10:15 pm
family. we are a city that -- we're a small city. we all know each other and so there is sadness related to that, but there is a crisis we've got to fix with our government. we're going to have to move forward and fix that. >> what impact does this have on the city as far as we've got so many other things going on, worried about budget autonomy, worried about state rights, worried about voting in congress? how deeply does this hurt the city? >> well, it's a blow to our reputation. we're the nation's capital. as much as we want to say in illinois with two former governors sitting in prison, so no one questions their self- government, but we're the nation's capital under the world's spotlight and i think that it does damage us, but i also believe and have great faith in the voters of the district to get this right. we've just elected a new council member kenny mcduffie, a reformer. that's what we need to continue to do is elect good folks from the district. >> one of the striking things this week was hearing your
10:16 pm
colleagues david catania and mary cheh basically saying this isn't the end of it. we need to get to the end of it before we can move forward and i suppose to both of you do you believe there is more to come? >> well, i think that there is more to come. we have campaign financier from the private sector jeffrey thompson and those tentacles go pretty deep to almost every single one of my colleagues that have taken money from him and sometimes money orders just signed by whomever. then there's also the questions around the mayor. we do need this resolved as quickly as possible to ensure the stability and integrity of our government. >> mr. howard, is there more to come? >> i would guess so. the hallmark of most investigations is you start at a certain level, take the low hanging fruit, the people you can get to plead. work with them, find out what they know and usually work your way up. so i would guess we're going to see more. this tuesday is election day in virginia.
10:17 pm
republicans in the commonwealth will choose between four candidates for senate. former senator george allen, jamie radtke, reverend e.w. jackson and state representative bob marshall. >> i envision a much better future for our country and this election coming up in six months is going to determine the trajectory of the country whether we're going to continue declining or to begin ascending again. >> everything that we hole dear seems to be under -- hold dear seems to be under attack and we have now come to a point in our history where something has to be done. there is no more time. >> i'm a 21 year member of the virginia general assembly. i've never voted for a tax increase. i've never voted for deficit spending. i do not have to run from my record. >> but if we do not deal with spending and start paying down an almost $16 trillion debt, then jobs and our economy will be devastated. >> the primary winner will face
10:18 pm
tim kaine, the only democrat on the ballot. we're joined by fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. mark, let's start by talking with george allen. his history of virginia politics, is it an understatement to say that he's the man to beat tuesday? >> i will eat this microphone. i pledged to do that in other elections but definitely. i mean george allen has 100% name recognition. he's a former member of the virginia house of delegates, a former one term congressman, former u.s. senator, former governor. he's well financed. he has three opponents which you showed who are splitting up the anti-allen vote and it would be a colossal upset if any of those three won and i really almost feel that they don't have any impact on the general election. these three are running to the right of george allen and they're not going to sit home when it comes to the general election in november and that
10:19 pm
general election against tim kaine who they're calling chairman kaine rather than former governor kaine could really determine the future of who has the majority in the u.s. senate, but george allen is as close to being a shoe-in just by definition. >> and in this primary anyone can vote, right? you don't have to be a registered republican? >> that's really important. unlike d.c. and maryland, there is no party registration. so if you're a registered voter, you get to participate. you can't vote in both primaries, but you can pick either primary. obviously mostly republicans who consider themselves republicans, but it's an open primary system. everybody is eligible. i think turnout is going to be very low and i think allen will get 60 to 70% of the vote. >> so that's even despite the fact that state representative bob marshall has a pretty strong following? >> he has a strong following in northern virginia and maybe his own legislative district.
10:20 pm
i saw one poll that said he's at 12%. he's a very controversial provocative guy, but he doesn't have the money or name recognition and in a primary like this that's what's so key and allen is so dominant in fundraising and name recognition that marshall who also run for governor in a convention felt that the convention actually stole the election when he ran against jim gilmore. when you have so many people voting, somebody like marshall doesn't stand a chance. >> all right. thank you very much, mark. we appreciate that. . well, another big story tonight, nato forces will no longer conduct airstrikes in afghanistan's residential neighborhoods following a recent airstrike that killed 18 civilians. fox's david piper has the details from kabul, afghanistan. >> reporter: afghan president hamid karzai has also warned that the security alliance between his country and the u.s. is also at risk now because of that airstrike and
10:21 pm
he also says any more attacks on afghan homes, then it will be seen as an act of aggression against his country. a nato investigation has announced the coalition forces were responsible for the untinnedded deaths of civilians. the -- unintended deaths of civilians. general john allen apologized for the civilian deaths on friday. during the raid it's been established forces of the u.s. and afghanistan came under fire while hunting a local taliban leader who was holed up in a house nearby. the american forces then called in an airstrike. only later they found out the house secured men, women and old men who had gathered for a wedding party. a spokesman for president karzai said afghan investigators told him u.s. troops had called in the airstrike without consulting afghan units who had surrounded the house and were given no chance to flush out the militants. raids by nato forces in residential areas have become a major issue for the alliance
10:22 pm
because of the danger to the civilians. the alliance says they are key to capturing and killing taliban leaders, but president karzai said the latest airstrike was the fifth incident since they signed the security pact, but it seems to have gone terribly wrong this time. matthew mcconaughey says i do to his long time girl friend, the unusual way they said their vows up next. 
10:23 pm
10:24 pm
10:25 pm
bad news for ladies across country. your chance to scoop up one of america's most eligible bachelors has passed. hollywood hunk matthew mcconaughey finally tied the knot to long time girl friend model camila alves. reports describe the ceremony as intimate with family and friends at the actor's home in

10:27 pm
as stores try to please same sex couples. we'll look into what's behind the new campaign. >> and it's a war of words at the white house. a leading senator blames the president for national security leaks, how his advisors are fighting back up next. 
