Roberts part of ‘Senate Luddite Caucus’

Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., told Politico that – like Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. – he doesn’t use e-mail. “I haven’t used it since I was chairman of the Intelligence Committee and learned that any e-mails would be going to the Chinese and to the Russians and to the French and to the British and to everybody else, including everything I said on my iPhone.” Actually, Roberts ceased to chair the committee about six months before the first iPhone was released in 2007, but his point is well-taken. Roberts said he uses his cellphone most frequently to text his grandson. He’s also been known to tweet “EMAW.” – Rhonda Holman
