5:33 pm
clinton factord prominently in both g.o.p. debates. this was chris christie in the undercard version. >> hillary clinton is coming for your wallet. >> reporter: the phrase "deportation force" carries stark imagery, even more stark than mitt romney's self-deportation. republicans long-anxious about the trump effect on the party are fearful of a 2016 sequel. >> rose: major garrett in des moines, iowa, thanks. john dickerson is our cbs news political director and the anchor of "face the nation." john, during that debate, a lot of attacks on hillary clinton. why? >> reporter: well, all the candidates were auditioning. if primary voters vote first on ideology do, they agree with the candidates on the stage on the issues, they also vote on electability. can they imagine those candidates going all the way, going the distance to november? so what they were doing was trying to give voter as glimpse of how tough they'd be on
5:34 pm
against her in the general election. >> rose: and jeb bush said during the debate the republican debate on immigration is creating high-fives in the clinton camp. >> reporter: what bush meant is the democrats benefit with minority voters when republicans boast about deporting undocumented workers. ted cruz said he found that offensive and that he, ted cruz other ands, are just trying to enforce the laws. but bush may have literally been right when he said that during the debate because brian fallon, the clinton press secretary tweeted, "we are actually high-fiving each other right now." thank you. john will moderate the democratic presidential debate saturday night at 9:00 right here on cbs. today, forensic teams began recovering and identifying nine people killed yesterday when a business jet crashed into an ohio. don dahler is there. >> reporter: the charter flight ended in a fireball in

"we are shocked and deeply saddened for the families, colleagues and friends of those who perished." as many as four homes were destroyed but no one was injured on the ground. paul raider lives next door and ran to the scene when he heard the impact. >> it was fire, fire and smoke. i didn't even see wreckang or anything. it was so intense. >> reporter: the real estate group was scouting potential investment properties and had made several stops. it's still unclear why the plane crashed here. >> best friend, yeah. >> reporter: jeannie ferraia's 50-year-old sister diane smoot was one of the passengers. >> she was very excited because it was the first trip she had ever made with the executives, and the tragic thing is, the plane had all the executives for the company on it. i don't know if there were any left in the office.

5:37 pm
he allegedly doled out an alarmingly high amount of narcotic pain medications to patients. yet, the v.a. still paid houlihan a $4,000 performance bonus last year, taxpayer money he kept after being fired earlier this week. the v.a. paid out $143 million in performance bonuses to employees in 2014, even though several of them were under mismanagement. the list was compiled by the house veterans affairs committee and its republican chair jeff miller, who said it's evidence of the v.a.'s disturbing trend of rewarding employees who preside over corruption and incompetence. but in a stairnlgt the v.a. said it needs to pay bonuses to attract and retain top talent and notes it did suspend payouts last year to some senior executives following revelations that employees falsified wait lists to meet targets. v.a. secretary bob mcdonald said the agency has made progress but congress is in the way. >> my vision is being held
5:38 pm
hostage by politics. and what i'm trying to do is to work with the members of the congress to leave politics at the door and focus on veterans. >> reporter: now, charlie, mcdonald needs congress to approve a more than $1 billion funding increase he requested to help overhaul the v.a. to serve the 23 million veterans in this country. >> rose: thanks, margaret. two fantasy sports web sites said today they'll fight to stay in business in new york state. the attorney general there whistled them for illegal gambling exprded them to stop taking bets in the state. vladimir duthiers is following. >> fanduel's one-week fantasy football leagues are paying $75 million a week. >> fanduel and draff kings have become cash cows bringing in $1 billion in entry fees. both companies spent over $200 million on ads that seemed to run nonstop during football games. >> this is the fantasy football season that could change it all.
5:39 pm
>> reporter: the sites were exempt from a 2006 federal law that banned online gambling because, they argued, their contests involved skill not luck. but after investigating the two companies, new york attorney general eric schneiderman is calling a foul. >> it's not some new variation on the traditional fantasy sports. it's just a variation on illegal online gambling, and you can't do that in new york state. >> reporter: fantasy sports players like eric gioseffi believe schneiderman has gone too far. >> i don't think it's going to work out well for him at all. >> reporter: six other states have banned online fantasy sports for money but according to industry research, nurk state has more daily fantasy players than any other. >> the aggressive marketing, the instant payout the fact you can do it on your phone anymore-- this is a very tempting venue for anyone who has gambling addiction problems. >> reporter: today in a conference call with reporters, fan dual's c.e.o. said the
5:40 pm
option >> reporter: draft kings and kings and fanduel have five days to respond to the cease and desist order and both companies said they plan on chemicalling the period until then, they will continue to paid contests to its new york customers. >> rose: we were reminded again this week that cell phones can be dangerous in the hands of young people. there is a new case that involves sexting. the case is on long island in new york, but it could happen anywhere. >> when i got the video i didn't know what it was. >> reporter: 15-year-old a.j. fenton and kieran failin said they were supported from school for opening a sex video on their smartphones sent to them by a group text message. >> ting happens often. >> 20 long island students were

5:42 pm
discovered over the years is anything that you put out there on the internet, whether it's something you're posting publicly or something you're sending privately, exists somewhere. it can never truly be deleted. >> reporter: looking back, kieran and a.j. admit there's one thing they could have done differently. >> good chance i'm not opening it at all, just deleting it right away. >> reporter: a lesson they didn't expect to have learned in school. jericka duncan, cbs news, long island, new york. >> rose: coming up, debt from student alones could ruin retirement plans for millions. the out-of-this-world offer for the blue moon diamond. and one small panda takes one
