are investigating her allegations. that is the latest live from the plaza this morning. greg and rosanna, back to you. >> thanks, robert. that was one of the most surreal moments i can remember when we heard from eliot spitzer, 2008 i guess it was, when he made those admissions. this is a guy who we thought could be president of the united states. i think we have video from that day. rosanna, you were on air when that happened. >> i was on air, and at that point, you know, eliot spitzer was a force to be reckoned with in albany. he was talking about being a steam roller in albany, and then all of a sudden look at what happened here. >> okay. >> and then his wife just standing by, looking like, you know, she'd seen the worst thing in front -- you know what i mean? >> i know. she kept her composure. >> shellshocked. >> we'll see what happens next. ed mangano is the county executive, is he involved in a
>> he says someone impersonated his social media accounts and printed out lurid text message toss a public relations woman. both claim those printouts are fake. she says she doesn't even have mangano's cell phone number. the police department says its intelligence unit and electronics squad are investigating, and ed mangano is calling for an investigation, by the way. he's furious. >> he says he's a victim in all this and, yeah, looks that way. all right, you heard about that horrible case in staten island, a man allegedly stabbed his girlfriend and children. well, he's in custody right now. >> yeah. a judge denied bail to michael sykes. he pled not guilty to first-degree murder. prosecutors say he went to the ramada inn in the willow brook section last tuesday and stabbed rebecca cutler 40 times. he killed her and two of her young daughters, the third is in critical condition. her name miracle, by way. mr. sykes was arrested in queens
e believe one of -- i believe one of these kids he killed was his daughter. >> antonin scalia, associate justice of the supreme court, died over the weekend at 79. it looked like he died in his sleep, probably of a heart attack, at a west texas ranch. he was there to do only hunting and relax over the weekend. >> now everybody's trying to figure out who's going to take his seat, you know? president obama wants to pick somebody right away. republicans are vowing to filibuster it until the next president. >> and we're also learning more about this man. some of us did not realize that he grew up in new york city, from queens. went to high school here in manhattan. had nine children, by the way -- >> how many grandchildren? >> 36. >> god bless him. >> isn't that amazing? >> let's bring in stacey delikat, she has more. >> we haven't even heard about funeral arrangements, but that is not stopping politicians. they are wasting no time over who should replace antonin scalia and who could get to decide that.
justice antonin scalia left an el paso funeral home yesterday bound for his home of virginia. the 79-year-old was found dead on saturday at a west texas hunting ranch of natural causes. flags in the nation's capital and around the country were lowered to half staff as tributes to the long-serving conservative justice poured in. >> we didn't see eye to eye on a whole lot of issues, but he was one of the finest legal minds that 20th century and 21st century have known. >> by and large, his opinions were well written, and he's going to be very, very difficult to replace. >> his replacement already the topic of intense debate. president obama says he will nominate a justice to fill the vacancy, but republicans say a new appointment should wait for a new president and have vowed to filibuster any obama nomination. >> i think we should wait until after november before we move forward. the president can nominate whoever he wants, but the senate's not going to act, and that's pretty clear.
republicans in the senate and on the campaign trail have already pledged to block any replacement that president obama nominates. >> scalia himself weighed in on a possible successor on fox news sunday back in 2012. >> will you time your retirement so that a more conservative president can appoint a like-minded justice? >> i would not like to be replaced by someone who immediately sets about undoing everything that identify tried to do. >> -- i've tried to do. >> names now being floated, perth garland and patricia ann millet, all three serve on the d.c. circuit court of appeals. also circulating on some lists, new jersey senator corey booker, of course, the former mayor of newark, also attorney general loretta lynch who also has ties to our area. as for the timing, the white house will only say president obama will nominate someone in due time. so -- and when he does, we know
>> thank you very much, stacey. 1953, xavier high school, which was a pretty serious, pretty serious school. >> right. >> and, rosanna be, here in in "the new york times" a picture of his boyhood home on o'connell court in hell -- elmhurst, queens. >> he loved to say he was an italian-american from queens. >> if you're thinking about the job for the supreme court, technically, rosanna, you don't need a law degree. you don't. you just have to be a citizen. >> something else we can aspire to. >> there are no official qualifications for becoming a supreme court justice. the constitution spells out age, citizenship and -- this is from the history channel, by the way -- for becoming president or member of congress but no rules for joining the nation's highest court. >> other things that are happening around town, the house passed a controversial bill that would give the 9/11 memorial and museum in lower manhattan up to $25 million a year.
>> that would mean that the federal government would operate it, is that the issue? the park service seem to do a good job, but for those who have been following the story and the families of those lost on 9/11, they have a lot to say, understand write so, about this. >> plus there's concern about how much people are getting paid. don't forget, to get into the museum if you're not a family member, it's $25. a lot of people have been very upset about that entrance fee. anyway, the bill has to go to the senate. if approved, it would be the first time federal funds go towards an operation. >> i think the memorial and the museum itself, they're both magnificent. >> it really is. donald trump backtracking a little bit of what he said over the weekend about jeb bush and his family. >> >> so he was in the debate on tuesday night and, oh, man, he was wild even for donald trump, calling ted cruz a liar and jeb bush a liar and saying that the government plied about weapon -- lied about weapons of mass destruction.
>> he got some boos, by the way. yesterday mr. trump says he doesn't blame mr. bush for the 9/11 attacks, but he still thinks the war many iraq was the mistake. >> i tell the truth, okay? there were no weapons of mass destruction. i'm not blaming anybody, i'm just saying he went in there, he thought there were weapons of mass destruction maybe or maybe he didn't, okay? but he thought -- and there weren't. so i'm telling the truth. >> but you said he lied -- >> and chris wallace followed up. like the night before he was a bit more intense about using the word "lie," but anyway, it was an interesting debate. rosanna. >> did you hear that i believe w. is going to go with jeb bush and campaign in south carolina? >> and in a place like south carolina, that'll help. today is presidents day, by the way. how about a little hail to the chief, huh? should we look at another presidential home in our neighborhood? >> okay. >> let's see, what have we got this time? it's a repeat, rosanna, but it's a cool one. here's president obama, and
house in our neighborhood? >> i would love to see it again. >> oops, here we go. he lived in an apartment -- >> do you know what floor? >> i think it was the third, but i'm not sure. this building between 94th -- on 94th between first and second. he was here in 1981, i believe. he was living in this apartment, and there were only -- he was fourth in line for the presidency at that point. >> wow. that's why you've got to love america. all right. let's talk weather, mike woods. >> all right. yeah, the weather around the tristate, man, it was cold over the weekend, and it still is outside. skies look gray, and they have that grayish tone that suggests snow. guess what? we have some coming up here. so far nothing in the rain gaming, it's all try dry. so far. 41 is the average high, 29 is the average low, and we drop down to 13 at one point, 18 at central park, and we have a winter weather advisory for the entire not only tristate, but northeast as a matter of fact. you've got that winter weather advisory that goes for us here
