6:01 pm
to arrive on campus. even before the start of school, university officials have already emailed students about a possible new public health threat. monkeypox. >> they emailed us, telling us that they are aware of the situation and that they will keep updating us, if anything changes or if we needed to do anything. leanne: the chances of it spreading might be low for now, but it is certainly on the minds of students. >> yeah, i have seen it online and stuff and i have been paranoid about it lately. seeing how it is growing. >> hopefully, it does not get bad, but it seems like there might be, you know, college kids are going to be very affected by it, just because of our closeness and like you mentioned, the partying and the nature of college. leanne: the gender you identify with does not put you at risk for monkeypox. anyone can get it. but because most of the now 500 moneybox cases in san francisco are men having sex with men, the chances of getting infected if
6:02 pm
you are gay are higher. >> if a college student as a gay man, all beasley, that is something to worry about. leanne: a gallup poll found generation see adults identify as lgbt, a higher number than millennials. the vast majority of people attending college art generation is the adults. some students say their response to monkeypox is similar to what they experienced with covid. >> i try to avoid large social gatherings and wearing masks in public places is the best way to go about preventing the spread of monkeypox. and still covid-19. leanne: monkeypox is not like covid, which generally spreads through the air. therefore, a mask would not be beneficial. >> this is about prolonged skin to skin contact. by prolonged, i mean an hour. this is not something that you get by rushing by somebody. there has to be, you know, the vesicles have to be ruptured. it has to be on the skin of the other person, this is not subtle
6:03 pm
stuff. leanne: students we spoke to said they would get a vaccine if they were made available to them. ama: another thing to consider is that monkeypox requires a longer isolation time and covid. and this may be a challenge for both the students and universities. now also late today, we were told by the entire uc system that they will be working with local health authorities, but that each campus -- and remember, there are 10 of them, would be reaching out to their own communities regarding planning. leanne melendez, abc7news. dan: a tricky time. thank you. ama: local politicians or try to put pressure on the state and federal government to do more to combat the spread of monkeypox. sacramento state senator held a meeting. tim johns sat in on the meeting and has more details. tim: this comes after the city of san francisco and state of california already have declared states of emergency over monkeypox, but senator wiener
6:04 pm
tells me this afternoon with the spread of the virus there is still much more that can and should be done. a line stretched on the block at san francisco general hospital. people lining up since the early hours of the morning, trying to get the monkeypox vaccine. >> in san francisco, i'm at high risk. with covid i don't like risks. tim: san francisco is reporting over 500 cases of monkeypox. as the virus continues to spread, so too is the urgency to get the outbreak under control. on tuesday afternoon, state senator scott weiner held a special hearing in sacramento urging elected officials to do more. >> we need to continue to push hard, to make sure that our state, federal, state, local health authorities are directing the resources where they are needed most. tim: among other things, weiner says his office has submitted an emergency budget request. he wants to use the money to help support local public health departments.
6:05 pm
he is asking for changes in regulations that would allow county and community clinics to use covid funding to help them address the monkeypox crisis locally. the senators calling for vaccines to be manufactured immediately and sent to the state. >> unfortunately it's going painfully slow in terms of gradual increases in supply. tim: because without tough action, weiner fears monkeypox could be here to stay. >> extremely concerned that monkeypox will become endemic in the u.s.. i think it is heading in that direction. tim: today to the san francisco department of health has received 23,000 doses and it'd asked for 35,000 to meet the need. vaccinations will continue tomorrow at sucker berg san francisco general hospital on a first-come first-served basis. until they run out. there has been no word on when more doses might arrive. in san francisco, tim johns, abc7news. ama: thank you. dan: we have everything you need to know about monkeypox, including vaccines, symptoms and treatment. we'll find it all on our
6:06 pm
