5:01 pm
she is following the money trail. peg. >> reporter: that's right, bob mcdonnell's sister managed those beach properties. e-mails he received from bob and maureen mcdonnell, that talked about johnny williams. the guy who is helping us. he said payment on those loans totaling $70,000 wasn't due for three years and he never saw a payment. now, also today, testimony that bob mcdonnell was endorsing that product to stop state officials. >> what was that like? >> virginia's personnel chief, sarah wilson, testified that governor bob mcdonnell pulled out a bottle during a meeting on the state's health plan and said he used it and that it helped him and his wife. the prosecutor asked her if she had ever seen the governor bring out a product like that
5:02 pm
before. and she said no. she didn't know why he pulled it out, it was personal. >> what was it like? >> lisa hicks thomas remembers it differently. the former secretary of administration recalls the governor saying that anatabloc would be good for state employees and asked them to meet with the makesser of anatabloc, that meeting never happened. mcdonnell's chief of staff, martin kent, testified when the governor drove johnny williams' ferrari, it hut the moral. he asked the governor not to do it again. >> what the government is trying to do is demonstrate the things that martin's camp did not know with events. that's on their perspective important in showing, and being consistent with the narrative they are drawing that is the governor did certain things without being transparent. >> kent also remembered the state police superintendent calling to set up an interview with maureen mcdonnell about allegations that the chef at
5:03 pm
the mansion was stealing food. but investigators instead questioned her about gifts from johnny williams. she had no lawyer present. kent testified that when the governor heard about the interview, he was visibly upset. concerning the revelation that will williams gave the first couple $70,000 in loans. he couldn't talk about it and discussing with counsel. >> on the stand right now, former attorney general, jerry kilgore, who was hired by star scientific as a counsel. now the prosecution alleges he was hired because his brother, terri kilgore is the chairman of the tobacco commission and it's the tobacco commission that johnny williams wanted to fund his state sponsored studies of anatabloc which never happened. we'll tell you what kilgore said on the stand. >> joinings joining us now ght is
5:04 pm
mark shamal. all right mark, so the first two weeks were about what the mcdonnell's got. we are going into the third week about what they allegedly did. so peggy started out with testimony from two staffers. one said the governor took out anatabloc and said hey, i like this. maureen liked it. the others said, he made the case that we needed to meet with star scientific and that we needed to consider the state covering this as part of the health insurance plan. is that the nugget the jury needs to hear? >> that might be right. you identified it as a way of them telling their story. here's the money, you know, that is coming in. the ferrari ride and the watches and all these other things and now they have to get to the meat of it, which this is what he did in return. >> there's a difference between the governor coming into a meeting and sage saying
5:05 pm
hey guys, i tried this product. we like it. >> if you and i do it at work, it's us telling our friends and telling somebody about an experience. he speaks for the state and more importantly, he is speaking to people that make the decisions about where the money is going to come from to fund this. what johnny williams is trying to do is get money for anatabloc and that sounds like it might be enough for an official act by the governor. >> we hear more about these desperate needs for money and we learn that the mcdonnell's weren't just getting money from johnny williams, they were getting it from other people, too. >> that puts together what the government needs to show for the motive. because the jury is going to be up there. wait a second, not going to throw away, he's being talked about as vice presidential candidate. he's not going to throw that away for a couple thousand dollars here and there. we want to paint a picture of how desperate he was. >> what else does he have, other than his official act?
