7:04 am
and crowded roads. made driving nearly impossible in washington, d.c. last night. gridlocking roads until after midnight. more than 160 accidents in the area turned the nation's capital into a mess. >> i thought that i was going to make it up the hill and then i realized a lot of other people thought the same thing, and here we are. >> reporter: cars that weren't sliding, were left stranded. >> that's the road. there are people stuck everywhere. >> reporter: less than an inch and a half of snow was enough to turn quick commutes into marathon trips to nowhere. >> as you can see, they didn't treat the roads and this is what i'm dealing with. >> reporter: major highways were brought to a standstill as frustrated drivers were angry. the region was unprepared for light snow! >> the traffic, i've been in traffic three hours to get home. ridiculous. i don't understand why they didn't prepare.

7:12 am
90% but i'm not that shmuch of a eisenhower. >> polls show sanders would do better against top republicans this clinton were. her team argues that is just because she is the one taking all of the incoming fire from republicans, a sign, they argue, the republicans still view her as a tougher opponent in the fall. >> nancy, thanks. a british judge this morning, said russia's president likely approved the killing of a former spy. a new report said alexander litvinenko died in london after drinking poisonous tea in 2006. charlie d'agata is in london with more. >> reporter: alexandra litvinenko was deliberately poisoned and assassinated was never in question but this goes further and says his killers must have taken orders from the top, meaning president putin's russia, that can only be one man. on his death bed, he told his wife, putin did it.

suspicion that it really does exist. >> so you don't see it, but you said it's all about the numbers. two scientists are playing around with numbers and they think what? >> they think, this doesn't add up. we need to ask some other folks to take a look at this for us and tell us if we are crazy. sure enough, that is what they gp the cal tech astronomers said you know the idea about being another planet? it's not a crazy idea and it looks like it's really possible. now what they will do is let this information out to the rest of the astro none cal community to figure out what is going on and make sure everything is correct and do the observations. >> some are stepping toward to say they are convinced? >> well, it is -- yes, they are pretty well convinced. now they need the visual evidence to back it up because, as i said, the numbers don't lie. >> how hard is it to get the visual evidence? a number i read in the paper and was interested in. pluto 4.6 billion miles from the sun. >> right. >> this new planet would be

this election is on track to break all spending records. it could likely cost several billion dollars by the end of last year, presidential campaigns and outside groups supporting them raised more than $600 million. between the candidates, super pacs and other committees, that number is going to explode. funded in part from donors. but with all of those groups asking for money, it can be confusing. julianna goldman is in washington with a cbs news investigation that reveals why it's important for donors to do their homework. >> reporter: behind every political solicitation, there is an entire industry of consultants who hunt for donors but times they few vars actually make it to specific candidates. now this technically isn't illegal because, believe it or not no law is requiring pacs to spend money on election reason related purposes. >> a lot of people were older.
7:42 am
>> reporter: kristina and c.j were paid. >> whatever the number, whatever you felt like you could work out of them. >> reporter: they worked for this milwaukee-based telemarketing firm called american liberty group. public records show it was paeds 400,000 by a political action committee called conservative strike force. zubic said one donor said he was dying of cancer so she asked a supervisor for guidance. >> why didn't you tell him this is an opportunity to give one big last donation. >> reporter: give one last big donation before he dies? >> yes. >> reporter: american liberty also solicited money from veterans on behalf of conservative strike force. cbs news obtained this script saying, can strikeforce count on your support of our veterans during these important times? but we couldn't find any money going to veterans causes. we looked at federal records and found since 2011, conservative strike strikeforce and other pacs raised over $33 million large from republican retirees but
7:43 am
only 8% went to the causes they claimed to support. the rest went to a group of companies who used those donations to make more money. is it a scam? >> oh, no question. you just can't say an organization out there that is spending 95% of its money just to raise more money and never has any intention of doing the things it's telling the people that it's talking to that it will do, you can't call that anything else. >> reporter: former virginia attorney general ken cuccinelli was the 2012 republican candidate for governor. conservative strike force used his name in the fund-raising pitches without his approval. he said they made false promises to voters so he sued them. >> they listed four things. they didn't do any of those things. >> reporter: so when donors give to conservative strikeforce, where does the money go? the pac, as well as six others have the same treasurer.

8:13 am
the chain announced the closing of 40 stores across 21 states. its sales for november and december dropped nearly 5%. that's compared to 2014. macy's is under pressure to sell real estate and is looking for new ways to bring in customers. it's opening branches of its discount stores inside its existing locations. mellody hobson is in chicago to sort it out. a discount store inside the store? how does that work? >> this is different. this is a search for relevancy and to drive foot traffic into the store. the idea is that they will put their macy's back stage brand inside of their traditional store, and that value shopper who goes into the discount store will discover the traditional macy's by virtue of going to back stage. now, i have to tell you, this seems like a tall order to me.
8:14 am
i could see the traditional macy's customer discovering the back stage store, but they want to see it happen in reverse. this will be hard. >> we've seen other department stores like nordstrom. they have nordstrom rack where you can get clothes at a discounted rate but how is this different? >> it's different because nordstrom's has worked hard to completely separate the brands of the rack business from the traditional nordstrom's. they've done a pretty good job of it. one way they've done that, they profess that 80% of the merchandise inside of the rack store is actually specific to that store, it's not discounted merchandise from nordstrom's. they actually even charge their vendors with coming up with separate merchandise for the rack business. they also have a long lead time on this one. they have been doing this for about a decade. they have over 100 rack stores. in this situation, macy's will be playing catchup. they have about eight of the back stage stores and they're talking about another handful or
8:15 am
>> mellody, what is the best successful formula for combatting giants like amazon? who has done it right? >> that's exactly right. that's the story. there are a few people who have done it right. i think nordstrom's has actually done a really good job. notwithstanding its stock price over the last year. but if you look at their business, they've done a good job of acquiring online retailers like trunk club. they've done a good job of building out their omni channel business so that you can use your phone to place an order while in the store. they were early there. and then this rack business is a very successful business for them. >> it certainly seems a sign that department stores are not doing so well. how bad is it? >> it's bad. the last 12 months have been really rough. these businesses are down 40% or so. and they've had a lot of pressure on them. it's just a different day. they've got the assault of online. the millennial shopper is not that into retail in terms of

buying clothes. they want experiential purchases like vacations, going out to dinner. and that's a lot to overcome. >> mellody, thank you so much. >> great to see you. >> always good to see you. sarah palin's endorsement of donald trump also launched a debate about fashion. now her decision to wear a glitzy jacket on stage is sparking a very strong response, you could say. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." jacket on stage is sparking interest.
