needy. attorney steve allen joins us this morning with a look at what the new developments mean, good morning. >> good morning, patrice. >> so the defense said the perjury charges violated her legislative immunity and it worked the first time they tried to get charges dismissed like that. this time, the judge said, not going to happen, why is that? >> this time they went to the well once too often. what happened in the second set of charges, mr. lipscomb testified to the grand jury. he said that the mayor at the time she was city council president was president ceremonies and meetings involving the draft mill project which was one of his projects from which the grand jury could infer that she knew he did business with the city. the court said, well, there's a difference between political acts and legislative acts. the mere presence at a meeting or a ceremony when you don't talk about what happened is a political act. >> okay. >> and it does not impact the legislative immunity. >> he left the door open down the line saying that some of
this could be against the legislative immunity, but not too much to dismiss the whole thing. >> what the court said, i'm the gatekeeper for the evidence that comes to the trial. if you get into things that involve the legislative process, for instance, she went to this event and there was some discussion about what the city council could do with regard to new events, that evidence would not come in. so as the gatekeeper, if you go in the legislative process, i'm not going to allow the evidence, but if it's purely political, that is admissible. >> will her attorneys appeal, you think. >> i suspect they will take an appeal. this case has been severed from the other trial. this will go next, and how the theft charge goes will have a tremendous bearing on whether or not there even is a second trial. >> let's talk about the benefits of the defense of having two separate trials, because there's a definite benefit to them in doing it that way? >> it's absolutely to their benefit. the jury will only see benefits
of one area of alleged wrong going as opposed to two, where could accumulate the evidence saying if you did this, you could have done that. it's clearly to the defense a benefit so the case will be solely limited to the gift cards issue on the november 9th. >> you're a defense attorney. you know how this works. if in your best guess, can the defense present a good enough argument that she could get off on all of these charges? >> i think so. there's a lot of room for the defense to present evidence which will exonerate her on the gift cards the issue is going to be whether or not she used them. did she realize that she had no right to them. i suspect that we will see a defense which creates at least the impression that she had a right to use the cards. on the perjury issue, the question is going to turn on whether or not she received these gifts, because of her social relationship. >> right. >> as opposed to her political, and job as city council
president. >>all right. >> she is going to argue, well, it's purely social. it had nothing to do with my job. had i no need to do claire it? -- no need to declare it. >> we will find this next month. >> it's fast approaching. will he still be governor owe halloweo'malley in 2010. opinions from both sides of the aisle.
viruses and a loss of sensitive information that is now a daily occurrence. larry fiorino joins with us websiting. >> good morning patrice. >> how he serious is the problem that we need the governor to make this awareness month? >> two tack forbes, anyone out of 9 out of 10 websites are vulnerable to being infected. the business owners that are running the.websites don't know that they're vulnerable and are willing to take the risk right now. we haven't reached the point where people are dealing with the issue. we have a double whammy. >> it's serious enough that even in the president wants to deal with the issue with the cyber security act? >> exactly, a cyber security czar that they're looking to hire, but the giant on, off switch that the government is going to be able to have. if your website is involved in
anything, like denial of service attack, they will shut you down. they can't keep playing around with it. >> as a computer user how can i protect myself? >> it's very important. you should visit sites you trust, and you should be very skeptical of any site you download from. be sure your browser security is up-to-date, because a lot of times this involves the browser and security issues inside of the browser as a standard stuff, virus protection, spy wear, but avg is a good company. they actually have a link scanner. any will scan the sites that you're visiting ahead of time and tell you whether they found anything quickly. this is 2-3 second scan. it's not going to be real in-depth. >> back up everything, back up your key files. >> if you go out and research go to g14.com, there's a lot of data and how to protect yourself. >> thank you, larry for all of the information. coming up in the 7:00 hour,
grab a jacket. >> not that cold. >> it is cold out there, but if you warm up in the afternoon, if you have gloves on, you will be taking them off in the afternoon. >> it's that time of year. >> it's transition time. it's definitely feeling cooler and chillier as you head out this morning. temperatures in some spots. take a look at temperatures that are 43 degrees in frederick. we have 55 at baltimore, not too bad. boo in cheste52 in chester town. mid-40s to low 50s, definitely cold. not seeing anything on sky watch hd radar. that's because we have dry. the chance of clouds increasing is there this evening and the showers to follow comes our way for overnight tonight. 65 degrees at noon, 57 at 6:00 p.m. so notice, you do see the skies give way to plenty of sunshine midday.