10:28 pm
10:29 pm
10:30 pm
this is fox 5 news at 10:00. did the white house authorize leaks on sensitive national security issues? the accusations are flying directly from members of congress, but tonight a top advisor to the obama campaign insists the white house was not the source of the latest round of reports on drone strikes. fox's molly hennenberg has details on the war of words. >> reporter: some republicans say president obama should look in-house to find out who has been leaking classified information to the media. >> it's clear from those stories it's came right from
10:31 pm
the white house from the national security council right from the situation room. >> reporter: on the specific story about president obama's kill list where he reportedly approved drone strikes to take out top terrorists, congressman king said that was leaked to make the president look like a tough guy. >> he's trying to be like george patton or george wayne. the fact is no one knows what the president is doing. >> reporter: president obama says the white house does not operate by leaking national security operational details to the media and any suggestion to the contrary he says is offensive. today the president's top political advisor said the information must have come from elsewhere. >> i think the authors of all this work have said the white house was not the source of this information. i can't say that there weren't leaks. there are obviously leaks, but they weren't from us. >> reporter: the leaders of the house and senate intelligence committees, republican congressman mike rogers and democratic senator dianne feinstein say the leaks have been devastating to the intelligence community and the
10:32 pm
senator says if president obama says he didn't do it, he didn't do it. >> i take the president at face value and as chairman rogers said, the investigation has to be nonpartisan. it's got to be vigorous and it's got to move ahead rapidly. >> reporter: but republican senator john mccain is calling for the president to appoint an independent special prosecutor to determine where these leaks originated. in washington molly hennenberg, fox news. a lot of people braved the heat to head to d.c.'s capital pride festival down by the capitol building today. the event was just part of a longer festival throughout the city over several days. it included entertainment, food, drink, education and even a new art fair this year and it was free to get in. >> actually it's the first time. i was in the military for six years, so this is the first time. >> it means a lot, everybody
10:33 pm
unity, this year with the elections and everything coming out. >> organizers expected more than a quarter million people to attend this year's event. you may have noticed several stores have launched a new ad campaign targeting the lgbt community. gap has a new ad called be one that can be seen across the country including locally on some metrobuses. j.c. penney made a mother's day ad featuring same sex moms and there's a similar campaign for father's day showing two gay dads. we're joined now by jason maloney, media strategist. let's talk about these same sex as. they're not entirely new, but there definitely seems to be more of them now. why do you think that is? >> i think some companies are betting that tolerance is in and they can gain customers by catering to these communities. >> just like when president obama declared his support for same sex marriage, you have to believe that the people behind these ads did the math first. they considered the impact,
10:34 pm
right? >> absolutely. the lgbt community has had a number of successes recently with the repeal of don't ask don't tell. of course, obama's statements in recent weeks and also we have a same sex ballot measures across the country and particularly in player. certainly they did the math and see it's a calculated move. >> so right now the polls show half the country supports same sex marriage. so are they taking a big risk or not really? >> well, again it's a business decision and they're betting tolerance is in. while the lgbt community might be appreciative of companies like j.c. penney what they're most interested in are the fortune 500 companies of america actually declaring benefits for same sex couples and they claim 75% of the fortune 500 companies are on board. >> there's been some pushback. some groups like one million
10:35 pm
moms are pretty much against these ads, right? >> they are, but they're being drowned out online by more than double supporters in the other direction. look, it's not something that's going to be won with a special someday dedicated to fathers or mothers. i think commitment on the part of j.c. penney is a calculated move. they're betting customers will come from nordstroms, from other stores who specifically already cater to these audiences and they're betting that they're going to make money off this. >> now won't the difference be the bottom line, j.c. penney set to announce first quarter earnings tomorrow, in fact. don't they want see if this has been effective because i know their stock prices are down since ellen degeneres started doing promotion for them? >> j.c. penney isn't doing too well and are looking for creative ideas to cater to specific audiences in a variety of communities. i don't think the news will be good for j.c. penney, but i think it's going
10:36 pm

10:47 pm
here to fight this fire. we're going to throw everything at it we can. >> reporter: these efforts in colorado slightly hampered because the largest wildfire in new mexico's history is still burning. the scale of the fire is enormous charring 1,000 acres an sure and those dry conditions could be hatchling independence day celebrations across wildfire prone areas this year, colorado's governor trying to ease disappointment warning the state might not see the skylight up on this july 4th. >> it didn't take long for anybody who headed outside todayton it was going to be something -- today to know it was going to be something different. >> and humidity was a huge factor. hopefully people took my advice yesterday and stayed hydrated and protected from the sun because it can be very dangerous out there. let's take a look outside, a
10:48 pm
beautiful shot of our national cathedral. skies fairly clear, a few clouds rolling in later. we are still under that influence of the ridge of high pressure today. so that is still affecting us as we move into this evening. let's begin with a look at weather headlines. the week will start a little cooler. we'll get a little reprieve from all the hot weather we've had, not that much, but at least a little bit. unfortunately the humidity will stick around like an unwanted houseguest. it's not going anywhere. it will be a little uncomfortable. temperatures stay being into the 80s on the five-day forecast and some -- staying into the 80s on the five-day forecast and some rainstorms as well. we hit 92 degrees today at reagan national airport, 90 at dulles, 94 at bwi thurgood marshall, temperatures eight to 12 degrees above the seasonal average and as far as current temperatures, it's still mild and warm outside, 72 gaithersburg, 80 degrees this hour at hagerstown, 73 cumberland, same at martinsburg
10:49 pm