website, ama: now to tonight's i team exclusive, they san mateo county board of supervisors is calling on the state attorney general to investigate sheriff carlos for sending a team of investigators to an indian batmobile garage. dan is back with the latest. dan: the sheriff now confirms much of my reporting. a wealthy realtor and donor asked him to help get the battle billy ordered but was delayed. carlos insisted actions were proper but a candidate for congress is calling on him to resolve -- resign. they have asked the state attorney general to investigate the propriety of the batmobile raid. >> the aim is to have the attorney general conduct an investigation. we also know that that takes a long time. and so, we decided as we would also do in an independent investigation at the same time. dan: sam asked sheriff carlos to
6:07 pm
intervene because the $210,000 batmobile replica he ordered was delayed. he sent a lieutenant, sergeant and two deputies to raid the batmobile garage in logansport, indiana on july 19. >> what are the charges? they say there's money coming in from two sources to the same car. i said no, no, no, no. this is sam's car and there is no other money on that car. dan: they arrested him and charged him with two felonies, obtaining money by false pretenses and diversion of construction funds. they froze his bank account. >> it is like a self-fulfilling prophecy. they say im not building the plaintiffs car, but then they freeze my account, so i cannot build the plaintiffs car. dan: the sheriff confirmed much of my reporting in this memo to all personnel yesterday. that a -- that he knew sam as a business leader and sam
6:08 pm
contacted him personally, asking him to launch an investigation. the sheriff ordered the four-man team to raid the batmobile garage in indiana after getting search and arrest warrants approved by judges here and in that state. they said the plan was to have two of the investigators arrest him and bring him to california. and the other two to load his batmobile onto a trailer and escort him to san mateo county. doug is not only the president of the board of supervisors, he was also san mateo county sheriff for 14 years. >> do you really need to have that kind of manpower? especially looking at the prior looks like an elderly man. you can find them at church on sunday. >> could you also not put the batmobile on a truck and send it out here? do you need two guys to accompany the vehicle? >> no. dan: the sheriff defended his actions in the memo saying i would make the same request for our investigators whenever a potential crime of this nature
6:09 pm
came to my attention. district attorney steve wagstaff is considering whether to throw out the case and agnostic paid toward the replica, but they say with the realtor missed a payment and lost contact for more than eight months, he moved him from the front of the list to last for the nine batmobile's in production. wagstaff was purchasing nine baseball bats. >> for very good reasons, the one you want, the first babe ruth bat got sold. and if you get one of the others, it's no different. dan: how did this criminal case get so far? i obtained the lead investigator's affidavit for probable cause. it betrays the business transaction as a theft case. and lead investigator, lieutenant michael, leaves off most of his title. he is head of the auto theft task force and gang intelligence unit. he writes only that he is commander of the san mateo county narcotics task force. >> people in the bank get this warrant for the bank account,
6:10 pm
which they have now frozen. >> yes. >> and it is a narcotics unit. that's got to be a narcotics case. so you understand how that might play in? >> no question. it is a question i do not have the answer for because it's not my office, but it's a good question. dan: another good question, do any of the public officials involved no him socially? >> i'm not kidding, that was my exercise. he played in an adult league that i would referee now and then treated so i got to say hello to him. dan: as for donations, sam was a 16% partner in investments. they gave $1000 to steve wagstaff or his campaign. another thousand for carlos's campaign, sam is a lieutenant level donor to the sheriff's activities league for sports, meaning he gave between three and $5,000. he also gave 1000 to wagstaff's campaign and wagstaff, his campaign and his wife the $3500 to the losing campaign for sheriff.
6:11 pm
it is all too much. >> it's a business dispute and why are you doing this? i believe the sheriff should resign. dan: the saratoga councilmember pete out six councilmembers to challenge for district 16. he tells me his campaign calling for the chair to resign as drug a code >> >> with voters. here's a guy whose assets have been frozen's. they're not going to be able to feed their families. i'll know what's going on. that is a travesty. >> he did file the lawsuit in san mateo county, but it was dismissed because the judge said indiana is the proper venue. his attorney told me today that he has instructed him not to pursue the manner of indiana civil courts. ama: wow, what a story. dan, thank you for following up on this. and you have a story for the abc7news i team, good team or you can call 1888 40i team.

