inspiration to others and certainly is indicative of her desire to be an inspiration to others. >> reporter: former green party presidential candidate cynthia mckinney who came to the vigil to offer her condolences says pettigrew would have been a force. >> she was a candidate for a party that represents peace and now more than ever we need peace. so natasha was a role model. >> reporter: pettigrew was training alone for a triathlon. it was during a bike ride early sunday morning along route 202 in largo that an suv hit her. the driver did not stop but hours later called police to stay she thought she had hit a deer. pettigrew's bike was still stuck in the grille of the suv. >> there's still a bunch of questions that we all have especially once we finally saw the actual site. it still don't make sense at all. >> reporter: family and friends say they want to focus on petty grew's life and not her death, so in song and prayer. >> bless her, bless her as now

capitol hill. the fake newsman testified in character at a house subcommittee hearing today tackling several important issues, among them illegal immigration and migrant farming. fox 5's matt ackland has the story. >> reporter: it was a media frenzy, a long line of journalists and members of the public lined up inside the rayburn building, the hearing room filling in minutes. >> i certainly hope my star power can bump this hearing all the way up to cspan 1. >> reporter: it started out well but just as he does each night, colbert tackled serious issues with a large helping of sarcasm. >> america's farms are presently far too dependent on immigrant labor to pick our fruits and vegetables. now the obvious answer is for all of to us stop eating fruits and vegetables. >> reporter: you might be thinking what does a popular comedian know about illegal immigration and migrant farming? well, not that much. the reason he was invited to testify today is because he volunteeredwork as a migrant worker for one day.
>> i have to say and i do mean this sincerely, please don't make me do this again. it is really, really hard. >> reporter: there were a few half smiles and a couple of chuckles from the house members. some even appeared uncomfortable with colbert's remarks. >> i would like to recommend that now that we've got all this attention that you excuse yourself and that you let us get on with the three witnesses. >> i'm here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she would like me to remove myself from the hearing room, i'm happy to do. so. >> reporter: colbert stayed and answered several questions after his statement. we caught up with a spectator outside. >> we've had lots of witnesses here from the media and the entertainment world. talking about all kinds of things. so i don't -- and he didn't really say anything disrespectful. >> reporter: some republicans have publicly said democrats
were wrong for inviting colbert to speak about such serious issues, but others say colbert used humor to bring attention to things not talked about enough. >> i trust that following my testimony both side will work together -- sides will work together on this issue in the best interest of the american people, as you always do. >> reporter: matt ackland, fox 5 news. >> joining us now to talk more about colbert's testimony is allison mcsherry, a reporter for the capitol hill paper roll call. you were there today. justine bateman from family ties testified on neat neutrality before congress. she can barely figure out -- on net neutrality before congress. she can barely figure out twitter. what's the big problem with stephen colbert? >> no one really knew what they were going to get, an earnest serious stephen colbert or the character from the colbert report and it turned out to be the latter and i think frankly, it shocked a lot of people. >> it's easy to be stereo typical and blame the republicans for not having a sense of humor, but it was tell
cat jon conyers who tried to kick him -- democrat jon conyers who tried to kick him out. >> i was in the hearing and frankly, it was pretty tense. i think a lot of people were floored by the way he handled himself. i don't think everybody was really expecting him to kind of do a tongue in cheek approach to this, but yeah, conyers did ask him to leave and chairman lofgren said it was okay for him to stick around. he stayed. he delivered a great stand-up performance. don't know if you'd consider it a great performance before congress, but it was certainly something to see. >> from their point of view, i mean does it make a mock riff congress or does it do what celeb -- mockery of congress or does it do what celebrities should do which is bring attention to this? >> that's really the big question here. when you look back, elmo has testified before congress on behalf of children who are into musical education. so it's really a hard question to answer. it runs the gamut from expert to celebrity, but in the end of the day a lot of people watched
today and we're paying attention to the immigration issue. i don't know how often that happens. >> i guess the entire premise here was a joke. it was a comedian talking about his one day working with migrant workers. if we back out of this a little, does this perhaps set a bad precedent? >> that's a very good question and like i said, the precedent in the past is there are celebrities in the hill every week testifying on behalf of things, some of whom have a lot less experience than mr. colbert's eight or 10 hours in the field. so it's kind of a run of the mill occurrence on the hill. i think the big difference this time around was that stephen colbert is so well known and was such a comedian about it and took a very different approach than usual and that's really what drew everyone's eyes to him this morning. >> i think some people would say it was refreshing to see. we appreciate your time, thank for coming in. for more about today's testimony you can head over to www.myfoxdc.com and watch more of the hearing for yourself. coming up tonight drug dealers try to slip 21 pounds

