Lindsey Graham broke the law on live televison.

LINDSEY GRAHAM: I think people in South Carolina are excited about Judge Barrett. I don’t know how much it affected fundraising today, but if you want to help me close the gap…I think the contest in South Carolina has taken on sort of a national profile.

Several congressmen, including Eric Swalwell, were appalled by his fundraising in the Senate building, which, again, is against the law.

UPDATE: The penalty for breaking this law is fines and jail.

A person who violates this section shall be fined not more than $5,000, imprisoned not more than 3 years, or both.
