5:07 pm
now the san francisco examiner is reporting that nick bovas, the man who ran lefty o'douls was billed $1,250 for london breed's float in the pride parade, when breed was still a supervisor. the mayor's office is saying at this point, there is no indication that bovas ever paid the money, and even if he did, the money never went to promote the mayor, instead it was used to promote the pride event. taking part of the pride parade is a governmental purpose, so any request for funds would have been subject to what are nobody as behested payment rules. a standard process for donations for events like these. the amount suggested on this invoice, would be under the behested payment threshold in place at the time. now supervisor matt haney is asking the city it to investigate. >> i think in order to restore the public trust, to make sure the public knows that officials here are are acting with integrity, are following the
5:08 pm

rental. in a statement, airbnb said we're urgently investigating this tragedy, and we're in coordination to offer our full support in their investigation. now there's no word at this hour of any motive, or any relationship between the suspect, and the victim. now sheriff's office still remaining tight lipped other than to thank the gilroy, and santa rosa police department, as well as the alameda county sheriff's office. live in san jose, henry lee, ktvu, fox 2 news. homicide detectives in l.a. say a young rapper named pop smoke was shot and killed last night at a home in the hollywood hills. police say several gunmen wearing masks entered the home and shot the rapper. jackson was taken to the hospital where he laider died. so far, no arrests have been made. there are some local media reports that the shooting was gang related, but so far,
5:15 pm
there's no confirmation of that from police. two 13-year-old boys are under arrest for allegedly starting fires. the fire was started in the town of porterville, located between fresno and bakersfield. the two teenage suspects were booked on arson and manslaughter charges. the library had opened in 1933, and did not have working sprinklers. pleasantville officers accused of leading a man on a chase going the wrong way on the freeway. at about noon today near the intersection of sonol boulevard, and arlington drive. instead of pulling over, police say fry drove onto northbound interstate 680, heading in the southbound direction. officers eventually found fry's
5:16 pm
pickup truck banded on abandoned on the side of the freeway. he was later arrested. the judge told pg and e at a hearing in san francisco, that they should plan to have at least a thousand more tree trimmers to reduce the chances of causing even more devastation. today's hearing was a follow up to pg and e's criminal probation, after their gas line exploded in san bruno, killing eight people, and wounding many others in 2010. since then, poorly maintained power lines have been blamed for starting fires that killed 130 people. people who live in the south bay may have noticed a plume of smoke rising above the santa cruz mountains. you can see that smoke billowing up from santa rosa lea mountain. it's from a controlled burn. cal fire santa cruz says the burn is set to create a fuel break in an area with
5:17 pm
significant fire history. it's one of 35 high priority projects identified by cal fire. the state park was still open to vitters today. all righty, got a live camera up and running right now. it's one of those days. the last couple of days like this. there's the golden gate bridge. no fog to speak of there. fog free along the coast. a little valley fog this morning, but look at that scene just to the north there. you see the traffic obviously, but just the clear skies along the coast, it's been stunning. a couple of weeks, a couple of days. certainly, a month. february has been dry. and really this last week or two has been warm. very spring like. what have you got here? a few clouds. that's cool looking. does it look like much? not really. it's enough to increase the clouds tomorrow though. so as that system comes in, tomorrow's thursday, i think thursday, friday, will be partly cloudy. partly sunny. a little more cloud cover
5:18 pm
tomorrow. then again on friday, but again not, nothing really to write home about, quite frankly. we need the rain. we're heading into one of the dryest februaries we've seen in a long, long time, and many places haven't seen any rain in february, it looks as though we're going to continue in that realm right through the end of the month. so as this goes, we've been talking about it. you've just got to strap in and just get ready for march. it's going to have to be extra productive to get these numbers back. right now, rainfall accumulations, percents of average generally are 50%. so you lose the month of february, which is one of our most productive months. you lose that month in snow too. march, it would be tough to catch back up to 100%. if we were to get to 100%, you'd probably see flood concerns. but we'll see. march is march. february is now almost in the
5:19 pm
books. 65degrees right now in san jose. it's a little cooler today than yesterday. a little cooler yesterday than the day before. we're splitting hairs. spring-like weather. to me, the last couple of days have felt a lot like early april. another live shot, and you see the blue on the bay. what's that tell me? it tells me we haven't seen a lot of wind lately. you've got a lot of sediments coming out of the delta. we haven't seen either rain or wind, so the bay is blue. looks like tropics out there, with temperatures, feels like tropics too. temperatures in the mid-60s. looking at the university of california, a beautiful day, and you know what? tomorrow's going to be another beautiful day. when we come back, we'll go looking for rain. bill thank you. two days of deliberations, and still no verdict if the harvey

5:21 pm
try to win by attacking, distorting, dividing. mr. president: it. won't. work. newspapers report bloomberg is the democrat trump fears most. as president, universal healthcare that lets people keep their coverage if they like it. a record on job creation. a doable plan to combat climate change. i led a complex, diverse city through 9-11 and i have common sense plans to move america away from chaos to progress! i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message.

