Just over a year ago today, Michael Moore broke the law by attempting to bribe electors into changing their vote against President Trump.
He did this in plain sight, on both Twitter and a Facebook post that still exists.
You can read his entire tirade here.
Per Townhall, as pointed out by political comedian Tim Young, Moore’s offer to pay the fine for voting for someone other than Trump is a felony and violation of 52 USC 10307 (c), and is punishable with up to five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.

The text of the law, with relevant parts highlighted:
(c) False information in registering or voting; penalties
Whoever knowingly or willfully gives false information as to his name, address or period of residence in the voting district for the purpose of establishing his eligibility to register or vote, or conspires with another individual for the purpose of encouraging his false registration to vote or illegal voting, or pays or offers to pay or accepts payment either for registration to vote or for voting shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both: Provided, however, That this provision shall be applicable only to general, special, or primary elections held solely or in part for the purpose of selecting or electing any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the United States Senate, Member of the United States House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, Guam, or the Virgin Islands, or Resident Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
Now, more reporters are asking the obvious question – why isn’t Michael Moore in jail for this obvious crime? When will he be prosecuted and face justice?
