need more. there's no question they're going to need more than just that witness to be able to back up their claim here. >> yeah. >> i do think there's an argument to be made. in addition to the fact that the witnesses are devastating to casey anthony, as to what she was doing in the days after her
7:37 am
daughter died. >> party girl. >> they're also humanizing her to some degree. and i think that is helpful. particularly in a death penalty case, where if she is convicted, there will be another phase of this case. the fact that the witnesses are all talking about her as a mother and good times and a normal person, i think that is helpful to her in this defense. >> dan, we only have a few seconds left. maybe you can't answer this question. but given what jurors have seen of the opening statements by the defense, when they see these questions to the witnesses objected to, do they know exactly what the defense is trying to get in? >> they don't know exactly. but they have a sense. nancy's right that they may be disappointed when they hear the testimony of this witness who is saying, no. it's not actually a claim that george anthony sexually abused casey as a child. it's a claim that her brother touched her inappropriately and that george anthony hit her. that's not what the defense laid out in its opening statement. they're going to need more to
7:38 am

[ cheers ] >> you know, i never -- i guess i never thought about that part of it. i always just thought about the music part. and i'm -- you know, an interview aired last night, actually, that i did, called "inside to outside." and i said in the interview, the instrument that i never learned how to play was my fans. they're the part of the story that nobody teaches you. the word "power" makes me very uncomfortable. i just want to do the right thing. and i want to be a voice with them, among them. >> and you have the music.

something related to bullying in this country. it's happening, rampant in schools and high schools all across the country. and you are using your power to speak out against that. >> yes. i've been actually really very pleased to see how much awareness has been raised around bullying and how deeply it affects everyone. you know, you don't have to be the loser kid in high school to be bullied. bullying and being picked on comes in so many different forms. if you're not being bullied, all i would say, because i like to talk about the other side of it, as well. be someone that nurtures. if there's someone in your class that maybe doesn't have a lot of friends, be the person that sits with them in the cafeteria sometimes. be the bigger person. >> one of the reasons so many relate to you is you're so authentic. we saw that recently in your documentary. you're so raw. and you're talking about your
8:23 am
insecurities. yes, she definitely is beautiful. how have you been able to become who you have, given what you've gone through? >> well, i guess i would say, when you start to conceive of the opportunity to put music out and you conceive of the opportunity that people will be watching, you better put the real you behind it. and you better put your real self behind it. because when the whole world has their eyes on you, when you say something that doesn't truly come from your spirit and your soul, or if you wear something that doesn't come from your spirit or your soul, it's an injustice to your position. so, i'm really myself every, single day. and i do it because i know my fans want me to. >> we've been having fun with this, too. "saturday night live," are you ready to go back? >> oh, not really. not really. i think it's too early. but we can. i'm sure you have tape.
8:24 am

8:25 am
to hang out with my fans and have it not be me. >> oh, nice. >> yeah. >> who would you be? >> i don't know. i'd just be like, you know, one of them. >> that leads to our next question, in that theme. isaac from denver, colorado. millions want to know, if you weren't famous today, what career path would you have pursued? >> well, i would still be a singer. i just wouldn't be famous. >> you have an answer for everything. >> did you ever think of doing anything else? >> no. i mean, that would be so awful, wouldn't it? if i just gave up because nobody bought my music? i mean, i just really love what i do. >> you don't do it for that. >> i don't do it for the money. >> no. and you have more than 10 million followers on twitter. that's where we've gotten a lot of these questions. this is a good one from kasey. do you have something you always travel with or keep close to you? >> yes. i actually wear my aunt joanne's birth certificate around my neck. i'm wearing it right now.
