The comedian and former co-host of “The View” tweeted a photo of Collins's family, asking if the Maine Republican thought they were proud of her.
“Woman, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, you have betrayed us all.” O’Donnell wrote. “Dear god, ask for forgiveness, redeem your soul tomorrow.”

O’Donnell then attempted to tweet directly at Collins, although she used an incorrect Twitter handle, telling the senator to call her if she wanted to “negotiate” the $2 million offer.
Collins and Flake both voted for the bill, which has been criticized as a boon for the wealthy and corporations, pushing it through the Senate early Wednesday morning.
The House also voted to pass the bill, but will have to vote again on Wednesday because of two provisions that the Senate said did not comply with budget rules.
It is illegal to offer money to public officials with the intent to influence official acts, like voting on a bill, but it is unclear if O’Donnell’s tweet was meant as a serious offer.