5:06 pm
>> before you go, the governor, you say, is likely to be the last person who testified in this case. why? >> well, i think we talked about johnny williams last week or the week before. we don't want to put one witness up there and point out the inconsistencies. the governor, as a defendant, gets to sit in the courtroom and hear everybody else testify. i'm not saying they are going to do perjury. they are doing it because he has contacts. he hears how the case comes in. he will understand just like the jury will understand when he is being cross examined. >> if they don't trust him, it's a wrap. >> i don't know how he is not trustworthy. if they don't think he's telling the truth, that is the end of the case. >> mark, we'll see you back soon. >> jan. >> right now, we are tracking storms that could make a mess of your commutes tomorrow. first alert chief meteorologist, topper shutt is in the weather center. when are we going to see storms fire up? >> already in the western

5:08 pm
of severe weather. >> all right, some live pictures from sky 9 right now of six flags. yesterday, a ride broke down and made for a heroing day for all those folks at the park. >> i'm jim at six flags in maryland where thrill seekers got a ride they were not expecting. the jokers cho seung-hui live had had up to its name in one regard. mechanics cho seung-huied by technicals that stranded 24 of its riders. it took hours to rescue all of them being saved one by one with the of ladder trucks. part of the problem is that when you release a restraint on the individual cars, everybody in that car is in a released position. we can't allow that to happen. so each one of the people in the cars is going to get harnessed and stapped into position. >> six flags website says the ride includes a side winder loop, a corkscrew, and countless swift reversals until it all came to a halt.
5:09 pm
darren johnson who has a season pass for the park told us getting stuck son rides isn't uncommon. >> some days you may not be able to ride the super man because it did get stuck or some days you won't ride the joker too. >> what's in it tonight at 6:00. jim, wusa9. >> the six flags is cooperating with maryland inspectors and there is an on going inspection regarding what happened to that ride. riots, anger, and a plea for peace tonight after a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teen in a st. louis suburb. these protesters took to the streets of ferguson today, demonstrating their anger over the shooting of michael brown. police shot brown multiple times on saturday after an encounter between brown and another man outside an apartment complex. >> this is a very complicated
5:10 pm
investigation, as it should be. a man lost his life. there's a police officer involved in this. there are scores and scores of people we needed to talk to at the apartment complex where this happened. >> last night, a candle light vigil turned chaotic. rioters burned vehicles, taunted officers. more than 30 people were arrested. the fbi is investigating possible civil rights violations and brown's family hired the attorney that represented the family of trayvon martin. now to the latest on iraq. named a prominent shiite politician. maliki after his eight years in power, but maliki has signal that he will not give up the office. u.s. air strikes took out more isis terrorists. making drops to civilians. in gaza, the first day of

5:14 pm
a commuter alert that might drives you crazy. one direction is playing a packed show at nats park tonight. gates opened a few minutes ago. the concert starts at 7:00, but you can expect parents to drop off kids at the concert during rush hour, so you might want to avoid that area if you can.
5:15 pm
go in a different direction, perhaps. all right, nascar driver, tony stewart is at the center of a police investigation. 20-year-old, kevinward, jr., gotten out of his car to confront him. >> police are in the middle of the investigation. this is an awful story. how this will affect the future of racing whether this anger can sometimes be stirred up during the course of a race contributed to this awful tragedy. >> we have seen a lot with sports in general. unfortunately, something bad has to happen for changes to be made and racing will go on, no problem, but there will be plenty of changes. the future of tony stewart still up in the air, of course. the accident happened during a super sprint cup race in upstate, new york. it was during caution. stewart's car was going 45- miles per hour. this is amateur video.
