“Florida Senate Republicans crack down on foreign-language interpreters for voting”

Marc Caputo:

Desiline Victor, the 102-year-old North Miami voter who became a symbol of Florida’s elections woes, could again find it tough to cast a ballot now that the Republican-controlled state Senate voted Tuesday to keep a crack down on foreign-language interpreters at the polls.

The Senate maintained the last-minute measure on what appeared to be a party-line voice vote while debating a bill designed to reverse the effects of an election law that helped create long lines and suppress the vote in 2012.

Two questions: (1) This is the new outreach to Latino voters? (2) This is the response to make lines shorter at the polls in Florida?

I expect a successful federal lawsuit against such a provision if it gets included in a new Florida election law.
