Rand Paul Agrees on Some Issues With Outgoing AG Eric Holder

Friday, 06 Feb 2015 08:30 PM

Republican presidential prospect Rand Paul says he agrees with outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder on some criminal justice issues.

Speaking at a rally in a Des Moines-area winery, Paul says he applauds Holder's efforts to reduce seizure of property from people facing no criminal charges. He also supports reducing penalties for possession of marijuana.

Paul says jailing young adults for "55 years for selling marijuana is obscene," and endorses getting them "back to work and back into productive society."

Paul was in Iowa, home of the leadoff nominating caucuses, promoting his bill to audit the Federal Reserve, which he argues is insolvent. He plans to appear with freshman Republican Rep. Rod Blum Saturday before attending an Iowa State University men's basketball game.
