US Senator and delicate southern flower Lindsey Graham has, in his own words, never sent an email in his life. He also just so happens to be a member of the Senate Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law. Naturally.
The bizarre statement was made during Graham’s appearance on Meet the Press earlier this morning, after host Chuck Todd asked the senator if he himself had a private email account (in reference to the recent Hilary Clinton debacle). To which Graham responded:
I don’t email. You can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one. [laughter] I don’t know what that makes me.
Well, Senator, in addition to it making you less technologically adept than the nation’s legion of racist grandfathers, it also makes you wildly unqualified to be deciding on anything related to internet policy. Btu then again, what else is new. [Huffington Post]
