i or will i ever endorse any sort of illegal or unethical behavior. at no point did i take this person seriously. he struck me as eing unstable and joking. and for only that reason did i humor him in hindsight. i should have immediately walked away making it clear that there is no place in the electoral process for the suggestion of a legal -- illegal behavior, joking or not. as can you imagine, we had a few keys for patrick and his father and spent the day looking for them. we started for headquarters for arlington democrats around the corner from where the video was shot in hopes to fine someone who can put us in touch with patrick moran. no one knew how to reach him and a spokesperson didn't return phone or e-mail messages. from there, we went to his shirlington apartment and where none answered the door. the next stop is the campaign headquarters on north washington street in alexandrea, where the only thing we found was a locked
door. the congressman's pyrotechnic was not returning calls -- press secretary was not returning calls or e-mail. we were told the congressman was not in and that no one could talk to us. this afternoon, the arlington gop chairman, his name is charles hawkinson, called for jim moran to resign. i'm going to bring in a democratic activist. i'm sorry, strategist and a slip of the tongue there. this doesn't look good, does it? >> and today they trying to get the facts to figure out what is happening. sure, they want to be careful with what they say. >> how damaging is this? >> and this is hard to say. he resigned which, i think is appropriate and arlington is a democratic area. i think he will be ableso
tosurvive this. >> and the other odd thing, he was not responding to questions for interviews today, the press secretary didn't respond to phone calls or e-mail and that is unusual for an elected official to duck the media like that, isn't it? >> it's unusual andy haven't talked to them, i don't know the reason. maybe they trying to get all of the facts. normally, you want to get out there and get your side of the story out there. >> jim moran gets elected, you think? >> i do. i think he will. >> brandon daily. thank you very much. back to you. >> how much weight does this statement from his son hold when he said he was humoring that guy? that went on for 18 minutes. that is not humoring him. >> and i looked at the tape myself and it went on for longer than 18 minutes. go online and watch the entire
thing, if you want and for time we had to quit it down. individually, doesn't look like he's humoring him but that he is playing along with it. the police and prosecutor's office seem to think the same thing. >> we'll put it online and let everyone else decide for themselves as well. >> right. and it's been two weeks before the election day. president obama's getting a big endorsement from retired general collin powell. mitt romney remines on the attack and spend his day in the critical battleground state of ohio. >> reporter: a busy day out there and the presidents in the middle of a non-stop, 48-hour marathon. this brought him to our area in virginia and while mitt romney continues to hail the president on jobs and economy. president obama thanked collin powell for his endorsement. the former secretary of state who said he is a republican,
also endorsed the president in 2008. mitt romney, meanwhile, made several stops in battleground state of ohio today and ending up in worthington, north columbus -- worthington in columbus and speaking with about his policies being a failure. >> the president's plan, keep on spending more than we take in, a trillion more a year and this is putting a burden on you and will crush the american dream if he's re-elected and that is why paul ryan and i have a plan to get america on track to cut spending, to cap federal spinning and to get us on track to a balanced budget. >> i was proud and him bowled -- humbled to learn that we have collin powell's support in this campaign. i'm grateful to him for his lifetime of service to the country as a soldier and diplomat and every brave american who wears this uniform. >> and in his endorsement, he
said mitt romney's views on foreign policy were inconsistent. they conservative. and late this afternoon, the romney campaign announced they were going to move to counter the powell endorsement today announcing that senator mccain is going to be meeting with veterans in fairfax in woodbridge, virginia, tomorrow afternoon. a reminder this evening at 6:30, fox 5 news edge you decide 2012, focuses on local and national candidates on the issues during the of the campaign. i will be your host and with tom fitzgerald. the political analyst mark plotkin. the news edge on maryland today. gallaudet university getting hit with heavy criticism from both sides of the gay marriage debay. after the university suspended the chief diversity officer for signing a petition to put the issue before maryland voters today, dozens of activists from both sides gathered at school entrances in northeast and outraged at the school's decision to suspend angela mccaskill. >> she has a right under the
u.s. constitution to sign any petition anywhere in the country and not get punished for it. >> all she did was to exercise her right you were the maryland state constitution and to exer as the -- exercise the civic duty and that is a major injustice, we believe. >> and in a statement, the university said she is suspended with pay and they're talking with lawyers and student groups about the situation. hurricane sandy threatening to tear through the east coast. the storm made landfall in cuba. maximum winds, 114 miles an hour and there are predictions that 90% of the east coast could be in affected in some form or another. gary mcgrady joins us now with the weather center. >> and as we have -- definite, the east coast is going to be greatly impacted by this storm. and it's continuing to move up to the north. there is still a lot of
