Check out Entertainment Weekly’s take on Rosie O’Donnell attempting to bribe GOP senators to vote no on tax reform:


Rosie O’Donnell is facing a backlash after offering, via Twitter, to pay U.S. senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake $2 million each in exchange for their “no” vote on the Republican tax bill which appears headed toward passage in Congress.

O’Donnell, who currently stars in the Showtime series SMILF, faced a backlash from conservatives on social media, some of whom even suggested she was in violation of the law for seemingly attempting to bribe an elected official. “Rosie actually broke the law with the tweet itself,” conservative writer Ben Shapiro argued, setting off a firestorm. “Attorney General Sessions, get cracking!”
