Rosie O’Donnell sent out a flurry of tweets late Tuesday night – offering Republican senators $2million in cash in exchange for a ‘no’ vote on Trump’s tax reform bill.
‘So how about this, I promise to give 2 million dollars to senator susan collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake if they vote NO’ the comedian desperately wrote on Twitter.
‘NO I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS FOR THE SUOER [super] RICH. No s*** 2 million cash each’ she wrote, telling the lawmakers to send her a direct message on Twitter if they were interested in negotiating.
The bribery didn’t work, though, as Senate Republicans managed to push through the new tax bill by a narrow and last minute margin of 51-48.
It’s also a felony to offer money to a politician to influence acts such as voting on a bill -though O’Donnell may not know that, or may have meant the offer as a joke.