5:16 pm
we aren't going to show you the point of impact. police in new york as well as the district attorney are currently collecting more video and witness statements. some who say stewart revved his engine as he got close to ward. both cars have been seized. investigators are trying to reconstruct what happened. there's no evidence that stewart intended to hurt ward and there's nothing that warrants criminal charges. today, in richmond at redskins training camp, wusa9 caught up with a race car driver, brendan gone, about what this means for his sport. >> no matter what way you look at it, it's a shame and a travesty. a lot of times you have to find changes in our sport after things like this happen. so you figure out, you know, it is -- don't get out of your race cars and as a driver, you know, there's things on both sides that can be learned. >> some days, even in football, you know. it took a lot of people getting head injuries for them to make a better helmet and make
5:17 pm
changes to that. it always takes an injury or an accident or some, you know, we're going to learn from this situation and sadly, sometimes it costs us life when it does happen. but hopefully thing wills be learned and hopefully this situation won't be repeated. >> big changes could be coming to racing in general. they will most definitely look into implementing a new rule that prevents drivers from getting out of their car, and the sheriff and ontario county says a lack of lighting could have played a factor. such conflicting witness statements. >> he was mad because stewart knocked him into the wall. it was more of a confrontation, like you know, i can't believe you did that kind of thing. >> this is not a big race, obviously. more of a hobby >> the day before a big nascar race, he does a little sprint car race on the dirt track, which are different race cars. the back is bigger than the front. so maybe, you know, i'm not giving him excuses, but there are so many factors that go
5:18 pm
it's such a strange case. >> there's no evidence just yet that he actually intended to hit ward. may have just been an awful accident. >> that's according to the sheriff's office. >> all right, kristen, thank you. always watching, always tracking. wusa9's first alert weather. >> all right, live look outside. it is our live michael and son weather cam. there's the cathedral still getting repairs. 82 right now. the dew point is pretty low. 61 degrees, relative humidity below 50%. as the showers get closer, they are eating up dry air and we'll have showers across most of the metro area. heaviest activity in the yellow and the orange, leks of orange here and there. now we are seeing some lighter activity push as far to the east as fairfax county. pretty heavy rain. pretty steady rain toward martinsburg and toward winchester and on the doorstep of brunswick and about to cross
5:19 pm
over i-270. further south, mainly light, but you see the flecks of yellow. heavier activity south of fairfax and i-66 and now approaching tyson's and mcclane. it's going to slow you down a little bit tonight. go out 66. you have rain and showers. this is a pretty heavy little downpour, a brief downpour south of fairfax. everything is moving northeast and that will move afroes fairfax proper and all of this activity will head toward poolsville on our storm tracker at 5:36 and germantown at 5:59. so, nothing severe or heavy tonight. yellow alert tomorrow for storms. showers for some on the way home tonight and both commutes tomorrow will be wet and effected. grab the umbrella and allow extra time and just take it easy on the way home tomorrow night. 5:30 in the morning, there are your showers. the heavy activity seems to be north of us. heavy activity building down to the south and west of us. by 6:30, wet roads everywhere.
5:20 pm
even coming in on 50 and certainly coming in 66 eastbound. by 7:30, now we're seeing heavier activity along i-81. winchester to laray and by 8:30, some showers in the metro area. nothing crazy heavy right now. and by lunchtime, look what happens. look at the reds. this is a good line of showers and storms to culpeper and manassas. is and extending across the river. so, some of these will have heavy downpours and gusty winds. and by 4:00, much of the metro area getting pounded. now with heavy rain. possibly gusty winds and keep temperatures down in the upper 70s tomorrow and by 5:00, heavy activity goes across 95 into southern maryland. and it will be hefty and heavy activity as you are going up 270. and by 5:30, really getting heavy into prince georges county and also into southern maryland. i agree with it. this is an updated model and picked up on this and some of the activity will be heavy and it could be severe tomorrow.
5:21 pm
6:30, look at all the reds. all the way through southern maryland. so, get ready and walking to lunch will be interesting. 70s to start. temperatures don't go up much at all. 78 by 1:00 with scattered showers and storms. yellow alert tomorrow. all-day storms and morning clouds on wednesday, and nice. 83. lows in the 60s. some upper 50s possible again in the suburbs on wednesday night. nats back in town friday, very nice. low 80s. heating up a little bit. isolated storms with highs around 90. >> new concerns tonight about antibacterial soaps and their effect on pregnant women and their unborn babies. we'll tell moms-to-be what you need to know in just a little bit. >> we're going to tell you about a big-time mass transit plan in montgomery county.

