case. the criminal case is still pending, but the widow sued d.c., the department corrections and halfway house saying they should have done more to notify folks thisan escaped. >> it sounds like there was failure on a number of levels. what is theartment of corrections saying? what is hope village saying if anything? >> because of the lawsuit, nothing. the department of won't comment on active litigation. most governments don't. hope villages notresponding. we know from our investihitions that is not first escape from the halfway house. we found 300 escapes from that halfway house just since 2016. >> that's unbelievable. who is looking into those? >> the u.s. bureau of prisons has oversight as part of the justice department, the federal level. that's about one of every 18 halfwayouse escapes in america happens from one spot on ngston spot southeast in d.c. >> all righty. you'll be staying on top of it. >> we will. we're going to take a break and be right back.

going forward th. this is somebody who will have oversight with changing the direction of prince william county as a whole. i say that because of who the chairman has been, cory stewart, he got a lot of attention for having ties to white supremacy groups and now somebody on the board will balance that out and show a different side of things, the people clearly are in favor of tha we'll see where it goes from here on out. >> you actually had two candidates of color running for the seat. >> right. to have the two going after p ts onition shows where the county has come up with the past many years and where it wants to trend to go, going trward. >> ny face each other. >> that's right. >> they may face each other if he winshe -- >> right. that could go forward in november. er nove the family of a woman allegedly sexually assaulted at a senior living facility is suing.
family members claim employees at chevy chase house waitedly ne a week to call police and notify the woman's family. the woman sufrs from dementia. the story was disturbing on so many levels. many of us have elderly relatives or family members that we pced or that have been cared for in facilities like these. scott, bring us up to date on what the i-team discovered. >> let me remind folks who don't have a family member who is impacted by this. when you have loved one in assisted living, you are often paying that out of pocket each day. sometimes a couple hundred bucks a day out of your pocket forin assisted l care. there is a lot of people that react to the initial story that an assisted living facility, chevy chase house in d.c., was under scrutiny for how it handled a sex misconduct investigation inside the bedroom of one of its residents, a woman with dementia. the family o the woman filed suit alleging they didn't quickly respond t allegations there was a sexual sconduct
case. internal d.c. department of health records show there was me lag in reporting that to the management and then ultimately a whole week went by according to the department of health before the police werer calledhe family of the woman was called. that family has filed suit ying that's unacceptable and sued for a million dollars and no comment to the suit f chevy chase house, but the chevy chase house did say their i licens in tact, they follow regulations and retrained their e since. the t >> can you tell us how that construction worker wound up back at the facility, back on the job while this was being discovered. >> on ail 6th, a year ago this eek, april 6th, 2018, housekeeper says she saw that construction worker from on site in the woman's bedrm, three days later that construction worker was seen again on that floor of the building,till on the job. construction company, chevy chase house, expined how that
came to be, but that is part of the lawsuit, family wants to know how a person who is considered auspect potentially in s misex misconduct case is bk on scene days later. >> they not only didn't report in a timely manner, they're supposed to report to a regulatory agency, the ealth regulation and licensing administration? >> yeah, in the d.c. department of health, has oversight over assistedceiving resid and same is true in maryland and virginia. these are regulatedindustries. but there are also in addition to regulations there are oinen rnal protocols, you go to work, your bosses have a protocol. what they're supposed to do, if there is a suspected case of sex misconduct. the inspection of the chevy chase house specified you have internal res and guidelines you're supposed to follow and they don't believe those were followed either. >> has anything come of the
police investigation? >> theheolice close case. one of the reasons was the victim with dementia did not have clear memories of what happened. so made it difficuo push forward with the case. >> it shouldn't happen. >> it shouldn't. it is interesting because there have been similar cases in virginia, just this past year there were two incidents involving a worker at one of these care facilities. it caused a lotpl of p hesitation in where they're putting their loved ones. my own grandmother, suffering th dementia, and you start to rethink it. people are having aononversation themselves too, who exactly is in charge of our loved one's care, do we know about them, do we know who is subbing for them these are all questions coming into play and awill only increas each of these incidents start to come to fruition. you u mentioned the cost, know, man a couple hundred dollars a day, certainly several thousand dollars aonth that n be coming out of pocket. there is also the lossf a sense of trust. when you place your vulnerable loved one in a facility like that, do you have to totally
trust the people taking care of them? >> yeah, that's why it is called assisted living. they need assistance for daily functions of their life. yeah, had you seek this play out for your mom, dad, grandma, gr dpa, you think about these things, can i trust these people. such a profound moment in life to make a decision like that. i think that's why this series of stories by the i-team resonated with so many folks, so many of us can relate. >> can you tell us how she's doing? >> her health continues to deteriorate and the lawsuit alleges this exacerbatedit, she's having panic attacks and hallucinations and worsening dementia. we know she was moved to a new place. >> and david, thank you, both. that's reporters' notebook. m pat lawson muse.

