Rosie O'Donnell Breaks Federal Campaign Laws

A New York Post exclusive says filings show that comedian Rosie O'Donnell gave a "combined $5,400 in campaign contributions over the limit." O'Donnell responded saying she assumed ActBlue, the site she donates through, would limit "donations to the max allowed." Records uncovered show O'Donnell gave a combined $5,400 in contributions over the limit to five federal Democratic candidates... Oh, and used five different New York addresses and four variations of her name. Yet O'Donnell says she has done nothing wrong.

O'Donnell donated $2,950 to California Democrat Adam Schiff, a seventeen year veteran of the House for his primary, according to his campaign filings. His campaign has never returned messages seeking comment on the issue.

Lauren Underwood, an Illinois Democratic Congressional candidate, reported $4,200 from O'Donnell for her primary. And Omar Vaid a Democratic candidate from Saten Island, NY received $3,450 from O'Donnell.

The social media site Twitter has been blowing up over the Rosie O'Donnell story.