and now pho the race for d.c. mayor. picked up a key endorsement today. this morning area afl leaders threw their support behind the ward 4 councilwoman. bowser squares off. rapid transit could be on its way to montgomery county. counties for transit showed off a bus on loan from fort collins, colorado. that is the bus right there. in 20 cities across the country. buses like this have their own lanes and last year, the montgomery county council passed a measure that allows for 80 miles of rapid transit corridors. they would operate at the capacity or speed of a metro line, but with lower costs and certainly more flexibility. according to the executive director of counties for transit, this is just the first hurdle for rapid transit corridors in montgomery county. >> the next step is to now
5:26 pm
start researching each of these corridors, doing some engineering studies and once you do that, then you say well, can we find space for the dedicated lanes for transit? how much is it going to cost? >> based on previous projects, it could take four to five years to complete those corridors and the cost could be anywhere between $5 and $20 million a mile. >> the old road was driving you crazy and the fix will be the same. vdot is repaving 8 miles of georgetown pike from the beltway to springvail road in great falls. so crews will be out every night through thursday from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. and on friday and saturday from 9:00 at night to 9:00 in the morning. that work is expected to take two months to complete. at least it's at night. >> that's right. kids all over the area will be going back to class in a couple weeks. a little later, i'll slow you big ways to save on your back to school shopping. plus, a maryland teenager

5:44 pm
excessive or impulse spending to a minimum. >> the annual tradition of shopping for her 8 and 18-year- old school aged kids has taught brown some valuable lessons. >> i comparison shop before i purchase anything. >> according to the national retail federation, families will spend on average more than $660 on back-to-school expenses this year. so down loading apps to your smart phone will help you rack up even more savings. >> it allows you to scan the bar codes on various items so you can comparison shop, online versus some of the local stores in your area. >> coupon sherpa and retail me not are two more tools that will search and upload coupons to use when you check out at the cash register. broaden your search to save and don't limit yourself to just big box stores like target or wal-mart. school supplies are typically cheaper at office supply stores. for example, notebooks and folders for anywhere from 15 to
5:45 pm
30 cents during their back to school promotions and that's a really good deal. >> a new outfit to wear on the first day is always a thrill, but you don't have to break the bank to buy a winning wardrobe. brown says shop the kids closets first, then purchase only what they need. >> there are a lot of end of summer sales going on. so you can score deals on basic things, like jeans, t-shirts, shoes. >> do your homework ahead of time and you'll save on back to school all the time. >> and the savings don't stop there. consider swapping items with other families. you still have time to follow your favorite retailers on facebook and twitter and take advantage of those student discounts at stores like apple, dell, and microsoft. they will lower prices on laptops and they may even throw in a gift card toward the purchase of other school related items. now you know and just in time for school, the tax-free shopping season is underway in maryland. so from now until next saturday, all clothes and
5:46 pm
shoes, $100 or less, are exempt from the state's 6% sales tax. but, back to school supplies are note included in tax-free week. >> keeping your family safe. wusa9's first alert weather. >> whole long list. >> bowling ball. >> isn't the whole point -- >> you can't have everything. we give you clothes, we give you shoes, be happy. >> be happy, all right. we have a yellow alert for tomorrow. showers and thunderstorms and i'm getting concerned about the potential for severe weather tomorrow between 4:00 and 8:00. let's start with a lisk outside. clouds are here. it's dry here in northwest, but storms are moving in and rain is moving in from the west. live look outside. it's our live michael and son weather cam. we are showing you boats and i would urge not to be on the water tomorrow, especially on the bay. right now it's 82. relative humidity only 49%. that's actually pretty good for
5:47 pm
us. winds out of the south, southeast at 11 and because the air has been fairly dry, it has taken awhile for them to cross over 270. no trouble crossing over i-81. that's good rain fall across much of winchester and into hagerstown and now also into charles town. just about to get heavier over on 15 and eventually will cross over i-
5:48 pm
extra time and grab the umbrella. you're going to need it for the morning and you'll need it for lunch and coming home. so 6:30 in the morning. we have showers, generally light. heavier activity denoted in the orange and the yellow out to the west and then by 7:30, we still have to deal with the wet commute. the heaviest activity, at least in the early morning hours will be along i-81. by 8:30, we still have showers. a fleck of yellow over in howard county, but by and large, again, from hagerstown south through winchester, that's the heaviest activity. look what happens. by 1:00, look at all th pop up between culpeper and into leesburg. that's heavy activity and then by 4:00, about 23 hours from now, some big-time showers and storms rolling through and i agree with this. the computer picked up on this and this is drew. the atmosphere is unstable tomorrow. we have a trigger. we have the cold front rolling in. southeast winds. that could cause problems. i would again, allow for extra time going home. maybe stay late and wait for
