Rosie O’Donnell has spent the last few years obsessively trying to take President Donald Trump down. Now, she may have just slipped up and done something that could put her in prison, where she belongs.
“Rosie O’Donnell made illegally over-sized campaign donations to at least five Democratic federal candidates, according to a Post analysis of campaign filings,” the New York Postreported. “The liberal comedian has regularly broken Federal Election Commission rules limiting the total any one person can give to an individual candidate at $2,700 per election. The limit applies separately to primaries, runoffs and general elections.”
“Filings show O’Donnell gave a combined $5,400 in contributions over the limit to the five candidates and used five different New York addresses and four variations of her name. Wow, that sure appears to be a straight case of trying to “game the system,” the Post continued.
Campaign filings show that O’Donnell donated $2,950 to California Rep. Adam Schiff, a 17-year veteran of the House, for his primary. She also donated $4,200 to Lauren Underwood, an Illinois congressional candidate, for her primary as well as $3,450 to Omar Vaid, a little-known congressional candidate in Staten Island and Brooklyn.
“My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing Trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed,” O’Donnell said when confronted with what she has done.
It should be noted that conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced to eight months in prison and a $30,000 fine for violating campaign finance laws.
Five times more egregious than my case. Now let’s see if Lady Justice is truly blind https://t.co/FoOerJzRPO

She is an awful person and a criminal. She needs to go to prison. #ArrestRosieOdonnel

We can only hope that Rosie ends up being locked up over this.