31 on 83 moving through baltimore city. as for 83 through the county a slow 28 miles per hour there. and 31 now on the west side of the beltway back up to 61 on 95 through howard county. we do have a few accidents on the main lines and that starts on 95. the crash on the southbound lanes right at route 32 moving through aberdeen. route 40 is going to be the better bet for a an alternate. on 95, a lengthy ride from whitemarsh boulevard heading toward 695. and not much relief as usual, ongoing headaches on the beltway from overly toward parkville. towson and eventually hitting the 83. on 83 we cleared out a crash on the southbound lanes. it's right near i n timonium ro. here is the scene at 85, the cars are cruising on the ramps on the inner and outer loop stretch. the cars continue to file in on 95 moving through pikesville. on 695 at liberty road, it's a
difficult commute. check it out, it's completely packed on the outer loop lanes. the cars are barely moving. on the inner loop direction, there's a crash right at route 40 moving through catonsville. ) - we know technology can make you more connected. but now it can make you more connected to your doctor through e-mail. test results from home. check records. change appointments. now doctors, nurses, techs, pharmacists are all digitally connected to each other. and ultimately connected to you. at kaiser permanente, we believe that if knowledge is power, shared knowledge is even more powerful. kaiser permanente. thrive.

tweet. the first caller is phil. are you going to get the vaccine. >> absolutely. >> what do you think of people who are a little afraid to get it, do you understand that? >> not really. go back to the old saying, you're part of the problem, you're part of the cure. you got the opportunity to possibly prevent an emdee emdeec from happening. i was a part of the marine corps. they gave us things before they were available to the public. >> are you fearful of getting the swine flu before you get the vaccine. >> of course. would i rather get the vaccine and possibly not get the flu. or would i rather suffer through the flu itself? people question putting this thing. look at them, they're eating a sandwich every day, and they don't last, how can that bread last 3 to 4 weeks now. >> interesting. phil. shelli, are you planning to get
the swine flu vaccine? >> yes, i have to, because i'm in the medical field. >> you're exposed to a lot more than some people are. have you been worried about catching the swine flu up to this point? >> no, not really. my apprehension is more -- i'm a diabetic, and i also have to get the flu shot. >> okay. >> so i don't understand how they're going to interact with each other on my immune system, if it's going to overload it. i have two children, i don't know if i want them to get the shot because of the incident with the two little girls. and plus, i don't want to take it, because i'm putting it in the air in my home. >> so many questions, so many questions. shelli, so many questions, good luck with what decision you make. this one says no h1n1 for me. i had it back in the 70s and nearly died. i do not want to relive that experience.
this one says, no, because i feel if 98% of flu cases now are h1n1 and we don't have the flu vaccine yet, the chances of it working are slim. thank you for your tweets and calls this morning. coming up getting into the halloween spirit, why you can go for a great scare. but next, who will governor opally face during the 2010 [house] wow, i feel like a new house

delegate pat mcdonough join us for the house spotlight. there's a poll that governor o'malley would beat governor ehrlich. is that a rematch. governor ehrlich says he doesn't plan to jump into this race. >> i think that governor ehrlich is the most formidable candidate that the republican candidate has. during the last three elections, pretty much the race was won by the fact that somebody popular grabbed the imagination of the electorate. you always have 46, 47%, voting democrat. 46, 47% voting republican, but it's the 4 or middle 4 or 5% whose imagination needs to be captured in order for a republican or a democrat to win. last year it was governor o'malley. this year, they have to get somebody who is that kind of a
person. >> let me ask you, will governor ehrlich run, if he doesn't, who is the best person to go up against governor o'malley and your name has been tossed out there? >> i totally agree with what curt anderson said. i think those are the match up numbers. i think you can disregard the polls particularly in these tomb you'll tews times, they are looking for change. and governor o'malley has given a lot of gifts to the republican party if you think about it. i don't think it's about the republican party. it's about the individual and the approach that he has a candidate. i don't think that governor ehrlich will run. he will make that decision until january or february. i have said publicly, if bob ehrlich decides not to run, i will run for governor. i think we need someone who has an approach in the party that appeals to democrats. i represent a democrat district. i 1 number one in my district
