"I promise to give 2 million dollars to senator susan collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake if they vote NO", she tweeted. Miss O'Donnell reacted in anger when pundits pointed out the illegality in her efforts to buy off Republican Sens.

"2 million dollars to Senator Susan Collins and 2 million to Senator Jeff Flake if they vote NO".

O'Donnell also insulted Republican Sen.

Rosie O'Donnell is facing a backlash after offering, via Twitter, to pay USA 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. She then asked them to direct message her adding, "no s-t 2 million cash each". She made it clear she opposes the bill because it could result in millions of people losing health insurance, and in a third tweet on the issue, she reiterated her offer: "2 million to any GOP senator who votes no on KILLING AMERICANS".

"SEE SUSAN STOOD AND SAID - NO - I WONT KILL AMERICANS - AND NOW SHE SAYS "YES - YES I WILL KILL AMERICANS" FUCK U SUSAN COLLINS - U MAKE ME SICK - UR NO WOMAN [sic]", O'Donnell wrote.

The House approved the measure, 224-201, passing it for the second time in two days after a procedural foul-up forced another vote on Wednesday.

As one can imagine, the social media backlash against O'Donnell's tweets got ugly and saw Ben Shapiro tweet, "LOCK HER UP!".

The House passed the tax-reform package Wednesday, sending the bill to the president's desk.

"It's a big no-no in politics, and while many politicians have surely gotten away with accepting bribes, many others have spent years in prison for taking them".

And the apparently tongue-in-cheek overture has conservatives crying foul, accusing the liberal, Trump-trashing comic of attempting to bribe public officials.
