7:08 am
three-term texas congressman who lost a u.s. senate race last year would be so interesting. it's because when you talk to democratic voters and activists and the rival presidential campaigns across the country, one name keeps coming up, beto o'rourke. they see him as unpredictable and able to raise big money. here in iowa, a poll over the weekend put him in fifth place behind biden, who is set to join the race soon, and senators sanders, warren and harris. o'rourke loss to ted cruz last november was the closest margin in a u.s. senate race in texas since 1978. despite the defeat, o'rourke raised more than $80 million for his campaign, a record sum for a senate contest in this country. he did it in part by sharing virtually every moment of his campaign on social media. since leaving office, he has taken his followers along on an
7:09 am
appointment to the dentist. it was quite a reveal. back to new york. i know you have news related to this. >> you are right. as soon as this show is over, getting on a plane heading to cedar rapids, iowa. maybe i will see you on the road ater today. we will sit down with beto o'rourke in iowa for his only national tv interview about his decision to run for president. you can see that tomorrow, only on "cbs this morning." it will be interesting to be on. i remember on "60 minutes," he said i'm not running. it would not be good for my family. this was the time when he was running for the senate race in texas. >> they never pay price for that stuff. it's all the vice-presidential candidates. there's an old adage, your best day is the day you are announcing. he got a favorable profile" "vanity fair." he has had a glowing start.
7:10 am
campaigning are long, brutal and grim. it's going to be a long road. >> his voting record skewed more to the center than progressive. the internal debate within the party will continue. >> there's lots to discuss. a major winter storm described by meteorologists as a bomb cyclone is blasting parts of the country's midsection. powerful winds combine with snow are creating blizzard conditions. in colorado, the governor declared a state of emergency. an out of control car killed a trooper helping a stranded drie driver. 22 states are under alert for dangerous weather this morning. we have details of the extreme weather. >> reporter: this storm hit denver with rare intensity. look at this car. it was crushed by a tree during the hurricane force winds. this morning, thousands of people are still stranded here in denver as the denver airport

7:13 am
that makes it a bomb cyclone. the center around nebraska and yet a severe risk for possibly tornados from michigan to alabama. talk about the ingredients. to get a storm, you need a few things. a clash of air masses. we have all this super dry desert air in red clashing with this moist gulf air in blue. you get a storm. that's just one reason the storm is so strong. the other reason is how well formed it is. typically, you will have a center of circulation at the ground, a center high up in the sky. the closer those two get to each other, the stronger the storm becomes. with this one, they are basically on top of each other. that creates a tunnel for air to rise. the faster, the stronger the storm. as that air rises, it pulls in air from surrounding areas. it's rushing down the rocky mountains. you get record setting wind gusts. snow is not that big with this storm. by denver standards, not much at all. 7.1 inches. maybe that's the fact that people are caught off guard.
7:14 am
it's the wind that's the key factor here. when it starts gusting over 35 miles per hour, we have had more than double that, visibility collapses. you can't see me. this is when you get a blizzard. this is what we have. >> he is okay. thank you. a student who allegedly benefits from the massive college admission scandal is speaking out. the son of a marketing executive said i was unset i was unknowingly involved in a scheme. the scam allegedly helped students get into eight top universities through cheating and bribery. usc in los angeles is one of the schools. carter evans is there and joins us. a lot of people saying, what were they thinking. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are a growing number of resignations and apologies in the wake of this scandal. at the same time, lori loughlin, one of the parents accused, she appeared before a federal judge.
7:15 am
lori loughlin was released a $1 million bond wednesday and is due back in court later this month. >> remember, be yourself and talk to me like you would at home. >> reporter: she and her husband along with felicity huffman are among dozens of parents charged in connection with the estimated $25 million college admission scheme run by william singer. a hedge fund ceo arrested, stepped down from his position wednesday. according to court documents, he and his wife paid singer roughly half a million dollars to help their two daughters, his oldest who was admitted to georgetown, gloated about having a proctor sit side by side with her and fix her answers. >> she doesn't belong her. >> reporter: jane buckingham is accused of paying $50,000 for a proctor to take the a.c.t. test in place of her son jack. jack says, i have been advised
7:16 am
not to speak on matter. i take comfort in the fact that this might help finally cut down on money and wealth being such a heavy factor in college admissions. mark rydel faces fraught and d money laund eriering. >> i just want there to be a system that's fair to everyone. >> reporter: this ucla student says it will take drastic action to level the playing field. what would you like to see the school do? >> it would be fair for them to get their admission revoked because it's -- it shows you that the school is for integrity. >> reporter: here at usc, officials say they are reviewing each student associated with the alleged scheme on a case by case basis. as for those who are implicated who are applying for next year, they're going to be denied admission. >> cartcarter, thank you.

