6:00 pm
chilling cold tonight. >> oh girl, i still think it is worse than it was last night. >> why is that? >> because the wind, man, it is all the windchills. >> the darn wind. >> yeah. well anyway currently right now, 24 degrees. and are we expecting more snow in the forecast? >> we have had some flakes in the forecast. we'll talk about the lows this morning, this is just pristine. nothing has happened since the last 24 hours. now, we'll start with the lows this morning. it is 2 below at dulles. that's as cold as they have been in 18 years. 12 downtown, one in gaithersburg, the highs today, most folks, they made it into the 20s. 28 officially at national and 24 rather in dulles. in terms of temperatures, we're looking at the teens. but the lower 20s downtown. we'll drop to 22 downtown, but 16 in gaithersburg and 25 in manassas. we'll factor in the wind. this is why it feels worse. it feels like 2 in gaithersburg and 8 right here and feels like
6:01 pm
7 in leesburg. the lows tonight, single digits across the burbs. 2 in leesburg and fairfax will be at 6:00 and even 9 downtown will be 12. so this is fresh arctic air. we'll come back and tell you when we'll have flakes. >> you're like a kid. he is just loving this. >> yes, we won't hear you. does that change the forecast maybe? >> just maybe. all right, we'll see you guys in a bit. virginia is now front and center in the debate over legalizing the same-sex marriage. today the new attorney general, they announced that his office is asking a federal court to strike down the voter approved constitution amendment banning gay marriage. republicans are angry and vowing to fight back. >> reporter: just 12 days after the democrat was sworn into
6:02 pm
office as virginia's attorney general, he has set off a fire storm of the controversy. >> we have looked at the law, concluding that the law is unconstitutional. >> he has no authority to do this. he is attacking the constitution of virginia approved by the people of virginia. >> reporter: it was the republican's bill that asked voters to approve a constitutional amendment, banning the same-sex marriage, which they did. >> that was eight years ago. very shortly after that i saw how it hurt a lot of people. >> reporter: now he said that banned is unconstitutional and he is joining two same-sex couples asking them to strike it down. >> they are striking down the laws that treat same-sex couples as second class citizens. the supreme court is presented with the facts that we have in this case. then they would strike down their banned. >> where does he come out saying that you have no
6:03 pm
argument at all? that is really arrogant. >> reporter: they say that he is violating his oath of office by not upholding the state law, especially e that voters approve. over the past 60 years the state of virginia has fought against desegregating schools. now they say that they want virginia to be on the right side of the history. >> it's a state law and a state constitution that they could not violate their constitution. and i'm obligated to follow the law, which is what i have done. >> in richmond, peggy fox, wusa9. all right now to a follow up on an ongoing four-month wusa9 investigation. regardless of how close you look at this speed camera location, you will not see the speed camera. that is because the cops pulled it down. the police in prince george's county alaskanologyed that the camera issued 2,059 tickets at $40 each a total of $82,360 in fines. just yet, they issued a
6:04 pm
statement saying all those people ticketed will get their money back as a result of our inquiry. i know a lot of this came from repairing the internet data so the public notices that it is required by law? >> yes, which is why i brought you over here to our internet center. this is the internet site where they are required by law to list all the speed cameras as all jurisdictions are. every jurisdiction in maryland is required to list each camera on their website prior to activations. and then we'll put in the open record requests for police to prove that they had published them in a newspaper. and now that resulted in an open record request, which got us this stack of documents. so this is what they send us as police say they believe it will show that they have published every camera. but that there were still six
6:05 pm
cameras that they couldn't account for as we asked them again and again and that is when police kind of went silent on us. is >> okay, so we did ask about all six. as they were telling us about this one that they did acknowledge, that it is an illegal camera. it showed the publication of the camera as we are skeptical and finding the hard copies of the newspapers right now to ensure that in fact they were legally published. >> yes, they could consider hounding it, but for the people getting speeding tickets, they want to ensure that they are getting legal tickets. >> reporter: the other cameras are actually good? >> well, they have dozens of cameras, which we have determined were properly published. so if you get a ticket there, you will get a ticket. it's the six tickets we're focusing on right now. >> all right, we know that you'll stay on top of it.
6:06 pm
they will make sure to follow the law. if you know where to look or if you have a pet peeve, let us know. log on to >> reporter: so have you been hopping over mountains of snow or perhaps sliding on the icy sidewalks as you are trying to get to work? it seems like not all the businesses here in d.c. are getting the message in front of the business. we're live in front of the business. and so now where are you? >> i'm at wisconsin, just a couple blocks away from the station and this is the bank. but take a look at what i'm standing on here. soon it will be ice and eventually it will be slush and it is still here. we asked people on twitter to let us know about the dangerous sidewalks that they think we need to check out as they tweeted me about it. there is a cozc restaurant here
6:07 pm
so we went to check it out. is >> so what do you think of the walkway? >> i think it needs to be shoveled. >> yes, absolutely. >> who do you think is responsible in this? >> the people that own a business. are you responsible for clearing it off? >> i don't believe that we are responsible, no. >> all right, do you feel like there is a little cain there, trying to hobble on through it? that's what it feels like on the corner. it is very dangerous for people. it doesn't seem like there is anything active going on, but it was very nice and he was letting the manager know. he doesn't want anything to happen to anyone. it makes sense. but it takes common sense to know that this is a mess.
6:08 pm