right here in this neighborhood, i grew up learning strong families and hard work means opportunity. and that starts with good schools. it's a tradition here in maryland-- and why in these tough times i've put education first. we've made record investments in our classrooms... doubled the number of charter schools... and we've frozen college tuition for four years in a row. and it's working. experts say we now have the number one schools in the nation. when it comes to expanding opportunity in every neighborhood, i know that we must do even better.

came through dulles airport wednesday night one really stood out, especially to law enforcement. what looked like packages of chocolate was anything but store bought candy. >> of course, when they opened it up and tested the products, it turned out to be marijuana. >> reporter: concealed in 20 packages of individually wrapped chocolate was 21 pounds of marijuana, estimated street value $17,000. >> take off the cardboard and it had a foil on there. you peel off the foil and it's right there. it was all marijuana, about i want to say eight bricks of it. >> reporter: the bricks were in an individual mailbag heading from mexico city to new york when a canine unit caught a whiff of the drug. >> it's always a surprise the way they try to conceal it because people can get very resourceful. >> reporter: customs agent say they make about one bust per month here at the airport and not all of those busts involve drugs. >> some of the more strange things that i've seen are monkey's heads. we see live crabs all the time.
that's not that weird. people bring in their cultural foods. >> reporter: that's why investigators say it's important to have the highly trained canines inspecting everything including international parcels, luggage, contraband and explosives. >> people obviously want these items or they're willing to pay for it anyway. so they'll get it here any way they can. >> reporter: reporting at dulles wisdom martin, fox 5 news. more charges tonight against a man police nicknamed the preppy burglar because of the way he's dressed. they arrested jeremy hall yesterday at his home in silver spring after this surveillance video generated a tip. it shows hall allegedly breaking into april house in highland, maryland. police say -- a house in highland, maryland. police say hall is facing charges from a second burglary stemming from a break-in at a house in spencerville back in august. the gloves are coming off at the governor's race. o'malley and ehrlich unleashed a round of tough new ads

>> reporter: professor leonard steinhorn of american university says unlike 30 second tv ads the web videos can be as long or as nasty as they want to be. >> i think they can get away with some more outrageous visuals than they might be able to do on television. >> reporter: but while we often hear politicians denouncing negative advertising, you'd be hard pressed to find any apologies in this race. in fact, governor o'malley says his online strategy is an important part of getting out his message. >> i believe that's probably the best thing that our campaign has going for it. >> reporter: robert ehrlich was in st. mary's county friday and his spokesman said of the o'malley campaign he can't run on his own record because it's a record of failures. so they're just trying to distract voters with these web attacks. in ellicott city, tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. here we go again, the president of iran once again raising eyebrows. coming up next what he said about the 9/11 attacks and why he was not happy when he gave

