Rosie O’Donnell claims she did not know she had exceeded campaign finance limits. Then why did she use four different versions of her name and five different residential addresses?
Left-wing activist and comedian Rosie O’Donnell has been caught contributing more than the legal limit to five Democratic political candidates. She used four variations of her name and five different New York addresses to make the contributions. This may show intent to disguise them.
Federal Election Commission rules limit contributions to federal candidates to $2,700 per election. Donors can max that out in a primary race, then max it out again during a general election for the same candidate. O’Donnell contributed more than $2,700 each to five candidates during the primary race.

The offense is punishable by large fines from the FEC. The FEC can also choose to let a donor move an excess donation from a primary race into the general election or refund it. It doesn’t have to impose the full amount of the fines, and it certainly does not have to criminally prosecute the individual. More
D’Souza tweeted about #RosieODonnell, “Five times more egregious than my case. Now let’s see if Lady Justice is truly blind.”

Of course not. Two sets of rules and laws in this country apparently.

Definitely not fair that Mr. D’Souza was jailed for 8 months for donations he made for himself and friends; while Rosie O does so in four names and using five addresses?! Then claims ignorance?! https://t.co/KHtBiOx7E5#LiberalHypocrisy