5:24 pm
exclude me from the courtroom, and said they could call me as a witness. i think that could be under the heading of be careful what you wish for, potentially legal malpractice on their part given what i might say. >> reporter: already represents haley in this trial has attended the trial every day. the 67-year-old is charged with raping a woman in a manhattan hotel room in 2013, and sexually assaulting another woman in 2006. weinstein maintains all of the encounters were consensual. if convicted, weinstein could spend life behind bars, but he still faces more charges in a case in california. in new york, alex hogan, foxnews. wikileaks founder, julian assange is now making a new claim as he continues to fight extradition to the u.s. on spying charges. a lawyer for assange was in a london courtroom claiming that president trump offered to pardon his client if he said that russia was not behind the dnc email leak during the 2016

ask your doctor today, if epclusa is your kind of cure. governor newsom said today no one is immune to homelessness. >> he's promising swift action moving forward. >> certainly unusual that this speech focused on just one topic for 40 minutes, but it clearly emphasizes the importance of the homelessness crisis in the minds of
5:30 pm
lawmakers and people who live in california. governor newsom made it clear, something needs to change, and says he knows californians have lost their patience. >> i don't think homelessness can be solved. i know that homelessness can be solved. >> reporter: in his second state of the state address, governor gavin newsom focused most of his speech on california's homelessness crisis. >> it's a disgrace, that the richest state, in the richest nation, succeeding across so many sectors is falling so far behind to properly house, heal, and humanely treat so many of its own people. >> reporter: the number of people living on the street jumped 16% last year to about 151,000. the governor laid out a plan, which includes emergency actions, like lowering the threshold for conservatorships, as well as the roll out of more housing trailers like these in oakland. >> the next group of trailers, i'm pleased to announce today are headed, as we speak to

5:32 pm
he's slammed california's homelessness issues, threatening federalintervention. as far as prioritizing housing, homelessness, and health, they stand with him. >> his main focus was on those three, so in that case, if we're limiting it to that, bravo. >> reporter: oakland mayor libby schaaf was at the speech. she said it will take the entire region working together to solve it. >> that is really something when you consider that he spent the entire state of the state talking about homelessness. it just shows you the scope. it was interesting to me to show you the republican response, because you can't fix this problem, unless you have a bipartisan solution. >> there was essentially that drive there. they said we are against him when it comes to the high speed rail. we have a number of other issues that we disagree with him. but in terms of homelessness, we're here with him.
5:33 pm
the republican senators say part of the problem is some of the things the democrats have passed in the past. they say you need to work backwards to move forwards and release some of those issues like regulatory things in place for housing. >> let's talk a little about this conservatorship aspect of this. there is going to be push back to that. do we know how much the governor is going to try to press that issue forward? >> it has not been clear exactly. he pointed to san francisco in some of the efforts that london breed and the city have talked about. but you're right, it is a human rights issue, that will be fought. >> we know how bad the homeless problem here is in the bay area. i grew up here. i've never seen anything like this in my life. you came to us from los angeles. how bad is it in southern california as well? >> there's no doubt the problem has only gotten worse, and it's stretched to areas that you
5:34 pm
would not expect to see a lot of the homeless community. a lot of the areas he's focusing are on are l.a. county and oakland. he said these are the areas that have the most issues right now that have an immediate need. >> greg lee, thank you. and if you miss today's state of the state address, you can go to our ktvu facebook page, and you can watch the entire address there. president trump was in the central valley this afternoon as greg mentioned, talking to farmers in bakersfield about their water needs. he was joined by california republicans, including congressman devin nunes, kevin mccarthy, and tom mcclintock. david bernhart says it will use new technology to make sure it is not wasted. the president accused the state of chronic mismanagement of water. >> can you imagine a state
5:35 pm
being rationed when you have millions and millions of gallons being poured out into the pacific ocean that you could have, and you'd have more water than you'd know what to do with, it's crazy. >> the president signed an executive order changing environmental rules, but the state and conservation groups could sue. the president then headed to phoenix for a campaign rally this evening. a federal judge in phoenix today upheld an injunction requiring migrants to have clean mats and blankets if they're held longer than 12 hours. the issues came to light after a group of migrants sued in 2015. they said border patrol was holding immigrants in cold, overcrowded, unsanitary, and inhumane conditions. a judge today ordered a preliminary injunction, issued in 2016, to become permanent. the judge also barred the agency from using bathrooms for sleeping. nine candidates will take the stage in las vegas tonight

5:37 pm
his policies. he is going to be well prepared to address some of the past criticism, whether it's stop and frisk, the massageny. >> reporter: ahead of the debate, the biden campaign is attacking bloomberg. bloomberg's campaign responding with clips of the former vice president supporting bloomberg. >> the thing i like about mike, it's not about words. it's always about action. >> reporter: even president trump weighed in on the former mayor tweeting what mini mike is doing is nothing less than a large scale illegal contribution. >> reporter: there are two candidates who won't be on stage. tulsi gabbard, and tom steyer are both in the race, but did not qualify for the debate. a bad guy picked up the wrong, or rather picked the wrong restaurant to hold up an armed robbery. hear from the off duty officers who just happened to be on a
5:38 pm
date inside that restaurant. tom steyer will beat donald trump on the economy. his people over profits plan makes a living wage a right. creates thousands of good paying green jobs in california. and provides a 10% tax cut for everyone making under $250,000. tom's plan also makes health care a right, by adding a public option to obamacare. protects union negotiated plans. and ensures californians can make their own health care choices. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.

5:44 pm
