Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, has introduced a bill that would officially stop paying any federal employee who was currently held in contempt of Congress.

Farenthold specifically mentioned Attorney General Eric Holder after introducing the legislation in the House of Representatives, insisting that he should not receive a paycheck after failing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal.
