In his exclusive interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer last night, embattled Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) claimed that he has “never used the internet“:

Matt, you won’t believe this. But I don’t use the Internet. I don’t have a computer at my desk. I’ve never used the Internet. It’s just not what I do. I e-mail with my BlackBerry. No, I did not know that. I had no reason to know that.

But as the Washington Examiner has discovered, Craig actually has extensive experience with the Internet:

–”‚He’s a member of the Congressional Internet Caucus.

–”‚He co-sponsored a bill designating June 2007 as National Internet Safety Month.

–”‚He was presented with the 2007 Internet Keep Safe Coalition Award.

–”‚On his Web site, he lists as a top accomplishment a Silver Mouse Award given to his site in 2003 and 2006 by the Congressional Management Foundation in 2003 and 2006.

–”‚When he endorsed Mitt Romney for president, he did so on YouTube.

Maybe Craig can give Larry King some tips.
