Rosie O’Donnell made a last-ditch attempt to halt the GOP’s landmark tax bill when she offered $2 million to any Congress member to change their vote — and some are seeing the move as an illegal bribe.

“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,” O’Donnell tweeted on Tuesday night. “no sh-t 2 million cash each.”

The former talk show host singled out Flake (R-Ariz.) and Collins (R-Maine), who were considered swing votes on the bill. Critics argued that Rosie’s bone-headed move could leave her open her to criminal charges.