for the care of aging parents. the financial burden often falls on adult children. nearly three in ten americans with a parent 65 or older say they have helped their parents financially in the past year according to a 2014 survey. we spoke to jessica buday who has provided financial support to her 64-year-old father living in another state. i'm always saving. i know that it's important to save for retirement. as soon as you start working. >> reporter: 33-year-old jessica buday spends a lot of time planning for retirement. not just her own. >> sometimes it's a bit awkward because you feel like you're the child, it's now becoming more like a parent figure. >> reporter: after filing for bankruptcy several years ago, her father mike is rebuilding his finances. >> these days we're talking a lot about what his retirement might look like. there isn't going to be a substantial amount of retirement savings to live off of. so it will be kind of a fixed income situation. >> reporter: jessica, an only child of divorced parents, now
8:33 am
acts as a safety net for her father. >> if there were to be a major medical expense, that could be something where he would require some support. in the last year, he has purchased a condo, so i do provide some support to ensure the transaction could happen. it was the same if not cheaper than renting. >> reporter: jessica dipped into her own savings to help purchase the home. she and boyfriend sean factor in support like this when planning their own future. >> we don't know where we may have to make a big investment. it could be because of supporting a parent. it could be that we want to buy a home. maybe even because of past experience with my family we are more on the conservative side of our budget. >> cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger writes about caring for your aging parents in her book "the dumb things smart people do with their money: 13 ways to right your financial wrongs." she's also a certified financial planner. jill, good morning. jessica's worried about her father. you say you're worried about
8:34 am
jessica, why? >> i mean, i think she did an amazing job. she actually had a tough conversation with her dad to kind of figure out what's going on. she created a plan, she talked about renting versus buying. but i'm worried because now i'm thinking, well, wait a second, she used this money for her dad's condo. what about her own place of residence. what if she wants to buy, now she may be prevented from doing some things that she wanted to do because her dad needed help. >> it's her dad. >> it is her dad. and i want her to take care of them. if i could wind the clock back, i would have said, look, i know renting might be a little more expensive, but i would have rather had her kept the liquid, the extra money floating around. as she said, she might need it for him, she might need it for herself. >> having gone through this migrati myself, the medical expenses, they are kbroerdnary, and they -- extraordinary, expect you have to make choices about someone you love dearly and your pocketbook. >> yes. i think that the reason why we
8:35 am
want to raise this as an issue is that we want to foster conversations. because what you're trying to figure out is, hey, mom, dad, tell me how you're doing. are you living paycheck to paycheck? gayle and i were in the green room saying it's hard for parents to share that information. they may not come to you. you want to figure out what's going on, do they have an emergency reserve fund. what are they thinking about for their own housing. do they want to stay where they are? are they going to move in with you, are they going to maybe try to rent for a while. let's get this information out so we can all be prepared. both generations. >> why is it such an awkward conversation? i don't think parents want to ask their kids for help. and i think -- i was raised in a house that you don't discuss money with your parents. >> yeah. i think that this is a real issue because i think that there is a bit of shame around it because if i'm the parent, i don't want to put that burden on my kid. on the other hand as a child, you don't want to be seen as kind of nudging your parents. so what i say is you've got to
8:36 am
have these conversations no matter what. we want to reveal the information. we want you to be transparent. we want you to get the -- the bottom line. what can we do to actually prepare for this. if you don't know how to start this conversation, the best thing -- >> give me a script. >> exactly. here's what you do -- you say, i was watching "cbs this morning," and an interesting segment about this. you use that as a trigger or say something about someone you know. hey, my friend's mom just moved in. you might say, it's tax season, how did you do in the tax season? how are you doing? >> and jill, how stark should one be in these conversations? because i mean, you don't want to go all the way to, you know, when you're in a nursing home are going to be okay sharing a room? i mean, it can get brutal pretty fast. >> yes. i think that the first way to have the conversation is to know that you're having a conversation, but you can't be judgmental. you don't want your parents to be judgmental about you. you open the door, you have a conversation. you nudge it open. then once it's open, you don't
8:37 am
push too far. again, what are you trying to figure out? how are you doing day to day? what do you have in that emergency reserve? and by the way, what are your plans going forward. if they push back, guess what -- don't go there. the door is now open a tiny bit, you can walk through when necessary. be kind to one another. this is really tough stuff. >> kindness always works. you say retirees make common financial mistakes that impact their kids. what are you talking about? >> one thing i think is incredibly important, that there are a lot of people who are just putting their homes in their kids' names. this can be very dangerous. there are tax consequences to doing this. a lot of people are doing it without their kids knowing. so before you make a big financial decision like i'm just going to put the house in my kid's name, make sure you talk to somebody. get some third party to help you out. >> i will say, jessica is lucky to have a boyfriend like sean to help her father out. he's a keeper. >> yeah. jill, thank you. >> if you have questions about

making a plan to care for your aging parents, head over to "cbs this morning" facebook page and jill will answer some of those questions. if you have been misled by past financial advice or bought a home when you should have rented, consider sharing your story to help other viewers. you can find a submission form at cbsnews.com/costlymistakes. padma lakshmi, "top chef," is opening up about her difficult journey to success. in our ongoing series "note to self," she writes a deeply personal letter to her younger self about the hardships that she overcame and why she turned to cooking. she's you know when you're at ross
