Sen. Rand Paul said he supports the House charging former IRS official Lois Lerner with contempt of Congress to put pressure on her to testify.
"You know, contempt is something you can go to jail for," the Kentucky Republican said. "And it doesn't happen often. In fact, I'm not sure if we ever had someone go to prison for a contempt order, but it is something that has a significant penalty. So she will have to decide, is she going to risk going to jail or testify in a truthful manner?"