send all these people to sanctuary cities or to the state of california. now, it is not like there is not precedent for this. in the past, when we had refugee overflows, i grew up in miami, i member them with cuba, with ities, you do ask comm minneapolis took in somalis when we were helpi withthat. so it is not an unprecedented idea, but to do h it the ways talking about feels a bit -- a bit, well, as somebody set to- us >> a redacted version of the mueller report expected this week. how much more redacting can it get? >> i assume, you know, i assume fight about e to what we're not seeing in the mueller report. it doesn't seem as if democrats will be satisfi with whatever barr puts out. barr is not exactly winning a lot of trust with democrats how
he's handled things so ifar. so think no matter what he turns over the skepticism is only going to leade to m demands for more. so we'll uecontinue, i we'll be debating the release of the mueller report for months. >> what else can expect on the show today? >> i got a presidential candidate as well, jay inslee, he's running climate change only focus. he's governor of washington state. although a state that is -- they're saying we'll take t migrants. we'll also have that tiersaon >> and mayor pete is expected to announce toory. >> m pete announces today. we had him last week in studio. a lot of people are buzzing about him. >> how do you see the field right now for the democrats? it seems almost you can't keep track. >> you can and you can't. bernie and biden over here and then there seems to be a race where there is going to be room at t end. i believe we'll get to a final four type of situation. bernie and biden feel as if they're over here. and it is going to be a race of who are the other candidates.
clearly there is an outsider type of candhtate. we tho beto o'rourke. oday it looks like pete buttigieg. next month may be somebody else. we may go through a flavor of the month for a while until demoats -- they're shopping. they're shopping. and don't think they won't keep shopping. >> the reqerement is you h to have a name hard to pronounce. >> it is a lot eas are going, that guy. learn how to say it. buttigieg. boot with t edges. >> thanks, chuck. reminder, you can see "meet the press" every sunday right here at 10:30 after "news 4 today." a lot to look out for today. thank you, chuck. news 4 is working for you morninour money this tomorrow is the deadline to file your 2018 individual tax returns for the irs says more than 58 million taxpayers still haven't filed. consider this your notice. a tot of 153 million individual tax returns are expected this year. thefu average rend to date is

>> when millionaires get a taxc the middle class pays. >> the trump tax reform gave rmanent cut for high income earners and corporations to spur job creation. but many use thosefo cuts one time bonuses and stock buybacks. others like guy who os guy chemical in rural pennsylvania, say the tax cuts enabled him to buy mor equipment and raise some wages. d work ave laid the gro for growth, not only today, but also in the coming years. >> taxing the wealthy is likelyt to be a button issue on the 2020 campaign trail, with many democrats calling to repea the trump tax cuts. that position supported by 46% of americans. >> no country is going to have a safe sustainable economy without the masdle >> with the top 1% holding 90% of the wealth, something has to change to close the growing income gap in america.y is it so personal for you? >> i love the country.

that's right. jardiance significantly reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event for adults who have type 2 diabetes and known heart disease. that's why the american diabetes association recommends the active ingredient in jardiance. and it lowers a1c? yeah- with diet and exercise. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration, genital yeast or urinary tract infections, and sudden kidney problems. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. a rare, but life-threatening, bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. so, what do you think? now i feel i can do more to go beyond lowering a1c. ask your doctor about jardiance today.
