https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/bribery
Overview

Bribery refers to the offering, giving, soliciting, or receiving of any item of value as a means of influencing the actions of an individual holding a public or legal duty. This type of action results in matters that should be handled objectively being handled in a manner best suiting the private interests of the decision maker. Bribery constitutes a crime and both the offeror and the recipient can be criminally charged.

Proof of bribery requires demonstrating a “quid pro quo” relationship in which the recipient directly alters behavior in exchange for the gift.
Seems to meet the definition so far.
Because the relationship does not occur directly enough, campaign donations from corporations or individuals to political candidates do not constitute bribery. Another element of proving bribery includes proving intent to influence the discharging of another’s official duties. Some statutes also require proof that both parties understand and agree to the arrangement. Attempts to bribe exist at common law and under the Model Penal Code, and often, the punishment for attempted bribery and completed bribery are identical. Solicitation of a bribe also constitutes a crime and is completed regardless of whether the solicitation results in the receipt of a valuable gift.
Still don't see any reason why it wouldn't meet the definition.
Here is the actual Federal statute:
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/201
(b) Whoever—
(1) directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official or person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or promises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any other person or entity, with intent—
(A) to influence any official act; or
Depends what the word "corruptly" means maybe?
http://www3.ce9.uscourts.gov/jury-instructions/node/349
"the district court correctly instructed the jury that ‘corruptly’ means ‘performed with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.’"
She may be off the hook because "corruptly" might mean trying to get some sort of unlawful benefit for oneself, whereas it isn't exactly clear how how Rosie herself would personally benefit from this. However it would obviously be illegal for the senators to accept this offer.

She could try to claim it was satire, which no reasonable man would take seriously, then sue under RICO.

I think she was drunk posting.

If she's found guilty of bribery, she should get probation and AA meetings. :BigGrin3:
