Did Rosie O’Donnell Just Commit A Federal Crime On Twitter?

Did Rosie O’Donnell Just Commit A Federal Crime On Twitter?

Hours before the U.S. Senate passed the tax overhaul bill early Wednesday morning, Rosie O’Donnell tweeted at Republican senators, offering them $2 million in cash to cast a vote against the GOP tax plan, which she said would “KILL AMERICANS FOR THE SUOER RICH” (sic).

Yeah, she really did that.

Offering members of Congress money or anything else of value in exchange for an official act is a federal crime. Louise Mensch tried to help O’Donnell out, but the comedienne was hearing NONE. OF. IT.

Both Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) voted in favor of the tax overhaul bill.

“Do u think your family is proud of u @sennatorcollins?” O’Donnelly tweeted along with a photo the Collins family. “woman – mother – grandmother – sister – daughter u have betrayed us all.”
