get paid for reporting idol thing vehicles. >> what this bill does is it says look responsible citizens who can sign up and get properly trained and then go out and videotape of violation posted onto the web site and at the ticket is issued that citizen can get up to. >> what this bill would allow its citizens to take a class and get registered to report these vehicles. >> i'm guilty when i'm doing stories here in the cold. i sit in my car waiting so that's a violation? >> yes it is. >> that's really good to know for chasers. >> i met with one of the number one advocates of this and brought it to her attention. george pac and ham. >> in 2012 there were approximately 400 homicides in new york city but over 3000

information booths and creating a subway concierge. >> subway system have tech solutions to improve sufficiency but this is a human solution to bring people down there to direct traffic. >> i called them to confirm the rumors and they dismissed it saying these are proposals and nothing is set in stone but if you look at the mta history the rumors aren't far off. two years ago a pilot program came under consideration. eliminating all booth positions and 25 stations and instead the workers would combine their jobs. some would provide information and managing crowd so it would eliminate jobs which is something we see happening now especially since we are facing a 15 billion-dollar deficit funding the mta.
>> i am 65 and i get lost. >> you can see the lines outside the destination booth. seniors depend on it with their discounted tickets and tourists. i spoke with station manager himself to see if he has any idea of what's next for the new and improved subway station. he didn't want to be on camera but you can hear his voice as he speaks. >> we really don't have any say in it. >> does it scare you about your job? >> yes my job security is definitely threatened, yes. we are more expendable. >> i feel bad for anyone who might lose their job and have to adapt but i think the signs with the mta are horrible. the transit as monitors on the platform and you can see the monitors. you don't need to talk to somebody.

this is half on the red and half on the green. what does that mean? on this side it says lol j.. you might think the city would have its parking system functioning at least in its most high-profile places in trenton. it's probably the statehouse. you would be wrong. state street in front of trenton city hall eight or 10 cars parked along here. no money in the meters. a car and a space no money in the meter. a car and a space no money in the meters. not a parking ticket anywhere to be seen. car and space no money in the meter. car and space no money in the meter, no ticket on the windshield. there's a dude sitting in the car. inside of this one it says free. at least he's honest. a car and a space no money in the meter. the meter is broken.
here's the meter with no signs whatsoever. let's drop a quarter in and see what happens in and see the number pops up. nothing. this is the third, fourth, fifth broken meter i found in 10 minutes of searching. kara expired no money in the meter not just an arbitrary street but in front of the state library in front of the state state museum right in front of the state state capitol. if you know no one is going to write a ticket i'm not blaming you. or you can pay the meter. you are parked illegally. fair enough. i wouldn't worry too much about it. how much money is trenton passing up on? it's ridiculous. he's not paying it in his logic is pretty good.

>> united states senator bob menendez as you know is facing criminal corruption charges. >> even if he's found guilty they will drag him out of his office kicking and screaming. >> what you mixed -- missed on interpike. getting too real about mexican food. and we will explain what this hair-raising situation is all about. more coming up in today's search engine on "chasing news." ♪
>> high-speed chase. alison. >> check out this video for men at the jersey shore. they surfed through the whole winter cold snow everything. they went for it. >> guys united states senator bob menendez as you know is going to be facing criminal corruption charges coming down from the department of justice in and we have been talking about it because these charges
that have been developing at least from what we hear from reports over several years. we wanted to bring in someone that can weigh in on the issue specifically on the political impact not only on new jersey's on senator bob menendez but also the democratic leadership, their relationship with senator harry reid. we have kellyanne conway a nationally known and successful pollster and of course a jersey girl. thanks for joining us. what is your take on this? >> i don't want anyone to think this is about -- this man has given close $2 million between his family and him to senator menendez re-election efforts through political action committees and the pro-citizens united world. hundreds of thousands of dollars all told then you can leave it to yourself what does he get in return? this is a man who has had private meetings with senator reid and apparently had him on his jet in boston.
this is a man who paid $30,000 to meet with president obama and complained that he was not treated the way he thought he should be treated. yesterday there was an article that talked about a meeting that senator reid and senator menendez had with then hhs secretary kathleen sibelius. what was the meaning about? do you think it was ensuring millions of americans under obama helping new jerseyans understand their medicaid? no, it was senator menendez complaining his friend had been treated unfairly in billing practices under medicare and medicaid and kathleen sibelius called then to have this meeting. people should worry about things like that. >> to me i was somewhat shocked that a man who has spent more than 40 years in public service starting at the school board and hudson county when he was in his 20s, he can just up and write a 58,000-dollar check. how do you do that on the senator's salary?
>> we call them politicians. they are referred to as public servants and if you look at the way senator menendez ran for the senate seat as a man for the people you can't hallow -- can't count how many folks he has helped. then you hear we can make so much more money if we were in a law firm or worked in business and i'm sacrificing. people ought to know they are not eating ramen noodles. they have lots of dell. >> don't forget you are dealing with a political wolverine. he was the mayor of union city. he eats politics eats politics in his breakfast cereal. even if found guilty we will have to drag them out of his office kicking and screaming. >> he is not intimidated when he spoke to a gaggle of reporters saying i'm not going anywhere. >> will continue to talk to you as the scandal continues to unfold and if it does change will be an opportunity for governor christie to appoint another united states annexes so we will see how the story plays
