Did Rosie O’Donnell try to bribe Republican senators?

Rosie O’Donnell said she was serious when she offered Republican senators a payout if they voted against the tax bill. If she was, that would constitute a felony, as right wing sites, like The Daily Caller, have been quick to point out.

O’Donnell offered payouts of $2 million to each GOP lawmaker who cast a “No” vote. In particular, she set her sights on Sens. Susan Collins and Jeff Flake.

The bill passed the Senate with a 51-48 vote.

While O’Donnell would most likely just say she was joking, and remind that she is a comedian, if called to account, it is probably best not to use Twitter for such activities, even in jest.

Plus, everyone knows if you want to buy politicians legally all you have to do is set up a Super PAC.