millions and millions of americans by claiming that the u.s. government had a hand in 9/11. quite frankly, sir, how could you say such an insane and nutty thing? >> would you address your own president the same way? >> reporter: president mahmoud ahmadinejad wasn't very happy with the way the interview started. the iranian leader claimed his statement about 9/11 is one of three theories on the attacks. do you believe that the government had a hand in 9/11? >> i did not give an opinion of my own. i actually suggested that a fact finding group and mission be formed to delve into the truth. that's why i proposed. >> reporter: al qaeda officials have taken credit. osama bin laden has taken credit. it seems very clear. >> that's fine, but the fact finding mission can shed light on who the perpetrators were,
who is al buyed? who is it backed by and -- alibied? who is it backed by? >> reporter: the president had -- the president said well, it was defensive and hateful for him to make the statement just a little north of ground zero where families lost their loved ones, people of all faiths and ethnicities who see this as a tragedy of this generation, for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable. i talked to the president ahmadinejad about a wide range of issues including eye rap's controversial disputed nuke -- iran's controversial disputed nuclear program. he again claims iran does not want a nuclear bomb. he also said iran does not support terrorism but he did wish the american people well. another story that has people talking tonight, auto workers caught on camera pounding beers during their lunch break. their co-workers sound off on the scandal coming up next. also ahead.

>> it's going to be hot most of the night, but it will be cooler for the weekend. how about that? you'll be shocked i think to realize how much cooler it will be by this time sunday. temperatures on sunday will be some 25 degrees cooler for highs than what we had today believe it or not, but again it's very mild, very muggy out there. it's still 85 degrees right now in the city. in september at 10:00 we're talking about temperatures in the middle 80s, quantico 83, gaithersburg 82, dulles the same, a couple of 70s out there, one with martinsburg at 78 degrees. record high temperatures today all around, reagan national 99, dulles 97,bwi marshall 95 degrees. this is interesting, 99 here in d.c. and along the east coast from philly right down into south carolina all real hot today, everybody in the 90s.
cincinnati hot, 92 degrees. there's cooler weather, though, back to the northwest of us, but i wanted you it see this. we were almost as hot today here in d.c. as what they had in phoenix at 101 degrees for a high there and we were warmer than las vegas. they were 96 for a high today. so definitely the concentration of the heat is right here along the east coast for us, but notice today's high in minneapolis 61, bismarck in the 50s today under the banner here. so there is some cooler air. it will eventually be sliding on down. it's coming in a couple of ways. we get a little bit in here tomorrow. still going to be warm, high temperature of 87 degrees, but look at sunday, temperature for highs only in the lower to mid- 70s. looks like we'll stay dry on sunday, but we will be mostly cloudy, limited amounts of sunshine and that will help to keep the temperature down, too. on monday and tuesday we're talking about temperatures staying in the 70s to right around 80 and a lot of rain it looks like coming in for monday and tuesday around here, but that's good.
we need it. 87 tomorrow, again plenty of sunshine, winds a bit breezy out of west, 10 to 15 miles per hour, much cooler with mostly cloudy conditions, but staying dry at least for sunday. now maybe by sunday night we'll have a few showers starting to come up from the south and southwest. good today, hot conditions, loads of sunshine. we are completely dominated by high pressure. back out to the west tonight, though, a couple of showers moving through ohio into west virginia, western sections of pennsylvania. these will all fall apart, though. we have may see a couple of clouds from these showers, but i just can't imagine how this comes across and brings us any rain and by the way, here's front no. 1 moving in tomorrow morning and it will begin to cool things down a little by tomorrow afternoon. here is front no. 2 and that will be coming in late, late tomorrow night into early sunday and that will help to bring temperatures down even more. so loads of sunshine, especially for the first part of the day tomorrow, mid-70s to
start, 83 at noon and 87 for a high temperature tomorrow right around 5:00 or so. here's tomorrow morning, a couple clouds at 9 a.m., later in the day plenty of sunshine. sunday the clouds come in. it will be cooler sunday, but all things considered it won't be too terribly bad, especially after that 99 today and the rain stays to the south until monday. a wet monday commute and the rain sticks around all day monday and at least into portions of tuesday and in terms of had that rain gets here or gets out, how much -- of when that rain gets here or gets out, how much rain we get, the confidence on that forecast is low, but it does look like we're going to get the rain again monday and tuesday. so enjoy the cooler weekend. tomorrow will be real nice. a reminder on this hot day of the lingering costs of winter. fema is giving millions of dollars to d.c., maryland and virginia to cover the costs from snowstorms last december and february.
