Comedian Rosie O’Donnell in a tweet late Tuesday offered millions in cash to senators who vote against the Republican tax plan.
Her tweet called specifically on Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine. Ms. O’Donnell offered $2 million to each senator to vote no. She then followed up telling Ms. Collins specifically to call if she wanted to negotiate.

Both Ms. Collins and Mr. Flake voted in favor of the tax plan. The bill goes back to the House due to a procedural issue, then assuming the revote passes, will head to President Trump’s desk.
Offering money to a lawmaker in exchange for changing a vote, or voting a particular way, is illegal.
