8:03 am
that recording was leaked to two newspapers. but as spokeswoman for a utility funded group supporting amendment calls the legal challenge political grand standing. she argues that the amendment will protect consumers in the end. sko what about those ballots that have already been cast? those could be affected too. a second suit was filed asking the court to order florida secretary of state to embargo the counting of the votes until the court makes a final ruling. >> and if you're wondering how it may get play a florida review all ballots initiatives and not misleading. >> back in march the supreme court justice ruled that it was fine. by a veet of 4-3 one judge that does not degree wrote a strongly worded dissent saying the ballot language is a wolf in sheeping clothing. we will keep you posted republican party of florida claims broward county isil legally opening tens of thousands of mail-in ballots and
8:04 am
not happen. new this morning the letter sent to elections supervisor brenda snipes says the party was told that people are opening the ballots without permission. but snipes says her office is following the rules that they have done nothing wrong. even still, hours after receiving letter yesterday miami herald reports that snipes made ad compromise with gop party which florida to avoid any more accusations that this year's election is rigged. . and as republican party at least as far as the president is concerned has clawed its way back into race here in florida. in two new polls it shows they are pretty much tied with hillary clinton having slight lead. but trump says he is more convinced than ever that he is going to win the white house. >> but hillary clinton is not letting anything slip away. she's aggress illinois trying to counter the late surge from trump. and she's working hard to win the women's vote trying to mobilize women against trump.
8:05 am
republican that is starting to lean blue hoping to flip it back. but trump is slowly creeping up in it is in the polls just five days left in election both candidates need to work really hard to get voters' confidence. 29 electoral votes are up for grabs in here in can. donald trump is in jacksonville, that's on top of his two campaigning events yesterday. president obama is going to be in jacksonville too. and miami today to campaign for hillary. she's spent already. >> hillary clinton email controversy is costing her in the policies are showing that. but now the attention is starting to turn to the f.b.i. and their timing on announcing the investigation. and new this morning we've learned the feds knew about emails week before director comey notified congress. senior f.b.i. official told washington post that comey was told about the emails before the formal briefing last week. comey didn't say anything to congress earlier because officials wanted more information before launching an
8:06 am
and comey is facing backlash for publicizing the investigation so close to election when there is so little known about what they were looking for. >> comey says he has had enough information to go to congress to get the warrant. >> president obama is one person who has been quiet about the cover until now. he addressed the f.b.i.'s response to the reopened investigation into hillary clinton's email practices. saying there is still no evidence that she broke the law. the president says he does not medal with their jobs and investigation just as he did the last time. saying the f.b.i. does not open investigations on innuendo or incomplete information. 8::0 eight right now make school threats is crime doing it can get you arrests. students just are not listening. this morning a 15-year-old pasco student did not listen and now under arrest for doing that. shayla is live at the ridge wood high school. this is at least the seventh this year in this county alone. and shayla the superintendent
8:07 am

8:08 am
once again ask all parents to make it clear. this is not okay to joke about school shootings such threats are not a laughing matter and neither are their legal consequences. now the new terroristic threat law took effect on october the first. and it really string strengthens penalties out there for making threats to shoot up schools. it now it's a second degree felony here in florida. that means you're looking at up to fitch years to $10,000 fine. so, this is something that comes with very serious consequences. just last montana we can tell you there were a couple of cases right here in pasco county in which middle school students were arrested for threatening messages uncovered by law enforcement of school officials. the youngest in that case 12 years old. so of course they will continue to follow this and keep you posted as we learn anything further. we know ahead of that

senators president of united states, you got to keep in mind that the elections are actually run at the state level. there are state laws rules, regulations election officers who do the elections within each state. and so when we talk about challenging a result. really what we're talking about the margin of victory for a particular candidate is so narrow in this state, that the state will either have a concessionary or a mandatory manual recount procedure. so we're talking less than half of a percentage victory. then we go into this manual recount phase. >> and depending on the candidate, you can make challenges to maybe the manual recount wasn't done correctly. you can bring those challenges in the state's supreme court. so that's kind of the a way. that's where it would start. right. this could a lengthy process, rght? >> well, it can be expedition is priority.

messy in the end. fingers crossed. yes. i think that too, you have inauguration day after the first of year. you're saying that 30 to 45-day window is not really enough to affect the presidencies. right. >> exactly. so ultimately the united states congress, they are the ones who pick the winner. so they are going to do that before inauguration day. so anything that hasn't been central settled or resolved before then is just and keep in mind within the states in meantime, so, maybe the republican candidate wins a particular state. and the democratic candidate wants to make a challenge. well if that state has elected democratic united states senators or house of representative members their votes are being recounted too. so party is going to say whoa time out candidate. whoa. our guys are already in there. we don't want to do. we're not part of problem you're

from different places. in another thing of course to consider is the circumstances to sway the election haves to line up just so. magic twois 70. if you're fighting about a state where the electoral college is only four votes, small state for election purposes it's probably not going to sway the elections one way or another. major spinning state. let's hope if there a constitute one stipulation can no more campaign ads. >> wednesday morning. and my presidential seal tie today. in support of the election. hopefully everybody. we hope so. all right. charley we'll get over to you right now. look at what you're up to charley. hey charley. best part campaign ads are 401k. because they have to buy those commercials from us. thank you.
