Rosie O’Donnell Tries to Bribe Susan Collins and Jeff Flake on Twitter

Rosie O’Donnell, formerly a comedian and television personality, may find herself facing federal bribery charges after she offered two U.S. Senators $2 million to vote against the GOP tax plan in a tweet on Tuesday.

O’Donnell, who once had her own television show, now plays the role of a far-left, anti-Trump Twitter personality. Long a foe of President Trump, O’Donnell has done her best to cash in on the rivalry to increase her fame.

But she may have taken things too far in her attempts to stop Trump’s legislative agenda on Tuesday night:

The comedian offered $2 million to two GOP senators if they would vote against the tax plan. O’Donnell told Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to direct message her on Twitter for the money.

The offer is in direct violation of federal law, according to 18 U.S. Code Section 201:

Whoever directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official or person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or promises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any other person or entity, with intent to influence any official act… shall be fined under this title or not more than three times the monetary equivalent of the thing of value, whichever is greater, or imprisoned for not more than fifteen years, or both, and may be disqualified from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.

The violation of this law carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
