Today’s news:

Voters must understand English

TimesLedger Newspapers

A recent press release by the always-photographed state Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Little Neck) and state Sen. Toby Stavisky (D-Whitestone) indicates they want to add another language to our cumbersome paper ballot with legislation they are introducing in Albany.

Aren’t Americans who have become naturalized citizens supposed to be able to read, write and understand English? When the two legislators go on the stump, promoting their candidacies, do they speak in English and Bangladeshi?

This is America. How come there is no outcry to add Yiddish to our Election Day nonsense?