these years later, a suspect has been arrested. abc7news reporter zach fuentes has more on the break in the case. zach: it was a cold case that haunted those who knew and loved karen. it also never left the minds of the generations of police detectives who worked on the case. >> before becoming a detective, i heard about cases that still haunt the retirees and still bother them and stick with them. this being one of them. zach: that is detective matt. he was not alive at the time of the murder, but he is the man largely responsible for we suspect being caught. they say that on thursday night, september 2, 1982, karen took a bus from her home to sunnyvale to visit her boyfriend. i round midnight, her boyfriend brought her to this intersection so she could catch the bus back home. her boyfriend was out past curfew and ran home after seeing karen walk for the bus stop. for years, he was the last person to see her alive. her body was found the following morning. >> a delivery driver had found

6:21 pm
leslie: a year from now, we could be using a nasal spray to keep from getting covid. not just current variance, but even future mutations. it is new science emerging from uc berkeley that researchers there are ready to take to the fda, to start human trials. it is a team effort that does not target the spike protein on the covid virus like current vaccines do. instead, this new treatment targets the part of the virus, the nucleus, as it attacks human cells. >> the virus actually reprograms the cell into its own copy machine. it is a trojan horse, it ejects the rna from the virus into the cell and that rna makes copies of itself and all the other stuff that the virus needs. so binding molecular velcro to the violence -- virus. tiny snippets of dna binds to specific sequences in the viral
6:22 pm
rna and gums it up. it's is very different from previous efforts. leslie: the newly developed spray is designed to prevent infections even from mutations. if someone already has covid, than it could be dispensed from something like an asthma inhaler, so it gets down into the lungs and decreases the severity of the illness. no refrigeration is required, so it could have global implications. uc berkeley scientists are ready to move forward with clinical trials if all goes as predicted, and it could be available for use by the fall of 2023. in berkeley, leslie brinkley, abc7news. dan: coming up next, a step forward for america. the action president biden took today that is vital for

>> building a better bay area, moving forward, finding solutions. this is abc7news. dan: a new state report says edd is wrongly denying benefits to hundreds of thousands of unemployed workers every year, even though they are clearly eligible. ama: the report by the legislative analyst's office studying what happened even before the pandemic, when claims overwhelmed the edd. dan: 7 on your side's michael finney is diving into the astounding findings. michael: it is astounding really, as you guys have heard over and over again, i have reported about the pressure of claims during the pandemic when millions of workers were left with no benefits. this report shows edd wrongly denied or delayed 6 million claims during the crisis and it goes further to say they routinely disqualify hundreds of thousands of eligible workers every single year. even in normal economic times. >> i was disqualified. and i had no idea why and i never got the money.
6:31 pm
>> i spent the first two months try to figure out why it was disqualified. >> while we determine your eligibility, continue to stand by for benefits. michael: they were eligible for unemployment during the pandemic. >> i got nothing from them. >> i try to do everything to keep myself above water, but i'm sinking because the edd is not taking care of it. michael: all were denied until they got help from 7 on your side. lawmakers want the system to work on its own. >> the experience that workers have had during the pandemic, with this program, has really highlighted the need to civil five. to prioritize getting benefits to workers. michael: they wrote this report, saying edd policies tend to deny benefits to workers, even though they are clearly eligible. among the findings, edd improperly delayed or denied benefits to 6 million workers during the pandemic. the agency had been disqualified workers -- does qualify workers
6:32 pm
long before that. between 2014 and 2019, 250,000 workers per year appealed the denial of their claim. half of them won their case and cut their benefits. however, after 300,000 more workers did not try to appeal. >> the appeals process is difficult and they gave up. michael: the report assumes many of them would've won their case. so that left at least half $1 billion unpaid to workers who deserved the money. >> we think that somewhere between $500 million and $1 billion each year is probably unpaid to eligible california unemployed workers, who were denied benefits. michael: the report says edd makes applications too complicated. they put too much weight on stopping fraud instead of delivering benefits. it favors businesses over workers and screening who is eligible for benefits. >> we know little about why the permanent denies claims that
6:33 pm
were turned over on appeal and our office believes it's in our best interest to learn more about that. michael: legislative analyst's presented findings to lawmakers, who may now propose more changes at the ed with the aim of getting those unpaid benefits into the hands of eligible workers, who have been going without them for all of these years. i will keep track of this and i will do a follow-up report. i want to hear from you. send me your stories about buying a home, a car, paying off alone, anything to do with you, your family and money. i want to hear about both your trials and frustrations. go to on your side to share them. i will tell you, that is a lot of money that is not going to people who deserve it. dan: a billion dollars a year. and all of this emphasis in this report suggests that stopping fraud, yet they do not stop fraud at all. michael: it does not look like it. if they actually do, but while. dan: thank you very much.
