Sen. Rand Paul on Syria vote: "What comes after limited strikes?"

The Obama Administration is in the midst of a full-court press to try and garner support for striking Syria in response to the chemical weapons attack that occurred last month.

The President has picked up the support of key Congressional leaders, and today his senior officials made the case for action before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

How did it go? OutFront tonight is Senator Rand Paul, who sits on the committee and had a number of exchanges with Secretary of State John Kerry.

"We'll catch the governor another time around"

Sen. Rand Paul will be heading to New Jersey this month to help campaign for Republican Senate candidate Steve Lonegan, but there's one man he won't be seeing – the governor himself.

Chris Christie will be taking his wife on a little vacation for her 50th birthday that weekend, saying it wasn't even a choice to be made. How does that sit with the Senator from Kentucky?

The truth about the IRS: Revisiting the scandal

There is new evidence showing both sides had it wrong on the IRS scandal earlier this year.

Four months after employees were caught targeting specific political groups when considering tax exempt status, the IRS is still the subject of a congressional probe.

But as our Dana Bash found out in a special OutFront Investigation, the claims that are still being made by both Republicans and Democrats are far from the real story.

Tune in this week for more in-depth reporting on this important story.

Black employee wins "N-Word" lawsuit; is its use ever OK?

There can be a very high cost of using the "N-Word."

Tonight, a federal jury in New York has ordered the owner of an organization to pay a former employee $30,000 dollars in punitive damages for calling her the N-Word multiple times.

That jury already rejected the defense's argument that using the N-word was culturally acceptable because both the victim and her boss are black. We've talked extensively about this word and examined when – if ever – its use is appropriate.

OutFront tonight are CNN Legal Analyst Sunny Hostin and Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill.

Microsoft makes big mobile gamble in Nokia purchase

Microsoft is making a $7 billion dollar bet.

The software company has announced that it's forking over $7.2 billion to buy Nokia's smartphone business. The bold move is aimed at rejuvenating the two companies, which are quickly losing relevance in the mobile phone market.

But time is of the essence for Microsoft, as just today Apple sent out invitations to a company event next week where it's expected to roll out not one but two new iPhones – and in a variety of colors.

So will Microsoft's gamble pay off, or is it too little too late?