and one of the highest vote totals in the state. >> you live in one district. there's 47 districts out there. could you realistically, canyou realistically beat o'malley if you were the republican nominee. >> we do have public financing and that is what i would take. that would provide me with enough funding to do the media that i need to get my message out to the people. the situation is here in november the voters will make a decision that will simply ask the question, do i want to retain the presiden present govd give him another chance. or do i want real change and now is the time to make that decision. >> delegate anderson, you want to keep governor o'malley in the office. what has he done that should keep him doctor. >> governor owe mal o'malley hae
state in the fashion that is good for maryland. he did what he had to do. it was not a popular decision to raise taxes we understand that, and we understand because of that decision, there a lot of folks who may be disenfranchised with him. there's one factor you have to take, the new registration of people who voted two years ago or a year and a half ago in the obama election. there's going to be a surge in democrats voting in the next election. >> we will have to see how that all turns out. >> i want to make a point on that. the key vote will be the young independence who are registering more than the democrats and the republicans and the reagan democrats who live across the state of maryland. they will decide who the next governor will be. >> thank you, governor

leukemia is very classified. we taylor each therapy to each child. we pay attention to what their leukemia cells are telling us, what their body is telling us and we focus on what is the right therapy. as soon as we have the exact type of leukemia, we start their chemotherapy right away which usually involves a chemotherapy through a central line, which is a line that is inserted into a larger vain as well as a spinal tap. we take out spinal fluid to look at this. this an area where the leukemia cells can hide and then we give chemotherapy into the spinal fluid. those are the two therapies that we have to instill instantly. the children are put to sleep. they are not awake for those procedures. we try to reduce the pain and suffering. >> i'm sure they appreciate it and the families having to deal with this. dr. york, thank you for joining us this morning. yes.
welcome back. as at this time 41:00 on it tuesday morning. the -- it's 8:41 on the tuesday morning. the sky watch hd radar is looking forgety good mean -- looking pretty good. i think the commute tomorrow morning it's going to look different than it does today thanks to this. the rain is moving through the midwest along the frontal boundary. that front is going to bring in different conditions as we get into tomorrow afternoon. here is where we have the cold front headed in our direction. you will see as high pressure moves offshore, it will make way for the clouds to move in ahead
of the cold front. expect as we will see plenty of sunshine later on today, expect the clouds to move in it ahead of the system. as the forgotten gets closer, look for the rain to move through the area in the morning hours. the morning commute as i said, could be a wet one by 11:00, you will see the front pushing through and we will start to dry out by the afternoon. the high pressure builds in from the west and we will see the skies begin to clear. tomorrow later in the day and into your thursday as well as much of friday looking okay until the next friday when the front pushes in. as far as how much rain, about a quarter of an inch for baltimore. 3 fatherrers of an inch for salisbury and 3 quarters of an inch. 63 degrees is the starting temperature. now partly cloudy so we're clearing things out for the time being. winds are calm, 57% relative humidity. 30.04 and holding steady. 45 is the dew point so it's dry.
we look at the temperatures, we're at bic 56 not too bad in baltimore. 48 in salisbury. 48 and 33 at oakland. the temperatures are going to climb to where they were yesterday. 68 degrees for the high in the eastern shore with partly cloudy skies. northeast wind becoming southeast. central part of the state getting to 78 degrees for the high with northeast skies. it will look very much the same for the western part of maryland where we will have mostly clear skies and a high of 78 degrees. tonight we drop to 68 degrees but more clouds on the way. again this morning will start with clouds, and then we clear out to see more sunshine. the clouds return overnight 58 degrees as a resulting overnight low. it doesn't drop as much then. in come the showers overnight and then as we move through the day, tomorrow we will get up to 71 degrees but the skies will clear some. as that happens, the winds pick up. we could have gusts upwards of 30 to 35 miles per hour.
it will be a windy one. the high pressure moves overhead and the winds die down for thursday looking very good then. 72 and sunny. 74 for friday, the front brings us more showers for overnight friday and saturday. the front that comes next is going to be bringing us chilly air for canada. 67 degrees for high on saturday, 64 on sunday, and 62 on monday with early showers. incidentally if you're heading to m&t stayed july this weekend for the game on sunday, 1:00 p.m., temperature around 62 degrees. it will be cool with a 10-mile-an-hour wind when the bangles come to town to get beat up by our ravens. right? sky watch hd radar is at your finger tips. you can use fox 45 powerful doppler radar to track incoming storms. interactive tools will let you see when rain or thunderstorms will be over your house, not my house, your house. go to foxbaltimore.com and my house, too, as a matter of fact and click on i radar. here is candace dold with the traffic edge. >> reporter: that is correct. there will be a w in the wind
