Rosie O'Donnell Tried To Bribe Reps
« on: December 20, 2017, 10:58:07 AM »
Late on Tuesday evening, as Republicans moved to pass a historic tax reform package, Rosie O’Donnell — nemesis of Donald Trump and former television star — tweeted out offers of bribery to Republican senators to vote down the bill. She didn’t just do it once. She did it over and over again:

Bribery is illegal under federal law. Here’s the relevant portion of 18 USC §201(b):

Whoever—

(1)directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official or person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or promises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any other person or entity, with intent—

(A) to influence any official act; or

(B) to influence such public official or person who has been selected to be a public official to commit or aid in committing, or collude in, or allow, any fraud, or make opportunity for the commission of any fraud, on the United States; or

(C) to induce such public official or such person who has been selected to be a public official to do or omit to do any act in violation of the lawful duty of such official or person;

…shall be fined under this title or not more than three times the monetary equivalent of the thing of value, whichever is greater, or imprisoned for not more than fifteen years, or both, and may be disqualified from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.

Absolutely!!!
Whether it was public, or done secretly, it's still a bribe and the law is the law.
