4:44 am
story for "vanity fair" magazine, the title shame and survival. lewinsky says, quote, sure my boss took advantage of me but i will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. any abuse came in the aftermath when i was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position." monica lewinsky is 40 now. she has a degree from the london school of economics. but she says because of her history, she has had a tough time getting a job. sonoma county supervisors are calling for one of their colleagues to resign. as kpix 5's joe vazquez reports, it comes after efren carillo admitted to poor judgment involving beer, a neighbor and not much clothing. reporter: >> i have no intentions to resign. >> reporter: for efren carillo, it is far from a warm welcome back to work. >> ask you very kindly and compassionately to consider resigning. >> reporter: it's been 10 months since the cops arrested the 33-year-old sonoma county supervisor. it was the middle of the night, he was in his underwear holding

a beer after breaking the screen of his female neighbor's window. >> i regret what i did. i have apologized publicly. and i will be apologizing privately by letter. >> reporter: last week, a jury acquitted carillo of the crime of peeking. every, single one of his fellow supervisors demanded his resignation. >> you lurked. you trespassed. you tore and you terrorized a young woman, a virtual stranger, a neighbor. and that young woman, please understand, it's not lost on us, that could have been my daughter. >> reporter: carillo says his actions were foolish and he is now getting treatment for alcoholism. >> i think that he definitely should resign. >> reporter: but sympathy is in short supply even among his former supporters. >> no matter what he does now in his career, everyone is going to remember him as the guy that tried to climb into some woman's window half naked and that's creepy and weird and it's wrong and i think he should resign. >> reporter: in santa rosa, joe
4:46 am
vazquez, kpix 5. >> 4:45 right now. let's check the weather. a bit warm today, huh? >> yeah. it should be warmer in spots maybe mid-70s and not as windy as yesterday. the winds blowing to about 30 and 40 miles an hour along the coastline today still breezy but yeah, it's not going to be as windy outside. we'll find a lot of sunshine out the door. mostly clear skies, hazy inside the bay and the valleys. we have a couple of patches of fog near the coastline, otherwise i think toward the latter part of the day becoming mostly sunny and just a little bit warmer. but much warmer as we look toward the weekend. high pressure takes over and we are likely to see an offshore wind especially into sunday. breezy out there but that area of low pressure that's been kicking up the wind is moving further east so it's not going to be as windy as yesterday. temperatures around the state starting to warm up too, maybe 80 degrees in sacramento. 79 in fresno. about 61 degrees, mostly sunny into the monterey bay. computer models picking up on some of that patchy fog toward the coastline. think we are going to see a lot more clouds as we get toward
4:47 am
tomorrow. we have a weak weather system diving into the bay area bringing with it a few clouds but i think most of that rain is going to stay to the north. so enjoy the day today. should be a nice one. 69 degrees in san jose. about 72 in morgan hill. 66 in san mateo. about 59 and breezy in pacifica. lots of 70s even some mid-70s in toward antioch and brentwood today and inside the bay we'll keep those temperatures on the mild side into oakland about 67 degrees. 67 in richmond and 68 degrees in petaluma. next couple of days, we are going to see some cooler temperatures on thursday with some partly cloudy skies. much warmer over the weekend maybe some 90s as we head in toward next week. all right. let's check the roads with elizabeth. and we have a hot spot right now in danville. the right lanes remain blocked for this police investigation. it was an earlier police pursuit with a car down the embankment with two lanes blocked. it's between the el pintado and el cerro exits. number 3 and 4 lanes are blocked so watch out for that.
4:48 am
here's a live look at our sensors. this is eastbound 580 so it is counter-commute coming into san leandro approaching 150th. we have an accident that was a car facing the wrong way, now at least one lane block. we were seeing a little bit of slowdowns in the area mostly in the westbound commute direction. but otherwise, just expect a few delays. if you are traveling the nimitz in oakland 880 everything is fine here taillights, that's northbound traffic past the oakland coliseum. and watch out for high winds crossing the san mateo bridge. chp issued its own high wind advisory. that's what you see there flashing on your screen across the bridge. traffic is moving along okay on the right side of your screen heading out to the peninsula. bay bridge toll plaza obviously is looking quiet so far with no metering lights this early in the morning. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." frank, michelle, back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. it's a sinking feeling for san francisco-based twitter. the company's stock plunged yesterday after early investors sold off a big chunk of shares for the first time. that's because the so-called
4:49 am
lock-up period just expired. it's been a tumultuous month for company. >> whenever early investors get a chance to finally sell their shares in a company, there's a strong likelihood they are going to want to rake in some profits and that's exactly what we saw with twitter stock today falling by 18% to just over $31. that's not too far from its ipo price of $26. >> about 480 million shares were available for trading. that's about 80% of the company's stock. the stakes have been raised in san francisco's white hothousing market. some tenants are being told they have to make over $100,000 to keep from being kicked out. kpix 5's brian webb tracked down the landlord behind it. reporter: at 312 fillmore in the lower haight neighborhood rent requirements have gone through the roof, at least for regular people like this woman, who asked us to hide her identity. >> and people are afraid. >> reporter: she tells me last week, the landlord slipped this note under every door in the
4:50 am
building spelling out a new requirement for residents, a minimum annual income of $100,000. >> why is he coming after you? >> because he wants a better rent. >> good day to you. thank you for calling. this is robert shelton. >> the number you dialed has been changed. [ beep beep ] >> we're sorry -- >> reporter: we spent most of the day trying to track down the landlord robert shelton calling several numbers and visiting several locations. [ knock knock ] >> this is a po box. >> mr. shelton, it's brian webb with kpix 5. we just wanted to talk to you about the rent situation here at your building on fillmore. >> reporter: mr. shelton's address comes back to this building in nob hill, right across the street from the cathedral, one of the highest priced properties in the city. >> the landlord cannot just go and harass tenants like this. >> reporter: tommy mecca with the housing rights committee of san francisco says landlords can make outrageous requirements for new tenants but not the old ones. that, he says, is illegal.
4:51 am
>> so he issues an eviction notice? ain't going anywhere. >> i lived here all my life. >> reporter: this tenant of 23 years says it's simple: a landlord is pressuring the poorer residents to leave the homes they love all in the name of profit. >> i think it's a campaign of harassment. >> reporter: brian webb, kpix 5. >> public outrage apparently worked. a website posted a note saying the landlord sent it to all the tenants, after reflection and guidance, i hereby rescind the correspondence to you. the information contained was flawed. my apologies for the confusion that was created. time now, 4:51. one bay area high school, boys are picking their dates in a draft style. students say it's supposed to be funny. why teachers say it's no laughing matter. >> a wayward sea lion found in modesto is back in the ocean now. we'll take you to his homecoming when we come back. stay right there. ,,,,
