Did Claire McCaskill Violate Senate Ethics Rules?

The Daily Caller: Claire McCaskill | Senate Fundraising Rules:
“I’m asking regular folks to be my super PAC,” Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” from inside the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building while discussing how super PACs are targeting her.
However, that appears to run afoul of Senate ethics rules:
“Senate members and staff may not receive or solicit campaign contributions in any federal building,” according to the Senate Ethics Committee website, which also declares: “No Campaign Activity in a Federal Building.” 
It is against the law to fundraise on government property.
